How are you on this Wednesday? I woke at 3 a.m. and never got back to sleep so...I'm a bit drowsy this morning. I was up early (obviously) and found my way to the office...some things I needed to do. It is now approaching 9 a.m. and I am finished what I needed to do at the office. After I write this post, I will head to Trader Joes, the liquor store (more snow forecast for tomorrow) and Staples.
Yesterday was a gorgeous day! Spring-like even. Blue skies, sunny and temps in the 40's. Today it is back to frigid weather and (as I mentioned above) snow is in the forecast for tomorrow. Supposedly 3-5", but who knows? It will be nice to not have to go anywhere.
I did get to the vet's yesterday and picked up the de-worming medication for Tyg. Thank God! She recommended two doses - one yesterday and one a month later to be sure those "bad boys" are gone. I agree.
Meanwhile, it is Wednesday which means Unraveled Wednesday. As usual I am linking up with Kat and friends to talk about what we are making and reading. First up is the Heart Warmer Cowl. Gosh I love this knit! The Bobble section is finished and I started the next section which is Broken Rib. After that comes a Smocking stitch which I am interested to try.
Still loving the yarn and the way it is knitting up. I should have gotten a better picture, but it was late last night when I took this (and the others). Better shots next time.
My Yule Wave Sock (#2) is now at the heel flap. I usually just knit on this after dinner while Fletch reads (which means every other night since we take turns reading).
Again, not a great picture (and it flipped sideways). Once I get the heel done and the gusset stitches picked up, it should fly down the foot. I really like this and I've enjoyed knitting it and doing the color work, but I'd like to start a new pair of socks.
Last, but certainly not least, is my Guernsey Wrap. I've now completed 40 rows (the first chart is 78 rows and you knit it twice and then knit rows 1-58 again). Loving the yarn (KnitPicks Wool of the Andes), loving the color (Mink Heather) and loving the knit. FUN!!
Again, the picture flipped sideways. Oh well! At least you can see the different sections in this picture.
On the reading side of things, I am still working my way through "Monogamy" by Sue Miller. I'm not thrilled with it, but having read about two thirds of it, I will finish. I certainly don't feel compelled to pick it up every day, but other books have come through from the library that I would like to read, so...I will continue to plug away.
And I guess that's a wrap for me. Wishing you all a wonderful mid-week!
