And just like that--
I like it a lot. I'm very much into colors right now, which is unlike me. I have a pile of UFOs in the corner of the yarn room that I pawed through this morning very quickly and they were all grey and black and dark purple.
I have a few other cowls I'd like to cast on for, and I'm trying to decide if I can mix two colors of dk with one color of sock yarn. The answer is probably not but I might just give it a try.
I also cast on for the Friend of the Forest Hood with some crazy variegated yarn. That is early days. It may just be a 'cast on for all the stuff' weekend here, though.
My busy day yesterday was busy---I counted up and I had class, one committee meeting, two different meetings with colleagues, and four student meetings. I had a third meeting scheduled for 4:30 but that colleague couldn't find a parking place and I had to get home. So that was a 9 1/2 hour day on campus yesterday and in the half-an-hour blocks that I had free here and there I got some things crossed off my to do list. I can be incredibly focused like that, while bouncing around, but then I feel kind of hung over the next day.
Last night, Tim made a delicious dinner and then we went to the symphony. It featured "Rhapsody in Blue" and the "Second Rhapsody" and two other pieces. It was good, and Rhapsody in Blue tends to be a crowd favorite.
Today, I hope to work on a paper and write some letters of recommendation. There's a faculty meeting at 3 but I think I'll just call in as opposed to going in and sitting there bored.
I'm looking forward to some serious knitting time this weekend!
