Monday morning.....back to the desk after a lazy woman's weekend at my house. Lots of food, movies, drinks and chats. Last weekend was a woman's weekend in Ottawa......a sisters-in-law weekend. JC thanks for your warm hospitality and it was wonderful to see you again. The week has been peaceful, quiet and so calm. B returns from vacation on Wednesday...the P & Q will be gone for sure....but we will have stories to share. We managed to keep the office going for an entire 10 days without a hitch. I knew we could do it....never doubted for a second.

Knitting news. Beginner's Lace silk and seacell scarf. I'm about halfway done and it wasn't until about the 1/3 mark did I "get it". Now the knitting is a smooth repetition. I put the summerish coral colour away....I'm still not sure I like it....for me anyway.....and bought this autumnal :>) variegated colour. Love it.
Remember that sock..the one up there...the pair of merino socks I finished last February? Well here they are now....in two neat skeins. Why? B washed them in hot water, with jeans so there was lots of agitation. I rescued them before they went into the dryer but they had shrunk up a bit...enough that stretching and drying weren't enough to make them fit again. I will remake them, someday. After wearing, I put my handknit socks in a small zipper laundry bag that you put in the machine with delicates inside. That way I know they are there and I thought it would serve as a Caution Sign if someone should decide to put some of my wash in with their's. We all do our own laundry - most of the time. But B took the socks out of the bag but luckily only one pair made it to the wash.
