Friday Features

Friday had a festive feeling about it, probably because I will only have students two days next week.  Monday is a teacher workday, also known as "the day teachers get to go out to lunch like regular working people do" day.  Tuesday is an in-service day, which has the possibility of knitting time, although sometimes we have to do cooperative groups/bonding activities, which severely limits the amount of time I can knit.  And Friday is Veterans Day.  Throw in the Thanksgiving holiday, and November isn't such a bad month.  


To kick off the weekend, I stopped at Cafe Stella, and feeling pretty good, took a selfie that I quite like.  
On my way home, I noticed a gorgeous moon rising, so I stopped, and walked along the river to take some photos.  Sadly, no cell phone camera could capture it.
 But the glow of the sunset was quite nice.
Although I have a few more things to photograph, here is a sneak peak.  It's the two skeins of Miss Babs yarn I bought: one in the Rhinebeck 2017 color way, and a solid green to coordinate with it.  Probably going to knit another Brickless with it, but I'm going to finish my lovely Make a Wish Mitts first.  
And now my local coffee shop, Coaster Coffee, is closing up and kicking me out.  Talk soon.


  1. Oh, Inservice Days! Did anyone ever want to do the group activities? NO! We all wanted to be left alone so we could get caught up on our own work. Sigh.

  2. What a nice week for you. And you look fabulous!! I tried to photograph the moon last night with my cell, but no luck. Gorgeous sunset you captured. Yor Miss Bab's yarn is so fun!
