the goings on

Well, not a whole lot has been happening here. I've been doing copious amounts of math in preparation to finish a knitted project for my dear friend, Jill. The first math I did, I freaked out because I thought I needed more yarn. I ordered more, hoping the dyelots would match close enough. They did not. But then last night and again this morning I redid my math and found that I actually did have enough of the original yarn. Who knew? I do like the third skein so perhaps I'll actually tag that to make my very first pair of socks? Of course that could be years from now...

I have this dream that I will get laces scarves done in time to ship them down to our sisters with their xmas gifts (oh yeah, we're that late). Time got away from us this year. I wasn't really feeling the xmas spirit. I don't know why...

It's a cold morning. Frost covering the ground. What little "snow" we got the other day is still lingering in parts of the garden. I call it "snow" because it was ice pellets. Those suckers accumulate quickly, too! Supposedly we are to get them on and off this whole weekend, but I am doubtful. We didn't get any yesterday, wait...did we? My days, they run together.

Okay, knitting is clamoring for me to get to it. And nothing delights me more than sitting and knitting while sipping my coffee. So that's what I'm gonna do!

Sounds like a good plan, knitting and a latte.

It was great to hear your voice this AM.

Love ya,

I spoke too soon. It's now snowing here and everything is already covered. Not sure what that means for the morning commute just yet.
