Right now

Wait. Where was I? What was I doing??

 I haven't knit a stitch in over a week... that's unheard of 'round here! I did weave in some ends last night, though.

A lavender sachet for my sister's birthday! This one is the largest I've knit, using luscious sport-weight alpaca-silk-cashmere leftovers from Romi's Mystery Shawl KAL (I'm on the home stretch with that project). I came close but never had the time to finish the girls' sachets for the wedding, and feel compelled to finish them all before I do anything else! (Gah. Why didn't I knit them all in-the-round, again?)

So that's what I'll be doing to fill any down-time at tomorrow's farmer market! It's the third market of the season, but our first. The weather isn't very promising (thank goodness we don't have a wedding!), so fingers crossed!

It's all kinds crazy around here right now...

  • I'll be participating in Art On The Town tonight in Downtown Appleton as part of Fiber Rain. I'll  be at In Times Past with knits and yarn (some of my knits have been on display there all week).
  • Rusty has to be at the airport at the butt-crack of dawn tomorrow (guess who gets to take him?) for a trip to Japan with a group of artists.
  • Annie & her family arrive from Brazil (surprise!) on Wednesday.
  • My girls leave next Saturday for a sisterly road trip to Glacier National Park -- reminiscent of one I took with mine in '79 to the Oregon coast and back, with stops at Yellowstone & Mount Rushmore. I'm so excited for them!
  • And Kate is counting down the days, well into double-digits now, until her departure for Edinburgh! We have a day-trip to Milwaukee coming up for Visa application!

I think I've done pretty well at switching gears from work to wedding and back to work without much breathing time in between, but I gotta tell ya, I am so looking forward to Sunday morning!! I have a few other days off coming up and am trying not to fill them up with too terribly much... other than some yarn orders to work on and some prep for a home improvement project, I'd like to just do some sitting and knitting! And maybe some bicycling if it's nice out! And wouldn't it be nice to actually cook something?

Yeah. Couldn't resist.
Happy Weekend, Everyone!

The photos are wonderful, I especially like the last one. Many, many comings and goings in your life and it's no wonder you're full steam ahead. Smart of you to take the time you need to recoup and relax. Life sounds FULL and good.

I'm glad you couldn't resist - I can't get enough of these wedding photos! I think you definitely need to leave those upcoming days off completely unscheduled, you've earned some time for YOU.

You definitely need to regenerate and recharge right now! I hope you get plenty of opportunities to just sit . . . and knit . . . over the next couple of weeks. Sounds like a lot of fun-and-excitement heading your way. Enjoy! (And thanks so much for the wonderful photos. Can't get enough.)

Our wedding was five weeks ago - you are doing a great job on re-entry!! And I'm so glad you couldn't resist sharing a few more photos. That's a lovely thing to see on a Monday morning!
