"A" is for

Appletini yarn, coming my way soon! Can't wait for my new sock yarn o' the month to arrive, with this: Yummy! Looks like spring! Guess I'd better finish up my first Jaywalkers.

I am really digging knitting socks at work. My lunch hour in the winter is spent stuck indoors at the hospital. While it is nice to get a free hot lunch, I prefer to go home. But wintry awful weather just means I get to either knit on the sofa in the doctor's lounge in front of the wide-screen plasma TV, or hole up in my quiet office and knit. It's nice in my office because I have two floor-to-ceiling windows, bright. I always keep the blinds pulled up.
Well--except after I had my eyes dilated. I had daily migraines for 2 months afterwards, and sat in my darkened office every day...I'm so glad that wore off. (I feel for you peeps that get migraines regularly--yikes!)

So, anyway, I am looking forward to knitting another pair of socks. The Jaywalkers I am making currently are of a stiff wool that can stand up on its own, which I find rather odd. I hope it will soften with washing. But the colors in it are glorious! Like a desert sunset, or autumn in the northwoods. I'm gonna go knit now, it's time to make room for spring :D

And I'm gonna do that knitting in my new armchair:
Yes, A is for Armchair, something we have been without for 15 years! What did I ever do without this cushy lovely leather seat?! Target is the bomb. I'd love an ottoman to match...soon. Knitting in this seat is wondrous! I now have a choice where I sit to knit =)

And, A is for Aran knitting. Oooooh, I love cables. I'd like to knit up some lovely cabled goodies soon, like a hat, and a blanket (I'm thinking the Great American Aran Afghanrav link). And as soon as I get on the stick and order more Cascade 220, I can continue work on my Aran Wrap Cardi...

I honestly thought I commented but apparently my dementia is getting the best of me. Your A is a much better A than mine. I love love love that yarn and so wish I had room for a chair like that. Happy New Year.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and commenting! You are awesome!!
I'm not selling anything anywhere yet, but I'm hoping to sometime in the future when I have time. Two little boys equals little time.
Love that cozy armchair of yours! Seems like the best place to knit for sure!!

The yarn is yummy looking. Every knitter needs a chair like that to knit in! Can't wait to see your Aran Wrap Cardi finished.
