Friendship makes prosperity more shining and lessens adversity by dividing and sharing it. (Cicero)

Last week, no one told me that there was a dress code. I felt left out.

This week, there was a dress code. I was told we were all going to wear red and/or pink for Valentine's Day. I was the only one who remembered.

I'm starting to suspect I'm that dorky kid the cool kids play tricks on...

I finished the scarf for Special Olympics. It's horrible, the way I just whined through the last twenty inches. I don't think I had the right attitude for knitting this project. But I do like the way it turned out.

I also finished the baby socks I've been working on. I was able to weave in the last end during Knit Night, and I handed them to Brian (one of group) as a gift for the baby he and his wife are expecting in April.

I had planned on knitting a Baby Surprise Jacket (the Elizabeth Zimmermann pattern that I like so much) for Brian's baby as my next project. But I had in my head that the baby was due in August; the baby is really due in April. I have to rethink the sweater idea, since the baby will be 7 or 8 months old before he will need a sweater here in Florida.

So I cast on a pair of Yoga socks instead, using a pattern from Patons and the Patons Kroy yarn. These are being knit for my friend's mother. I'm actually getting paid to knit these. I offered to do it if she bought the yarn, but she insisted on paying me as well. I feel like I'm the luckiest knitter!
