Well, not musings so much as a progress report.
Blue & white socks, ribbing done, well into the leg of sock 1. This was my work / laundromat knitting today and it was perfect.
Steampunk blanket: it is here on the desk, I can totally finish it tonight (12" to seam, a couple ends to secure and a ss border all the way around) if only I would get off the internet.
Today was laundry day and cat fluid day. Neither was too horrible. Tuna salad on homemade bread for dinner rounded out the afternoon.
