It's Friday!!! And another gorgeous day in Eastern PA. Rain is supposed to move in tomorrow and by Sunday we will be back in the 40's for high temperatures. But today we can pretend that Spring is here. I may need to leave work early....
Here is the Tygus (that is what Colin calls Tyg) all stretched out in the recliner that Fletch usually claims.
I love the way his leg is off the chair (and his tail). So comfy - cats are so great at relaxing.
Colin stopped by after work for dinner last night. It was so nice out and Fletch grilled hot and sweet Italian sausage and veggies (green pepper, onion, mushrooms, yellow squash and Brussels sprouts) and, after dinner, we had a fire in the pit. We had some Pinon wood that Fletch had picked up at either Home depot or Lowes, and it smelled just like incense.
Col took Mailing's socks with him and texted me late last night that they fit. Success!!
I'm up to row 93 or 94 on the Oaklet shawl. Yesterday I worked on it a bit at lunch and something just didn't look right. I thought I had dropped a stitch, so I picked one up. When I counted I realized I had too many stitches. Once I got home I looked at it more closely and realized it was even worse! Where I thought I had dropped a stitch, the strand of yarn had actually stretched out and there was a knot in the yarn! A KNOT! How could I have knit and not even realized it? I think sometimes just plain knitting and purling back and forth is so Zen-like that I go into a trance. Anyway, I was able to unpick the knot, but the yarn (Chroma from KnitPicks which I will NOT buy again) frayed a bit and I only had about 1/2 inch on each side to join. I **think** I did it, but at that point I put it away to prep the veggies for dinner. Fingers crossed please. I haven't looked at it since - too tired last night and no time this morning and I did not bring knitting with me to work today because I need to run to Trader Joe's at lunch time. Hopefully it will be ok when I look at it tonight.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
