I had a week that made me bring home these as a good way to finish…
Aren’t those amazing? Cupcakes from Crumbs (brought home at great peril through the crowds of tourists, the overcrowded train, and the start and stop traffic during my drive home). Yes, I know that I’m part of Spring into Summer (and I’ve been doing pretty well) but this week just called for cupcakes. I can’t decide between the two in the middle – Hostess or Devil Dog?
I found out on Tuesday that I’ll be having surgery on May 7; its same day surgery, and I’ll be off work until May 18. I’m actually glad that this is finally scheduled, and that it will be over. I’m tired of doctors and tests. And I’m hopeful that it will resolve all the issues I’ve been having. And I’m sort of happy to have some enforced knitting time. 🙂
I found out yesterday that I made it through the reorg, and that my job is ok (as much as any job is ok). I was really relieved to get this over with – this has been coming for a year. I’m really busy at work, and it sounds like I’ll be busier – which is always a good thing. Not so good when I know I’m going to be out – and when there are less people there to cover for me.
I’ve been working slowly but steadily on the Aeolian shawl – except for Tuesday. Tuesday I forgot what row I was on, and knit, tinked, knit, tinked, knit, tinked…until I realized I was on the wrong row. After that, things got better and I’ve finished the third chart. I am really enjoying this one – and I hope that I can finish it in time to send to my Mother for Mother’s Day.
I also started some new commute knitting…
This is my April/May sock of the month – Socks That Rock and Monkeys. Perfect. I’m finishing up the first sock – I can’t believe how fast Monkeys knit up. And as always – loving the STR.
This weekend is supposed to be beautiful in the Northeast US; temps in the 80’s and sun! I’m so tired of cold and rainy weather, and I’m looking forward to getting out and enjoying the warm temps. Not sure what I’m doing completely, but I have knitting group tomorrow, and then who knows?
OK, time for dinner and a cupcake…have a great weekend!
