Another grey, damp morning here in Eastern PA. But warm! It was 64 on my patio at 5:45 this morning - supposed to go up to 75 today. The balance of the week, and into the weekend, looks rainy, so I'm glad Colin decided to come over tonight for dinner rather than tomorrow. I see another fire in the pit for us tonight!
Thank you all for your comments on my mitt debacle! As some of you mentioned - thank God it wasn't a mess on Sigla! That would've done me in for sure. Since I have no experience in picking up dropped stitches (which doesn't mean that I've never dropped any...I've just never picked them up), I watched a couple of on-line videos on how to go about that. Pretty cool and not all that difficult at all! So I spent some time at lunch yesterday fooling around with it. Luckily I had a tiny crochet hook in my bag of supplies and was able to do a pretty decent job of picking up the stitch. BUT...there were other problems - some twisted stitches and some extra stitches. I must have been somewhere else when I last knit on this.
Taking Bonny's advice, I put in a lifeline below where the dropped stitch had been and then pulled out all the needles. It unraveled pretty nicely and I think I was able to pick up the stitches. When I finally got them on the needles I had to put it away and do some work. Last night I didn't feel like dealing with it, so instead I picked up the stitches for Sleeve #2 on Sigla (they are kind of like Thing 1 and Thing 2 - lol) and managed to knit about 12 rows.
So, overall, progress has been made and that makes me happy.
On the reading front, I am STILL reading The Woman Who Smashed Codes. This is such a good book, but I just haven't been reading much (focusing on Sigla instead). Last night I did read for about half an hour before crawling under the covers and turning out the light, and I did bring it to work today in case I don't want to deal with the Mitt.
I successfully completed my on-line training - "Preventing Workplace Harassment" which was hysterical! The pictures of people engaged in harassment had me laughing out loud. I do know this is a serious problem in some places, but at the same time it really was funny.
And that brings us to mid-week (work-wise) and today is pretzel day! Philly pretzels with spicy mustard - yum!
What's up with you?
