ON THE NEEDLES

So here’s my newborn project, a toe up s0ck.  I haven’t decided on an actual pattern yet.  That’s one of the the things I love about toe ups, they can be started and worked on for a while before a decision has to be made about the pattern.  The yarn is another out of my stash, Knit One Crochet Too, Ty-Dy Socks, 80% superwash wool, 20% nylon, color #1518.  The color didn’t photograph well, in real life it’s greens and beiges.

TOO CUTE

I haven’t posted a picture of Josiepug in a while, here are a couple.

BY THE BOOK

I finished The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold today.  It was …… interesting.  I think this is one that I’m going to have to reread to really appreciate.  I’m still working through The Romanovs, my treadmill book.  I have to say I got a little bored with the first bit, lots and lots of scientific stuff, explaining DNA, who said what to whom and why.  I’m a little more than halfway through and it has gotten more interesting.

GOINGS ON AT WORK

Mr. Iknead and I finally set a date for my official retirement, 12/21/12 and I gave notice at work.  It feels unreal still, but every time I start really thinking about it, I get so excited I have a difficult time settling back down to work.  I thought the time would probably drag since I have so much anticipation but the last few weeks have really flown by.  We’ve been as busy as ever at work, making the days pass pretty easily.

If you enjoy living, it is not difficult to keep the sense of wonder.  Ray Bradbury
