OFF THE NEEDLES
Yay!! Catnip Socks completed and ready for this week’s FO Friday. Here they are:
Sorry about the less than wonderful photo – it’s just too cold to stand outside in my pjs to get a good picture in natural light. I know that that’s probably WTMI, with my pajamas and all, but rest assured, we DO have a privacy fence so the neighbors are safe. This particular sock stands a good chance of becoming my go-to pattern for socks. Yeah, I like it that much.
ON THE NEEDLES
Still working on this cabled scarf. The patterns calls for it to be nine feet long, I currently am about 70 inches and thinking seriously about finishing it a little shorter than the pattern says. I mean, I’m 5’2″ and nine feet of scarf is a LOT of scarf, kind of overwhelming, I think. What’s your opinion?
BY THE BOOK
I’m still working my way through Robert Massie’s Nicholas and Alexandra, nearly finished, though. The imperial family has just been moved to Siberia after the revolution. The second is one I’m really excited about, The Journal of Best Practices written by David Finch, a man diagnosed at age 30 with Asperger syndrome and how he and his family cope with this diagnosis. Funny and at times poignant and a little sad. I’m really, really enjoying this book.
FUN WITH ELECTRICIANS
Like I posted earlier this week, we had a couple of electricians in to do some updating and replacing in our house. I was so excited about the new undercabinet lights they were installing. Well, when they got ready to do the installing, they were the wrong size, the lights, not the electricians, so they were a no go yesterday. They did get a lot done, new lights, new ceiling fans, adding outlets etc., but I was pumped about my lights. Crap. This is a lesson in patience with delayed gratification, two things that I don’t have much of.
