Well, not entirely lazy. I took a couple of photos and am updating my blog. And I have a pot of lentil – Swiss chard soup simmering on the stove. But definitely a quiet Sunday here.
But first, knitting photos! Yippee!
This is a not so great photo of the manly 2×2 rib scarf I just finished knitting for a friend. In fact I handed it over on the way to see Casting Crowns and Leeland in concert — awesome concert, by the way. And it was due to snow the next morning, so the scarf was warmly welcomed. I used a yarn called Marble for this scarf. The recipient of this little giftie requested “Browns” — so it is brown, but has some hints of color, like blue and copper also. This yarn is pretty soft and knits up great — I didn’t even realize until I got it home and looked at the ball band carefully that it is an acrylic.
Here is the Whitby Sock from Knitting on the Road — as you can see, I am nearly finished with the gusset on the first sock. I like this pattern and once you memorize the pattern stitch, it is fun to knit. But — these will not be finished by Valentine’s Day — however, my mother loves handknit socks so much that she is willing to wait as long as it takes.
Yup, still working on the Branching Out Scarf. I am getting close, though. After I get those red socks knocked out, then I will finish this scarf.
And now, a silly photo. Me in the bathroom Saturday morning wearing my favorite sweater.
Got the epidural injection in my back a week ago, and I am good to go! Pain is infrequent and I am back to my normal routine.
