The little pleasures

Yesterday was rainy and cold.  Work was chaotic.  I had to walk home in the rain with one of the tiniest umbrellas known to man.  And it was the night to clean the guinea pig cage.  Things were looking grim…

Thankfully there were a few little pleasures waiting for me at the end of the day:

First, I came home to find the my copy of the Filati Men’s Special #7 had arrived from Germany.  I own copies of two previous issues of this annual special and jumped at the opportunity to pick up this most recent edition when I saw one of the patterns pop up over on Ravelry.  The patterns in this issue are interesting and fun and the photographs are gorgeous; hot models help a bit too, I feel.  I am confident that I can stumble my way through the German instructions…  maybe.

I ordered my copy from Wollywood.  If you’re thinking of ordering a copy for yourself, I would suggest this vendor; their service was fast and friendly.

Next, Andrew brought home some treats from his trip at the grocery store.  I enjoyed some of the eggnog and spice wafers he purchased.  They were delicious!!  There’s just something about them that screams holidays…

Finally, some knitting.  Or, more accurately, some knitting pattern writing.  I’m working on a pattern for the fingerless mitts shown in the photo above.  The pattern will probably be ready sometime next week.  Anyone interested in a little test knitting?  You only have to knit with one color at a time…

Promise.
