This Sunday afternoon sky shot tells the tale of the weekend. Overcast and chilly. Good napping weather.
In March, 58 degrees (14 C) would have us Michiganders throwing off our jackets and hunting for our shorts. In September - like today - a high of 58 degrees just feels cold.
Even though the sky has looked like rain for the past two days, we've only had a few very light, quick sprinkles. The ground is dry.
According to the National Weather Service, it's going to warm up a bit tomorrow and rain. We won't be seeing the sun until Wednesday.
Pattern: Bob's Boring Birthday Socks - Totally basic k1,p1 rib with flap heel
Yarn: Opal 6-Ply #1253 stranded with Knitpicks Essential in Dusk
Needles: Addi Turbo 5
Gauge: 5 stitches/inch
My plan to knit worsted weight socks for Bob's birthday using 6-ply Opal and a strand of fingering weight sock yarn is working great. The socks are cushiony and soft but hopefully will wear as well as my Opals - which seems to be forever.
I spent most of this dreary afternoon knitting on them instead of taking a nap. Even though the knitting is totally boring, the thought of warm feet this winter is making me think I need a pair of these, too.
