We heard a rumor that it’s supposed to get cold and stay cold – I wonder how true that is. We did see a nice snow squall the other day – and we have a “special weather statement” up for some freezing rain sometime Mondayish – very exciting stuff around springville. Seriously, we have crocus blooming and buds and all manner of springishness – totally inappropriate for the middle of WINTER in the North-Frickin-East!
Thanks for all the sympathies on my total knit-idiocy with Ariann. Thank goodness I really enjoy knitting this pattern. And I’m still enjoying it. Had a little problem getting used to the fact that I was not longer raglan decreasing – evidenced by the decreases I was doing at the side of the sweater where I wasn’t supposed to be decreasing. Dropping stitches down and knitting them back up to preserve the increases I was actually supposed to be doing. I don’t know what brought on this episode of stupidity for me, maybe it was just the normal, after holiday let-down of my poor little brain.
Friday was Pajama Day at work – my first one, ever and I had a lot of fun just walking around in PJ’s all day. Although I was told many times it didn’t look like I had PJ’s on (?) I did scuffle around in my slippers to make it authentic. Then I actually had to get dressed when I got home from work to go out to dinner (!) We had a very nice dinner with the boys and J – they are heading back to college sometime this weekend and it’s been nice to be able to spend some time together with them. They’ve changed a bit since September – I can’t really put my finger on it, it’s not as simple as maturity, because they were pretty mature to begin with. We had a lot of fun, though and it was nice to just relax a bit. I didn’t knit a stitch yesterday – that’s a bit unusual for me!
Knitting group today at Panera Bread – meeting up with the knitty peeps for a while – and I’m really looking forward to it.
