All the comforts of home, sorta

I had a productive flight and chose not to watch the inflight movie, Walk the Line, so Dave and I could rent it and enjoy it at home together. Plus I needed an inflight snooze so I plugged in my mp3 player and allowed YoYo Ma to soothe me whilst I finished my first sock of the trip.


As mentioned previously, I am not too happy with this yarn, as the fake fair isle is a teeny bit too fake looking. And the stuff is like string, so like, NOT luxurious in the hand. However, I am committed to finishing, because I am not a one sock wearing gal.

I don't know what got into me, fear or sleepiness or the bouncing air pockets on board, but I decided to do a three needle bind off instead of the kitchener stitch (grafting). I can always take it out and redo it. But it was so not-stressful to accomplish and feels so normal on the toe, so I wonder, why bother? I'll see how I feel when I get to the other one. They will not match since I didn't bother to line up the yarn sequence, color wise. This will be a pair I will wear when feeling devil may care. Is that a rhyme, or what?
I had a great night last night giving my lecture to the Beach Cities CA Guild. They laffed!! It was 10pm Central Time by the time I went on and I was, shall we say, subdued. This made for a safer presentation for the audience's sake, preventing cardiac arrest for many.
We had a superb dinner, and I stayed on my diet. I am getting more serious about this, since I have plans to get a new bathing suit next week, so I must gird my loins. One night with no wine and I feel like a saint. Let's see how long I can last.

Blogging in bed, by the light of the laptop. Don't you like my ethereal blue glow. I chill, so I shawl. Actually it was quite warm yesterday but when the sun went down I was glad I was wearing the omnipresent Fancy Fur Faux Fox. Nice hair too, eh?

The fact that I can go online and chat with everyone keeps me feeling connected. This is bliss.
Today I will teach starting at 10:30am, which is so California to me. In Wisconsin we started at 8am. So you decide which is better. I will have breakfast in the hotel and then travel a ways to get to the shop where the workshop is held. No coat, no socks, no gloves. Sandals. O boy!

  1. I hate those air pockets.
    There is a certain comfort of connecting that the computer brings. Sometimes a panic hits if I haven't checked my regular haunts and read how everyone is doing. Enjoy your California lifestyle.. it's still winter here in the Midwest, although the sun is rising earlier and we are seeing a lot more sunshine.

  2. Melody, I can't get over how prolific a knitter you are, as well as producing all your artwork. I'm beginning to suspect you're really a robot, and work 24/7! I love reading your blog every day, don't ever stop.

  3. You were allowed knitting needles on a plane???????????????

    Keep up the diet, but go easy on going easy with the wine. I seem to remember someone pointing out that it was an essential part of fusing :-)

  5. A friend of mine just returned from Geneva, Switzerland and had taken her knitting with her. She said she was very surprised when she got there to discover she had left her big scissors in her carry on bag for her knitting. She thought they were in her check in, but there wasn't a single problem. Of course she is all of 5' nothing and was traveling alone... still.... things appear to have relaxed.
