Weekending

It was a beautiful weekend around here. It started early for me. My sister was in town so I took some time off and we had long walks and good food and time to talk. There were blue skies and sunshine, not quite warm enough to shed all the layers but certainly a step in the right direction.

On Friday night I went to Knit Night at Tolt Yarn and Wool. Mary Jane Mucklestone and Gudrun Johnston were there to talk about knitting and traveling in Iceland and Shetland. I went on their Shetland trip two summers ago so it was very fun to see them in person again. They are such lovely women. Best of all, it motivated me to do some knitting! I am about 1/3 done with Gudrun’s Peavine hat and I am al the cuff color work on Mary Jane’s Solbein cardigan.

And now, hello Monday. It’s a full week ahead but I’m going to keep my knitting close by.
