Basketweave ribbing is even more soothing than stockinette for me, so I'm enjoying knitting on Gail's socks. Do admit though, there is no challenge to it.
While redoing some of my blog post labels, it came to my attention I knit 32 pair of socks in 2009. I never would have guessed that many.
At the moment I have one pair on the needles, the next three pair ready to go, and I'm thinking about birthday socks for May and June.
I'm also thinking I want to knit something fun that's not socks. Like a shawl. I wish I liked to wear shawls, but I don't. So who wants one?
Pappy and I skipped doggy school last night. It was nasty cold with wind and I just wanted to stay home and not deal with trying to work with a golden age dog who doesn't want to work.
Pappy was content to snuggle up next to me while I knit on Gail's socks. I like to think he wanted to stay home too.
It's time to get out of denial and admit doggy school evenings are over. I think a few more attempts will convince me that's the right decision. The attempts will happen when the weather is better.
Yesterday AccuWeather Bob Larson's weather word for the five day forecast was "fluffy".
We're getting the tail end of the east coast blizzard. The sky is dark, the wind is blowing, the snow is harsh - not pretty, not fluffy.
As the end of winter approaches (we hope), I sense I'm sharing the wish for no more snow with more of the US than usual.
