This has been such a nice weekend!
Friday I got a lot done, almost the whole list and never did get dressed for public viewing. 😉
Because A had to go to work we were up at our normal time. By 9 o’clock the bathrooms were clean, laundry was washing and drying, breakfast was eaten and cleaned up, the bed was stripped and knitting was happening.
I finished the knitting on Down the Road and Back Again. Sent several photos of it posing with various buttons so the future owner could choose one. This is the one she chose. She will be home again next week, and so can tell me exactly where she would like it. 😉. I think it is a good choice!
Then I started spinning. This is Deere Season colorway by Purple Fleece, on a base of merino, bamboo and nylon. I am thinking socks, and it is spinning nice and thin for me. It feels a lot like silk as it slips through my fingers. 😊
I also got up into the craft room and cut out the dress and skirt. No photos yet, but they will happen eventually.
Because I finished the shawl, I had to cast something new on this weekend. I was torn. Durrow languishes, ready for the 5th square to be cast on. I have newly spun yarn that wants to join some scraps and be a shawl. And I have yarn I spun this summer that wants to be a scarf for step brother J. I really couldn’t decide.
So I did it all.
and worked on them all on Saturday.
Sunday was about cooking. I had some butternut squash a friend gave us, so I tried a new soup recipe.
And then I made smashed potatoes ( look it up if you don’t know about them, yummy!) and pork chops for supper, using another new recipe.
So I was in the kitchen all day but it was worth the effort. I’ll have soup for lunch all week. And I made enough pork chops for another dinner. 😉
I feel like I was pretty productive, even the day I was in jammies all day.
Of course I did no yard work. Carrots are still in the ground, garlic is not. Someday…
