Pk is home sick today. It's my fault. I was brought up to share and share I did. He got the cold germs from me. He tends to bounce back quicker than I do so he'll probably be fine tomorrow. He's waiting at home for the Verizon tech to show up (AGAIN). He is having a battle of tech-wills with the company. They say we are getting download speeds that our machines are definitely not showing. Since we're paying for this speed (and have been for some time now), Pk is incensed that they cannot fix the problem. This is the last straw. If there is no satisfaction today, we will be switching to a local cable company. I really don't want to do this but I'm staying out of it. I have a basic understanding of the tech issues but not much and I let Pk handle this as it's his area of expertise.
I am up to 8 inches on Pk's sweater. I can see subtle shifts in the material as I switch from ball to ball of the handspun alpaca but I think I may be the only one who will notice so I'll keep quiet about it. I am having some trouble with the swatch for the Evenstar shawl and keep coming up with the wrong number of stitches. I've tried three times. I may have to check and make sure I have the correct version of the pattern. I think I am going to go for the beads. If I don't like them, I can always not use them but since I am using a plain ivory yarn, the little bit of shimmer they'll add will be magical. If I don' find some I like at the craft store this weekend, I'll order some.
Well, my half hour is up and it's time to go roll on the floor. Have a good weekend. We're planning a Sunday morning brunch/bowling outing. My family and my brother's family. I won't bowl (hurts too much) but I can knit and cheer (and eat!)
Oh, and the snowflakes? It's 15 degrees (-9 C) here this morning and I'm still thawing out......
