My weekend is slowly wrapping up. I'm sitting on the loveseat with the laptop and lots to tell you. Saturday during the day, I enjoyed the electricity and quiet. I read many pages of Washington while knitting at the same time.
People often ask me how I do both at the same time, well I have a few pointers:
1) Definitely have a floppy book that stays opened or a Kindle. If the book is slightly resistant, I use my phone as a weight.
2) Definitely have SUPER easy knitting, my super easy is stockinette or garter stitch. I can also do broken rib or double moss stitch without a mistake.
3) Practice! Do a stitch without looking, then do another.
4) wool or a tightly wound spring yarn works best. Do not knit with splitty yarns, there will be mistakes.

Frodo will never catch her, he is not fast enough.
The snow has finally been removed from the driveway. Call me crazy but it's beautiful to behold, the snow not the driveway. Our power went out briefly again Saturday night, they were repairing the repair based on how swift the lights turned back on. We still groaned when they went out.
I started a sweet little hat for the toddler girl over the weekend because she needs a hat and I had left over wool from the sweater. I like to take her outside for a brief period of time to get some fresh air whenever I babysit.
Today was quiet and I chatted with both kids. We are gearing up to a busy week with Thanksgiving next Thursday. I have a list that will hopefully serve me well so I remember to do everything.
Yesterday and today, I played Christmas music and was filled with sheer happiness.
How was your weekend?
