As the title implies I am catching up.
I have my collection of blogs to read open in another tab and am working my way through the last week or so of What The Peeps Have Been Up To.
I have made a (very small) start on the kitchen. Further efforts can wait until the slaves return from hockey to unpack the dishwasher.
I have folded a couple of baskets’ worth of washing and put it away, hung out yesterday’s load and will shortly go and tackle the current puddle of towels.
I have dried the inside of the windows – we had a smidgen of rain this week, so this morning the windows looked as if Miss 4 had been going around the house with the spray bottle (and a ladder to reach the high bits).
Normal activities such as dog-walking and Miss 4’s dance class have occurred.
Excitingly today is the first Sat of the month so I will be heading off to snb today with some very plain knitting to plough on through. My navy cardigan (Ravlink) is growing nicely – not far now till I reach a good hem-length. Then it will be time to put on a neckband and finish the sleeves – I am leaving them till last so I can eke out the very ends of my yarn to whatever length I can get – I’m hoping for a decent 3/4 length, but elbow would be ok if that’s all I can manage. I’m looking forward to finishing this one; although navy it has a lot of tweedy bits all through, purple and dark blue and black, so it will go with anything, is not quite as plain as it sounds, and if I can get the neckband right it should be a useful cardi for work too.
I have also started an aviatrix-style hat for Miss 7 with some yarn I bought from the amazing Phezzit (Rav) – it is called Nemo’s Garden, and calls to mind all the incredible saturated colours of coral reefs in turquoise tropical waters. My Poipool socks (Ravlink) are nibbling along – I’m getting closer to the heel – and I have indulged in a skein of Zara for a testknit for Kattwings.
Of course I should really be using a little of this catch-up time to do a little school-work too, but that’s boring. Purple wool is much more fun 🙂
So what do you do with your weekends? Do you deal with household jobs, or play sport, or see family and friends? Do you go out or go on adventures? I was thinking that we need to do something different with our weekends, but that will have to wait until hockey season (son and hubby) is over. Till then I will have to explore weekend options vicariously….
