This week has been busier than usual for me. The Husband is working in a different office and different hours than usual. He leaves in the morning before we get up and arrives home well after dinner time. I have been handling his usual household duties along with my own. Last night I took N to lacrosse. He’s playing for a different town this year. There weren’t enough kids signed up for our town to field a team in his age group. So we went off to preseason practice at a new location. It’s really a very nice facility particularly compared to the other places we’ve gone. I was able to sit on the balcony overlooking the field and not shiver. The other places were completely uninsulated and didn’t keep out the winter cold. It made knitting unpleasant. Last night I knit for almost the full hour without my coat on. It was fabulous. N had a good time and even made a new friend. This town has multiple teams in each age group. It’s going to be very different for N. Also the coaching is a lot more serious. One of the smallest kids left the field in tears because the coach was yelling-and not at him. It’s intense. N loved every minute of it.
I didn’t take the shawl to knit. It’s reached a drag on the floor length when sitting down and I didn’t know what the knitting conditions would be. I brought along the Fair Isle Flower sock and got maybe 6 rows completed. My fair isle knitting skills are very rusty and I’ve ended up with a tangled mess of yarn.
My plan for the rest of today is to get my chores out of the way early and spend the rest of my day knitting. Maybe that will equate with progress on both the shawl and the sock.
