It was in the mid 60’s this morning when we got up and I immediately opened both doors and the living room window. It’s wonderful. It’ll be in the mid 80’s later but we’ll enjoy this while we can. No A/C running. Just the sound of crows calling to one another and the neighbor’s dog yapping a couple of times. I can hear the traffic on the FM road half a mile away, and there is a car coming down our road now. That’s it. Heaven. The two bookcases set end-to-end make a pretty good entertainment center with room on the bottom right section for baskets to hold my knitting projects.
My socks were dry this morning so I put them on. They are a tad loose but they haven’t been thru the washer on delicate yet. I just soaked them in a dishpan and spun the water out on the spin cycle in the washer. I’m enjoying the simple lace pattern on the current socks. It’s based on my favorite K3, P2 ribbing.
The first pattern row: P1, *K3, P2*, end P1. Second pattern row: P1, *K1, YO, SSK*, end P1. Third pattern row: repeat first pattern row. Forth pattern row: P1*, K2tog, YO, K1,* end P1. Repeat these four rows on the top of the sock, plain knitting on the sole. After the heel is finished you repeat this pattern all the way around for the cuff. Easy peasy. This is something I found in one of Barbara Walker’s pattern books and adapted it for circular knitting instead of flat knitting. There are a couple of other ribbing patterns that work well on socks and I need to go back thru her book and write those patterns down in One Note so I don’t have to hunt for them again.
I sat down and made notes on the contents of one of the big plastic bins, the one with the best fingering yarns. And since I removed all the partial skeins there is room in that bin now for the fourteen skeins I have on the way from Jo Dee. I have half a dozen other skeins in that bin to note down and then I’ll transfer that info to my laptop and keep it in One Note. Or, I could simply take the laptop into the studio and work right from One Note. Yeah, I kinda like that idea.
Brad’s got one more transaction to make and we will be finished with Simmons Bank as soon as the deposits are going into the new bank. One of his retirement checks requires paperwork to be mailed. The other stuff was easily taken care of online. We are one step closer and it feels great.
I’ve had OAN on, muted, for a little while this morning but there isn’t anything of interest to me and I’m ready to turn it off and head to my studio to sort thru my fingering yarn stash and enjoy the fresh air blowing thru the window. Somehow, Jim Jordan saying the GOP is the working class party doesn’t quite ring true with me. I like Jordan, but I don’t agree with his statement on OAN.
So! I’m off to become productive until it’s time for lunch. Have a wonderful Monday, ya’ll. God bless.
