In The Meantime..
I called my sort of LYS from work the other day, and they were willing to send me some #1 dpns through the mail, so Kalidescope went back into the bag for a bit.
Now, I could have knitted furiously on my scarf, but no. I was in sock mode, and stumbled into this rather brief KAL over at I'm Knitting As Fast As I Can . She's got to be a really nice person, since her name is Susan! And fun to think that while I was struggling with a yarn over that came right before an ssk (I kept losing it), maybe someone else was having the same trouble. Or not. At any rate, I finally got it together and I am all caught up. With only one sock because I didn't have enough of the right sized needles to knit 2 of these bad girls at the same time.
Yarn: A nice sort of khaki green wool whose name has been long forgotten (maybe Brown Sheep). Stash yarn, probably 3 years old. It was part of another project and I was sold a lot more than needed so it's languished in the bottom of the wool basket for some time just waiting for it's chance to see daylight again.
Needles: #6 dpns. I wonder why the less expensive needles only come 4 to a package? Hey maybe that's why they are less expensive!
Pattern: Susan's Seriatim
I spent much of yesterday housekeeping. I truly enjoy nesting. And when that wasn't being done, I was having a really good nap. It was a very tiring week both physically and mentally and it was ever so lovely having a day in which communication involved listening to the radio and occasionally talking to the animals.
I'd planned on making a trip out for groceries...well, milk and tea LOL and managed to talk myself out of even that. What was rather weird though was that I had some other things on my list. Not really needed things, but a couple of things I wanted. Like another binder. And some Little Smokies. Imagine my surprise this morning, when I discovered an empty binder that is just the right size in my bookcase. And, when getting out ice, I discovered that I had some Little Smokies in the freezer. Gee, if I stay in all day today, will milk appear?
During nap time, the mail man arrived bearing two bills and my needles. I think they almost cancelled out the bills as I wasn't expecting them to get here until Monday. And here is how far I've gotten on the new version of Monkey. Hopefully I will at least get the ribbing done today. This evening will have to be scarf knitting because I can't imagine trying to watch the Grammys and count stitches at the same time.
Hope your weekend is treating you well. Whatcha up to???
