Code Red air quality combined with my slight fever and respiratory issues made me decide to call in sick today. So I’ve been lounging around at home all day, forcing fluids, knitting, and of course Plurking.
And I feel much better. I’ll likely go into work tomorrow. I just got an alert that the air quality will be a bit better — Code Orange.
Thank you for all your kind wishes!
Here is my new sock in progress:
I love this yarn — it’s the Unwind yarn I mentioned yesterday (link to the etsy shop in yesterday’s blog post). It’s 100% superwash merino and it’s got a nice twist and “meaty” feel to it. And I love the colorway — Creme de Menthe.
My sock has an ivy leaf pattern going up the middle:
So I am calling this design “Ivy League Socks.”
Lucy had an exciting time yesterday. There was a large winged insect in-between the window and the screen and it kept her entertained for over an hour.
She kept trying to get it and couldn’t figure out why she couldn’t reach it.
But she kept her eye on it!
