The Good, The Bad, and the Knitted

Today was a mix of the good and the not so good. On the not so good side, I had the dawning realization that having my freezer not freeze and my fridge freeze was a bad thing. I think I will have to cook up all the meat in the freezer tomorrow, so it won’t go bad. Also, Jeff came home feeling icky from Kodak(early), and called off TRU. I think he got the dreaded flu that’s been going around town.

The good side, however, was really good! The girls and I met a dear friend and her daughter for a late lunch(or dupper as we are calling it) at Chili’s. I always have so much fun when I am around Kae, and her daughter is just as witty and silly as the rest of us. Kae brought me some books of knitting patterns, including two Dale of Norway booklets. I can’t wait to start doing colorwork!
We also made a short trip to SA, where we found some more drinking glasses, and I got two books: The Joy of Signing, and Make Your Own Groceries.

I finished up the second Fawkes sock today, and have to get that in the mail. I will post a picture tomorrow before I send it off, it was my first pair of “fancy” socks, and I am pleased with how they turned out.

  1. OOOOOOOOOO good idea!!!!! Why don’t you knit really colorful ugly sweaters from the 90’s!!!
    You can make them for me as long I don’t have to go to the mall.

    More good news: that chicken

  2. C.

    Boy, you sure have a way of making a cankle look like a REALLY FAT cankle.

  3. you should see if Mom has some sort of sock pattern that would diminish the appearance of cankles.

    something with racing stripes, maybe?
