Last night I was all hunkered down, ready to watch two episodes of Good Eats on television, a rainstorm pounding against the windows, Lucy snuggled up next to me. Knitting in hand, of course.
And the power went out.
Fortunately, it came on about 90 minutes later and fortunately this happens very rarely where I live (a circuit blew at the nearest substation apparently).
So I went into the bedroom with my high-powered flashlight — smaller room, so easier to light — and sat up in bed to read a book by flashlight. Lucy, who was very upset by this sudden darkness and change of plans, joined me after a few minutes, and curled up on my legs.
When the power came back on, I saw she had brought a favorite toy with her and placed it on the bed next to her.
Say it with me: Awwwwwwwwww!
Today has been cloudy and grey and drizzling rain. A good day to stay inside and knit.
Here’s the sock I started yesterday:
It’s Louet Gems fingering in “Aqua.” The pattern is my own, based on traditional gansey patterning. It shows up very nicely in this light-colored yarn.
The rest of the day was spent in preparing for the KOARC birthday extravaganza, which will take place tomorrow evening. I’m planning a birthday cake for him that ‘s — well, it’s gonna be a surprise.
“On days like today, a nap is the best idea!”
Tomorrow, Friday, is (blogless) L-B’s birthday. Happy Birthday, L-B!
