It's mid-week and so far all is good! My office day (really just morning) yesterday was productive and the afternoon was pretty easy. Fletch and I ran out and among other things managed to get a new de-icer for the "bird bath" (really just a giant saucer to go under a plant) that we keep on our picnic table. The birds love it year round, but the de-icer we had last year gave out at the end of winter. Now we will be good to go and it's been needed as the temps drop into the 20's each night.
I'm plugging along on my Christmas knitting. The headband for Anna is finished (I LOVE it) and the first fingerless mitt to match has been started.
The mitts knit up quickly (I can't seem to find a link to the pattern) - just a simple 2x2 rib at the cuff, then plain knitting, a little itty bitty thumb and then a smaller amount of ribbing at the top. The DK weight makes everything go a little bit faster. The first mitt should easily (ha!!) be finished today and the second one started. I've also picked out the yarn I want to use for the YinYang Kitty Socks for Mailing (she requested another pair).
I'm waiting on a few books from the library but in the interim am reading A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler. This is not one of her better novels (my opinion) and I'm not reading it quickly - basically because I tend to get drowsy and nod off every time I pick it up! The characters are typically quirky, but the book is just not really pulling me in. I've read a little over 100 pages, so am a good (almost) third of the way through and will probably stick with it.
As always, linking up with Kat and the other Unravelers to talk about what we are making and reading. Head on over to Kat's for some inspiration!
