FO Friday: A Busy Week

Knitting 3

It has been a rather nice week. “The Plan” is chugging along, things are dropping off the WIP list. The weather has been getting fractionally warmer. Still wearing the wooliez, but the sun is out. Been out twice for supper with friends.

Went to the Theatre to see “An Affair to Remember” (starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr) on the big screen. I love old movies, what a treat!

The Plan Progress

Wednesday: Mile a minute afghan – Done!

Having finished this I completed the first

Lovely & Thick Roses Socks (Jan/Kal)

Having decided that these heavy socks would not fit in my ankle boots, I am making boot cuffs instead.

Book: Darcy and Fitzwilliam by Karen V. Wasylowski

(A continuation of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen)

Finished two of these Flutterby lace edgings, washing the pillowcases before application.

Harley is my electric Geobike, first time out every season is a nail biter for me, till I get used to him again. We made it all the way to knitting nite at the LYS on Wednesday night. We both arrived safe and sound. DS came and picked him up so I wouldn't have to drive home in the dark, with headlights ;0)
