Cupid, draw back your bow and let your arrow flow straight to my lover's heart for me! For meee!
(I love that song! I mean does it not make you think of Innerspace?)
I'm beyond delighted that the snow/slush/ice has caused a day off. Reason #2394 why I love my day job. As I suspected I will be spending my day cozed up on the couch, knitting a bit and preparing the menu for my special dinner for tonight. We're talking steak and potatoes tonight - a good yummy favorite. Last night I had such a great time at my knit group. There were 4 new people that joined us and I couldn't be more delighted. Again, knitting has proven not just to be a really wonderful creative hobby but a great connector. I am looking forward to next Tuesday!
And although Project Spectrum is in the blue, grey and white months - today is devoted to the reds... and how I do love the reds.
This I'm hoping to create finally my own "Cranberry" Beret. I'm using Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns as a guide and have already gotten past the 1x1 ribbing. It looks kinda small to me now but we'll see when I have a bit more done.
Also in my battle with the Second Sock Syndrome, my monkey has returned...
See that pile of STR in the backgound? I am really hoping and a wishin' it's going to be enough for sock #2. I have been doing the scienfitic method of holding both the working sock and the ball of yarn in seperate hands and shaking them a bit to see if I think they feel the same. This is a time where it would be really truly advantageous of me to get one of those mesauring thingys. I'll just be hopeful!
I wish everyone a nice comfy and warm V-Day!
