Oh, I was in a foul mood this morning. Dear hubbo slept in and made me very late for work. His excuse? The baby monitor kept him up since 4:30am. Yes, it has a low level static hum, but it’s quieter than the sound of the cats purring (we have a couple of outboard motor purrers.) I should add that he’s always had problems sleeping. He will wake up in the middle of the night and stay awake for a couple of hours, then go back to sleep. This is nothing new.
I am using Colinette’s Jitterbug yarn, color Alizarine, and I’m smitten. The yarn is very smooth compared to the Fleece Artist that I just finished knitting with. It has a shine to it that I love. I’m having issues with it pooling (or is it flashing, I dunno); a lot of the blue colors have ended up on the bottom of the foot. However, I don’t care. The Jaywalker pattern makes any issues with the funny striping disappear, and these socks are turning out very happy for me. I see many more pairs in my future.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
