sadly it did not snow. i was sure it would. the weather report said it was likely. but no.
sister and i went to town and breakfasted. we went to the bookstore looking for elizabeth zimmerman’s the knitter’s almanac but it wasn’t there. robert musil was on the shelf. now he’s on my shelf. the first story was really great and i look forward to digging into the rest between fits of knitting. we went to nordic mart and i bought a single skein of fingering alpaca in a really pretty, slightly marled duck egg blue. i want to try the color using this pattern. if i like it i’ll pick up more yarn later. if i don’t like it then this one skein will finish its days as heel and toe of several pair of incredibly soft socks. or maybe i’ll work some fingerless gloves.
wellidy. time for lunch.
