Today was my one day round trip to North Carolina to pick up my great niece, Mikenzie. She's only 2 months old and she was such a good baby on the plane - because she slept through the entire flight. Those are the kind of babies I like. The sleeping kind.
Before I got there, I was working on a pair of 'ski socks'*. They're for David at my job, who made it clear that a pair of conservative brown cashmere socks was not what he was looking for. So I decided to jazz them up a bit.
I didn't get much done, I spent way too much time walking 18 miles to get from the airport to my gate, and then walked another 84 miles to get my luggage while carrying a baby when I got back to NY. Now that I'm home and looking at the sock, I'm feeling insecure about my choice of colors.
I'm going to mull a bit over the socks, which I can reasonably get done by the middle of the week once I've made up my mind about what to do.
Meanwhile, I got a bunch of packages in the mail yesterday that threatens to interfere with my sock progress. Book #1:
And in the same box, book #2:
And in yet another box came:
WEBS. This is for Mom's Mondo Cable Cardi which I'm going to make for her birthday (Feb. 26). Which means I have a lot of multi-tasking to do.
Fortunately for me, tomorrow I can do whatever I want all day long because it's going to rain and I'm using my one day trip all the way to Raleigh, NC as an excuse to say 'no' to everybody for at least one day. I'm giving myself a freebie.
So, off I go. Got lots to do and virtually no time to get it done.
Happy knitting/spinning/'looming' to you all!
* I think cashmere isn't a good idea for ski socks, unless those so-called ski socks are going to be warming some feet by the fire at the ski lodge. Am I wrong?
