Hello again! Many thanks to everyone that chimed in to last week's post (link here) and helped solve a mystery. Although quite a few of you thought my plant is a white hydrangea (and have now made me covet a few of these as well!), I believe that those of you who decided it is a snowball viburnum hit the nail on the head. Everything I've looked at online mirror images the flowers and leaves and size of the plant we have. Thanks again ~ I'm excited to track down another of these since they seem to thrive in our bog of a back yard when not much else is happy there.
This week I pulled out a work-in-progress (and if you know me at all, you're not surprised that I chose something that matched the color scheme of the book I'm reading ~ I'm a dork!). I'm working on my jaywalker socks (link here) and I should be done with them by next week's yarn along. They're pretty easy and I put them away with one completed and the other already started so I'm more than half finished. They're fun and easy and a sanity saver (thanks, Will ~ hehe!).
And look! I finished the hap I cast on last week already!
It was such an addicting knit ~ so hard to put down and so quick to knit up.
That Kate Davies is wonderful ~ the pattern is very well written and so classic and simple. I think I'm going to cast on another soon in a lighter weight yarn. Perfect for a travel, no-brainer project.
Hope you all had a good holiday weekend (if you're stateside) ~ I tried to balance the must-do's with a few wanna-do's and it turned out to be a fairly pleasant few days. The best part though was when my husband (who I've had on chore-lockdown for the last 10 months...and counting) told me to park it on the couch and knit so he could make me dinner. It was delicious!!! I felt guilty the entire time but I sure enjoyed it ~ and even better, there were leftovers the next night. What a guy :)

see you all next week :)
