The last two days of the work week

Pretty good last two day of the week. I got a nice thank you gift from a parent/student at work.
It is these little things that remind me how awesome my job is and how lucky I am to have a job I love. I have a great boss and the teachers I work with are a lot of fun too.

Thursday night also saw by U of U football team win their first game of the season! I got a little knitting in while watching most of it.
I sometimes think the only thing my husband likes about football season is that I knit him socks most of the time. He has been waiting for these socks since June.

Tonight was a steak dinner on the grill, a little knitting on the patio, a little baking of dessert and blocking of my newest shawl.  We hope to go up the mountains this weekend to do a quick photo shoot. But at least we got a wonderful dessert tonight.

Catching up from the weekend

I meant to blog yesterday about the weekend. It was filled with fun, adventure and yarn.  After work on Friday, Preston convinced me to head to a local coffee shop to try some coffee.  It was downtown by the city library which meant we had to walk a ways which normally would have been okay had it not been pouring rain.  I felt like a wet dog by the time we got into the shop.  Even my socks were wet, yucky. But we got a cup of coffee and I did a little knitting.
See that almost finished sock? Well I hated it, the needle size was driving me crazy so once we got home, I frogged it. Re-balled the yarn and started over.

Saturday morning meant sound practice at the church. We headed home grabbed Amy J and headed to the Great Basin Fiber Fair where we got some fiber and I got a cute project bag.
The skein of sock yarn closest is yarn that Amy J bought for Emily. I will knit the socks. The other green is sock yarn for Preston. The two other skeins are for a shawl for myself.  I love my sheep bag, perfect size for socks.  After dropping Amy off, it was off to another coffee shop.  This time we found a coffee that we really enjoy.
Coffee on nitro is the closest I am going to get to Guinness beer. It was delicious. I am much happier with the bigger needles. I didn't work a lot on my sock on Saturday, worked on my Aerea shawl and completed on Sunday.
I can't wait to block it to show its real beauty.  I am so excited about this shawl.  I love the sock yarn and alpaca lace.

Monday came way to quickly but after a busy day at the office. Preston picked me up and took me to the park so hear my boss' band play.  It was great and I knitted more on the sock.

Knitting at work

I got a little knitting in this morning while waiting for the repair guys. I am really loving the colors of this shawl.
Coffee and knitting just the way I like to start the day.
