Let the staycation begin

As of 6:30 this evening - I am on vaction for a whole week! No plans to go anywhere - just kick around the house and get some things done. I have a laundry list of chores and tasks, and no doubt I won't get to all of them - but rest assured I will be blogging about what I do accomplish.

Now onto this week's accomplishments. After blogging on Wednesday, I actually stayed up and finished the first Dragonfly sock.

That wasn't my plan - honest. But Dave was late getting home and I just kept knitting while I was waiting. The second sock has been started and I will be working on it as soon as I hit publish!

Last night, I set the sock aside to finish up Crow Waltz

All that was left was the top edge, but it was a picot bind off, so it took some time. It's a very little shawl, but I think it will be nice and warm wrapped around my neck this winter. I'll do a proper FO post when I get a few better pics. I just took these quickly while I was exercising the boys and watering the roses.

Oh gosh, I just knew you were going to finish up that sock while I wasn't looking! Very pretty! I'd better get a move on with mine, huh?

Have a great "staycation". I'm guessing there's lots of running around to do with respect to the fall event :)
