Another Weekend...


Yes, it's another weekend past. Sum total of knitting accomplished: 3 rows on Birch. That's it. Did read through my new books, though: Knitting out of Africa by Marianne Isager, and the Morehouse Merino book. Both good reads, for different reasons. A couple of patterns in each one that look interesting to make, or to adapt. I guess it's a Good Thing to say that I bought no yarn, although I was mighty tempted. This really turned out to be a Shopping Weekend. Middle daughter's department store (can I plug Mervyn's here??) had a Friends-and-Family weekend where we were given cards that entitled us to her employee discount. Woo hoo! Let's just say that I am now "set" for summer nightwear and new earrings. Oh, the food--that food--that's the buffet table Youngest Daughter set out for her husband's 30th birthday party. They also had a Casino Night and other attractions. Me? I was at work, the way I am every Saturday night. It's all part of my Be Out and Around People Plan (as an alternative to sitting home feeling sorry for myself) and I am enjoying it. Maybe some more knitting tomorrow night--Monday is Apprentice Night, and I am really looking forward to seeing what happens next. I am such a reality-TV fan, and the cheesier the better. Apprentice, Survivor, Extreme Makeover Home Edition--great knitting TV!

Looks like you had a great weekend! Sometimes the knitting jsut doesn't happen :) All those sweeties are making me hungry!

Sounds like you had a great weekend even without the knitting. That's one of the good things about it - it's always there when you have a moment to spare for it...and a row here, a row there, and before you know it Birch will be done!

You are my hero! Did I see you working on the MOTW? Will wonders ever cease?

I am going to finish the last row of the rayon DFS shawl and do something on GEESE TOO!

Even if it wasn't MOTW, you are still my hero.
