There is a nice new layer of snow. Everything is pristine. Pretty.
Yesterday was not the best day on record. I did frog the sock. No point in pretending. So now I have to figure out what to do with that yarn. I am not in the mood to be designing a sock, so it may just sit until I am.
And yesterday was the 3 year anniversary of our move to Pittsburgh. Nothing more really needs to be said. But, just because she is ultra-fabulous and has timing like that, my friend Kellie (out in Spokane) called just to say "Hey, we haven't talked in a while!" and made my day a good bit better.
Despite the Mister being near the top of an undesireable list, I started the Cobblestone, again, finally. I guess because knitting for my men makes me happy (ier), too.
Have a great Wednesday.

Good-bye, red cable sock, it was fun knitting you.
An amusing aside-
I had INBA try it on this morning as I was admitting the truth of the situation, and he said, "Nope, doesn't fit, rip it out and make a new one!"
*ack* Just like it was simple and easy!
2 hour delay again this morning.
I don't like 2 hour delays.
Maybe rewinding that yarn will be a nice distraction.

Otherwise, not much to report. I have been tired. Grey days or bug, I am not sure. Still, a couple of naps never hurt anyone.
Oh, and I put my name on the bus list for Maryland Sheep and Wool at Knit One this afternoon.

If anyone sees INBA's pop up paw in the Giant Eagle... please save it for us. I finished it just the other day, he wore them only 2 mornings to school. *sigh* Oh, and they are red, of course.
He cried and cried and then demanded that I knit a replacement.
I sure hope they find it.

Last night I didn't know what to do with myself. The only thing really on the needles now is the sparkly monkey and a travelling sock that is on the front seat of the car.
So, I made this.
Foliage. (Loft by Zitron, color: herbs, one skein: 50g)
Really quick... except that I didn't go to bed reasonably because I was so. close. to. done.
Isn't it grand?
I was hoping that it would pool more than stripe.
Still, I want to make another.
I have one more ball of the Loft. Maybe a pair of mitts and it becomes an addition to the gift basket... hmmm.

Speaking of chores... the laundry is calling.

I only have a bit of the ribbing done on the second sock.
My 2nd grader has a baaaaad case of "Mom is stupid, I am king of the world."
This is not pleasing, especially since I have had a headache for the last 10 days (I think my version of the virus that is going around) and my tolerance is about, oh, nil. Parenting is hard. And time consuming. And frustrating.
Of course, it is quite nice when people tell me how charming and warm he is.
I think I need to go find someone to tell me that today.

The Monsoon STR from Last February is finally knit up. I did use the garter stitch short row heel from the Feb. pattern, but that was it. It is nice yarn to knit with and the color is *sigh* wonderful. I am anxious about how these will wash and wear. My other knit up STR is furry and greying... but still warm and soft.
