I opted to do the smart, adult thing and stay home this weekend and let my body heal. I was originally planning to go back to work tomorrow but I called the doctor's office to make my follow up appointment and they said, "NO. Not yet". Ok, I can deal with some more time off, especially as I can move around a little easier. I see the doctor on Wednesday and will probably go back to work on the following Monday. I already let my supervisor know and he was understanding. The center will not fall apart without me there. My clients will have to take care of themselves for a little longer.
I finished the Sockotta socks yesterday. A pair of socks in one week. Never happened before. See what lots of time sitting still will get you? They were perfect because stockinette stitch is so soothing. I like the socks and even got the stripes to match. Of course you can't see that because I am standing on one foot with my sock in the air trying to catch some of the sparse light on this grey day. I like the way the short row heel came out. I'll keep that in mind for other self patterning yarns. Now I am working away on the entrelac socks for Elanor. And I need to find a pattern for the Noro sock yarn that Joan sent me. Any thoughts? The yarn is so colorful that I don't want it to obliterate any pattern. I guess it could be another plain sock.
And I mentioned to Peter Kevin that there is another yarn show in October, in Rhinebeck. His eyes lit up. It seems there is a museum of old aircraft up there and now he is planning out how we can take the train together and he can go to see the aircraft and I can go see the yarn. I have a feeling he might want to come to the yarn show but we'll see. Old aircraft are a pretty strong draw.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
