Today was one of those days where you wake up believing you’ll do one thing, and end up doing totally another. I had thought that I would get up, go to the library around noon, then head to Janelle’s to watch the movie I was getting from the library and knit… but for a number of reasons that didn’t end up happening.
When Cory and I tried to go to the library, there was absolutely no free parking whatsoever to be had for an area surrounding the library with a radius of about 4 city blocks. Unwilling to pay for parking, and having no cash, we decided to take a little trip down to Linden Hills Yarn where I picked up a little something:
2 skeins of Malabrigo lace, color Verda Adriana. Not sure what it’s for yet… possibly a gift. I got something else too but as it may end up as a gift in and of itself, rather than knit up, I’ll say no more about it until I decide.
We walked around in the gorgeous weather down by lake Calhoun for a while, then went back home. I watched two dog shows (one breed, one agility) and some episodes of Dirty Jobs, and knit on the wrap. I’ve got 4 repeats totally done now, and I’m starting the fifth. Also on the fifth skein of yarn, incidentally.
I made cauliflower cheese soup for dinner tonight. It was not as good without bread- we’re out, I know what I’m doing tomorrow- but still really tasty. My recipe is relatively low fat and only has about a cup of cheese or so in the whole pot, so it’s delicious and not so very guilt-inducing. Always nice when it comes to comfort food!
I’ve gotten feedback and comments from two of my three test knitters now, so I feel pretty good about how things are going with the sock pattern. Assuming things continue at the current rate, I should have it published by my birthday at the very latest (March 7). I’m not sure how I’m going to host it, as it is a pay pattern, and I’m not yet hooked up to beta-test the selling feature on Rav. If anyone has any ideas besides “email me with your paypal address and I’ll invoice you” I’d love to hear it.
