Rather a grey and gloomy day out there this morning - a bit difficult to wake up.
Despite the Lame Duck's appearance in the office yesterday, I was able to escape mid-day. I drove to a shady location, parked and managed to knit 3 rows on my Winter Sea shawl. And, my stitch count is spot on!! Here's a picture from last night:
I managed to knit a bit more after this picture was taken. The pattern is a 16 row repeat. I'm in the midst of one of those repeats and then just have two more to do. I may decide to make it a bit bigger (if my yarn holds out, which it should).
This will be a very cozy shawl. The yarn is from Green Mountain Spinnery and is a wool/cotton blend. It's a bit rough on my hands, but I'm loving the way this is turning out. It will obviously need a good soak and blocking when all is said and done, but I'm very pleased with it.
Not sure if I can get out today to knit. Wednesday's are typically pretty busy for me and my other boss (not the Lame Duck!!) is coming in - he and Bobby, our CEO, are meeting with some local folks as we may be acquiring another company.
Panel interviews for the Lame Duck's position are being held tomorrow and Friday with a decision by next week. I think the decision has already been made and that the interviews are just "for show."
OK, time for me to get to work! Happy Hump Day!!
