It is chilly here in Edmonton. The temperature is 2C or 36F and is expected to remain near that all day. It rained during the night and this morning we watched a few flakes of snow fall. Not ready for that. 

Yesterday I did the laundry and knit on the socks. The second sock is being a pain but I struggled through it. It took me until 3 p.m. to get it done. I will be playing with picking up stitches for the gusset so I have a tight join there. These seem a bit too loose for my liking. 

I spent some time writing a few notes about the gusset in my notebook. Though the legs look tiny in a knit 2 purl 2 ribbing, they stay up amazing on the grandson. I also do the ribbing on the top of the foot to help them cling better to his feet. 

I also started looking for a pattern to knit argyle socks to practice for when I do the Masters' Knitting classes. I feel like I have done well in finding a pattern knit in a sports weight yarn for the first pair. Colors will be determined by what I can find -- hopefully claret, aran, and black. The pattern is here.

Last evening I knit on the mitts and have to measure the cuff length and count the rows. I am focusing on it for the next few days so they will be done before I leave. 

This is what I saw in the bathtub today. 

He loves to drink from the tap. They have a very friendly cat who spends a lot of time with me when we are alone. 

Today is an at home day for all of us. I am going to put on a load of laundry while Grandson gets his hair cut, clean up the kitchen a bit, and hem some jeans for Son. I will knit on the mitts and tonight is pizza and movie night here at home.
