WiP Wednesday: Spiraling Edition

What am I working on?

A sock.

That’s it. That’s the list.

It’s a Spiraling Coriolis from Cat Bordhi’s New Pathways for Sock Knitters. I really love this book. Yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy in Deep Seaflower, purchased from The Loopy Ewe. Bloomin Yarns now carries this yarn as well as DIC Classy. I went to TLE before it was carried locally.

The white stuff near the toe is a dental floss lifeline. I wasn't positive about my stitch count, so I put the floss in at the point where I'd have to rip back in order to adjust the stitch count. Starting a whirlpool toe is a bitch.

That’s about it in my life. I’m commencing the traditional mini-freak out in regards to my new job. I leave for Starkville, Miss., on Monday and will stay there through Wednesday. Then drive to Oxford, Miss., to see Bill next Wednesday and leave Thursday morning to come back to the ‘Burgh.

This means I will miss Hurricane Knitters. Humble apologies to the Hurricanes. I’m gonna be a little scarce over the next couple of months, but once we get to March 19, I should be around much more regularly. I’m sad about missing the time with my bestest Burg buddies, but since I completely failed at unemployment, this is a good thing in the big picture.

Comcast came and fixed whatever they screwed up on Monday, so we have TV again. In order to survive the evening of darkness yesterday, we watched this movie. It’s exactly what you would expect. ::sigh::

Hoping to have another FO ready for you tomorrow. I’m also hoping to get Santa and the lights down tomorrow morning. Wish me luck!

When I bought my DIC Smooshy at Bloomin Yarns, I stood there and debated that colorway vs. the one I bought (Wisterious) for a while. I love the Wisterious, but now I have a touch of yarn remorse for leaving the Deep Sea Flower there.

Beautiful sock -- I just love that color!

I'm still traumatized from the scene in Borat with the man wrestling (you know which one I mean, right?). Did I mention we went to see the movie with all of our parents? Probably not a good idea.

I will miss you! Who will I have dinner with!? Have a safe trip. I am ready to start my 1st sock from the New Pathways book...but I want to finish my 2nd monkey before I get sucked into the world of Cat Bordhi.

We'll miss you at knitting, but congratulations on your new job!!!

Isn't Smooshy heavenly?
