The Booty
Sandy's Sky Saturday Begins

Ah, Friday…

It has been a crazy couple of weeks and last weekend will be hard to top.  There are few things better than hanging out with grrls who get you, who love you, who know you and share many of the same interests (and put up with your crazy driving skills). Carole has been documenting our weekend of revelry very well.  What else would you expect from a librarian?  The down side of travel is how tiring can be. A quiet weekend is much needed but, while it may have been nice to kick back, relax and knit in peace, the SnB grrls are cooking up some fun for Michaele (sadly, she's moving back to Colorado). It will be worth the time to send her off with some Utah wackiness and extra TLC. 

OnlyalittleknittingonthetripTruthfully, little knitting has been accomplished over the last two weeks.  The only project nearing an end is the Openwork Rib socks in Dave's Parrot yarn. Almost all of the second sock was knit on the way to Estes and back.  The yarn and pattern are great together and made for good car knitting. The toe is near...an FO they will be very soon.

Ceceandfirstsleevecolor Wednesday was the first chance in some time to sit quietly and knit.  CeCe was nearby and found her way into my lap. Progress was made...the body is up to the armscye and the first sleeve is on the needles. (Did you see Julia's CeCe?  They both look great!)  As soon as the socks and CeCe are finished I'll dive into The Amazing Lace project, Jóhö, with abandon.  She deserves some quality time (along with another pair of socks, of course).

It's the weekend of Claudia's 150 mile MS ride! Let's wish her success.  Generous knitters helped her raise over $15,000!!   And Cara's Spin Out is in Central Park tomorrow...sigh, my heart is with you all.  Cara raised over $10,000 for Heifer International and there is still a chance to  give and win until the 30th! (ETA: link now fixed).  That grrl cooked up some prizes that make it well worth a donation. Claudia and Cara, you two have brought knitters together in such a positive way. Knitters really should take over the world.

The first weekend of summer is already here.  Make it a good one whatever you do!

Both projects are beautiful! I love the colors of both. Can't wait to see what's next!

I hope you fit in some rest and knitting this weekend. I could use that, too!
Give Michaele a big ole hug from me, okay? Miss you madly!

Thank you for the link! We will miss you tomorrow when i'm sitting in CP huddled against the torrential rain with tarps over my wheel. ;-)

Yes, find some time to rest! And knit.

Have a restful and relaxing weekend!

I know what you mean about the unfortunate tiring effect of great travel weekends. When are they going to come up with a cure for that? I hope you get some R&R this weekend.

Enjoy your restful weekend and send some good weather vibes our way for the Spin Out. I'm afraid poor Cara will melt in the rain with a broken heart if it's really bad.

I must show Charlotte some affection myself, so far it's been a not so Amazing Lace for me!

The parrot socks are very pretty! CeCe is looking good as well. Bonne writes such nice patterns.

I hope you also have a great weekend! I have no doubt the mile high gals will take good care of Michaele!

The parrot socks are looking good...hope you have a wonderful, restful weekend.

Hate to bother you, but I was wondering if you could check to see if I will be getting and invitation to post on the Trek along? Lisa told me about it, and I've had a blast so far. Thanks

Gorgeous projects.

wish you lived closer so you could help peel Cara off the wall .....

glad you've been having big fun. Have a great weekend.

did i miss something? what's up with "flat Scout"? that looks like fun.

Have a restful and knit filled weekend. :)

I am envious of your quiet knitting time and am hoping to finally get the chance to dive in and finish CeCe this weekend.

I just got back from several days of crazy travel myself, so I can totally identify. What yarn are you using for those socks? It looks a lot like the Mountain Colors I used for my mom's socks a while back. By the way, speaking of the Amazing Lace, guess what I finally started?

I absolutely know what you mean about being tired after such a trip. I'm still a bit worn out from the weekend, but it was good and I definitely don't regret it at all. You're making great progress on CeCe. I decided to scrap mine and start over later. I'm all consumed by lace at th emoment. The lure of yos is calling.

Yeah boy. The crash after having so much fun is hard!! But the memories will last forever. And the friendships. This blogging stuff is so much fun but it's the greatest when we can get together with like minded grrlfriends. :)

Have a great weekend Margene!
