It was snowing this morning when I awoke. There was slush and ice on the roads and the driving conditions were listed as amber for my community. As I stood there looking out the window, I started to wonder why I would want to drive anywhere.
Calling in to the office it was quiet, and not snowing. There was nothing that needed my signature, no meetings and no crises. And I have a computer with which I can VPN or webmail. I.E., there was every reason in the world to telecomute and none to drive. A side benefit is that I can do mindless knitting while reading email at home, something I normally don’t do at work.
In between emails and document reviews, I finished the second sleeve on the last of the back zip baby jackets. Then, I started looking around for something new, something quick. I looked at the Sweater Vest pattern #081 by Mac & Me which I had purchased a few months of ago. I then pulled out a number of skeins of Great Adirondack Yarn Company’s Berkshire in color Chili Peppers purchased on sale from Webs on sale a while back. Since this is a bulky weight yarn at 108yds/100 gm, I also pulled out the 6,0 mm needles. Altering the pattern for a gauge of 12/10cm rather than the 24/10 cm of the original pattern, I happily altered the pattern as I went
Knit from the neck edge down, I am well past the rejoin for the arm slits. In fact, I think I am over 1/2 way done. I should be able to complete it tomorrow, along with all the finishing on the socks and zippers.
Chameleon SOM has arrived
At the mail room today, which I got to because I was in town, was my March kit from Chameleon Colorworks. Looking at the pattern, it is pretty straight forward and I should be able to knock off the first one of them tomorrow as well. So spoilers tomorrow.
Otherwise, there were a dozen of us for services tonight, which is a pretty standard number. I think that we are just about organized for our community Seder till the night before when the chapel kitchen must be tackled.
Books and Audio
I am finishing “O” is for Outlaw by Sue Grafton on CD, picked up some of the first Evanovich’s on tape, and stayed up too late last night reading the latest Diane Stabenow.
