It is dark and early here in Eastern PA. Yesterday ended up being very busy work-wise (even though I was still *technically* on vacation). But, I was glad to get through all the emails that came in while I was away. I really don't like this time of year at work - so many initiatives, so much going on, one fiscal year ending and another beginning. This year it is compounded with Bill's retirement and his replacements. But, anyway, here I am. I'll head to the office around 7 a.m. and I'm hoping I don't need to be in Mike's meeting ALL day!
Yesterday saw 4 loads of laundry done...still a load of jeans and one of towels to do. I'm fully unpacked and we finally sat on the patio around 4:30 with a glass of wine (me) and a cup of coffee (Fletch). And suddenly Mr. Buzzard showed up - LOL
What a massive bird! Very impressive.
So this October 6th brings us to the first Unraveled Wednesday of the month. Usually we all link up with Kat and other Merry Unravelers, but Kat is away this week. I think I did more stitching while on vacation than knitting, but something was accomplished. First a little (as in VERY little) bit of knitting on the first sock for Peggy.
This is the sock that was started and unraveled several times before I finally decided that just a plain old vanilla sock was best.
My second French Market Bag is coming along:
I'm several rows past having 200 stitches on the needles, so now it is just round and round and round we go. I think I will start in with a bit of the green yarn on the left, then switch to the multicolored yarn on the right...back to the green and the handles will be a combination of the green and gray. The intent is to make this one much, much deeper than the thistle one I made first, so this is not even close to completion.
Not much reading occurred while I was away. I did start (and got about halfway through) When We Were Young and Brave by Hazel Gaynor. I've only managed to read another chapter or so since being home.
Time for another cup of coffee before I get ready to head to the office. I hope this finds you all enjoying the week.
