Oh my goodness, what a week! We are in Week 2 of a computer upgrade at work that has been complicated by every problem you can think of. Hopefully, it'll get wrapped up today... and I can't wait.
We get The Business News of Northeast Wisconsin in the mail at work and I was happily surprised to see Ali's smiling face looking at me from the front page this week! I am certain that she told me about this at some point, but I was still "surprised."
On Wednesday, I put my nose to the grindstone and worked on taxes. I barely took a break and made really good progress... I should be able to get that off my desk & mind this weekend. YA-freakin'-HOO!
My yarn for A Year of Techniques: Intarsia (AYoT Pattern #2) arrived yesterday from Mason-Dixon Knitting! I ordered it (the "Sterling" colorway) on Tuesday and it arrived on Thursday -- can't ask for much more than that! I'm not a total stranger to intarsia, but am not super comfortable with it, either; I'm excited to get started on this project and hopefully improve my skills. Bristol Ivy's Brambling Shawl looks interesting (like all of her patterns -- seriously)!
I'm not sure yet how I'll arrange/change up the colors!
I won't start that project, though, until I'm finished with my Summer Camp shawl. I'm technically on the second-to-last stripe, so it's moving right along. There's plenty of yarn, and I think I'm going to add a couple more stripes.
It is going to be a stellar weekend, for a change, and I'm hoping to get started on a home project... cleaning or painting or organizing... something needs to get started! I'll probably take the kids for a while, so Ali can finish a painting project that she has underway -- and just because I like those kids! Kate's coming over for a while this evening (she's moved 20 mi/30 min away), and Ali will pop over with the kids, too. Never a dull moment.
I hope you have a great weekend!
