At least here in my part of the world. I don’t want to think about what will happen in this country – every weekend a new and horrible event…
I make my phone calls and emails, then pull my head back inside and work on my knitting and spinning.
This weekend, A has to work Saturday morning, and I have Whorls and Purls in the afternoon, so not sure if I will see her before supper time.
I’ll be demonstrating how I make toe-up socks to the gang at the Purple Fleece on Saturday. It started out as a cast on lesson, but then it grew, because of course, you have to work the sock backwards from a traditional one after you cast on, so how to do that? It will be interesting, to say the least. 🙂 I am not a teacher, and I knit completely backwards, lol.
Sunday is THE BIG GAME, of course. And the Patriots are playing, so there is a lot of hype about it in this neck of the woods. Here’s what I know about football: the ball is a strange shape. The object is for one team to make goals and the other to stop them. Other than that, it looks like complete chaos to me. But they have great ads, so we watch, and I knit and spin. We also have a bet on the game, $25 stash cash. Last year, A got to pick a team first, so this year I did, and took the Pats. Hope they do what they have done all year and WIN. I am saving for a spinning wheel, after all. But other than that, I could not care less about the game.
Next week is the first week of tax prep, and it promises to be crazy – software kinks still to be worked out, new procedures on dealing with new software and said kinks. Hope the taxpayers are patient… I will be working on those a bit on Monday, then all day Thursday, Friday and Saturday. So it is good I can rest up this week!
I’ll share progress photos of my fiber-y activities later, when I get some! Should be a few finishes coming along. 🙂
