Good Morning All!
A chilly start to our day here in Eastern PA - 32 degrees this morning. On April 9th! What's up with that? And, yes, there is snow in our forecast for tomorrow - just snow showers. And, by Friday it is forecast to be in the mid 70's. Crazy roller coaster continues.
My weekend started early. I left work before 2 p.m. on Friday. It was great to be home with so much extra time. I managed to knock out some chores (bathrooms, dusting and vacuuming) before dinner which left the weekend open for mostly just fun things.
The plain sock progressed some (I knit on it while Fletch read after dinner):
I'm liking the colors in this one a lot and, because I have other projects to work on, the plain knitting is not bothering me (plus the color changes always help).
The Lonely Tree Shawl is another story. I did a couple of rows Saturday morning and then realized I had an extra stitch somewhere. I tinked back several rows, but lace work is (for me) difficult to tink (all the yarn overs and the SSK parts). Finally, I just ripped out the entire thing. Of course, I had not put in a lifeline. Fortunately there were only 24 rows or so. I managed to re-knit up to the point where I messed up:
If you click to enlarge, you may see the red yarn running through a few rows down. A lifeline - what a concept!!
The rest of the weekend for me was spent cooking, doing laundry, reading and napping. I finished "Billionaire Blend" a coffeehouse cozy mystery. Glad to be done with that one! I started reading Flat Broke and am enjoying it so far. It's a bit difficult for me to understand folks who let themselves get into such a financial mess, but on the other hand I know some people like this. It's a quick read (I did not like the part where there is a copperhead snake in the house!!). I think I'm between a third and half-way through this book. Next up is "The Great Alone" by Kristin Hannah which came through for me on Overdrive.
Fletch was busy all weekend readying our camper - we leave in a week and a half for vacation. Hopefully the weather will improve - the weather radar on my phone was showing all weekend - and this morning - snow where we are going!!
And, my work week is starting off busy - I've got a conference call at 10 and then we are having a luncheon off-site at 12:30. Looking forward to next Saturday and the Allentown Fiber Festival!! The weather is forecast to be in the mid-70's for Saturday.
Hope everyone's week is starting off great!
