Isn’t it funny how short weeks always seem extra long? This work week was only four days, but wow – it was at least 3 months long. I suppose part of it was trying to catch up from vacation, but still – working late, working early, working on the train – I am really ready for the weekend. Whew! I have a meeting on Monday with my senior VP to present a business case so I can work from home two days a week! Two days of not having a 5 hour commute (round trip) would really help me in a lot of ways…work, health, life…and of course, knitting (although the knitting benefit probably won’t be in my business case). Wish me luck!
This morning I slept in a little, got up and finished the socks….
I really enjoyed this pattern – it was easy, mindless and somehow interesting – so I never got to that stage of “I’d rather do anything else than knit this sock”. And they went fast. This will definitely be a pattern that I make more than once. And the yarn – I love it. Socks that Rock has got to be in my top three favorite sock yarns – I love the feel, the colors. Although my pictures originally showed this as a light color – it isn’t. It really is a pretty dark colorway, and Larry is pretty happy with his socks (although to be honest – he likes pretty colorful socks generally – no typical black/blue/brown guy socks for him!).
All in all, I’m pretty happy with the socks, and now its time to get back to working on the the shawl.
As I said, I’m very happy is the weekend. Today is errands, hair cut, chores – and we were going to go to a movie, but now it looks like tonight is going to be horrible here (thanks, hurrican Hanna!), so I think we’ll stay in and just relax. Tomorrow I’m going to a fiber festival with friends from the knitting group (I’m so glad the hurrican is hitting today, not tomorrow). I’m looking forward to going – I think its not a huge festival, but I think it will be a lot of fun (and a warm up for Rhinebeck?). I’m not planning on buying much, but hopefully will see something local and unusual.
OK, I’m off – have a great weekend!
