Hello friends and happy Monday! I was sitting with Deena at Starbucks on Saturday afternoon, knitting (of course*) and realized this was the last “normal” weekend until mid-July. What? huh? Yep, next weekend we’re in NYC. then we have the little boys while their parents attend a wedding. and then the Weekend with the Retreat. and then the Weekend just after July 4th. … and then it’s – maybe?! – back to “normal”.
With that frame, I have five photos to share:
First (of course 😉 ) Friday Night Snacks
This is hands down my favorite way to start the weekend (along with something good on TV – the last few episodes of Fleabag Season Two didn’t disappoint).
Sunday morning’s walk to the lake.
Saturday morning’s walk was on the treadmill and you didn’t miss a thing. I promise.
Porch time with a book (there was also knitting … but it’s easier to photograph the book).
The sun, bursting (finally!!!!) through the clouds yesterday evening. It was a glorious sight. (It didn’t stay for long.)
And finally this… about 5 o’clock Saturday afternoon … the part of this weekend I do not want to see again!
This little pile of mess is the SECOND time I ripped back the armhole shaping on the Simple Tee. I was ready to bind off the neckline on the back and discovered I had an extra stitch. Long story (as in a day and a half and a lot of ripping and re-knitting) short, I found that I had split a stitch (easy to do, with this loosely plied yarn) about 3 rows into the armhole.
But you know I love happy endings … that back is now done and blocked and I’m halfway up the front. I might even be wondering what clothes to pack for the weekend that would show off this new finish 😉 … but that’s gonna be a story for Wednesday!
Hope your week is off to a good start!
*and of course that’s the ONE time I fail to take a photo, but yes, there was Knitting in Public!
