It's a cold, damp, drizzly/clinky day, as rain and something that is not snow goes clink upon the windows. A perfect day for knitting, and laundry, and staying home. That's just what we're doing!
Unlike last Tuesday, when Filia - who had a very painful UTI on the 1st, and which looked like it wasn't bothering to resolve itself particularly well - was diagnosed with a pesky passel of kidney stones. One highly pesky one, and more than a handful of well-behaved smaller ones. So Wednesday, surgery #1 of 2 was done to deal with them. Inpatient surgery, with more than its fair share of annoyances. We got home Thursday (for which we are quite thankful), and Filia is doing dandy, and back to work. Sometime in the next while, surgery #2 will happen.
Knitting is going along nicely. The hat is done, the yarn from Cornwall arrived (having been backordered. Oops! I was doing such a good job haunting the post office that I got a call when the yarn arrived.) The test knit is done, and I should be set with knitting for a few months, so long as the yarn supply behaves. First, a pair of intarsia-in-the-round socks (finicky!), then a cardigan, then a sweater, and then another sweater. Or so things look. I'm set for yarn as far as the cardi.
The bookcase stain is going to be Autumn Oak. And that's where things are at this point!
Happy Thanksgiving, all!
