Friday Friday Friday. Hooray! It’s been a busy week in the school and work arenas, and I am so glad it’s Friday. And I’ve got PLANS this weekend: birthday celebrations tonight for my friend Leslie, birthday celebrations tomorrow for my sister Michelle, a hair appointment (color), possibly a trip to Ikea, and lots of Wii time.
(Now that my nephew is almost 10 months old, it’s time for him to play the Wii.)
And the Oscars on Sunday! Woo-hoo! In other news:
1. I brought my almost finished Forecast to work today, because I’m planning to go to the bead store at lunch and see if I can find buttons. Hopefully I won’t be tempted to buy beading supplies. Ha.
2. I started the second Anemoi mitten, and all of my love for colorwork came rushing back. I think this one looks much better than the first one – I’m more comfortable working with two colors, and my gauge is a little looser. I hope it doesn’t look vastly different than Anemoi #1…
I’m using my Knitpicks chart holder from the start this time, and it’s going so quickly. I can’t wait to start working on some Zimmerman Norwegian mittens…
(God, now that I’m looking, there is a glaring mistake in that mitten. I’ll need to fix it! But no ripping. I’ll deal with it later.)
3. As I knit and watched Grey’s Anatomy last night, two of my favorite schmoos dozed on the couch next to me. How cute is that?
4. Here’s my other favorite schmoo in her favorite spot:
Chili guards the house from here.
She’s a good girl.
I think the Anemoi could be finished by this weekend if it keeps going so quickly. It’s destined for someone who lives in a colder place than me, so the sooner I finish, the better. Although since we’re starting to have 65-70 degree days here, I imagine that’s happening in other places too. (Probably not, right?)
Okay. Back to work. Y’all have a good weekend!
