The baby blanket measures about 27 inches now and I am really tired of knitting it. I will persevere, though, and knit as far as I can get by the weekend. we a going to NY to visit Mom and should be seeing my brother(the one with the new baby) while we are there. However long it is by that point, it will get the garter edge and be bound off. : )
The Whippoorwill shawl is growing in length but I think growing in width more, at last right now. I have decided to add some beads to it and have been placing them every 10 rows, and 10 stitches apart, though offset from the previous row. I think I like the look but if I get further and decide that I no longer like it, I will just break the beads to get them off. I am not stringing the beads but using a crochet hook to slip them on the appropriate stitch. It makes a great project to knit on while doing other things or when I am really tired.
I have decided to pick up Topiary to finish next, once the baby blanket is finished. I think it will be great to have that to wear to Rhinebeck. Yes, I am gong to Rhinebeck this year. It's probably crazy considering what else is going on but I have been looking forward to this trip for a while and by that time I will probably feel entitled to a treat after all of the cancer treatments I will have been through. Melanie booked a room in a B & B and I can't wait! It's less than 6 months away now. : ))
The veggie garden has been tilled and the tomato and green pepper plants have been planted. Other seedlings (that I stated from seeds) are still in their peat pots on the deck but will get planted next week. (I would have planed them this week if I had enough energy.)
This is the first week since December or January that I have worked 3 days in a row. I am very tired and can't wait to get home. It feels pretty pathetic to be so tired after just 3 days but that's where I am at right now as far as my endurance level goes. I feel very frustrated that I can't do more. I try to be patient and I am working to find the balance between challenging myself to do a litle more each day and not stressing my body by doing too much. That is a hard thing to do normally and it will be a bit harder this weekend. when we are up in NY to visit Mom, I generally do extra stuff for her, take care of her, do a little TLC. This time I can't. That makes me feel bad. Spending time with her will be good, though.
Have a good weekend.
