The kids have gone back to school and that means we get the house (the much neater house) all to ourselves. That means a little more posting and a lot more knitting. I might even get to cook some real meals once in a while!
HB is a very crotchety old lady - she has been with me since 1988. She's a little bitty old bag of bones right now. She stalks around the bedroom and yells at us and then walks on our heads purring all night. She's old as the hills and healthy as she can be. My husband cannot believe she is still alive. She may outlive us both.
The weekend at the cabin was lovely, and I did get some knitting done, but not a lot. The weather was fantastic and I had some lovely early morning walks (I get up around 6:30 and go for a three mile walk and commune with the wildlife - a doe and her two yearlings stood at the end of my driveway every morning this weekend. My send-off committee?) My SIL came up from Stillwater on Saturday and my little stroll pales in comparison to her 18 mile run. Sheesh. She's running the TC Marathon in a couple of weeks.
The Leafy Cardigan is inching along. Endless stockinette - I can do this in the dark, but sometimes I just don't want to.
I love this sock! This is my "Slightly Bruised Mary" (Bloody Mary Socks (PDF file) from over at I May Be Knitting a Ranch House). I love this yarn, it's got a very slight sheen to it, and the colors are so lovely. Cherry Blossom Fibers
Nice socks. I have to say that I can enjoy plain stockinette very much. The mistake rate is so much smaller :-)
Nice thing about old cats - they love to snuggle!
Heres to lots of knitting and quiet time with H-B. : )
Looks like plenty of progress to me. And I envy your peace and quiet. The beginning of school for us results in a messier, crazier household. Oi!
Love the sock and especially love the vision of the quiet house with the kitty (and somewhere, the dog).
Your cabin sounds heavenly and peaceful.
Thanks for the "recipe".
