I think I’m getting a little weird. Not horribly weird, but just a little odd. The other day on the train, I was looking down and noticed the guy next to me had nice socks on. I stared at them for a while, looking at the pattern, wondering if they were hand-made. I’m not weird enough to ask him, but I was weird enough to take a picture. So I Kinneared him – while I was pretending to do something on my iPhone. That’s a little odd, no? What makes it a little bit more weird is how happy I was that the picture came out (so happy that I showed a co-worker – who now thinks I’m very odd).
But isn’t that a nice pattern? Big chevron. Hmmm….I am going to see if I can’t replicate it. They really were nice. Maybe this will start a trend – and I’ll start snapping sock pictures all the time on the train and get ideas for new sock patterns.
What a busy week! I’m not sure why it was busy – it is a little slow at work, but it just seemed like a long, busy week. I went out for drinks last night with co-workers and got home late….so it is very nice that I’m working from home today. And slept in until 7. Heaven. We heard the birds singing for the first time this morning – spring is definitely on the way!
Hypoteneuse was just too big to bring on the train – it was making my briefcase just too clunky. So back into the basket it went – it will probably be there until after I finish the throw – which is coming along very nicely. Because I always have to have train knitting, I started a new pair of socks.
It was late at night, so I just grabbed something in the stash that had already been balled up. This is Louet Pearl Gems – very nice. I forget where/when I bought this, but it has been in the stash for a while. So I felt very virtuous using it! The pattern is Nine-To-Five socks (Ravelry link) from Nichole . It is a free pattern (if you don’t have Ravelry, you can download it directly from her blog). Very nice pattern – very easy, mindless, but I like the way it looks.
OK, time to go back to work. I hope you have a wonderful Friday – TGIF!
