My, my, my, I was busy yesterday.
Finished the other fingerless glove; if electric rates skyrocket as heating oil rates have, I'll be in tall cotton [an expression my husband is fond of saying]. Our house is all-electric, all-the-time, and the heat pump we had installed a couple years ago has saved us tons o' bucks. And we're pretty warm. But you never know; it's always good to have a little hand protection in case this economic slowdown turns into a full-blown recession. Which I fully expect to happen. I'm not an economist, nor do I play one on television. I'm just saying.
I wish, though, that there was a way to just wear the finger part of gloves. My fingertips get colder than my wrists, especially when I'm running! Finger puppets, maybe? Heh.
And the stockings for my son and his family are finally done.
Well, almost done. I have to figure out how to put each of their names on the cuffs. I looked at metal alphabet letters in the scrapbooking section at JoAnne's yesterday, but couldn't figure out how to attach them. I'm not sure hot glue would hold up. I might try "writing" their names with strung beads, which I can sew on fairly invisibly. Any other ideas? I tried Swiss darning a letter on the swatch I felted and it looked horrible. I'm a knitter, not an embroiderer.
Lessee … oh, yeah, I rowed for 45 freakin' minutes yesterday morning. I was a sweaty little puddle when I was done, and my arms were aching last night. My feet are feeling better; the blister on my left foot is almost entirely healed. I'm hoping the pin-prick pain I feel on the callus on my right foot goes away if I just stop running for a while.
A full slate of college football today, and my needles are empty. And today is Designated Rest Day. We can relax and enjoy the competition, since WVU won their game Thursday night. But I'd better find a knitting project or I'll be forced to resort to something like decluttering or dusting while the games are on.
