I've apparently become one of Those Kind of People. TAOs grandparents are forever after us to send pictures. Except he and are not really the type that take pictures of us, we take pictures of what we saw, liked, whatever. Even less do we take photos of us together - that requires a third party. So my brilliant idea of making them a calendar for the holiday gift was challenging. And -sob- I admit that in order to get 12 months I had to put the Cairn terrier on June and the Australian terrier on September. We've become the kind of people who send pictures of their dogs. Next year they are getting the usual Harry and David.
Last week's ennui was cured by the following: I cast on the Thanksgiving Shawl from ElegantEwe. I bought this pattern at last years Stitches East. I ripped back some of the Felici sock and added cross cabling to the instep. And on Tuesday I cast on Cat's Little Sky Sock. I crammed this into my lab coat pocket, had Wednesday off, and just in the time spent waiting for elevators got to the toe starting point.
Despite being on call some progress was made on The Adored One's Fugl sweater. This is definitely "end of sofa" knitting. It is an easy chart to follow but since it's meant to be used in lieu of a jacket, it weighs twice what my ego does. Definitely not for the weak of wrist.
