Half a Day!

I had a half day off of work again today (meaning I have to work on Saturday). So far, I've spent a couple of hours watching part of the BBC/A&E Pride and Prejudice movie (it's one of my favorites!) and working on my sister's socks. I've turned the heel on the second sock.

I found this yarn at a discount store a few months ago, and I wanted to try some self-striping yarn, but I'm not such a fan. It's superwash wool, I think (I've managed to misplace the band), but it's really stiff and scratchy compared to the Koigu I've been working with. I started some toe-up Jaywalkers, because I think I'd be really bored with just a plain stockinette or ribbed sock, but I'm just not really feelin' the love. Might rip it back and do it plain anyway. Just to get it out of my stash.

What I really want to work with is THIS: Artyarns Ultramerino #106. YUM! I love the greens and purples together. It's soft, too. I guess I'm more of a yarn snob than I EVER EVER realized!

I really should go and do my laundry, since I have a day off...but who wants to do chores?
