Nothing went as planned this weekend.
It wasn't all bad, just... well... not as planned.
It started on Friday ( I had a long weekend between jobs) when I went up to Mom's to dye yarn. I had intended to dye a bunch of our spring colours, (Aurora, Breath of Spring... etc) but it just was working. Every time I tried, they were two bright or I messed something up, and had to fix it - and in fixing it, it becomes a completely different colourway.
Now, that's not to say I didn't dye some nice yarns. Just not what I planned.
Next up was a romantic lasagna dinner with garlic bread - except with out the garlic bread (my favourite part) because the loaf of French bread I'd bought the day before was already hard as a rock. Sigh...
Saturday was suppose to be cleaning day, followed by a quick jaunt to the bookstore for some new reading materials and then and evening knit-a-thon to finish off Bitterroot.
But I woke up with a horrible migraine and ended up laying down for a nap at 1 p.m. I woke up at 5 p.m...... with a minor headache and the beginnings of a chest cold. Fortunately, there was leftover lasagna for dinner, but still no garlic bread.
Since Saturday was a complete write-off, Sunday was relegated to "cleaning day" as well as "spend time with Dave day, since I spent all Saturday napping"
But then Dave's uncle called at 10 a.m., and off Dave went to help him with his jeep. Sigh. I could have cleaned, but the cold was sapping my energy and I'm trying to save it all for the first day of the new job on Monday.
So, I managed a couple of loads of laundry, and then Tux and I stretched out on the couch for an Indiana Jones marathon. The good news... 8 hours of Indy makes for good knitting time and Bitterroot is off the needles and on the blocking board:
Hopefully this week I can get everything back on the rails.
Oh - one thing that did go as planned... Mom updated the shop and Friday and there's lots of new lovelies for your knitting pleasure.
