Good Morning All,
The storms certainly did roll through yesterday - just about dinnertime for us. No hail (though some nearby had that), but very high winds, thunder, lightening...luckily no loss of power for us. Our temperature dropped quickly from 90 to 70! And today is only forecast to be in the 60's. And, of course, more rain forecast every day through the weekend. The garden will soon be a jungle!!
Joining Kat and friends for an Unraveled Wednesday post. So far, no unraveling:
The pattern is Medallion Lace - a free pattern on Ravelry. The yarn is Barn Cat from Valerie and is a delight to knit. The colorway is Varadero (the name of a Cuban town which...you will see...fits in very nicely with what I've been reading!!).
The lace pattern is 28 rows. I did 2.5 repeats. I wanted to make it 3, but I weighed the yarn and felt it might be a little too close to call. I wish I had made the cuff a bit longer, or just added 5 plain rows or so before starting the heel flap. But, I still think they will be lovely. The flap is now done (as of this a.m.) and I'm ready to turn the heel.
On the reading front, I am about 3/4 of the way through Mrs. Hemingway by Naomi Wood. So, finished the first 3 Mrs. Hemingways and onto the fourth. I'm enjoying this book. I've always enjoyed books that take place during that era (20's onward). And there's Cuba!! Cuba is where the parents of a friend of mine honeymooned in the 40's and they loved it. (And, thus the tie-in to the yarn from Valerie.)
I'm not counting on getting much knitting done today. It is "Inclusion Day" at work (oh boy!) where we are supposed to celebrate the differences between/among us. The nice part is there will be a catered lunch. Tonight Colin is coming for dinner since Mailing has some work function and I believe we are going to watch The Phantom Thread which I'm excited about (in spite of some of your reviews - lol).
That's my day! What's up with you?
