I am working because I am not the type to come to a cold place for fun. Yes I CAN ski and board, but honestly I haven’t in ages because I hate being cold. Which is probably good that I knit.
I’ve not been home a lot these past few weeks, just long enough to wash a uniform and repack so I completely missed the fact that I’d be in Jackson Hole today and that it probably won’t be very warm. Yes I’ve got my coat and mittens but no snow appropriate shoes or the will to find a way the one mile into downtown to do touristy shit. I could in fact snowboard since I am right next to a ski resort, but unless I can do it in my pjs or my (now very tight) jeans and my work uniform peacoat, that shit ain’t happening. So today I’ve decided to knit while looking at the snow and crank the heat to 76 degrees. Netflix may also enter the picture. Yes, glamorous isn’t it?
My poor little sock is only a bit farther along than when last you saw it, which is not the fault of the Crazy Zauberball yarn – just a nasty December schedule. It reminds me of the Trekking sock yarn, and in fact I’m wearing my favorite Trekking socks right now (in the 76 degree heat). I hope the Zauberball wears like Trekking. Sure, it’s not a glamorous fancypants sock yarn, but these Trekking socks have worn like a champ and the pills just give them character.
So now with my afternoon planned I’ll set my alarm for 4am and knit in the warmth! I hope y’all had a great Christmas! I cooked and ate and ate and ate….
