Knitting progress

All week long I thought I was going to have to go in to the office this weekend to work on the-book-that-shall-remain-nameless. Then all of a sudden Friday morning those weekend plans were cancelled. Suddenly, I had a free weekend. So what did I do?

Friday night I was going to do all this knitting, but by the time I got home and had dinner, I had turned into a giant slug. So much for Friday.

On Saturday I had a much more productive day. Ran a bunch of errands, stopped at the yarn shop, and most exciting of all, I jumped on the Sensational Knitted Socks rebinding bandwagon..

After seeing a couple of bloggers do this I just had to do it myself. It's like having a whole new book! I'm so happy with it!!!

Saturday night was spent at Joanne's. Her hubby figured out why my computer was acting up. (It kept reving up to 100% CPU usage so some unknown reason. Thank you, Ricky!) I turned the heel on my 3rd red sock.

It's hard to see in this picture, but all three socks are slightly different. I guess I won't know which two are the keepers until I wash them.

I also swatched for some new Malabrigo hand warmers.

Alpine Pearl is the color. The pattern is from Webs. Even though I should really be concentrating on finishing some of my multiple projects, I really need some Malabrigo touching my hands. You understand, don't you?

And finally, what better way to end a weekend with a delicious roast chicken, especially one with rosemary, garlic, lemon, and honey.

And the gravy! Mmmmmmm...

I love the idea for the sock book. How'd you do it? Just put it into a binding machine? The Claudia's look great. You could always wear them under boots! and mmmm, even though it's morning that chicken looks yummy!

Yay for a surprise free weekend!! :o)

I've been considering doing that to my sock book too - and my 'scarf style' book...and my 'clean faster' book...and any other book that I'd like to leave lying looks so cool!

Oh and chicken...yum!
