February came in this morning with an absolutely gorgeous sky - all rosy pink and purple. Now? Just grey and cloudy. At least my drive in to the office was beautiful.
It's been proven once again that I don't remember what I have done. The other week my copy of By Hand Serial's 5th Lookbook arrived in my mailbox. Gorgeous. Yummy patterns. Enticing places to visit. This week a 2nd copy arrived in my mailbox. I got in touch with them and it turns out I ordered it twice. Yup...I have no idea why except I must have forgotten the first order.
So, who wants my extra copy? If more than one person responds, I'll do the random number thing.
I didn't work on designing my sock pattern last night, instead I just knit a few rows on the fingerless mitts. Five rows of ribbing left and the first one will be finished.
Remember the socks I was knitting with the pretty, tweedy Scottish wool? And then the yarn misbehaved and kept breaking?
Sunday night while watching Victoria, I wound the remaining 3 skeins. All of them broke in multiple places. I'm throwing it all in the trash, including the sock that got down to the mid-foot point. Life is too short to knit with crappy yarn. I'm sorry though, because the yarn is so pretty.
Lunchtime yesterday found me (munching on a pretzel and) starting The Woman who Smashed Codes and I'm finding it very interesting. I predict it will be a quick read!
That's it! Almost TGIF time (oh, and hot dogs and chili for lunch today). Our entire office is decorated with Eagles stuff - balloons, posters, stickers, etc. A bit much for this non-sports fan - LOL. Enjoy your day!
