Hello All and Happy Mid-Week!
Joining Kat and Friends this morning for Unraveled Wednesday. Fortunately there has been no unraveling (except time seems to unravel away from me...). That, of course, is because there has been little knitting. Last night I managed to add 10 rows onto my Sunflower Sock and I snapped a picture so you could see the garter ridge on the heel:
Click to enlarge, and you can see the little nubs where I picked up stitches along that edge. Pretty cool and, for me, it was easier to see those nubs to pick up rather than picking up the slipped stitches.
I'm about 3/4 of the way through The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness and am loving it. Have any of you read this book?
What else? I did make it to yoga Monday night which felt great. Last night was busy - I had to pick up Mailing at a car dealership where she was having a check-up and oil change. We got back to the house around 6:15 and Colin was grilling scallops, pineapple and asparagus. Everything turned out delicious. I poured wine while he finished grilling and then we ate...quickly...and Colin and Mailing left right after we finished because the car dealer closed at 8 and she needed her car to get to work today. This morning, while having coffee, I spent 40 minutes chopping and prepping veggies for a stir fry dinner tonight.
Work is work. The Lame Duck will be back in today - 3rd day in a row (which is more than he has been in the office in years!!!). The jostling and preening has begun for those who are interested in his position. They will go through the motion of having panel interviews, but I would bet bottom dollar they have already chosen his successor. In some ways it is interesting and humorous to watch; in other ways it is just plain tiresome.
That's it for me. Head on over to Kat's to see what others are up to this Wednesday.
