Weather wise , we're in the deep freeze . Yesterday was really brutal with the winds just making it intolerable to be outside for very long. So what's a girl to do ? Stay in and knit , of course ! My socks for Mallory were finished yesterday while watching episodes of season one of CSI . I'm late to the dance as far as that show is concerned, but am having a blast catching up .
The pattern is my fall back , plain vanilla garter rib socks . The yarn is from Regia Kaffe Fasset design line . I just love this colourway . It will be a test of my fortitude to give these socks away , but a promise is a promise . The baby blanket is progressing , shouldn't be much longer till it's off the needles .
We were busy over the last week with a birthday celebration for friend and then the family came over on Sunday for a turkey dinner . I usually do this in January because it's hard to get them together during the holidays , besides Mike was just dying to get some turkey with all the trimmings . The great thing is leftovers,which means that I have a respite from cooking meals for day or two.
On Tuesday I had the opportunity to babysit Jessey . It will be a regular thing for the next little while as Chantal will be taking dance classes on Tuesday mornings . It gives her a break and I get to spend some time with Jessey . Happy , happy Omi ! I love those cheeks !
