Here's my cuffed sock. I'm a little further down the foot at this point but I wanted to show you the color of my yarn. I love this. When it first came, I thought it was brown but in the light, there are so many other colors in there. The pattern says to do 15 rows of stitches before the heel after turning the cuff but it made it way too short. I think I doubled it. I kept trying it on to make sure it would fit and now it's about perfect. It's such a cute pattern.
We've obviously gotten power back which is a good thing for a lot of reasons but today it's a good thing because we are heading out to Baltimore for our nephew Keith's wedding. I wouldn't want to leave while the power was still out.
We have a reservation at a nice downtown hotel and are planning to go to the Baltimore Museum of Art before we check in this afternoon. The wedding is at 6 so if we go down this morning, we'll have a few hours to wander and be inspired and awed by the art. Pk wanted to go to the Baltimore Aquarium but we learned that it gets very crowded and the tickets are timed. Since we're working with a limited amount of time today, we'll stick with the museum.
And speaking of Art, we are going to a benefit show for Mikey Wild next weekend. His family and friends are having a musical tribute and sale of his art. One of Pk's friends and his wife is coming down to have dinner with us and will meet us at the gallery. She's getting her phD in psychology so I think she might find Michael's art interesting. I just want to see some of his other stuff and maybe pick up another piece. The proceeds will help defray funeral costs so it's a good cause.
The mural at work is finished and I thought I'd end here (I want to strip the bed and wash the sheets and towels today. I'll finish the laundry tomorrow when we get home. And I still need a shower) by showing you my favorite bits. Have a good weekend. (I promise to have Pk take a photo of me in my summer time dressy outfit)
