Friday list on Thursday night

Ahhh, Friday!  I love’em.  This one will be a bit strange – not only do I have to work, but I have to work far away.  So I will get up a bit earlier than a normal work day, and head off to Calais (that’s Callous Maine, not Cal-ay France unfortunately) for a meeting that I HOPE will be done by lunch time.

Should I bring my passport so I can cross into Canada and get some Ganong chocolate?  Hmmm, maybe I should….

Then it is home again, in plenty of time (I hope) to get the mail, start some laundry before we head out to the Grand Theater in Ellsworth for a fundraising event for work.  If you happen to be in Ellsworth at 7, I think you could do worse than attend the event – 4 local music groups, good food and drink, and an auction of what I presume is stuff I can’t live without.  🙂

I don’t see much knitting in this day, but you never know.  I will certainly have it with me.

Other “news”

Sock is coming along – I LOVE the yarn, Tosh Sock.  I’ll be searching out more of this on sale.  I probably will get some not on sale, but I cringe at $26 for a pair of socks…

Sweater is coming along slowly – I have hit the long row section of the second shoulder area – so rows take a while to do.  But I know it is only for a short time, and then I will bind off most of the stitches and race down the arm.  It is REALLY thick and warm, I am going to love this sweater in weather like we are having right now. I think that basically I like this idea of knitting wrist to wrist, and that I will make up some patterns that don’t involve a cropped sweater in solid cables. 

The screened porch is showing great progress – when I got home tonight, the screens were up!!!!!  I took Allie out to check it out.  There is still no door, and the soffits are still open, so I didn’t want an adventurous, fast cat to go out with me for the first time. Allie is neither of those.  She made herself as low to the ground as she could and raced back to the dining room door.  I opened it, she scooted in and we were done.  Probably a good thing as it is down around 0 out there.

    1. lol – I went off without the passport, so no chocolate. Old age is a sad thing.

      true, 26 for handmade socks and some hexapuffs doesn’t sound so bad. 🙂

      It was a long day – but it is over now. 🙂

  1. Absolutely, you need to bring your passport! I love Tosh yarn. All of it. It may be part of the reason why I am broke.

    1. I hear you on that one. I can probably justify it if I get low on sock yarn, which, thanks to the Socks with Sarah KAL, I just might have happen in a few weeks. 🙂

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
