What a great weekend!!! No rain over the weekend. Saturday got a little hot and humid, but Sunday was ideal weather.
Friday night we did head over to Colin & Mailing's. We were able to eat outside and even take a walk after dinner. It did start raining (again) before we were back to their house, but it wasn't a downpour luckily. Not only was it nice to see Colin & Mailing again, but we even got to spend a little time with Talbot and Marcel. Such pretty kitties.
And then Talbot being like a lion - lol
I love the "garter" on Talbot's front leg. A handsome boy for sure.
Now that Eastern PA is yellow, Dee and I were able to meet up on Saturday. We were able to sit outside at Abyss Coffee and knit and talk - FINALLY!!! It was so good to see her again and to feel (somewhat) back to normal. No hugging, but we did share some yarn with each other. I managed to knit enough that Saturday evening I finished the second sock for my brother.
I'm happy with the way they turned out. The yarn is beautiful and though it was a bitch to wind, it was very nice to knit with and the colors in it are fabulous. The yarn is by Cape May Fiber Co and the colorway is "Janthina" - I had never heard that word/term before, but it fits the color perfectly as it is a genus of a small sea snail. The pattern at the top of the sock is taken from Gladys (a free pattern on Ravelry).
The weekend also saw some stitching done on a new project (which I plan to show tomorrow) and a little bit of crocheting on some Granny Squares.
Last night Fletch and I watched Echo in the Canyon which we both enjoyed - so many memories with music from The Beach Boys, the Beatles, CSNY, the Mamas & Papas (thus the title of this post), etc. Echo is available on Netflix. We also want to see Laurel Canyon but that is only on EPIX which we do not get...but I think we can get a free trial.
Power was finally restored to my office late Saturday night. There are still a number of roads closed around here due to downed trees and wires. That storm last Wednesday was something else! Anyway, I'm heading in to the office this a.m. I have a few projects I'm working on and a bunch of stuff I need to print. I don't plan to stay all day though!
One more picture. Tyg on the fire pit yesterday (he gets annoyed when I show pictures of Talbot & Marcel and ignore him - LOL).
Hope everyone had a good weekend and here's to a great week ahead of us.
