Sunday, January 1, 2012


I spent the first day of 2012 confined to a chair, foot up convalescing from surgery. I've knit several inches on the sock I cast on last night. The sock is Darjeeling by Cat Bordhi, published in The Knitter's Book of Socks. I'm knitting it in Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk 5603 colorway (blue). Oh and I've been unemployed for 4 months now.

My husband told me I should actually start writing my blog. So here I am.

In addition to the knitting, today I've:

  • Eaten one of the few meals my husband has cooked for me in our 24 year marriage.
  • Watched two episodes of Hell on Wheels.
  • Cooked crock pot chicken & vegetables with dumplings, with the help of my youngest daughter.
  • Listened to two Graham Norton podcasts.
  • Talked the dogs down from eating the front door, twice.
  • Updated the virus protection software on a laptop.

If today is any indication of the year to come, it's gonna be an exciting one!

Sorry to hear that you had surgery (and of your employment status). Here's wishing you all the best in 2012!
