Well, at least the hair’s a little better, LOL! Remember, we’re going for neat and tidy here, not hot and sexy (as if!). You’ll have to go to Kristina’s blog for that (just kidding, fellow lawyer, LOL!!!) Anyway, yesterday was a lot of fun. It’s always a challenge to sing with other choirs and have other directors conducting! It’s funny, the more I saw of the other choir directors – and they were very good, mind you – the more respect I have for Nancy (and I already have a GREAT deal if you’ve been reading this thing!). The rehearsal was fine. I am grateful to be ringing AND singing at this one – so I can be busy enough to contribute but not quiet enough to lose any effectiveness at all by crying through the whole thing!
Last night I finished the first of a pair of socks in the Mountain Colors yarn. I did not use Colin’s pattern, but figured I should start out with something a little more traditional to get the hang of ribbing-down socks. Tonight, without fail, after completing changes to the brief, I am casting on for the second sock – no second-sock-syndrome for me! Oh no!
This picture doesn’t come close to the vibrancy of the colors for this yarn. I love the way the different ribbings and then stockinette (stocking stitch for you Brits/Canadians) treats the yarns. And the sock fits. Perfectly! Lord I am so selfish! I think I have to do a pair for my DH. He’s starting to get jealous:)
Tomorrow we get a new cable/phone/internet system installed, so I must needs be home. The good news is, I will be available if any problems come up with the brief. The bad news is, I won’t be able to get any walking in until late in the day. Nancy is out of state, visiting family in Wisconsin, so I am on my own, but I will walk tomorrow somehow, provided the weather is as lovely and cool as it was today! I will, however, miss our conversations during which we solve the problems of the world and bare our respective souls one to the other. Ah well, can’t have everything…
