Monday, Monday

No, I am not off because of Columbus Day!  Some of us state workers have to work even though the federal gov employees, teachers and evidently our local paper gets off.  I took it off because I knew after a weekend with Mona Lisa that I need/want a day just for myself.  The Tall Guy took it off too, but he is doing his thing this morning (shooting) and then this afternoon he is going to the grocery store.  And yes, I know how lucky I am to be able to talk him into that!

I'm sitting here still in my jammies at almost noon.  I got to sleep in late this morning (because I stayed up way late) and I am just having the bestest time, surfing the net, watching some You Tube and doing some research on a product that I have been toying around ordering for sometime. 

And of course, thinking about what to knit on next/finish up.  In the meantime, and at some point in time, there are a couple of things that I have to sew up and that is kind of my goal for today.

My Hanten jacket is still on the dressform and just needs the side/arm seams done.  And from about two years ago, Debbie Bliss' Lara sweater needs the same thing done to it.  Then they could go into the needs blocking stack.

The green sweater on the bottom of the stack needs buttons sewn on and blocking.  I guess it needs done first since the sleeves are 3/4 and if I want to still wear it this season, I had better get moving on it.

Next in line and barely peeking out is my Caffe vest I finished last night.  It needs a perfect button and MAJOR blocking!

On top of is the shawlette I knitted back in February.  I am not sure it needs a lot of blocking, but a little my not hurt it.  Before we know it, it will be the perfect shawlette to wear over all those turtlenecks I wear to work later this Fall.

And last on the stack is my Eco Duo sweater that really is two years old.  It too needs some blocking.  I have to say it currently is not my fave sweater, and may be a great one to pass onto my friend who truly takes any sweaters off my hands that I don't like.  I should have ripped it back and added more yarn, and I may still do that.  Better yet, before it is blocked, I may just rip it out all the way and re purpose the yarn.  As I love Eco Duo!!!  Will see.

I am totally going to enjoy the rest of my day off whatever it brings.  I need more days like this!
