So, Monday was not as bad, as I thought it would be. It often is like that. I expected the worst. Right in the morning, the electrician told us, that he would be done with his work around 3PM, but he didn't know when the power would be turned on again, from our electrical supplier. Well, We came home around 3PM, having been running errands, and going for a nice walk with the pups, having lunch in the car, with the view of a lovely park. We let the pups run around the back yard, for about an hour, and shortly after 4PM the power was back on! Not bad, eh?
Also, the weather held until 4PM, at which point it started raining.
I went to the Library to get some books to read (fiction), but also some knitting, and crochet books, to browse. That was Monday.
Today, it rains, and rains, and rains. I feel cold. I didn't think to leave out enough warm clothing, when we put away our stuff into storage. I have only two pairs of knit socks, and one has developed a major hole at the toes. So I grabbed some lovely Wandering Cat Yarn in the colorway "Siamese Dreams", last night, and cast on a sock.
I like it very much, but it was hard to find a stitch pattern for it. I've tried to knit a cowl with it, but hated the look of it. I originally bought this yarn to knit a pooling scarf, but found out about myself, that I'm too impatient for that (right now). Maybe another time. So socks it is. I really need another pair, and fast. These socks are from "The little box of socks" by Charlene Schurch and Beth Parrott, and it's called "Faceted Rib Socks".
I'm going to open my little online shop coming Saturday. You will be able to see what's for sale before that though. I hope you'll enjoy it! I'll be selling some of my handspun yarn, and with time, I'll put some original design knits up there as well. We'll see how it goes.
I always wanted to show you these photos of the boys. I took them some time ago, when our old kitchen looked still like that. Denny was still little. I just liked the colors in these pictures.
