Now I am going to try a pair of socks. I made my initial foray into sockdom about two years ago, and it did not go well. The directions that I was following left out a crucial little step that I did not have the experience to notice. This time, I am better armed with lots of knitting behind me, and more information to make those directions work as intended.
Following a lull after the holidays, my work days are starting to come up on my calendar again. That feels good, too, as I am beginning to feel pretty refreshed after the hectic pace that I kept in the fall months and the holidays. Working on an on-call basis is pretty nice because it keeps me from rusting, but not wearing out.
By the way, we received 5 inches of rain at our house early this week. Pretty nice after last summer's record-breaking drought.
