How am I back at work so soon? The weekend seemed to fly by. Saturday was filled with errands (including picking up tax documents...and paying of course). Traffic was miserable. It was a cold day, but very, very sunny and I think EVERYONE was out and about. Of course I had to drive all over creation - my errands couldn't be located in one area.
However, progress was made in the de-cluttering arena. While running around Saturday I dropped off 6 large bags at a donation center! Some clothing, some household stuff, some books. And, I finally recycled our old printer at Staples (it had been sitting on the floor at home for a year or more!).
I also went through my yarn. I have way more sock yarn than I remembered (surprise, surprise!!) and nothing that will work for the two sweaters that I am thinking of making. That is what I will be looking for at the upcoming fiber festival in April. I should stay away from buying any sock yarn (but I know I won't). I did pull together a large bag of yarn to donate and also set aside a large tote bag of yarn for my friend Carol who is now doing tapestry weaving.
Friday at lunch I managed to finish sock #1. Sock #2 was cast on Saturday night, but only minimal progress was made:
The first braid on #2 is finished and I'm at the point where the second braid will be placed. I brought it to work, so hopefully will get to that at lunch today.
Fletch uncovered our garlic bed and all but one is coming up! He planted onion sets this weekend as well as sugar snap peas. Now, of course, snow is forecast for tomorrow (1-2" during the day and an additional 1-3" tomorrow night). Happy Spring!!
On the reading front I finished Slow Knitting which Fletch had given me at Christmas. I really enjoyed it and there are some beautiful patterns included.
Last night we watched Crooked House on Amazon Prime which we both really liked - highly recommend. It was good to see Glenn Close again on the screen.
That's it for me. How was your weekend?
