But between not getting sick, and trying not to see the blob in the center of my field of vision, it's a Normal Tuesday. Heroes seems to be back on track (not Season 1 greatness, but a leap forward from The Black Tear Twins), tonight is Dirty Jobs, and I am very intrigued by V, which I will probably record.
And I'm working on the Ty Dy socks:
The color repeats are pretty random (that's a long streak of dark green/blue there at the heel), so these may be fraternal socks. Elizabeth asked about the pin- I use a safety pin to mark the beginning of the round- it's just a reminder.
Mary took my Spiral Self Patterning Dyeing class at SAFF. She chose the Watermelon colorway and wondered if she knit two at a time, from both ends of the ball, if the spirals would go the opposite direction. Here's proof that they don't, though the color order is reversed (something that I don't think you'd notice if it wasn't pointed out). Your socks look great, Mary! Thanks for sharing.
Linda designed a Stone Temple Pilots hat from the We Call Them Pirates pattern, that inspired the We Call Him Spidey Hat, which in turn inspired my We Call Him Spidey Mittens , which is how she came to the pattern in the first place, which you'll admit, is an interesting progression. Linda's hats (for her nephews) turned out beautifully!
I'm reading All Together Dead, and enjoying it as much as the previous 6 books. One nice thing about coming to a series late in the game, is that I can do a lot of catch up reading before I have to wait a year in between installments.
And I intend to knit, read, work on pattern sizing, and watch TV today. But since it's a normal Tuesday, I need to run first. It's time to say good morning to my friends at the cemetary.
