My weekend got off to a great start (especially with all the kind comments y’all left about my Friday afternoon FO post – thank you!). It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed a beer with Holly’s evening walk.
Saturday morning was chilly and wet outside, but full of warmth and laughter inside. I was fortunate to have little Sam to myself for three whole hours! He danced a little jig on the floor while I heated up his bottle.
and then entertained me mightily by rolling over (and over and over).
I’m not sure what part of Saturday evening I enjoyed more – seeing Wisconsin beat Villanova, or (finally … it’s been a while!) seeing a new cork for my collection.
Yesterday, Holly and I enjoyed a long walk in the park. It wasn’t nearly as warm nor as green as I expected, but the sky was blue.
I spent the rest of the weekend finishing the knitting on my Wisconsin sweater (the KAL in Amy’s group on Ravelry ends at midnight tonight) and the latest Armand Gamache (oh my, I really loved this one).
Here’s a sneak peek of the sweater since I’m not sure if/when I’ll have a chance for Katie to take photos. Not gonna lie – this yarn is a washable wool/silk blend and after a long soak in the sink this morning it was about a size XXL. oops! I crossed my fingers and put it into the dryer. first on extra low, then on low and finally on medium low. By the time it was dry, it was back to a size S. I couldn’t be happier with it!
Today’s lip color is Aussie Rose. (super happy with it, too!)
Hope your week is off to a bright, spring-like start. We’re expecting warm sunshine tomorrow. Marc reports that the construction is in high gear at the golf course and our neighbors are hoping to shotcrete their new pool. I’m not even planning any other activities for Charlie tomorrow!
