Yay yay yay it's Friday! You'd think I wouldn't be so excited since I have to work this weekend, but just the thought of a little sleeping in, a little relaxing -- it really frees my mind up from the weekday clutter. Plus, working on the weekends is totally different -- the office is empty, I can crank the tunes and go to town. I'll just keep telling myself that anyway,...
Got a small package from Jimmy Beans yesterday. Just two little balls of fluff and I'm in LOVE. Why has no one ever shared with me how cool Soft Kid is? I haven't knit with it yet, but it is so soft, so light and airy -- it's constructed like a little knitted tube -- I can't wait to cast on!
I also signed up for ANOTHER knitalong -- the Blackwater Abbey yarn knitalong hosted by Snow. I just can't help myself at times, I guess. I figure it will help keep me inspired to get the man aran sorted, started and done in a semi-timely fashion. And I think it does help -- after our St. Patrick's Day Mexican dinner lat night, I perused not one, not two, but three of the Starmore books I'm
hogging borrowing from the library right now.
The train is going by our building at the moment and it feels like an earthquake! Cool.
On the wedding front, I'm narrowing in on china options.
I like both of them now (Pompano Beach by Kate Spade (Lenox), and Oberon by Wedgwood), but the question is, in twenty years will I be saying, "What the hell was I thinking??"
I like this one too (Westerly Platinum by Lenox). It's definitely more subtle, but my guy thinks it's "too Republican." Any thoughts?
Whee! Happy Friday everyone!
