It followed me to work and gawked at me from across the office. It spoke to me in whispers at first then became increasingly loud to the point of being obnoxious. I guess you can't put a good sock down and this one is a good one. So I worked on it off and on during the day and ended the day with the heel turned and the foot started.
I think I was getting tired of Easy-Peasy Shawl not getting any longer (except that it is now growing) and wanted to feel a sense of accomplishment. As the madness at work enters the last week, and knitting time between tax clients decreases as the time between clients becomes nonexistent, it is hard to finish a single row during a whole day.
Soon knitting will come back around to an important position in my free time. I feel it coming!! Life will return to peacefulness and I will return to...me-ness. Until then sock will keep me company at my desk, on my keyboard, on top of the ever present columnar pad.
As I was leaving this morning something buzzed by my head and I swatted at it. Huge dragon fly? Super wasp? Then I saw the miracle that is happening on my front porch--wrens in the wren house. DD bought the wren house for us at Christmas three years ago. Since that time it has not been inhabited by a single little bird. Now there is a family and they are so busy that they appear to be remodeling the place. DH thinks they may even have moved in a plasma TV. A peek inside revealed several small eggs and a very industrious Mom. Developments to follow as the babies hatch.
Life is good!
