I started Pomatomus Friday night. We skipped tae kwon do because I wasn't feeling well and Josh was half asleep. I made some chicken tortilla soup, and we relaxed for the evening. The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy in Gothic Rose which I purchased at Simply Socks Yarn Company several months ago. The yarn is lovely. The color in reality is more purple than the brownish tone of the picture.

Saturday we visited Josh's parents for lunch and some shopping. I was looking for unglazed quarry tile to place in my oven and they were also in need of a few things. Afterwards we went to Famous Dave's for lunch. I love their corn muffins. Some of his parents' friends are moving to a different house in the area and needed some help moving as well as the use of their trailer. Josh and I were recruited and ended up doing most of the heavy lifting. I have several bruises and my arms are rather sore.

I didn't bake my bread this weekend due to our inability to find any unglazed quarry tiles in Davenport and several inches of snow discouraged any more searching on Sunday. Luckily Lowe's does have them, so Josh can pick some up for me. I was really hoping to find some larger than the 9"x9" they carry, but no luck. I am getting unglazed tiles rather than a pizza stone because spending $20-$30 on something I could easily see myself breaking is not too appealing. For less than $5 I can get enough to cover my oven and have a few backups.

I really could have used my new brown coat this morning as the temp was in the single digits and the bus 10 minutes late. I don't think it has even shipped yet.

I love the pomotomus. I tried to knit that pattern when I first started knitting. I think it's calling to me again...

... and I think I want that coat!

Pomatomous!!! I am ~60% through mine, and I love them!! Just don't finish before me or I will be depressed about my terrible sock-making abilities. (=
