I don’t have any knitting today – I’m just about done with one of the Retro Rib socks, but I don’t think you want to see yet another picture of that…so I thought I’d tell you what I’ve been up to non-knitting wise.
Andrew came home yesterday for spring break – and today it was finally nice enough to golf, so we went today with Dan and Andrew. Just for a quick game, but it was so nice to spend time with them and be outside for a change.
I did pretty well considering that we haven’t golfed in months – and in fact, I even beat Larry. Total fluke, and I don’t necessarily count things the same way he does, but still..!
Andrew brought us home some beer from Franklins…
We ate there the last time we visited him, and I loved the Twisted Turtle beer so I asked him to pick me up some. (It is a whole new relationship when you ask your kids to buy you beer!). And tonight Larry made the perfect dinner to go with it.
Twisted Turtle and home-made calzones. Perfect way to end a very nice day!
I’ve decided that I’m only going to do my sock club every other month – I don’t seem to be knitting as much as I used to, or I’m knitting slower…but things are taking me longer (I think its sleeping on the train, blogging, Ravelry and Facebook…) and I want to work on other things and not just the socks. I have so many projects I want to work on – did you see the new Knitty? Or how about this shawl? I really need to either knit more, or knit faster!
It looks like I’m going to have a little extra knitting time soon – I found out that I need to have surgery – I dont think its major, but I go this Friday for a MRI to find out the whole scope of it. At a minimum, I think I’ll be off work for a week or two, so I’m hoping to get some projects done. See? knitting is the silver lining in any situation!
Well, hopefully I’ll have some finished socks to show you next time – or maybe a new project if I just can’t resist…but have a great week!
