inching forward.

I’ll start with the knitting progress, as it is the most tangible. I spent a few hours knitting last night, and gained an inch or two on the foot of the first sock of this pair. The pooling is horrendous, the sock seems a little big to me, but you know what? I love this yarn, and I am going to love these socks. These were once too-big toe up socks from a KAL oriented around Socks From the Toe Up, and then they were a pair of the Gentleman’s Fancy Socks (from Knitting Vintage Socks, maybe? I’m too lazy to look), and then they became basic stockinette “vanilla” (as the Knitmore Girls say) socks because I needed something to knit on during a lecture about nineteenth-century spirit photographs.

This is from a morning last week, but it could be today, as Boh has decided that today is the kind of day for getting back into bed. It is slushy and rainy outside, and I don’t blame him.

I was really on a pizza-making kick last week. This one was so delicious that there weren’t any leftovers…

This weekend, Boh and I headed home for my family’s annual February turkey dinner, where everybody gets together for a low-stress Thanksgiving-like meal. The food was delicious, and it was great to lounge around my parents’ house with family. And Boh got a bath. (He’s thrilled.) I think I did more driving than reading this weekend, but the change of scenery helped me finish up a draft of a research proposal, so I’m calling it a productive weekend. Plus, my parents sent me home with enough leftovers to feed me through Tuesday!

Alright, time to start the week.

  1. Sounds like a great weekend! Aren’t leftovers the best? I’m always deeply suspicious of people who don’t like leftovers… my brother’s that way (to the extent that I’ve nicknamed him the “prince of Persia”).

  2. What a great idea, thanksgiving in february! My sister did that for her son-in-law last week too, as he just returned from a six month navy cruise. Loving Boh’s photo, as usual.

  3. Glad you had a great weekend! Hope the days are getting brighter for you! Boh has the right idea with hiding in bed from the grey and the rain….

  4. That sounds like a very happy weekend! Good luck with the week and the very orange sock … and enjoy the leftovers!
