Progressing Along

I didn't get quite as much knitting done this weekend as I'd planned, but I'm halfway through the front of this top now, and everything still seems to be going smoothly. I did discover an issue with the pattern for the final top in this collection, and I'll have to work that out this week, but otherwise things are going swimmingly. I haven't started my OAL projects at all except to prewash my fabric and wind my yarn, so I'd really like to get the collection knitting done by mid-July so I have a chance of at least getting started with my OAL projects!

The baseball game on Friday night was terrific fun. We had great seats, and apparently a lot of people walking by were intrigued by my knitting. Saturday was a lot of cleaning, and yesterday I made Thai cashew chicken and had some one-on-one time with the community theater director to work on my characterization and monologues. That time was really invaluable and helpful, and I'm feeling a lot better about what I'm doing and what directions I can take things.

This week looks like another busy one- we're starting to run whole acts this week in rehearsal, which I find really helpful and love doing, but it means some long nights. The state gave us Monday off as well as Tuesday, so I've got a four-day weekend to look forward to. I don't know if we're going to go do anything for the Fourth yet, but I'm definitely looking forward to some relaxation time.

Linking up with Crafting On
