How was your weekend? Mine was good. First, my new range was delivered (again) Friday morning - just in time for me to miss my first conference call of the day - lol. Perfect timing if I do say so. They hauled the old one away and left the new one. Our neighbor Rob came over late in the afternoon and hooked it all up for us (using the "old" outlet that the delivery folks said would not work - HA!).
I didn't use it on Friday - too hot. We just ordered out some sandwiches for dinner. But it worked fine on both Saturday and Sunday - both the oven and the cook top. I realize now how over-heated my old oven was. Everything always cooked much faster than I thought it should and now I think I finally have an oven that is an accurate temperature!
Saturday I met up with Dee for some quality knitting and chatting time. That afternoon I finished up the second Fuego sock!!
Pretty and happy socks that fit moi perfectly!!
We had some thunderstorms blow through on Saturday which cooled things down and Sunday was simply delightful. Almost chilly at times in the breeze!! Before we went grocery shopping I managed to cake up two skeins of yarn to make socks for Damon and Peggy (Fletch's brother and his wife).
Both skeins are Static from Knitpicks (75/25) - the blue colorway is "Neptune" and the pink/red colorway is "Glow." For Damon's I think I will just knit the pattern that Fletch loves - the leg is K6, P2 across. I haven't figured out a pattern for Peggy's yet, but one of them will hopefully be cast on today.
No domestic chores were done which is kind of the way I like weekends, but I'll be paying for that this week. My friend Leslie, her daughter Jaimie and granddaughter Emory will be here next Saturday for the afternoon, dinner and spending the night. I need to do some MAJOR cleaning so that they can stay without choking on dust, etc.
Time to roll - I've gotta leave the house by 7:15 to get to the dermatologist to have the stitches taken out at the tip of my nose. And hopefully, get a good biopsy report. After that I am heading to the office - I've got a number of things I need to do there and probably will be stuck there for several hours.
Hope everyone's week is off to a grand start!
