Fridays are your friend.

In the There's Always Room for More Christmas department, here's some Schaefer Anne sock yarn that I got a week or so ago from Christine at Unraveled for Christmas. She knows that I have a genuine weakness for this yarn. I used to buy it practically on a skein-a-week basis when it was in stock. I'm taking this one with me to work today so I can get in wound and will probably start some socks this weekend. Something a little lacy but with some nubby texture. I have Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush. I think that's a good place to start.

Other than that I have nothing new to report except that I'm done with my jury duty rotation. And I didn't have to actually show up. Just that one heart-stopping call each evening to find out if I would have the next day free to fritter away or if I'd be dealing with LA traffic and sitting in a room full of people I've never met. So anyway, I'm done for at least a year.

I worked on my Tofutsie socks yesterday and finished the gusset decreases. The stitch pattern doesn't lend itself to being centered over the instep and down the foot so it's all knit from here on out. Easy enough to do at work today.

What a nice Christmas present. I would be glad not having to do jury duty too.

What is it that you like about this yarn? I bought one skein, it's in my stash, waiting. I like the intense colors. Looking forward to actually knit with it.

Oh that is lovely yarn. Congratulatoins on being free from jury duty.

I have a skein of that yarn (different color) in my stash, too. Can't wait to see what you make with yours. Mine was bought to go with a Knitty pattern (Sweetpea, I think, too lazy to look it up).

Whoa! Time to buy a lottery ticket. I felt sure you were doomed to show up for jury duty on Friday (or the following Monday).

I know, it's terrible to think that way about doing one's civic duty. When they allow me to enter with my knitting needles, I'll reconsider.
