It is grey and damp here - actually raining at the moment. And there seem to have been an abnormally large number of yellow prison-wagons (school buses) on the road this morning. But, I'm at work and all is well. I can smell bacon (the caterer is here and setting up breakfast for us in our main kitchen), I have a fresh cup of coffee, I've already sent out my financial reports this morning, and I'm just happy that it is Friday!
Tyg got me up a tad bit early today - too late to go back to bed before the alarm - so I ended up with some extra time to knit this morning. And, being able to knit two days at work during lunch has paid off. I'm on the final ribbing for the sockhead cowl! This picture is from last night - 3 more rows were added this morning and I'm hoping to knit again at lunch.
I will be able to bury my entire head in this thing! The shot does not show the true color - it is a definite red.
This was the only piece I worked on yesterday. I am ready to start the heel flap and turn on the Sunday Swing socks (maybe tonight?).
Last night Colin was over and we watched The Old Man and the Gun and really enjoyed it (available for rent on Amazon). Robert Redford, Sissy Spacek (whom I had not seen for years!!), Danny Glover and Tom Waits (I never would have guessed). Supposedly this is Robert Redford's last film.
I'm looking forward to the weekend. Tomorrow night we are heading over to Mailing's parents to make dumplings (YUM) and celebrate the New Year (Year of the Boar - or Pig if you prefer). Making dumplings is always fun and they are always delicious. I guess we can also celebrate the house that Col & Mailing are buying (they close on 2/25). Sunday, hopefully, will just be very relaxed and laid back with plenty of knitting and reading (and napping).
Whatever your plans, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
