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.
Truthfully, 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.
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!
