Nashville is experiencing some kind of weather event today. I know I haven’t been here all that long — and, truly, I like it a lot so far and have all kinds of plans for eating barbeque, biscuits, and fried chicken, not to mention tracking down the roaming hipster taco truck and watching live music — but the weather seems awfully, um, moody.
So this is the best I can do today. Kinda dark.
The thunder woke me up at 6:37 a.m. which was pretty spectacular in itself because it was so loud and sustained. (And I’m not a light sleeper. Or used to thunder of this magnitude.) My first thought was: ohmygod, bomb. Then, ohmygod the frat boys next door have a bomb. Then finally, I should get up and start writing.
As destruction did not seem imminent, I went back to sleep. And woke up to find it darker. I hate these day-for-night mornings.
Despite the weather issues, I’m pretty pleased with these socks. The second one seems to fit a bit more loosely, but considering I started them in November, the size is amazingly consistent. The Hundertwasser yarn feels sturdy — it’s a bit rough during the knitting — and the colors are wonderous: my sock got compliments in the coffee shop yesterday.
I think I’m going to start another one right now …
