My piper's journey is coming along swimmingly, and the Berroco Vintage DK is soft and drapey. I hope to get the fingerless mitts to match done next.
But I picked up the baby girl sweater, from the Ones Skein Sock Yarn book, I sent to the back of the queue and can't abide it in limbo. One sleeve was finished yesterday. It is top down so going quickly. I'm also finishing up my 5th scarf for our donation bag, keeping the wee mittens close by and thinking of getting back to a gift I failed to finish in time for my friend's birthday last year.
Lots of shifts at hospice. They went from crazy scary, to time to sit with patients and find out how to make them more comfortable. I liked the latter last night.
Today we travel to the ranch and then to Osoyoos for a Christmas present. I gave D 2 nights in an Observatory Bed & Breakfast and now it's time. There will be driving (knitting), visiting with my sister and her family (more knitting), maybe a trip to my sister and nieces' wool shop, electrictee yarns, ( more knitting). I must remember to read and write and just walk around the beautiful beach.
We travel so many places, but have not gone to our own Okanagan Valley for years. It'll be a treat. Hope your weekend is just as inspiring.
