It was a starting early on Friday kind of a weekend. And aren't they just the best?
A jumping in the car kind of a weekend. A trip to see Little E (he made me an Easter basket! Thanks, Little E! ) on Friday. A journey to the airport to pick up our boy on Saturday. A longer drive to cook Granny an Easter dinner yesterday. So it's been a family weekend. A hot cross bun eating, Easter pinata bashing, tooth crunching, old church visiting, spring flower admiring, sunshine seeking, roast turkey and lamb preparing, book buying, fast knitting, advice seeking, news gathering weekend. And, best of all, it's not over yet!
We have a couple more days before everyone starts back to work. I'm guessing there'll be some more chocolate eating, hard boiled egg rolling (that's an Easter tradition round here), movie watching and trip planning.
And I can't wait to start another pair. It's thoroughly, completely, utterly addicting: working round and round, with those stripes appearing magically in front of my very steel pointed tips. Now that I've seen how it goes I'm on a mission. I was warned this would happen. I want to knit a truly beautiful pair: neat, neat stitches, an exquisitely turned heel. That crochet blanket might be on the back burner for a while yet..
..if I start today, maybe I'll have another pair to try on next Monday?
Last week Helena, Eileen, Miriam, Susanne, Krafty Karen, Deb, Barbara, Gail, Doris and Alison all gave us a wave. Go on, go wish 'em a great week! And have a good one wherever you are too. The sun is shining here. Time to get back into the car for another trip..
