Attached at the shoulder
I did everything I was hoping to do last night, but it was "crime time" TV on the tube instead of "Friends." I am so happy with the progress on Summer Sonata -- and K was darn impressed when I held up an attached front and back with neckband! Afraid of binding off the neckband too tightly, it turned out a bit too loose; I think I'm going to work in some elastic thread to take care of that problem. It was getting late, so I did not cast on for sleeves; instead, I enjoyed my accomplishment!
My LYS called yesterday afternoon and the Calmer has arrived. She told me that they'll be closed Friday and Saturday (they're always closed on Sunday and Monday), but that she'd be open 'til 9:00 yesterday/Thursday -- except from 5:00-6:30. Hmmm. Yes, I told her, I've tried to stop by on my way home from work on Thursday nights and found the door locked. She said that she likes to go get a bite to eat. I believe this must be the "emergency" I wrote about a little while ago. I certainly won't deny that a person needs to eat, but I work a 10-hour day with little opportunity to bolt and I pack a lunch! It just seems to me that if your sign says open 'til 9:00, then you should be open. If you have a regularly scheduled emergency feeding during that time, then change the ^*$(^* sign. So, the Calmer won't be in my hands for a week or so.
I snapped some pics last night -- garden (forget-me-nots!) and knitting -- but was unable to knock M off the computer to get them uploaded. Tune in tomorrow.
