I woke up in the night with that harbinger of doom – a horribly scratchy throat. I thought I would just get up, get a drink and sit in the living room and knit until A got up. But then I looked at the clock – 11:30. So I spent the night trying to sleep without swallowing. This does change the Friday list a bit – no game night tonight. No rushing about – I’ll get done what I get done.
That being said, I have already refilled all the bird feeders, including hummingbird. The chipmunk was noshing immediately, so I did a really mean thing.
I let Tigger out. She caught him immediately. He survived, but she let him and his brother know they are not welcome. I left her out for about an hour, until she started stalking birds, then I brought her in. She is eager to go out again, but I won’t be letting her out regularly, we really do want the cats to be indoor cats. Doesn’t she look sweet and innocent here? No, she is a fierce hunting cat.
I already took the photos I wanted to get of works in progress and off the needles – here you go! Basic toe up socks with a lace panel on outside of ankle (well, maybe inside, if you switch feet. But I will try not to. 🙂 )
Next pair is with this Tosh Sock in ginger colorway. I am doing the business casual pattern again – this time, one at a time – I hope it goes more easily! But I really do like the pattern, and I think it will look well with this nice golden yarn. I have already cast them on, check THAT off the list!
I also made a big decision – what to do with all the left over sock yarn! I am going to crochet up granny squares on a fairly small hook, and at the end of the year, when the sock making slows down, I will make an afghan. So in between socks, I will be working on the little squares.
Now I am off to sort the laundry and make the grocery list… then a nap.
