Hello and Good Morning!
It's a bit overcast and muggy here. I need to get into the office this morning, so I'm guessing I will not be walking today. I did manage to walk yesterday morning (around 9:30). I walked 3.6 miles on the Oaks path. Though still warm it was not nearly as bad as it was walking at 1 p.m. the day before.
Knitting is moving along nicely.
That is the Hellebore Hitchhiker with a few more teeth and the start of the Tomfoolery sock (which is reminding me of Tequila Sunrise).
Here's a close up of the sock which isn't great - I think this is one where it is going to need to be spread out on a leg for the pattern to be appreciated. I'm knitting Cathedral Socks by Jeanie Townsend (free on Ravelry), BUT...I am not doing any purl stitches (except in the cuff). I always mess up when doing purl stitches and yarn overs so I decided just to skip the purls and simply knit (plus I'm much faster at knitting than purling). There's a bit of lace and a few cables, both of which I wanted. Hopefully they will look good once on!
I've also managed to make a few more Granny Squares - no real dent in the needed 75 more (at least) for my blanket, but at least a start.
Yesterday when Fletch went out to water things in the garden he found this under our apple tree:
The sweet beginnings of a little nest. Not sure why it was abandoned or who it belonged to, but it is fun to see how intricately the grass is woven.
As I mentioned, I've got to go into the office this morning. Suddenly there is a bunch of stuff that needs to be done TODAY, so I will be busy. Additionally, I had an e-mail from one of the managers at the Embassy Suites across the street from my office. They are offering (free) 2 rib eye steaks, seasoning packets, an onion and a few other things. Their chef will be doing a zoom class Thursday late afternoon. I'm not doing the zoom class, but I am scheduled to pick up steaks this morning! The hotel has been going through extensive renovations (badly needed) during the pandemic and now they are trying to drum up business again.
So that's my Wednesday. I need to get dressed and out of here. Should be a pretty drive through Valley Forge Park to get to my office. Hope your week is going well!
Please head over to Kat's to see what others are making!
