Whaddya think of my backyard this morning? Pretty spectacular, eh? And today was the day I needed to drive clear across town, pick up documents from the lawyer, drive downtown, drop them off at the probate registry, go to a LYS, stop at Home Depot and pick up a new light fixture, and go to the grocery store. It was slow going but I made it and by the time I got home, the roads were bare and the snow on the sidewalk had melted so I didn't need to shovel.
At the LYS, I bought a pattern, some neat cotton yarn, and some more dpns (I really need to finish up some sock wips). I tried out the Hiya Hiya 9" circs. I knit for about a minute and the base of my left thumb started throbbing. I won't be buying those.
I went to knit nite this evening to drop off the Smooshy sample sock and my Mirasol Hacho and Koigu socks. I got to see the newest additions to the store - Namaste Zuma bag in Eggplant (plus matching needle cases) and Koigu KPPPM. I didn't buy anything but I was sorely, sorely tempted.
The STR socks that I was working on have been frogged. They were pooling horribly so the yarn is in timeout. I cast on a pair of socks that I promised my sister.
Excuse me while I skootch Ricky out of the way...
(excuse the furry thigh) Yay - no pooling! But they may be a little too bright for her.
