It's a..sock cuff!

Well at least the start of a sock cuff. Life has interfered with knitting time but it's happening. Would help if I knit faster, but at least I knit. And I really love to knit with this Knitpick dye-it-yourself sock yarn. It just feels really good and I can't wait until I have a whole sock. I'm not sure if I can knit two whole socks with tallish cuffs with this skein, so I guess I will make ankle socks. Or, I guess I could knit the cuff longer and then once I get past the heel put all the live stitches on holders and start the next one. And if it's running short by the time they match I could do the rest of it in some coordinating yarn which hasn't been dyed yet. Oh yes, I bet it would match well! :-)

It's been really hot here for April. Last night when I went to bed it was 83 in here. Tonight I turned on the air conditioner. The dog was smothering...yeah that's it. There is a slight problem tho. Last fall I got a programmable thermostat and allegedly the a/c setting was 78 I think. Well apparently that's not true. I thought I was getting a bit chilly and realized it was going down to around 70. That will never do! Surely don't want to have to spend yarn money on the electric bill! If it's this hot in April, I dread to think what real summer will bring.
