Finally. A decently cool day. Rainy and grey but still. Had a lovely pot of tea...pineapple cherry green tea, so good. It's nice to be able to have a nice cuppa without sweating all over.
This is a sock that I'm knitting for The theme this month is Red and the picture doesn't look like it but they are burgundy. Patons Classic wool in worsted weight. This is a sock pattern that I designed; it's my first time designing, and I like it alot. Knits up pretty fast too.
Went to Fresh Market this morning to pick up some ciabatta rolls and their delicious onion pocket rolls (yum) and we had just gotten in and poured a sample of their Pumpkin spice coffee ...mmmmm, when the electric went out. We all stood around for a few minutes to see what was going on and all the electric was out on the whole block and maybe even a little farther. The manager said that it would probably be on in about 10 or 15 minutes and if we all wanted to shop the cashiers would round up the amounts and we could pay that. I got some tea for about $3.00 less than it should have been marked because it wasn't marked anywhere and they just randomly picked a number to charge. It was kind of fun to wander around the store once your eyes adjusted to the emergency lights. Everyone was really nice and chatty and the employees were walking around offering cookies. Very civilized...teehee.
Going to work on my other sock so hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday!
