I had a great weekend! As I mentioned before I took off Friday (unfortunately we didn't get it as a 'holiday') & Monday. So the time away has been much needed and enjoyed! I did absolutely NOTHING!
On Easter, my actual birthday, I went to church in my jeans to worship! Had a nice brunch afterwards and my Sunday ritual is always a NAP! That definitely happened. :op I got a lot of rest this weekend! I have just been all wound up at work so this was great to unwind. Then Sunday night went out for a very nice dinner at Ruth's Chris. It was fabulous! So Ms. Crimson Purl celebrated another grace year and turned 32! :o) My day was wonderful! I am so blessed with people who care & love me!
During my down time I have been knitting!! So much so my hand is a little bit sore. Will be taking a short break and wearing my glove again while I knit. I have been mainly making progress on my lizard afghan (go figure and this was suppose to be my long term project! Haha). It is VERY addictive...you just want to do "a little bit more". Shish! So now I have 5 blocks completed and looking at how I quickly depleted my cute Easter yarn basket! It will be time to get more yarn soon! (Sidebar: my own private SATC marathons is GREAT for knitting! :op )
Ms. Marigold is coming along (a nice little vest - wondering if it is going to be too tight!). I am really not sure if I am going to like it now....not sure what it is...the more it grows the less I am liking it! LOL One minute I like the color, then I don't (thinking I should have picked a lighter or multi color yarn). Moments later I think it is too thin and I can see my tension varying throughout the project (so it is not perfect in my mind) and then the next moment I am okay with everything...but I press on so I can see the end result! I'll see how I feel once I get the neckline on there.
No pics of my WIPs until I get a digi cam so I can show some quality work! (esp. on the lizard my cell cam really does it no justice) I am already thinking about my next 2 projects. Definitely know I will be working on ankle socks, but still deciding between three options on my next garment piece (2 for me, 1 as a possible gift).
My girlfriend sent me more pics today of Elizabeth Grace and her booties
