Spring Break is Finally Here!

My spring break started at 4:00 p.m. today and I was in my pajamas by 6:00 p.m, but I feel at loose ends somehow.

I'm scheduled to receive another steroid shot in my foot in the morning, followed by a visit to the library book sale, but the rest of the weekend is pretty wide open. I'm hoping to clear out a few more bags worth of stuff to donate to the thrift store this weekend, and maybe do a little school work. Then I'm going to choose my traveling knitting, because I'm flying to New York on Tuesday for a visit with Meredith! I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to take my second Spud & Chloe sock, which is appropriate, since I bought the yarn at Brooklyn General last April, but I'm not sure what else I'm taking.

I'm test knitting a cowl for Larissa Brown, using some blue Berroco Vintage in Dungaree blue, but I'll probably be finished with it before I leave, so I doubt I'll be taking it with me.
The holes you see are meant for lacing of some type, whether it's I-cord, ribbon, or anything else you think would work. I haven't decided on what I'm going to use yet, but check out Larissa's version.

Have a happy spring weekend!
