The Calendar Says November....... but the weather says June! I'm not ready for 80 degrees. I know, I should be savoring the last moments of warmth and sun before the winter, but DAMN! It's NOVEMBER!!! I mean, I've already busted out the down comforter... and I'm remembering how much better I sleep when it's COLD at night. Hmph. Plus, on this beautiful 80 degree day, I'm stuck in my windowless, climate controlled office. I think this afternoon I'll have to take a nice long walk. ;)
This weekend was fabulous. On Friday, I got some knitting done while waiting for the dealership to change my oil, and then I did some laundry, did some more knitting, and went to Baltimore for dinner/hanging out. Must admit that I'm not a huge Baltimore fan... but it was a fun night regardless... of course, getting home after 2 a.m. makes it VERY difficult to get up by 8 in time to attend a class on pruning at the National Arboretum. Yes... pruning. Yes, I live in an apartment. But, well, my friend wanted to go, and I figured it would be interesting- and it was! So now I know how to prune. (just in case!) ;) Saturday night I went with the parents to see Alien at the Uptown- for those who aren't familiar, Uptown is one of the OLD style movie theaters- you know, the ones with one insanely huge screen, and balcony seating... and then Sunday, I worked. And watched the Redskins LOSE to Dallas. Perhaps at some point before I die there will be another Redskins team worth watching... but it doesn't look like it this year!
Of course, in all my random weekend-fun, I totally neglected to take any pictures. I guess the only project I have to take pics of is the mosaic blanket I started... I figured out the dimensions. Each strip will have 4 pattern rectangles, and there will either be 4, 5, or 6 strips (depending on yarn!)... for a total of 16, 20, or 24 pattern rectangles total. I'm a little more than halfway through the 2nd pattern rectangle. I *think* it's going faster as I get more comfortable with the pattern, but I might be hallucinating.
Next weekend, though, I should have plenty of knitting time... I have a 5 day weekend! Well, almost- I work on Sunday. But I have Friday and Saturday completely free, and Monday and Tuesday as well. I am SO happy with the mini-vacation... finally a chance to really relax and catch my breath. And, thanks to the holiday and my normal fridays off, I only had to take 1 day off!! :) On my to-do list... finally finish dalmore, and the chenille cami, and get lots done on the mosaic blanket. Now, if I can just make it through this week...
