Stitching Status: Fast Weekends

GAHHH! How is it Monday?

Since we’ve moved our clocks back my dogs have been waking me up on Saturdays and Sundays around 6:30am, so my weekends have started earlier which gives me more time to knit. By 9:30am I’ve done grocery shopping, laundry and some cooking so I don’t feel bad about sitting down and watching some TV.

This weekend I watched the first season of Strangers Things with Cher and Jelly. I’m not a big sci-fi fan but my husband watched it and wanted me to give it a try. I don’t like monsters but the story gave me enough to be intrigued.

My sister’s birthday is today but she’s out of town so I’ve got a few more days to finish up her birthday gift. Since she reads the blog I won’t do a full reveal but here’s a sneak peek.

I’m in the last bit of knitting that I need to do and I’m excited because the yarn for my husband’s sweater arrives today! So once this is done I want to whip up two dog sweaters for the girls and then focus on a sweater for Kenny before the holidays. Then I might get to turn back to focusing on some knitting for me!

Stitching Status: No Rest for the Weary

Untitled
Babies and dogs have no regard for an extra hour of sleep on the weekends. Despite all of Bean’s yawning and snuggling we were up at the crack of dawn for a walk on Sunday morning, no matter how hard I tried to snuggle the girls to stay in bed. Oh well. I got up, walked them, went the grocery store, did my laundry and started to cook before 10:30am. I also had some time over the weekend to work on my test knit (still haven’t picked up my sister’s gift but have decided what will be made).
In progress
I’m making good progress, all I’ve got left are the cropped sleeves! And then I told myself I’d definitely work on my sister’s birthday gift. Definitely.

Stitching Status: Distractions All Around

I’ve had an insane week this week with work, so I haven’t gotten in as much stitching as I typically do since I start to fade by 9pm. I’m hoping to make up for lost time with a quiet weekend that will bring me good barbecue and a few hours to myself while my husband plays a round of golf (I used to play golf but decided I’d rather spend that time knitting). But here’s what I’ve done thus far…
Progress!
I’ve made really good progress on my South Bay Sweater test knit. It’s so good that I don’t want to put it down to knit my sister’s birthday present. And I’ve been flip flopping on what I want to make Anne and can’t decided between two patterns. Whatever I choose, I’m starting on Sunday. Other distractions…

And this wild woman.

On top of knitting, work and teaching I’m happy that these tiny distractions get me outside and keep me laughing every day. Here’s to a happy yarn filled weekend!
