The weather was great over the weekend. Saturday morning I went to Herb Day and browsed and bought a few plants, and some yummy organic asparagus and tomatoes. I ran some errands for my mother — she has been ill with pneumonia and is still not feeling great. In the afternoon I went over to Heritage Hut for knitting group, which I have not been to in FOREVER — felt good to be back. I bought a basic tank pattern to use with the 5 skeins of Wildflower DK in lovely sage green that I purchased from the sale bin many months ago. I figure I will have about 25 yds of yarn left after knitting the tank, so I have just enough yarn.
I finished reading The Natural History of Uncas Metcalfe. Interesting read. I am now listening to Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Love, Pray on cd that I got from the library.
We are back to rain here — it started yesterday and will likely continue to the end of the week. The yard needs to be mowed, but will have to wait until it is drier. But it is looking a bit jungle-y at this point.
Ryan’s sweater is coming along nicely. I have 1.25 inches before I start dividing for the armholes. I am anxious to get this done and start on my tank.
I emailed my Sockapalooza recipient and when I hear back from her, I will start planning her socks.
And the pal who is making socks for me has contacted me.
I love participating in Sockapalooza!
I got an email announcement for this year’s Knitty calendar contest. I sent in a couple of photos last year, but was not chosen. I think I have come up with a great idea for this year. I want to photograph Keenan in his Devin sweater. I am thinking that a nice park setting and a pile of yarn would be great — but I am still thinking this through. I may try several different settings and see which turns out best.
