Yarn Along 2013: Week 26

Holy crow this has been a busy week and it’s not over yet.  Yesterday was Thing 2’s birthday (10!) and he spent it at a combination ice hockey- waterpark camp.  I spent the day getting things done around the house like washing all the pool towels and gutting the pantry.

Mind you, I should be packing more stuff.  I make lists.  Long lists.  And then I decide to do things like make granola bars.

I spent today at appointments.  More rounds of “the last time we’ll…” I spent the early evening on a conference call (that had at least 50 people on it – thankfully most of them were just listening) that was frustrating at times.  An organization I support is in a time of change and it’s a challenging experience.

I managed to get a knitting shot in before the phone call:

bobbles and booksOn the left is another one of my blanket squares – a berry stitch this time.  I opted to start something new this morning so that I didn’t have to carry around that large skein of yarn for a square that’s almost finished (or to bind off and start again out of the house).  Instead, I brought the sock yarn on the right and started a simple mug cozy.  I don’t know if there’s enough in that little ball, but I think I have more leftover.

I’m reading We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates.  I’m listening to Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris (a “re-listen”) before I start the new book.

Okay.  I’m exhausted.    Adios.
