Good Evening Everyone,
Well, winter is still here. I got up and went to work, but any icy forecast was in our future and my office closed early. I left shortly after Noon...got home...had a snack, took a nap, got up and had a shower and then knit. That's a win of a day for moi. Meanwhile, we have had sleet and some rain. I don't think anything is falling at the moment, but earlier when Fletch went out to take the trash to the curb and fill the bird feeders, he said the driveway was coated in ice. I'm happy to be home. And, could I be lucky enough to have a 2 hour delay in the a.m.? We shall see. It is supposed to warm up and actually be in the 40's tomorrow and 60 by Friday. Crazy Weather continues.
Meanwhile, on the knitting front:
This is the first of Colin's socks. He chose the colors. The cuff is Blue Moon Colossal Sock (600 yards!!) and the color is Sabertooth Caterpillar. It is 100% Merino, Next up we have Mineville Wool Super Sock in the color Constellation, 80% Merino and 20% nylon. Both bought on line. Colin picked out the colors and asked that I make them reversed. So the first sock will have the Sabertooth Caterpillar for the cuff, heel and toe and Constellation for the main body and foot. The second sock will have Constellation for the cuff, heel and toe and Sabertooth Caterpillar for the body and foot.
I couldn't find a pattern that I wanted to make for him, so I am winging it on my own. I decided to put cables on the leg of the sock. You can sort of see them in the picture...I think they will show up better on the other sock. It keeps the knitting interesting and I love cables, so a win!
I did manage to get the bills paid yesterday and Fletch is busy watching something on TV that I'm not really interested in...so the night is mine. I see more knitting in my future!
Have a great evening!
