Mid-week musings

Howdy, here I am again. I am getting back into the swing of things, getting things updated and stuff.

How is this happening?  Well…the kid is back to school and I am feeling 98% better than I was for the last couple weeks. Also I have my own personal rainbow!!!

As you see, it is shining right down the center of my calendar.  It really does take very little to please me.

I went out to lunch with Betsy today. It was nice to see a human person (not that the ones I live with aren’t human, but you know, sometimes you wonder what planet they are from). I haven’t seen anyone since before Christmas.

This was the gift I made for Brian to give his teacher. Every year, except for one, I gave them a knitted item (usually a scarf of some sort)

Cowl I made for Brian's teacher for Christmas.

Pattern: Birthday Cowl (available as a free pattern on Ravelry)

Yarn: Angora Extra (angora/wool/nylon)

The yarn was lovely to feel. You had to be a little careful knitting with it, because if you tugged on it a little it snapped and then you had another end to weave in. I liked the pattern very much. It’s easy peasy, free and attractive. I bought some Malabrigo Worsted to make one for myself. It’s good tv knitting.

MMMmm....Malabrigo!

I also gifted myself with some lovely Lorna’s Laces sock yarn in the PANOPTICON colorway.

OOOh Ahhhhh - Lorna's Laces -The Panopticon

I was so THRILLED to buy this (for myself) until I told Yvonne and she said “oh, i was giving you that for Christmas”…. 😦    So I ruined Christmas for myself.      my bad.

and last but not least:

He is wondering why it has gotten cold outside.

They are saying snow tonite.  We shall see.  It would be a nice change of pace from the rain, that’s for sure.

Have a good day, and thanks for noticing!
