Weekend 'o' knitting

February's over! It was 60 degrees yesterday! I finished those blasted I'm So Done Mother&Daughter Socks!

*ahem* See what a little sunshine and warm(er) weather do for me? *note to self and Tom: we have to buy a house in South Florida. Soon.*

Last night, just before bedtime, I finished the blasted M&D socks, and if I do say so myself (and I do), they're lovely. I immediately picked out some yarn for the Bremen Muster socks, some Claudia Santa Fe, a colorway that's been discontinued, the very first Claudia yarn I ever bought, a colorway that I snarfed right up when she was getting rid of it. This one is a little darker than most, but I still love it.

But I might get a wild hair and buy some Fingering 55 for these socks, merino/silk, which takes color in a different way, so the same colorway looks totally different and luminous. These socks just deserve something special.

Time to run downstairs to the attendance office and hand out detention notices to the kids who insist on being tardy every day.

Yeah, if I'd only gone outside before 3:30, I'd have gotten some good sun! As it was, I held out my arms and turned my face to the sun until Zippy was ready to zip back inside.

I was so excited to hear of the almost 70 degree weather, but when I took the kids outside at school this afternoon, it was so windy that they almost blew away, so we couldn't even stay out long. Somehow, parents don't like it when you tell them that their children blew away.

Sorry to be picky, but I would like a warm day with no high winds, please....Florida, you say??

I know some parents who'd be glad for you to take their kids out on a "blustery" day.

At least now we have a little hope; the future isn't quite as bleak as it was a week ago.

Yes, Florida. Even though they had a couple of under-60 days last week. We can usually get really good airfare deals. It would be nice to get it out of Chville and have free parking at the airport.
