Wednesday, Whatever

  1. As a long time Cardinals fan, I’m really excited that my guys once again captured the pennant.   I’m also a little sad that Tony La Russa is hanging up his jersey for good.  I’ve always had a fondness for Tony and I appreciate his good work on and off the field.  We adopted Saucey from ARF, which he founded.  

He will remain a hero to us for a long time. 

  1. I’m guessing it will be safe to knit myself a pair of socks inspired by these now. (Skip's socks not his buns)

  1. I finished knitting my October personal sock club selection:  

Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Indian Corn
Size 2.25mm needles, ML 2AAT
I am so wearing these tomorrow :)
  1. I’m still knitting a cardigan (but I've switched patterns), the Rock Island Shawl, the Miss Marple Shawl and my October challenge socks.

  1. I could have been at the heel turn on sock #2 of said socks last night if I hadn’t needed to rip back 22 rounds because I forgot to pay attention to the chart… ooops!

  1. It is raining with the possibility of snow later today, yuck.

  1. I plan to cast on my November personal sock club and Mystery socks later today (still mad at that October sock)

  1. I’m unofficially playing along with NaNoWriMo which my daughter is officially participating in.  I had an idea, so what the heck.  I used to be a fairly decent writer until I started blogging

  1. I bagged up the 2012 personal sock club yarns & patterns… at least I’m ahead on something.
2012 PSC... I may be developing a project bag problem

  1. Whatever…. This makes the list 10 items long; so Monk will be happy.
 Happy Knitting!
