Let's see if I can show you what I had up my sleeve on Wednesday night...oh yea, I was going to say - I was heading to a weekend of this:
And of course, weather permitting, this:
Frankly, there was very little of this:
However, now that I am home and the house is nicely breeze-cooled, I managed to pick up 200 stitches and knit three inches in stockinette while I watched Big Brother. I may have to stop watching it however, because they are all idiots (my personal opinion - that's all).
On a sobering side note - my SIL was stung by a wasp this weekend and had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance. She has never had such a severe reaction before, but these things can worsen with time and repetition (allergic reactions). She now carries an Epipen. Her partner of 20+ years passed away five years ago from an insect sting - he died for the want of an Epipen. Needless to say, this episode scared the pants off of everyone involved. She came home later that evening, wiped out, but recovered from the insect sting. In the meantime, her boyfriend (after age 50, do they become manfriend?), had eliminated THREE wasp nests around their home.
All is well that ends well, right?
Happy Knitting Internets
