This week has been really busy – I had our board’s annual general meeting yesterday. It started with a bat in the meeting hall (ah, heritage buildings are grand!) and went downhill from there. Through a mis-communication, some information that should have been provided for the meeting was not and (I felt) made me look incompetent. I was not happy.
But I shook it off, got to have lunch with a good friend and catch up with her. I still managed to get home by 3:30 and the big fella arrived shortly after, so we took the poopers up to Bryant Park for a walk in the shady trees because it was so hot out. We got ice cream at Dairy Queen on our way home, and everyone was much happier then. Buster Bars for the win! (Well, the poopers got baby sundaes with no toppings, but they were happy with that, too!)
Last night I finished mitten #1. This is the Classic Mitten pattern that has slightly different top shaping. (You can click the link on that page for a printer-friendly version.) That is Noro Silk Garden #302. The rest of the skein is pink and purply variegations. I’ve got #2 started. I think Silk Garden is awesome for mittens! I’m knitting them quite dense (using 3.5 mm needles) and they’re very soft.
We were outside the other evening and I took some photos with my zoom lens. I’ll post some of the good ones next time, but here’s a taste:
Got my hair cut again last week – I thought she’d cut it shorter than last time, but I guess she didn’t. Wow, look at the natural “highlights” …
I’m strangely okay with not getting it coloured. It’s interesting to see what’s my “real” colour (grey and all) after several years of hair dye.
Have a ton of work to do resulting from the meeting yesterday, so I’d better get at it.
