I’ve been doing a little bit of work on my site. I have added a couple things to my links page. And I finally got a pattern up – the one I wrote for Great Gran that has fueled the Sock Frenzy. I feel that I can honestly say that it has been Tested for Accuracy.
I finished up the grey cabled socks for M and started some Magic Stripes (by Lion Brand) socks for me in purple. We visited Mom up in Atlanta last week and got to go to Hobby Lobby (a store I adore). We actually went to the one in Morrow, GA, which has a fabulous selection of yarn for a craft store – I bought two balls of Magic Stripes (one purple and one brown) and a couple sets of dpns in sizes I didn’t have.
I am STILL working on the purple sweater. I’m almost back to the armholes but I think I have missed the window to wear it before the weather gets cold. It is supposed to be somewhere in the 40s tonight. And while I know that the weather is subject to drastic change (it has been in the 80s on Christmas in recent memory), I might feel silly in short sleeves in November. Well, it will be a fun new thing for spring.
Sorry for the lack of pictures, the digital camera is charged but I don’t have time to use it. The house is “finished” enough so that we can move our stuff from the storage room to the living room to save a bit of cash. We’ll be pretty busy with that for the rest of the week since we need to be out by the 1st. It looks just wonderful (the house, I mean – if you ignore the piles of boxes) and getting all of my things back out has been delightful. I know it is bad to get so attached to objects, but I just love my furniture and have missed it terribly.
On another note, Angus the Dog has started his arthritis shots. They are fantastic – he jumped up in the truck by himself yesterday for the first time in ages and ages. Hooray! He has also started burying his cheweez in various places: under the rug, under the couch, right now there are two in his bed. He is also carrying them outside with him on walks. I don’t know why he is doing this. I wonder if it is a side effect from the shots. Or the onset of senility. Either way, he is a Darling Dog and he will stay a Darling Dog even if he Loses His Marbles.
