The Three-Day Weekend of Nothing

Hear that? That's the sound of nothing. Absolutely nothing planned for the weekend, except a casual cookout at a friend's house. I'm not hosting anything, I'm not traveling anywhere...all that's on my To-Do List is knitting, knitting, laundry, maybe pay bills, and more knitting.

Joe's up in Vermont fly-fishing with an old buddy, so he's in heaven. As much as I love to travel (and as much as I loooove VT), I needed a downtime weekend. Not that it's been busy around here - it's just nice not to have an agenda. Besides, there's a group of us on Ravelry making squares for blankets - several Rav members have loved ones undergoing chemotherapy right now - and I've got to motor through a bunch of those.

In the meantime, I got yarny goodness! Joe gave me a gift certificate from Hanks for Christmas, and since I'm a bonehead I misplaced it for about 5 months. While searching for our video camera cable, I found the certificate! Whoooot!

I got Mmmmmmmalabrigo lace weight in blue

Mmmmmmmmmmalabrigo lace in green:

And some lovely Prism Saki in "Brass"

That's about all the excitement that's happened this week. Finally saw Slumdog Millionaire, and I thought it was a good movie. Not the best ever, but good.

Now I'd better get out of this office chair and get on the treadmill. Then I've got some knitting to do!

My darling Betharoopie, I do hope you have a most wonderful weekend! Pet your Mmmmmmalabrigo if you start to feel down about anything. Enjoy your alone time, just you and your wool, knit, purl, knit, purl.
