Look! Yummy, beautiful socks from Cookie for my birthday. They arrived in Friday's mail at the best time for me since I was feeling a bit blue. I immediately pulled the plain old regular wool store-bought socks off my feet and pulled on the yummy goodness in yarn from Cookie. Instant good feelings. And, whether there was chocolate in that package or not, I'll not admit to. Cookie told me she knit them in Cascade 220 and the pattern is (ravelry link) Saxony. Thank you, Cookie, you have excellent timing.
I'm flying to DC today in order to be there for Monday morning meetings. It is a nice (hopefully) direct flight and I should arrive there in time to see the NSO Pops Happy Holidays concert at the Kennedy Center. I'm meeting a co-worker and we're having dinner before the concert. This week will be a full one and I'm looking forward to enjoying vacation starting Friday through the beginning of the New Year.
Yes, it is a Happy Chris-Moose! :D
