When I shared my calendar spreads in Monday’s post, many of y’all commented on how full last week was. I don’t think anyone noted (noticed?) that today was empty of plans (until a 7pm board meeting). A full day with no commitments is unusual for me (more so in these stay-at-home times as I’ve added Zoom and FaceTime meetups to my calendar). Of course “no commitments” does not mean “no plans”!
I began the day finishing this beautiful book.
Then I checked the weather … a full day of rain today (with maybe a short break in the early afternoon … enough for a run perhaps?) … followed by a week of sunshine and cooler temperatures. Next week’s forecast is pretty much my favorite kind of weather … I love this time of year!
I guess today is the perfect day to weave in the bazillion ends on Fine Lines (Ravelry link) and block it. I finished the knitting yesterday and tried it on (whew, love the fit!)…but just couldn’t bring myself to tackle the ends. I’m sure it’ll be quicker than I think (once I actually start)! And I can wear it tomorrow, with actual jeans! Just Do It!
I always promise myself a treat when I finish something I’m kind of dreading. Today’s treat is casting on a new sweater.This is going to be Andrea Mowry’s Stonecrop Pullover (Ravelry link). (and yes, to all my Sunday Zoom friends, I changed my mind about the contrast color … I wanted something a bit more subtle, especially after all the brights in Fine Lines.)
I’ve been wanting to knit this ever since I saw @maressamade’s short-sleeved version on Instagram. I’m also planning a short-sleeved version (without bobbles). The swatch was fun to knit – I think the sweater will be too! (and for sure, there won’t be nearly as many ends.)
How would you fill a rainy-stay-at-home day?
