Rainy Saturday

I don't know how things are where you live, but we are now [supposedly] finishing up the fourth day of a nor'easter here in Philadelphia.  Even though the temperatures have not been that low, the wind and dampness make it feel really cold.  Today I am grateful that I do not have to be at work in this, as I have the other days.  You haven't been damp and cold until you are out in it all day long!

Anyway, it's been hard to find inspiration on a lazy day like this one, but those of you who are paying attention (surely there's at least one ...) will notice that I have finally put a link to my pattern for the Zach Attack Hat on the sidebar. 



Now you can make one yourself if you so desire.  I was hoping to turn it into a pdf, all nicely formatted, but couldn't figure out how to do that and store it for free.  So you'll just have to print it out the way it is, but it is at least posted.  (Please let me know if the link doesn't work!)

I am also in the throes of deciding how much/what knitting I want to do for Christmas gifts.  I have nearly no money to buy anything, and will be reviewing the stash to see what quick projects I have yarn to make.  I made a list of my stash, box-by-box, and apparently Box #2 has the yarns not already designated for projects in it.  It will be fun to open it and see what I can find.

The Pickle Cardigan is coming along, though I do not have a current picture of the pieces already knitted.  Right now I'm working on the right front.  The sleeves and the left front are already done, so I'm making progress.  It's an enjoyable project, and even if I finish it during winter weather, it will be nice to have it next spring.

The Tim is enjoying the last few days of the year when he will be younger than I am, as his birthday is this coming Wednesday, and then we will be the same age.  I will be curious to see if he is suddenly "old" as he has said I am for the past 8 months.  Somehow, I doubt it, it seems that comments about age cease around this time ...

Anyway, off to check out the mysterious Box #2 - with the help of at least one cat, I'm sure.  Wish me luck!

Happy knitting! I hope the cats don't "help" too much.

We have beautiful sunshine for the first time in a week... I think. The fur-girls and I are getting ready to go for a walk, and the Knight was rudely awakened by me, seconds before his fire pager went off. (I am in the room with the scanner, so I heard the pre-tone dispatch, if that means anything to anyone outside of emergency services.) It's supposedly just a porch fire, so I hope someone gets there quickly!

(How's that for a freewrite comment?!)

My sister said that in their area of NC, they got 7.9 inches of rain! We haven't gotten anything, I will try to send some sunshine your way.

Since I am 3 months and two weeks older than Tom, he celebrates my birthday by calling me "Old Lady."

Was part of that n'oreaster what was left of the hurricane that hit the panhandle of florida? Hope you dry out soon and use some of your stash to insulate you as you sit on the couch and work on a project. Isnt that the reason we have so much??

Hope you found some inspiration in Box 2. You are welcome to travel to NJ with me for additional stash searching anytime.

Did GK provide the appropriate review and comments?

I can help you with making a nice PDF. Hope opening Box 2 was fun!
