Just in case you wondered, a diet that consists mainly of Dove chocolate and microwave popcorn is not good for my disposition.
It’s not that I didn’t have any real food in the house for the duration of the snowstorm — I did. I just was too lazy to do much of any cooking. It’s appalling how quickly I can settle into a lethargic lump. On the positive side, that lethargy kept me from imbibing — I was too lazy to mix a drink.
So after several days of wallowing indoors, I went back to work yesterday. Izzy didn’t even accompany me to the door to say good-bye in the morning. I was met at the door yesterday afternoon by a very hurt and offended little kitty. She obviously thought I had just stepped out for a minute and would be coming right back. I had some explaining to do! Here she is, looking fuzzy!
No sock knitting yesterday because I had to stand up on the train both coming and going. I hope the transit system gets back to normal soon.
And not a whole lotta Oregon knitting either, as I had some errands to run and stuff to do. But here’s a photo:
There’s still quite a bit to do here — a bit more of the body pattern, the border pattern, and the (gag) corrugated ribbing. I started the sleeve with a 16″ circular needle and a little while back switched to a 12″ circular. I’ve got more decreases to go, but I may be able to finish the cuff on the 12″ circ. and not switch to dpns. Just gotta wait and see!
People have asked about the magic loop technique — I’ve heard of it, but it doesn’t appeal to me, as I have no problem with working fair isle on dpns. But can anyone point the interested towards a tutorial or explanation? I had a comment asking yesterday.
Yesterday was above freezing all day and sunny. A great way to start the big meltdown. And we’re supposooed to get heavy rain over the weekend. We may all float away.
