I’ve taken all sorts of pictures the last couple of days, but sadly, both apparently I left both my camera cable and my card reader at work. Bah humbug. I spent the latter half of this week weaving in ends on the Oval of Friends blanket. I finally wrapped those up this afternoon so I’ll be ready to cast on strip number five tomorrow in time for the race.
Thursday dawned with a heck of a toothache; by Thursday night the entire side of my face was throbbing. Friday morning I was sobbing at my desk; by noon I had a root canal. Since my boss was heading out after a half-day, I just took my Novacain-numbed butt to Old Town to nurse my swollen face and get mocked for my slurred speech.
Apparently Knit Happens is good for my Diagonal Cross-Rib knitting because I finished up the heel flap and gusset yesterday afternoon and am about halfway through the foot now. I tend to fly through the legs and feet of socks but get hung up on the heel turn for DAYS! Well, that’s over now.
Michelle and Hol were unboxing a new Claudia’s shipment when I got to Knit Happens so I helped out for a bit and was seduced by a couple of the colorways: John B. & Navy Olive. I figure the multi will be good for Knitzi’s Nutkin socks, which I’ll likely cast on next. I can’t get the green to photograph well, but I have a couple of patterns in mind for it as well.
Root canal yarn doesn’t count, does it?
Awww, watching Herbie: Fully Loaded and they just showed Benny Parsons in the booth. We miss you, Benny. [There was a Jimmie cameo; that’s the only reason I tuned in for half an hour.]
Don’t forget to reset those clocks. Daylight Savings Time starts/started on 3/9.
