Posting in haste. In spite of another trip here from Telekom this week, once again we are without Internet all evening. This time we have telephone, which is leading me to suspect the router is malfuntioning this time. After 20 minutes worth of flipping switches and reset buttons, it is up for the moment.
The dog had been outside this morning. I had not noticed her trip to the water dish, leaving the floor spattered with water. Discovering this when heading to the microwave, I was amazed at how far a cup of coffee can splash.
Having this unexplicable urge to rearrange the living room furniture while the other half is on the road, I drafted the teens. To move my chair to where I was not directly near the TV and had good light meant that the couch and chair needed to be moved. To be able to tuck somethings away in the Shrank, we had to sort out everything dumped there for the last five years. Since I was on the kick, we restrung the audio wires, rearranged the extension cords and vacuumed. Trust me, you don’t want the details of the other five cupboards that got caught up in my organizational frenzy. But I now have two shelves in the shrank right next to my chair for patterns and some bags of wool.
Finished up the first Niagara sock finally. The four twisted stitch sock I was working on yesterday is also complete and have the mate past the ribbing with the second Niagara waiting in the wings. I am letting the vest sit. I went through my entire stash and I don’t have any yarn that I can use without cancelling another planned project. My alternative choices are dark grey, navy or (surprising for me) a forest green. I was not able to get to Rödel today, so looked on line. Haven’t ordered yet as I am not enthused about investing a lot in yarn that would be difficult to return.
The cleaning turned up another UFO; this funnel neck sweater. I remember starting this sweater while visiting Angela, a Bundeswehr officer who was the commander of my partnership unit. We were sitting together with our families in the kitchen of their farmhouse and talking about renovations. That places the neck knitting back 10 years ago. I have located it off and on over the years. Sometimes with the pattern, the most recent time without. Each time it turns up, a bit more gets done. Since it is only the last sleeve to go, I think I can manage it without.
f course, it is now spring and I will not need it until next winter.
The kids just realized that the Internet is up, so I am uploading this before the connection gets overwhelmed.
