I’m sure y’all are beside yourselves to know if I’m going to be taking the Simple Tee Too to New York 😉 I think the answer is “YES!” That was the view on my bedroom floor just before I started this post. The just-soaked front is on the left. I really love how the yarn plumps back up once it dries (that’s the back on the right for comparison). So I’m just two 3-needle bind offs and two straight mattress-stitch seams (after an overnight of drying) away from an FO. Packing plans can now commence in earnest!
The front definitely went more smoothly – and quickly – than the back. I’m not quite sure why. While I knitted, I listened to a few podcasts and parts of two books and watched a most-awesome soccer match and a delightful “cooking show” on Netflix. I also did a lot of other things besides knitting (the need-to list seemed especially daunting this week thanks to our upcoming trip) – the pantry run with my mom followed by lunch out and exploring the new downtown Alpharetta, walks in the park with Lauren, pilates, centering prayer (I am All In for the class I mentioned in last week’s post … wow!).
Last night, I even enjoyed a bit of reading (that’s The Gown, featured on Modern Mrs. Darcy’s summer reading list – 5th row/4th column on my bingo card) while I ate dinner. Marc was behind me on the sofa, catching up on the US Open with his bowl of leftovers.
Togetherness comes in all different sizes and shapes!
Happy to be joining in with Kat and friends … Happy Wednesday!
