Yesterday was a sick day in my house. The Professor stayed home with the worst migraine he's had in years, and I had a mystery illness. Either it was some sort of 24 hour bug, or I made myself ill in sympathy with him. It was bad enough that I didn't knit a stitch all day. That's the sign of a serious illness in my book! Oddly, I feel fine today.
Progress continues on the Urban Aran. I'm finally past the point where I ripped out my first attempt. Knitting the next size up was a good decision; thanks to everyone who encouraged me to do it. Since I don't know any knitters in "real life," I truly appreciate all of your input.
Wearing my favorite socks while knitting.
I'm still really liking the pattern. Assuming I don't screw things up, this sweater is going to be a stunner. My main worry is that it will be too warm to wear it by the time I finish.
I thought I'd share a photo I took out of my computer room window the other night. The sunset was spectacular, and although I didn't have a very good vantage point, I had to snap a few photos. This one turned out pretty well, despite the fact that I neglected to turn off the flash.
