Good Friday

Today feels like Saturday. I'll be all messed up now with the holiday. It's a nice, sunny day, kinda warm, very windy. I did some yardwork today and hauled a truckload of leaves out to the compost yard, the first of many. I'm doing my ham today cuz I have to work tomorrow, and Hubs doesn't know if he's leaving for work Sunday morning or not yet. Ma is making a ham on Sunday, so we'll go up there, Hubs, too, if he's home.

I started my first shawl the other day. I've had the yarn for a long time now. I wonder if I can finish it for the May 2 Annual Firemen's Banquet. The pattern is Sakura Cherry Blossom Shawl and is made with Noro Sakura (discontinued).

I've also got a pair of Austerman Step Carolinas on the go. Very easy pattern to remember, an excellent pattern for self striping yarn.

Knit Nite resumed last Wednesday now that Nova Knitter (our hostess) returned from her trip to Florida. We also had two newcomers -- my Oldest One took a hat that he has been working on. There are some twisted stitches and a couple increased stitches where there weren't supposed to be, but overall it's looking pretty good. He's doing a lot better this time around than he did before when he wanted to work on dishcloths. (The Littlest One has a dishcloth on the go, but he only does half a row or so and loses interest. He does very well, though.) The other newcomer was Marti's Pinta, and is she ever sweet! Never made a peep the entire time. I got to hold her and play with all that hair, twirling it around my finger. You would not believe the hair on that baby. Nova Knitter was an obs nurse for a long time and said she never saw a newborn with the much hair.

Popped into the store yesterday for a few minutes. The Arequipa and Lang Jawoll Silk Socks are selling really well. I'm happy -- that means I'll be able to expand into more colors. (And I was the one who wanted to get it in, so it didn't backfire on me.) I have to work tomorrow if anyone is around town and wants to visit.

Happy knitting!
