It’s hard to believe we are at month-end, and that Easter is around the corner – where is the time going? The second half of this week has felt very airy and unstructured. On Wednesday, I got sick of my own company, screwed up some courage, and went to my LYS for their ‘sit & knit’ afternoon. I know & like them but it’s a new thing for me to knit with anyone. I’m glad that I went. The ladies were surprised to see me but soon picked their jaws up from the floor. I was surprised to see the store so busy, and liked observing the people & getting feedback on my own sock improvisation. They were great, and I’ll go back again if I can.
As for the sock, the improvisation is to use left-over sock yarn on the heels and toes. It’s a thicker yarn than the main one, and I figured a way to compensate. Having done 1 heel, I’m minded to rip back, and do-over plain. I’m worried that it looks weird but also that the yarns will wear unevenly… While I give that a think, I’ll be returning to the oft-spoken-of Norwegian mitten.
Yesterday was pretty groovy as well. I went in for an early doctor’s appointment, and got through in no time. I wafted on downtown, and found my hairdresser (follicle engineer?) was idle. That made for appointment no. 2 of the day. Unsightly roots be-gone! That was followed by lunch, and before I could pull the sock from my enviro-sak (yeah, still waiting for the Lady B bag – double hint to Br9ther dearest!) a friend calls to say they are off work early, would I like to have coffee? That just flowed into dinner, yoga class, and interesting phone calls. With all this “life” happening, I missed American Idol, and am itching to knit something terrible. Oh, and it was a half-class, so my tight shoulders got discovered by our teacher. Numerous corrections later, I am feeling sluggish.
ETA – My friend complimented the new spring scarf. I did say I’d take a commission…
Today’s eaten up now too. The kitchen floor is crying out for the mop, so I better go take care of that. Hopefully, at some point, I’ll settle back down and get my knitting on.
p.s. I didn’t win yarn in the givaway this week. Congrats to those who did – it looks v. v. yummy:) Still happy to have entered.
