I just deleted my whiner post. I’ve been sitting here jamming to It Happens by Sugarland, that says it all, except for the minor detail of the Knight turning the alarm clock off last night!
Okay, so it’s not like that at all. I was only ten minutes late, and while my father inlaw has a reputation as a hard boss, he’s never called my house or said anything more caustic than “Good afternoon” when I turn up late, which is something I never did in my past life. (You know, back when I had it together?)
Anyhoo, now that Comcast fixed their problem “outside” and I’m back online, how’s your Friday going? I’m really looking forward to tonight’s meeting. The Knight’s sick, so he’ll drive, and I’m ordering some sparkling wine, maybe even a bottle. (See, because I whined do have local friends, the meeting is being held not at the firehouse, but at a restaurant…)
So, how ’bout that FO report? I still owe you one from last week, but just hang in there, because there will likely be another quicky FO in the morning, but I’m blocking the Voyager tonight, so its report will come…
Yarn: Swoon. I think this yarn was my first Etsy purchase, but I know it was my first stash enhancement from Jessi. I’m delighted that I have more Alabama Fiber Dreams yarn in my stash, because this stuff even meets Gretchen’s approval. It’s a worsted weight wool in a colorway called Grasshopper. I can’t find the tag, so contact Jessi for more information. I’m not sharing! In fact, I enjoyed this yarn so much that I immediately cast on for another project with the rest, but that’s for another day.
Needles: Knitpicks Options Harmony tips, size #8.
Verdict: I love ’em. They were a one afternoon project, but I started Monday night, finished one, and then it took me two more nights of almost no knitting either night to finish #2. MJ tried dropping hints, but not too hard, because she knows I love brown and green, so perhaps I’ll make her another pair this weekend, with a shorter thumb…
So, my weekend? That meeting and some wine, tonight. I’ll also finish up the matching neck and/or ear warmer tonight. Tomorrow, if we don’t have snow, I’ll go get new glasses. I do want to try contacts one more time, but my left lens is cracked, so I don’t have a choice. Then, I’ll block a little lace, work on my lace ribbon scarf (maybe finish it?), go to FIL’s birthday dinner (um, order him a gift certificate from ____ [just in case he reads]), and go grocery shopping. That’s all I have planned!
What do your weekend plans include?
