Today is Friday, and the unofficial start of summer to those of us with cottages. It's the beginning of the Victoria Day weekend, ostensibly to celebrate the birthday of Queen Victoria (she of the "We are Not Amused" historical reference.) She may not have been, but we are usually amused on this weekend. We're heading north tonight after work, for three days of raking, dock maintenance, deck chair washing and boat launching. Hoo wah.
I've got books to read, sweaters to knit, beads to string and family to either enjoy or ignore (depends on my mood, and their antics).
Either way - I can't wait. I refuse to take any work files with me (although I should), the laptop is staying at home (although it shouldn't) and I'm not answering my cell phone (we usually don't get service up there, anyway).
The silver grey merino cardigan will be my car knitting, since I seem to be off socks this month. I've finished the hellish seed stitch yoke (but, as much as it pained me to knit it, I really think it looks fabulous), and I'm into the stockinette body part, so it's perfect for car knitting - mindless. I'll also bring the blue and brown cardigan - the sleeves and back are done, and I'm into the fronts now.
