I've been very busy with my job, my second job, and grad school since the summer ended. It's nice to have good weekends to decompress a bit. I always have more work I should be doing. I swear I could just keep working continuously and never completely catch up on everything. Because of this, I sometimes feel guilty when I take time out to do fun stuff, but I'm trying to get past that and do something fun every weekend.
This weekend's adventure included:
Road trip to Webs - got some lovely lace, enough tweed for a revamped version of my Estelle sweater, and another skein of the yarn I was originally using for my Estelle sweater.
Next we went for a short hike in the D.A.R. State Forest. It was a little muddy, but the weather couldn't have been nicer. I forgot how much I like hiking. The trees were pretty and the scenery was lovely. Definitely need to fit more of these types of adventures in.
Stopped for lunch on the way home at Red Robin. Good burger, fries, cherry lime-aid... Yum. I also witnessed my first beer milkshake. That was interesting.
Wrapped up the evening by picking out a knitalong project to do with A and B. We all got the same yarn in different colors and are going to all make this cardigan: Waiting Cardi. I'm using the yarn that I started my Estelle sweater with. I wasn't loving my sweater. I still love the yarn and the pattern, but I'm not loving them together. My gauges was just so far off it wasn't going to look right. So, now the Charlemont will be used for this knitalong project, and then the tweed above will eventually become my Estelle sweater!
So far I have cast on and am almost done with the cuffs. No more knitting today though, too much work to catch up on.
