Like a good chunk of North America, the weather here this week was abominable. Normally I would look forward to work and the AC, but it was a bad week at work, and I dreaded going in. My merry band of coworker friends was reduced by one a week ago and it is sad and unsettling.
Saw a great t shirt the other day, on a fellow being interviewed on the news. “Sorry I’m late, I didn’t want to come.” That pretty much describes it.
I know things will settle down there a bit, but not yet.
Anyway. At home it was too hot to do anything BUT sit in front of and under a fan and knit, so that’s what I did.
I fixed the cuff on the last pair of socks, and wove in the ends, so they are officially finished.
I finished sock #1 of my current pair, and wove those ends in while I was at it.
Cast on the second sock, so that is going.
They don’t look like a pair, do they? The yarn is a from Knit Circus in Wisconsin, two small balls packaged as a chromatic pair. This one starts as navy and gets gradually lighter, similar to the shading on the first one.
Cast on and knit a few rows of the next Durrow square. Sure looks like a blob right now! But those cable will begin to show soon. Loving using the medium color, can’t wait to see this one in place
And then while in the throes of all that casting on, I cast on the frieze cowl that I have been it hing to do since I saw it come to life on the needles of Nothingbutknit quite some time ago.
Which I already am addicted to! It’s so fun to watch the design evolve.
And this morning it was so much drier that I finally put my cardigan in to soak! It should be able to dry over the next few days.
But knitting must take second fiddle, because today starts the Tour de Fleece (TDF). I have no great ambitions this year, unlike last year when I started my epic sweater spin. This year I just want to try to spin as much as I can each day. So knitting will happen at lunch and on Saturday afternoons and otherwise just here and there.
This is what my bobbin looked like this morning, let’s see what it looks like at the end of the month!
And tomorrow J and his crew of parents return for finishing up the walkway. So not much fiber will be touched then.
Hope your week was better than mine! What are you doing this weekend?
