Week's End

It's another weekend and it looks like rain is in the forecast.

Spring has arrived in all her glory. I'm not a huge fan of spring or summer. Spring is a fickle season. Can't seem to make up her mind if it's going to be warm or cool/rain or sun.

This year, spring has spent a lot of time coming to full bloom therefore insisting on pollen sticking around a bit longer than normal. All well and good until the honeysuckle arrives. I am highly allergic to honeysuckle and it grows wild in our yard. aaahhh-choooo.

For those who inquired about the shawl pattern, it's the Gail (aka Nightsong). This is not a center stitch increase pattern but I added a center stitch in order to keep better track of the pattern repeats.
It's almost finished :).

Here's Mr. Bettis and Miss Gypsy sharing a moment together. As you can see he is on alert. The cat entered the room and of course he thinks it is his duty to monitor her activity.

Ho-hum. She only climbed on a chair and took a nap and it's raining outside. Nothing better to do but take a nap too.

We don't have any specific plans this weekend.
My MIL's birthday is today so we're hoping to catch up with her this weekend to celebrate her special day.

How's the weather in your neck of the woods?

Wet woods here, but that won't stop me from heading up and checking on Rosanne's shop. I think opening is near... Then, we're going to head up to Misty Mountain's shop. (Blue Ridge Yarns? We spent a lot of time in their booth in Berryville.) They're a Louet vendor I know, but I want to check and see if they carry Kromski as well...

We ahve sun for the moment - but who knows how long that will last really.

I loved knitting Gail. Loved it - I also added the center stitch. I did 7 full repeats and then the couple of rows required before the border. I want to knit it again - your yellow is fabulous. g

Tis wet and miserable here, it was almost dark at 8.30 pm tonight. It seems more like Autumn than Spring.

Seems as if I'm alergic to everything, I wish this dang pollen would go somewhere else so I could breathe! UGH We got one good shower Sun morning, we need more.
