--but I kind of love this Pairfect yarn and the socks that it makes.
Tim is off to a conference in Cali for a few days. It comes at a time when I don't have a lot of commitments at work so I can work at home a lot--curled up with the dogs. I finally have time to do some of the reading I need to do for a few research projects and for next term, and I need to knock out my part of a conference paper, finish up one more conference presentation, and write two small grant proposals. All these are manageable (plus grading, but that is manageable too).
I'll update you with more knitting since there will be a bit of extra knitting time this week.
