stress and worry

After finishing my Ravelympics project .. it's back to finishing projects that were on the needles. I was knitting these little angora booties and was at the half way finished point when I started my ravelympic project.. so I just wanted to finish them up and knew they would go fast.. these are knit with a small ball of angora hand spun.. that I spun just for them... I think I could have added a little more angora to the wool fleece.. but they still feel really soft and fluffy anyway.

Fay caused a lot of concern in the last few days... they kept emphasizing the fact that there was a great chance for tornadoes to develop in the red highlighted areas.. as you can see.. Kissimmee was also highlighted in red.. so in fear of flooding and other disasters I called out from work.. and sat at home with my hurricane supplies (you know the usual water, flashlights, candles, dry food snacks etc.) and watched the news.. I knitted most of the day.. and waited .. realized at 5pm that nothing really was going on and I could have gone to work.. and not missed a shift... I continued to watch the news... I finally fell asleep at like 2 am watching the news... kept waking up every time I heard the wind.. (nothing but wind) woke up real late the next day.. to nothing more than wind and rain.. a waisted day of stress and worry and a missed work day...

Here is what Fay looked like from my front door.. just some wind and rain..

I'm glad it was just wind and rain and nothing worse!

The booties are sweet. They look incredibly soft.
