The Roasted Chilies socks for Antonella are on the needles. Yay! I had plenty of time to cast on and work the toes last night while I waited for Spencer to text me and let me know he'd made it back to school and was safely in his dorm.
Note to all parents with younger children: No, you never stop worrying about your kids - no matter how old they get.
I also had plenty of time to work half way up the foot of one as I waited for a train this morning. You know you'll have extra knitting time when the platform is crowded and people are arguing about who is cutting in front of whom. I headed straight for a bench and knit on a Chili Sock while I waited for the platform to clear.
There will be no photos to see here. I'll post all the details to Ravelry in a few days along with some progress photos so my knitter friends on Ravelry can check them out if they are curious.
Just because she knows that she is getting socks and has seen the yarn (I always get color approval from her before starting her projects), it doesn't mean that I'm going to show her what they actually look like while I'm making them.
She'll see them at Christmas.
And now to complete my lunch hour today by spending some time in the bathroom trying to get bacon and cheese grease off my newly washed fleece jacket and my t-shirt.
I got quite the deal when I paid $6.50 for that grilled cheese sandwich - with bacon! - and a cup of soup. I got the very yummy comfort food soup and sandwich, a nice big double grease stain, an upset stomach and bloating. Ooh and a hot flash, because here that comes now too. BONUS!!
Sigh. I need to start wearing a bib - and I need to stop eating stuff that I shouldn't be eating.
Some days though you just need the crispy grilled cheese sandwich comfort (with bacon!) that a salad just CAN NOT provide.
