This will be a rather quick post as I am back to work and it is busy, busy, busy.
I had hoped to walk yesterday, but the wind never stopped until dusk. It was mild - like 60 degrees, but my ears bother me whenever I'm out in the wind (even if they are covered). Funny how a year ago it was 1 degree! What a difference. So, anyway, I spent the day knitting and working on a jigsaw puzzle and I had a nice nap in the afternoon.
The 2nd Arctic Fox sock is progressing nicely:
I'm into the gusset decreases on the foot, so it shouldn't take too long now (probably just jinxed myself). Hoping to finish by the weekend. I've ordered yarn to knit a cowl for Fletch and that should arrive by the weekend or early next week. Stay tuned on that one...I will be making up the pattern as I go (fingers crossed it will work). He wants the cowl knitted flat and then buttons (and button holes) added. And he is so darn picky over things. I was going to do cables, but he doesn't want that. I *think* I've worked out a pattern that he likes...need to try it on a swatch to be sure.
Reading-wise I am still working my way through "The Feather Thief" and thoroughly enjoying it. I'm only about a third of the way through - I seem to be reading slowly these days.
I hope to go back through my journal soon where I am tracking books and knitting projects and have a summary post for 2018.
OK - back to the grind. I've got a ton of reports to do so I'd best get cracking!!
