It is another sunny day here and a bit warmer (30 versus 20). I did see a chance of snow for tomorrow, but I think that will be a bit more north of us.
Last night I managed to finish up the striped socks for Fletch. I love that I did NOT run out of yarn and I love the way they turned out. The 2nd sock has a tiny spot of grey at the end of the toe which the first one doesn't, but to my eye they match pretty well. I think he will like them.
As of this moment I have nothing on the needles! What??? I'm debating what to cast on. Do I try the cowl again (with no thought of rushing to get it done for Christmas)? A pair of socks for Colin (again, not for Christmas)? Fletch wants a bulky cowl, but we need to pick out some yarn. Colin also wants a knitted blanket and I'm thinking this has to be bulky to make it go fast - lol.
I've also been perusing the latest issue of Amirisu Issue 17 which arrived last week. Oh my - so many beautiful patterns. I love Kukka (Margaret - Days of a Sampler Lover) recently knit it up and it is gorgeous. If you are not familiar with Margaret, you should check out her blog or her Instagram account. She is amazingly talented (not only knitting but cross stitch and quilting as well). And, if you are not familiar with Amirisu - check it out. A gorgeous magazine along the lines of Laine and when you order it you also receive a code to download the patterns in your Ravelry library (like the MDK Field Guides).
Progress was also made in other areas. Last night I wrapped and boxed up gifts for 3 groups of people we mail to and those boxes are in my mail room at work ready for the UPS guy to pick them up. We still have 3-4 more groups of folks we ship to, and I hope to get those done tonight.
While I am at work today, I have a pound of unsalted butter coming to room temperature on my counter - hoping to bake some cookies tonight as well.
Finally, Fletch went out yesterday and got a tree. He will get it in and lights on it today/tonight and when Colin comes over tomorrow we will decorate it. I love sitting in the living room in the early morning with my coffee and just the tree lights on. Looking forward to that quiet time.
Today is our Christmas lunch for work. We are having it at Davio's in King of Prussia - a really nice Italian steakhouse. And...we get to go home after lunch. My kind of day - lol.
Joining in with Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday. Thankfully no unraveling has been needed. Hoping this Hump Day finds you enjoying life.
