No furnace wars here...
Thankfully we have a nice furnace and yes I have bumped the heat a little bit in the mornings and in the evenings, but I don't push it past 60 degrees right now or much higher in the winter. We use blankets and sweaters here. I have made many blankets in addition to the fleeces and heated throw I got last Christmas. SHE can keep the furnace wars... we have enough issues today. Husband and I went out for Breakfast this morning (one of the worst I have had in a while... shoulda had the french toast instead of the omelet, but I digress)... I went to wash the pots from last night's dinner to find no hot water! None! It all made sense... my shower yesterday was very cold toward the end there, but I thought I had used it up doing some cleaning yesterday... nope... the hot water heater rusted out the bottom and started dripping and put out the pilot light.... Yes it was 9:30 on a Sunday morning when we were hit with this reality! Lucky for us, we know some plumber friends. We made a quick call thinking that they might have time tomorrow to help replace the heater. Well thankfully they had time today! Husband and I went to Lowe's to purchase a new one and the men are working in our little underground railroad of a basement. So I should be able to take a warm shower later and tomorrow morning! (the more important of the two!)
I also wanted to show you the scarf askew I finished:
Pattern can be found at MagKnits
It worked up really quick but it is a 12 row pattern that I did memorize after a while. Also in the pic is a 4x4 rib hat that came from leaflet that a magazine sent a while back. It is a little loose, but hopefully he won't mind. The yarn is Knit Picks Decadence in coal. It is the softest yarn I have ever used!
Here is the beginnings of the latest 6Sox pattern:
I have the toe on the first to finish. These worked up really quick since it is on size 5 needles. I only did a chart and a half since I liked the length of them as is. Should have them finished soon enough. Then it is back to the secret stole.
The LYS was having a 20% off sale for their 4 yr anniversary, so I made a stop yesterday.
I picked up some Claudia's handpainted in Toast. I have been wanting this for a while, so I figured why not right?
