So that's the second pair. This is the Tofutsi seashell yarn. I like it; it's pretty, and shiny, and easy to knit with. Even after unraveling the first one a half dozen times. It's a bit (okay, a lot) more expensive than the nylon-wool stuff I buy at Jo-Ann's, but it's nice to splurge every now and then, right?
This is the pair I finished earlier in the month:
So that was Socktober! I finished two pair of socks that I had started before. I'm just not knitting as much as I used to ... which is okay, because most of that time is going towards healthy cooking and jogging and yoga instead of sitting, so it's a fair tradeoff.
So now I will be concentrating on my Bohus coat that has languished for the last month.
As for the Hurricane ... Thank God it passed over Baltimore. We got hit, but not as bad as when Hurricane Irene came through last September. That was a tougher wallop, and we lost power. With Sandy, there was a lot of flooding along the coast, and flooding inland from the rivers, and western Maryland is currently being coated with snow, but it is all just miniscule compared to what happened to New Jersey and New York (though the news is focusing mostly on NY). The pictures are just dreadful. Flooding, fire, toxic waste in the streets...just horrifying. The National Guard was there ahead of the storm, so God willing they'll prevent looting and other opportunistic crime. People were actually bragging on Twitter, before the storm, about looting. Sometimes it's just disgusting, the kind of people that live in this world. And what they'll do to their fellow man.
Okay, rant off. It's almost November, and I really hope to have the Bohus finished by the end of the month. Encourage me to accomplish this!
Don't forget to stop by Tamis Amis for Work-in-Progress Wednesday!
For when you can't have a fireplace!
