Friday list   4 comments

I was just sitting on the couch thinking about my day and realized I never wrote the Friday list!

Today is a different sort of day – I am meeting some other tax volunteers for lunch down in Castine. I am looking forward to the day, I love Castine, it’s a very pretty, quiet little town, lots of historically interesting buildings and good food. šŸ™‚

After lunch, I’ll do a few errands like the post office and shopping, and then head off to Bangor for game night at A’s office.

I’ll take the knitting along on my travels as I always do. I am just turning the heel of my latest sock, knit with Cloudlover yarn in “mag mell” colorway. I like the color, but not sure it will really work out well with the prickly pear pattern I chose. They both are a bit busy. But I will finish the sock, then see how it looks on. I have found that socks on the needles and socks on the feet sometimes look different. šŸ™‚

Other things that will fill the gaps in my day – laundry, of course.

Craft room magazine clean out – I am making good progress on it (got that, Crimson Crow? šŸ™‚ ) I have been going through all the old issues, keeping projects that still appeal to me and tossing the rest. I hate to say it, but I am still working on the 90’s, lol. But I have filled one recycling bin and am working on a second. And so far I am still working on filling my first two-inch binder – so that means I am tossing WAY more than I am keeping. Which is the point of the exercise, right?

The next bin holds LOTS of cross stitch pattern booklets, I see a future blog giveaway in our future. šŸ™‚

That’s about it – I should go shower and dress for my big social day.

Here are a few photos to keep you busy until I get back.

These are the last pair of socks I finished – Tosh sock “Spectrum” in the Hermione sock pattern.

This is where I was with Hitchhiker shawl last week – several more points are done now, so it is coming along.

And the three cards I made last week – a little fuzzy photo for you to try to see. šŸ™‚

  1. What beautiful cards. Love the socks. Enjoy Castine, it is wonderful little place.

    • thanks! It was a bit cloudy and cool down there on the water today, but we had a nice time. Funny to see each other in summer clothes and relaxed, not bundled up and with taxes on our brains. šŸ™‚

  2. Love the socks, and the new shawl. šŸ™‚
