The sun is out for a change. Yesterday was so foggy in the morning - like Sleepy Hollow or Sherlock Holmes foggy. And mild. Like 60 degrees. Then the temps dropped and gale force winds picked up. Today is sunny, but cold - like 31 degrees on my patio this morning. And...my weather forecast on my phone is showing 3-6" of sleet & snow on Saturday. Our roller coaster weather seems to be continuing. Please let this be the last of winter weather! Fletch and I leave on a camping trip on April 19th...I don't want to camp in the snow.....
I've already checked out yarn shops on Ravelry for our trip and there are plenty!! I need to make a list so I'm ready. And the Allentown Fiber Festival is in a week! I'll be meeting Dee and (hopefully) Bridget there. I've already printed out maps for the festival showing all the vendors' locations. Excited!!!
Sadly there has been no knitting - not even a single stitch - since Sunday! I've brought the shawl to work every day to work on, but I've been too busy to take a break at lunch. Evenings I seem to have run out of time. Colin is coming over for dinner tonight, so I doubt I will knit anything then. I want to start a mindless project that I can bring with me to work. I think the lace shawl and lace socks are just too intricate to try to do with folks milling around, phones ringing, etc. Seeing Nancy's latest socks out of Cascade Heritage made me remember I have several balls of that yarn. I'm thinking plain old vanilla socks for the win!
I did finish a book...or rather we finished it. It is another one that Fletch and I read together after dinner. No Life for a Lady by Agnes Morley Cleaveland is a memoir type book. She was born in New Mexico in 1876 and raised on a cattle ranch. This was an entertaining read and we both enjoyed it. Next up we are going to read Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. I can't believe I've never read any of his books. We have also been listening to Colin read us "As I Lay Dying" by William Faulkner. Colin does an excellent job of reading out loud and it's a pleasure to listen while he reads. Since he is reading to us, it is only on Thursday nights.
Today and tomorrow should be easy days for me (maybe some knitting at lunch???) as both my bosses are in CA for a "meeting" (really more a celebration of last fiscal year - spouses are included in this get-together and there are no meetings per se - just free time and dinners).
Hoping everyone is having a great week.
