still here ...
What's been keeping me busy? Work is busy. We moved offices. Have several very large meetings in the near future. One involves many high-level people. As in, multiple Nobel Prize winners. Oy.
Coaching. Lots of early season drama. Including one swimmer leaving tomorrow to fly to Colorado to have arthroscopic hip surgery. Lots of behind the scenes work needed to get the season off the ground. Head coach leaving the country for two weeks. Oy.
What else? Looking at houses. Lots of houses. Narrowing down the list. Looking some more. We think we like this one best. Should we make an offer? How much? Will it still be for sale by the time we decide if we should make an offer? Double oy.
Knitting. Yes, still knitting. Mostly on the drive to work (I'm the passenger). Lace socks not so good for busy times. Doing a bit of tinking too. Want to start some stockinette socks. But ... the List of 5 continues. I'm sticking to it!! Here's where it stands now...
- Baudelaire socks for MIL's christmas gift -- finished the foot and heel on each, plus over half of one leg
- Vest for Dulaan (all done but for the neck edging)
- Cabled Seaman's scarf for FIL's Christmas gift. It will match the mittens I made him last year, and a hat that I made the year before.
- a poncho for grandma
- Denyse Schmidt potholders
So, finish one of thes and I can have my comfort knitting socks :)
