Weekending


This weekend was exactly what I needed. I had planned on just hanging around and cleaning for the most part, but Sunday morning my mum asked if I wanted to go into the city, and that's what we did. We ate at our favorite Mediterranean/Middle Eastern restaurant, and after a quick run to Target I have another new bike! We had a heck of a time fitting it into the little sedan, but we managed. Then we hit up Goodwill and got a new pie plate and a couple of sundresses. All in all, a pretty good day.

As you can see, my Rhombille is getting bigger! I'm just a few rows away from starting the sleeve shaping. My Psychedelic CYOAT is also done, except for needing some ends woven in and a trip through the dryer. I have a four day weekend coming up, and I'm hoping to make good progress on Rhombille, because after this weekend I've got, in order:

1. My best friend's bachelorette party weekend
2. Starting weekend for community theater rehearsals
3. My best friend's wedding!!

The wedding present is sitting about half-done right now, so next week I'll go back to work on it. It really is such a pleasure that it zooms right along, so I didn't want to have it finished too early- having finished white lace lying around my house for more than a week is a recipe for disaster!

  1. Congrats on then new bike! The cheery blue of your Rhombille was just the thing I needed to perk up on this gloomy Monday. If you don't mind my asking, what are you doing for your best friend's bachelorette party? I may be hosting one in a month or two and am soaking up ideas right now.

    1. Thanks! The plan for the bachelorette party so far is: Lazer tag at noon, Wine & Canvas at 3, dinner and drinks at one of her favorite restaurants, and a drag show from 9-midnight. Some things might get added in, but that's our main framework right now!
