There really wasn't much knitting done over the weekend -- I drove to Chicago while Katie snoozed or snapped pictures of things like "Mars Cheese Castle" with my camera phone. I drove much of the way home, too, or it was dark.
Oh! What did I wear? I ended up wearing a borrowed outfit from Chico's Travelers Collection -- something like the Skyla Jacket and Riverside Pant, both black. I found a cute tank with some nice detail on sale at Nordstrom's to make it my own and wore that underneath, using a large sterling silver brooch with a calla lily design to hold the jacket closed just below the bustline. Katie kept telling me how great it looked and how flattering, so I may have to add a few pieces from the collection -- which definitely lives up to its name -- to my own closet.
Carol asked how I was holding up with this NaBloPoMo, post-a-day business. Let's just say it's harder than it looks and I've never taken more than a day or two off before, but might be looking at a little break come early December. ; ) I wish I had more time to devote to blogging at the moment, but life and work are always getting in the way of my fun!
I have started to Knit Unto Others and made good progress on a Multidirectional Scarf for the Red Scarf Project. Norma's enthusiasm about this project hooked me and she was absolutely right! I am using the recently won Mango Moon recycled silk, which I originally intended to stripe with something, but that wasn't working. This is -- it'll be a great scarf with nice weight and drape.
Last night, I had to take a little time to Knit Unto Mack... that Christmas stocking is just not knitting itself! They will be here sometime over the Thanksgiving holiday and I'd sure like to have a finished stocking!
Work will be weird this week -- I have tomorrow off and Thursday, of course, but not Friday. Yeah, I know. That's okay -- I'll bring knitting because I don't think there's going to be much else for me to do. I have to make "cranberry something" tomorrow, and do some cleaning, and mail some mittens From Hearts to Hands... and blog. ; )
