Welcome to mid-week. It is a cold one here (9:20 a.m. and still just 28 degrees). But Colin texted me that it could get up to 60 by Friday (of course...rain and flood watches are in the forecast as well).
After knitting that terribly fiddly cat, I decided I needed some easy knitting and have started a pair of socks for Colin. Once again the pattern is Hermoine's Everyday Socks - a free pattern on Ravelry and one that gives very nice texture to socks.
In reality the socks are a bit darker, but I love all the various shades in the yarn. The yarn is an 80/20 blend from Mineville and the colorway is Arctic Circle. This shot was taken early last night...since then I've added another 12 rows or so and hopefully more will be added at lunch today.
My day started with an 8 a.m. doctor's appointment (regular 6 month check-up) and all is good. I had blood drawn last week (too many tubes!!) - and all my numbers are good! YAY!
This is my last full day of work this week. Tomorrow I'm leaving by 12:30 to meet the Lame Duck for drinks. He and his wife are up from FL for the holidays and he wanted to get together. He put a very nice book together for everyone in the division using Shutterfly - pictures from all the years we worked together. A reminder of good times (the last few years were rough - especially for him...but now he is retired and all is good). Friday we are closing at 1:00 and are closed next Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday...and I doubt I will work Thursday or Friday. So a nice bit of time off.
On the reading front I'm a little more than halfway through "Kingdom of the Blind" the latest Gamache book from Louise Penny. So good! I'm making myself read it slowly and not rush through it so it will last - lol.
Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday. What are you up to?
