Ode to my holiday.....

Well, today is the last day of my week off....back to work tomorrow! But it has been a successful week.
Friday: I finished the Umbrella sweater for Miss "P".
Pattern: Umbrella ( Miss Bea's Colours--Louisa Harding)
Yarn: Rowan All Seasons Cotton colour: lime leaf, 6--50gm balls
Needles: 4mm, 5mm
It fit to a tee!
Saturday: Mr. D wanted to go for a drive again yesterday, so I started a new sock for the stash club. I'm making my own pattern and if all goes well, I'll post it later on. We stopped at a few of our favorite antique shops and I found these.I was so envious of Alisha's grandmother's gravy jug that I had to have one too. I just couldn't decide which one I liked best, so I bought both.

Today is so cold, I'm tempted just to sit down with my hot cup of Timmie's, a good movie, and start Oblique! (I have the yarn in my stash)

Sweater turned out great. That yarn was nice to knit with.

Gravy boats are cool... I don't have a gravy boat... and I like the green one best... ;)

That sweater looks great and so do the socks. You are better than me on that. I haven't even started on them yet.
