Another grey, wet day here (what a surprise). Our forecast is for heavy rain tonight, tomorrow and tomorrow night - as much as 3+ inches. So, I guess it's good that it is rain and not snow...though a snow day where I could stay home and knit would not be a bad thing.
Speaking of knitting, I was able to finish the knitting on Odyssey up to the 2nd lace section!
You can see the ever so subtle change in color - gradually getting lighter. I think this is going to be so pretty. My hope is to take a lunch break today and move the life line up and start the 2nd lace section. The first few rows are just regular knitting and purling and adding stitch markers - nothing too complicated that I could mess up if someone were to interrupt me. That's the plan...hopefully it will transpire.
Dee and I have plans to meet on Saturday, so I need to get the next pair of socks ready to go...or even started! I think I know what yarn I want to use...just need to find it in the stash and then wind it up. These will be some new socks for Fletch...not in time for Valentine's Day for sure, but hopefully this month!
I've not been reading very much. Mostly just after dinner with Fletch (we should finish Big Chief Elizabeth tonight and next up will be The Body: A Guide for Occupants by Bill Bryson). And then I read for a few minutes before falling asleep at night. Still reading The Trees in my Forest which I'm enjoying.
Even though the weather is pretty crappy, I realized it was very pleasant driving to work today. It is definitely lighter outside (even though it's overcast) and there is something soothing about a damp morning - looking over fields and into the woods. A bit foggy in patches and a bit of stillness to the world. I often see a hawk perched in a tree surveying a field in Valley Forge Park - just waiting for a mouse or vole to appear. (But this morning he was not out.)
Linking up with Kat for this first Unraveled Wednesday in February. Head over there to see what others are making and reading.
