What to do when alone and a little bit lonely…
At 4:20 a.m. this morning, M boarded the airport shuttle and flew to Keystone, Colorado for a conference. I’ll pick him up Friday around 5:00 p.m. This gives me quite a bit more free time than I am used to. Plus, Friday is a university holiday, Cesar Chavez Day, so I can stay home without taking any vacation time. I’ve been thinking what I would like to do during that free time, and this is what I’ve come up with.
Finish my March pair of socks, Roger, by Anne Hanson of Knitspot.
I noticed that the Yarn Harlot has already finished an entire pair of Roger socks for her March socks. I’m just going to assume that I got more biochemistry experiments done than she has done so far this month. 😉
I would also like to get my Frost Diamonds shawl done, which currently photographs like a big lump. I still have 56 g left in my first skein! I’m half way through a third repeat of the main chart. It takes me nearly an hour to do two rows. I’ve got about 10 hours before the bind off.
Now that M is not in his office for a few days, I’d like to get my shawlette, fleck stitch version of the Frost Diamonds shawl blocked on its vast floorspace. I may have forgotten that I knit this for a few
Finally, I want to get this sweater I bought, which fits me nearly perfectly, measured so I can use Ann Budd’s The Knitter’s Handy Book of Sweater Patterns to design and knit a different version with a simple stitch pattern from Annie Maloney with this Venezia worsted I received as a Christmas present a couple years ago. The sweater has 3/4 sleeves and set-in sleeves and classic ribbing as edges. Very basic and wearable.
All this should keep me busy!
