Our goal, my daughter and mine, was a weekend with nothing. I think we did fairly well.
This was the first home game at my son’s school and Grey couldn’t wait. He rambled on about Friday Night Lights and team spirit. It was a bit of a nail biter and we were down up until the last quarter when we came from behind to win the game. First home win in two years!
I was finishing up my niece’s Azel Pullover but had to leave in the midst of the bind off to get to school. This work thing really interferes with knitting. Anyway, I finished it up Saturday morning and it’s just waiting for buttons. Luckily my niece lives in SE Virginia so it’s not likely to get cold down there any time soon.
I wound my new yarn that I picked up last weekend in Port Jefferson. It’s Lamstrings Ewetopia Sock and I love it. I’m working on Nutkin socks. This is the first folded cuff I’ve done (and it kept me from knitting this pattern for a couple of years). Much easier than I’d thought. The perfectly coordinated nail color was a fluke (OPI Sailing and Nailing, if you’re wondering).
Last night we had our first “Fall” fire. Granted, fall doesn’t technically begin until Thursday but it was chilly out. So nice to sit and relax with a glass of wine and the boys (the daughter was at a friends).
Phew, there we go. Now to dinner plans. I am trying so so hard to cook at home but it’s not a lot of fun. I’m thinking of trying Blue Apron or something similar to see if I can climb out of this cooking rut.
