TGIF Maybe?

I'm so glad this week is over. For some reason it's been a really long week at work. Spring had finally sprung here, and the temps were actually close to 70 this past week. Maybe I just have spring fever? Or maybe it's the time change? I actually have little green things sprouting in the garden!

I am a bit depressed thinking I'm going to have to frog what I've done on the Filigree Jacket so far. Better now than later I guess. I just hate having to cast on those 256 stitches and starting all over again. Although using markers helps me count, for some strange reason I have such a hard time counting and keeping track.

I've also agreed to let my 13 year old daughter have a sleepover tonight. What was I thinking! I'm just hoping it's warm enough so I can put them all in the backroom and shut the door. I'll probably just hide in my room, in my jammies, with a cuppa tea and my knitting.

I just ordered 2 new books At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much by the Yarn Harlot (one of my favorite bloggers). She's doing a book tour and will be coming to Willow Books in Acton on May 11th, I hope I can get over there to meet her in person and get the book autographed.

I also ordered The Knitting Experience: Book 2 the Purl Stitch by Sally Melville. Barnes and Nobel is having a craft book sale and I couldn't resist. I loved the first book (Knit Stitch). The patterns were so simple yet beautiful. I'm still working on the Einstein Coat... one of these days, I'll finish it.

Judy Collins Weekend :)

I was a slug most of this past weekend. It was grey, and raining nasty buckets all day long on Saturday.

I literally sat on my couch watching movies with my daughter, and knit until I finally was forced to get up and get dressed.

Saturday night, there was a Judy Collins Concert, in my town! We are celebrating our 350th birthday and this was one of the fund raisers. Judy was just fabulous! She opened with some of her old standards. Both Sides Now, Someday Soon, Who Knows Where the Time Goes, Cats in the Cradle, Leaving on a Jet Plane/Country Road medley (that was great!), City of New Orleans, Send in the Clouds, a couple of new songs from her new soon to be released CD. It was just and incredible concert. Especially in such a small intimate venue as the middle school auditorium. The place probably seats a max. of 300 and it was packed.

So, I am glad I got my butt up and out for this. It was a wonderful experience that I will always cherish.

And even though I knit all day Saturday, I have nothing to show for it! For some reason I just couldn't get this really simple TWO line pattern and I just keep messing up on the 6th and 8th rows. DUH! I've ripped it out so many times now, you would think I wouldn't keep making the same damn mistake.
