Day After NoSo...

I'm not going to try to come up with any poetry or anything, even if that does sort of sound like "Twas The Night Before..."

I'm wiped out. I can probably be certain that the organizers of NoSo Knit were FAR more exhausted than I am, justifiably! I will say that they do just the most amazing job you can imagine pulling everything together! And I'm so very glad they do...

We got sad news yesterday that our very special yarn shop, Knitters Knook is closing. Friend Becky has decided to follow her man in his work and that will take her away from us, making it impossible for her to run the store. I'm beyond sad. For me. But I'm wishing her and her hubby only the very best. I certainly understand how important such relationships are...and how worthwhile it is to nurture them. She has my full, if sorrowful, support!

So today, I'm really tired and down. And of course, it's the weekend, which means there are chores to do. I did start with Sunday Morning on CBS, and made my favorite breakfast of all: bacon biscuits with slices of tomatoes and just a touch of mayo. A truly special treat, since it was the very last of my own tomatoes (I had only about a dozen total from my 4 plants). Those tomatoes and other plants were due to be uprooted this afternoon (and they were).

Then it was laundry. And cleaning up the kitchen from a week of "bare-bones" maintenance. I knit a lot in between chores...resting my foot and the rest of me, too!
I met up with my Sis-in-law and tried the sock on her foot - it FIT! and so I picked up and knit the gusset and started up the cuff! Whee...the dear gal surely deserves this pair.
Over the weekend, when I was busy watching the debate and the various news channels to see what was happening on Capital Hill, I also worked on Habitat. It requires the use of my Daylight lamp to see the chart and the dark yarn stitches, so I didn't carry it to NoSo yesterday. But this shot is of the cabling done thru row 13 of Chart C. It will look much better when it's blocked.

Someone was very needy today...she wasn't sure she was welcome in my lap while I was working on the we played
a game of Hide N Seek...
Here she's moved just a bit to one side, wondering if she dares to jump into my lap...
I put away the hat, and invited her up. As you can see, she was quite content...

I hate it when I'm home alone...This is the best seat in the house, and sometimes it's just not here. I can't imagine what she finds so interesting on the other side of that door... The Meezer.

Now that is one happy-looking cat! And it sounds like a perfect recovery day after a busy event :) The sock is looking wonderful -- lucky SIL. And the cabling looks great, even without blocking!!

Your knitting, both sock and hat, are looking great!

Isn't it amazing how a meezer can sit near your feet and gaze upward to get your attention? They have the power to instill guilt and get you to lay down those pointy sticks, too. At our house Minky is most adept at this; Torrie just jumps up and takes over.

Great to see you Saturday! I completely share your sentiments on the Knook; happy for Becky, sad for me.

Both the sock and hat look great! It's such a relief when gift socks fit.

The Meezer seems very polite about wanting to sit on your lap. Many cats just barge right in.

Those cables are gorgeous as is the lovely Meezer. :)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
