Let me tell you about my weekend…
Friday after work, I got my hair cut off. it was about a quarter way down my back and now, it dries to the top of my neck. I got it cut at the bottom of my neck, but my hair is curly… it bounces up. After that, I dyed the first of three yarns for the Quicksilver shawl by Melanie Berg. I also finished my Vanilla Fog hat by Andrea Mowry that night.
Saturday. my daughter and I had a little girls day out. We went to Target and Buffalo Wild Wings. It was fun. Then I came home to dye the rest of my yarn for my shawl. The Yarn Tree was in full bloom yesterday. I’m very happy with how my yarns turned out.
Then, on Saturday, I knitted my first swatch for my TKGA course I’m taking. I’m very happy with how that came out also.
Today, not as productive. I got about 12 rows into the next swatch, stopped and counted my stitches, and I was one stitch too many. Ugh, I don’t know where I went wrong, but I just ripped it out. Starting over is not a big deal, but I want to finish that swatch today. It is almost 3pm, so I need to get started.
Tonight we are going to watch Rogue One. We didn’t see it in theaters this time. It doesn’t resemble the classic Star Wars movie plot in my opinion, but I hope it’s good.
Tomorrow, work. It will be the crazy busy week of work out of the month. I’m nervous. I’ve been at this job for 2 months and I still feel like I haven’t grasped everything yet. Can I just stay home and knit for a living?
