“Pink, gold and glittering”

27 May

What a nice relaxing holiday weekend this was. It was my first weekend off after my first week at work. I’ve never had a job that was Monday through Fridays, so it was nice to experience my first work weekend and the relief that comes with that. I did bring a few papers home on Friday to enter into our database ::eyes widen in horror::

The shore was so nice, a bit windy for my taste but still nice. The sun came out and I sat on the beach, knitting of course, in my long sleeves, sweater and jeans. The feeling of rubbing your feet though the top most layer of the warm, gritty sand is irreplaceable. I don’t really care if my sweater gets a little sandy, it’s mine anyway. I think I am going to finish the next two rows of the raglan increases and put it on scrap yarn and try it on again. Finger crossed that I don’t have to do any ore increases. I feel like it takes me so long to do a two row set because I’m counting my stitches after each increase row to make sure I don’t have to go back rows and rows of 300+ stitches if thee is a mistake ::cough cough::

No pics, but I will take some soon of the progress of the sweater :). Heather
