Good Morning All,
First up: technology issues resolved! YAY Turned out we needed a new box (is it top box?) - the thing in our basement. The technician showed up right on time (1:30 yesterday afternoon), went down in the basement and immediately said that was the problem. Apparently Verizon has had a lot of them fail recently. I can't even tell you how old ours was - decades anyway. By 3 p.m. my forced vacation from work was over....and the TV was back on (of course - lol). We were happy to be able to watch an episode of Poirot last night and tonight will find us catching up on Masterpiece Theatre.
And now it is Wednesday and time to link up with Kat and her Merry Band of Unravelers to talk making and reading. Fortunately there was no further unraveling for me after I ripped out the green sock. Instead I started a new sock!
The yarn is Trekking (Karen I think we are knitting with the same yarn?). These socks will be for Fletch and I'm knitting the Petty Harbour pattern (free on Ravelry).
The cowl saw a few more rows added. I know it doesn't look like it, but really there were additional rows knit.
(I hadn't noticed till I snapped the picture how my bag coordinates with my knitting! LOL)
The other week I ordered a few stitch markers on line (Etsy). I had been given a gift card at Christmas that could only be used on line. Most of the $$$ had been used for something (I can't even remember what), but there was roughly $11 left on the card. Adding in tax and shipping, the stitch markers fit the amount and they arrived the other day.
I love them! I've not used one yet and I'm not sure how those long bulb looking things will work, I may need to replace them with a jump ring, but time will tell.
On the reading side of things, I stopped at the library on my way home from meeting up with Dee and Bonny Saturday and picked up Love & Saffron which I thoroughly enjoyed. A novel of friendship, love and food. With recipes!! It reminded me of 84 Charing Cross Road in that the book is a series of letters between two women. I plan to stop at the library for a couple of books today after my morning at the office.
Fletch and I started reading Master and Commander after dinner. Last night we switched to the audio version so that I can knit while we listen. So far it is an enjoyable story (only just started chapter 2).
Here's hoping your Wednesday is off to a great start!
