After a few hours in the office (and proving to a number of people that I really do have a husband), it was time to drop him off at Heathrow for his flight back to Germany.
Not even 96 hours on the ground. Phooey.
Since I was already 1/2 way to RAF Croughton, I went the rest of the way to pick up mail. This was good, as I had three packages in the mail. Ok, two mailing envelopes and a box, but that counts as three as far as I am concerned.
From the Loopy Ewe, I had ordered some roving and some sock yarn (SKP2008 coming up)
and some wonderful colour combinations from Crazy4Dyeing (including one she did just for me) to increase my choices of sock colours. Ordered in two batches, each took only a week to get here. Now, since I only go to the post office every couple of weeks, it was double the fun.
and just needs some blocking.
knit on 2,00 mm needles over 60 stitches I will get closeups of each sock tomorrow. Meanwhile, I have pulled some pink/blue tencil/merino yarn out for pair #49.
After dropping off five audio books as donations to the library, I checked out Flight Lessons – Patricia Gaffney and Salmon of Doubt – Douglas Adams. I decided to load them onto the MP3 Player for my trip back to Germany this weekend and started Into the Storm – Suzanne Brockman. I also picked up two TV Series on DvD – Dead Like Me and Ghost Whisperer. The first was all right – and very familiar if you have survived teen agers. The second I never made it through the pilot. Boring and worse acting than the other shows it mimics.
