Happy April Fools Day. The weather is playing a mean trick. I'm back to wearing a turtleneck and sweater to work...winter coat and gloves. High winds and fallen temps. All this after a lovely weekend. Typical Spring I guess.
Saturday was a beautiful day - warm, a little breezy, but very pleasant. Colin & Mailing came over for a cookout and we all actually did a bit of archery. Neither of them had shot an arrow since grade school (Mailing) or high school (Colin) and they did very well. Fletch cooked delicious steaks and I made a corn and black bean salad to go with them. We also had a wonderful ciabatta olive oil loaf that I heated up in the oven. Bring on the carbs! LOL It did get a little chilly after dinner, but it was perfect for having a fire in the pit. I woke up smelling like wood smoke on Sunday.
I had gone stash diving prior to the kids coming over and I had Mailing go through my sock yarn and pick out a skein she would like for a Hitchhiker. Glad I had her pick as it was totally different from what I guessed she would want! Sunday I was able to make a start on it. I am a copy cat and am making eyelets in this one just like Dee and I love it. The eyelets are a bit hard to see, but they are there.
The yarn is from Ancient Arts Yarn, fingering weight, 80% super wash and 20% nylon. The colorway is "Midnight Clear."
When the weekend started, I was sure I would finish the first Shell Cottage sock, but that did not happen.
I have 5 more rows till the toe decreases and am hoping to wrap this one up at lunch today. I shouldn't be too busy as both my bosses are away with their wives in Southern FL for a get-away to celebrate our last fiscal year. I don't expect to hear from either of them until Thursday. Fingers crossed.
How was your weekend?
