I'm happy to report that our roof is still on the house and, in fact, the house is still standing. I was wondering about that in the middle of the night when the wind was whipping around at a fierce level! It is still windy this morning. The good news is that the wind blew all the clouds away and the sky is a gorgeous blue. It's a little cooler than previous days, so perhaps a walk this afternoon (I've got a conference call at 10).
This was the scene last night:
The kitchen table in all its messy glory. Piles everywhere (including on the chairs). I was working on the Beekeeper sock and Tyg jumped up to keep me company, And then he took the DPN protector/cozy I had been using and tucked that right under his head like a little pillow! The lilacs are droopy. I cut them yesterday but they have not perked up in water. They might just be too heavy. The scent is divine though.
The silk threads I ordered for my next stitching project should arrive today! I'm looking forward to getting started on that. Once the threads arrive, I can pick out which fabric I want to use, get it ironed and then start in on the project!
My second Beekeeper sock is progressing nicely and I now have 200 stitches on the French Market Bag. From here out (for a little bit anyway), it will be straight knitting around and around and around. The thicker yarn and the #7 circular needle give my hands a workout and at times I need to put it down and just rest my fingers.
Bottom line: there is no lack of projects on which to work - LOL. Looking forward to a productive day and weekend. Enjoy!!
