Wow — Sunday night already! I could use another day. This weekend has really flown by.
Friday evening I went with two friends from work out to dinner and then we saw the new Frances McDormand film, Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day. Good little movie. I enjoyed it. Then I got home in time to watch the last 14 minutes of the KU game.
Saturday I got some things done around the house. Packed a couple of boxes to mail to the fashionista — some clothing and miscellaneous stuff that she didn’t take when she left. I went to the library and got a couple of dvds – We are Marshall with Matthew McConaughey and a foreign film called Sophie Scholl, which is based on a true story in WW II. I haven’t watched either yet. Basketball has been on all weekend. I did some grocery shopping — I just finished cooking some rice for the week. I want to make some Indian food — curried chickpeas — later this week and eat them over rice.
Even though it turned rather wintry and damp at the end of the week, I went ahead and got my spring and summer clothing out and sorted through it. Some I will not likely wear and put in a bag to donate. The rest I got laundered and either hung up or put in the ironing basket.
I got the second piece of the tank knitted and did a 3 needle bind off on the shoulders. It is ready for the side seaming and then the single crochet edging. I also got two repeats done on the Branching Out scarf while watching basketball. It doesn’t seem like I got much knitting accomplished, but compared to the last few weekends, I really did.
I really like the Minimalist sweater that is now available for purchase at Knitting Daily. I usually buy Interweave Knits but for some reason the Fall 2007 issue escaped me. I think I may order the pattern, but I am waiting until I have at least two items finished. That should motivate me!
