Really no news...but I couldn't think of another title. I miss doing Friday Feline posts...and I know I need to change the picture in my header and I will...at some point...just not today.
Today is my 3 conference call morning from hell. I've a call at 8:30, another at 10 and another at 11. It's torture I'm telling you. And the 11:00 one drags on and on and on.
In the meantime (and before my 8:30 call) I wanted to show you that I actually have a finish! Yup - Damon's "Out of this World" (my name) socks are complete.
These were knit using #2 needles. The yarn is from KnitPicks - their Static line and the colorway is "Neptune" (thus the name I gave the socks). The pattern is a simple K6, P2 across after 15 rows of ribbing for the cuff. The foot is just plain knitting. Today (I guess this afternoon) I plan/hope to cast on for Peggy's socks (Peggy is Damon's wife).
Thursday's Mailing goes to her office and then out in the evening with work friends for Trivia at a local bar. Colin has gotten back in the habit of coming over on Thursdays for dinner and he usually hangs around for a bit. He'll have a cigar and sometimes we have a fire (not last night - way too muggy out). The chicken thighs were a success as was the buffalo cauliflower. I made some couscous to go with it all. Colin brought over some of his garden bounty.
A bunch of hot peppers and some tomatillos! The green bell peppers on othe left are from our garden -they are finally coming in! I plan to make a vegetarian stuffed pepper dish and maybe I'll whip up a sauce using the peppers and tomatillos from Colin. That may be a Sunday plan. Tonight we will just have leftovers (there are so many in the frig).
Tomorrow I plan to get together with Dee (note: she has a new blog address) for coffee, chatter and knitting in the morning. And tomorrow night we are going to dinner at Mailing's parents. Dumplings!! I will make a dessert to take - most likely the peach/blueberry cake that I made a couple of weeks back.
It's already in the upper 70's this morning and it feels like it will be another hot and muggy one. I think I'll brew up some tea now so that it can cool for iced tea later today. Wishing you all a happy weekend!
