Short Weekend

The Friday after the Snowday felt like a Monday. (Huh?) The kids and I slogged through the day, and then I spent three hours after work sitting in another classroom, this time as a student, in the second class in the gifted education series. And then turned around and went back on Saturday morning for another eight hours, without a lunch break! Whew, long weekend.

I did manage to finish the Pebble vest, which is really cute, but looks awfully small. It's stretchy though, so it will probably fit. I think these buttons would work, but they're a bit big and I only have six, so if I use them, I'll have to reknit the shoulder with only one buttonhole instead of two.

I'm thinking of starting one of those super-sized cowls next, although I should work on a sock. Should? There is no should in knitting, only do. Hmm, maybe I'll start a Yoda kimono. . . .


  1. I love the kimono. This is a great style for babies. I like your 'no shoulds' attitude. Enjoy what's left of the weekend...knit a bit, walk a bit, eat a bit. Life needs balance

  2. The vest looks really cute. I have been thinking of starting that cowl as well. What did you end up starting?

  3. Stephanie--I did take a walk, thanks to your suggestion and it was lovely.

    Louise--I didn't start either one but spent time unraveling some projects that had lost their appeal. I'm at loose ends right now but I'll find something soon.
