I needed a few days of pure comfort knitting. I’m back to socks already — Rachel’s Monkey socks. I finished the first one and cast on the second today, and I’ve made good progress. I watched a few movies, did a little laundry, chatted on the phone…
It’s been a long time since I watched Five Easy Pieces, but it’s one of my favorites, even when AMC cuts to a commercial in the middle of Jack Nicholson’s diner rant. I remember seeing it in the theater way back in 1970. And how did I miss the 1946 version of Razor’s Edge until now? I thought I’d seen every Gene Tierney movie. Sometimes there’s nothing better than watching good movies and knitting on a sock, is there?
Work will be busy and complicated this week. Inventory. I have some computer configurations to do tomorrow, and scanners to charge, and books to straighten. Tuesday is the big day in my store, but altogether it will take three days. Wise General Manager C and I decided that it’s stressful but not dreadful, and that we are really just antsy and want to get it over with. So we shall.
And I will have knitting to relax me. Socks. Pretty Monkey socks, and the next Petals Collection package should be arriving, too.
