|Marv, Mary, Geri, Skip and Jim|
It has taken us all week to get unpacked (more or less) and organized again. We've been reconnecting with friends and getting things in order - phone and TV service reconnected, bills paid, new car's first oil change (it just flipped over 8,000km this morning), old car cleaned out and cleaned up for Skip, etc. etc.
I am on the picot/bindoff row on the Sweet Dreams shawl. I haven't touched it since just before leaving FL and can probably finish it up this evening. It's pretty tedious: *cast on 3 sts, bind off 5, repeat from * (yawn). But it will be splendid when it's done and I get it blocked. My goal is to wear it to the Knitter's Frolic in a couple of weeks.
I finished the second Man in the Brown Suit sock. I love the rich rust colour and know they will be very nice to wear in the autumn.

Donna and I then visited Soper Creek Yarn in Bowmanville. I hadn't been there in ages and was pleased to see that Tina has expanded into the unit to the east. The door was already there and the landlord is the same so it was a relatively easy expansion.
I came away with a skein of denim-ish coloured sock yarn and a skein of Misti Alpaca cotton blend yarn which may become a linen stitch scarf - after finishing up a couple of UFOs, that is.
Deadline for this year's Homecraft entries to the Brooklin Fair is approaching quickly - April 19. I need to organize what I'll enter this year.
