I had another low key weekend. Saturday was Katie's birthday party and Michael was invited, so I picked him up and we headed over there. After the birthday party we went out to dinner and Bill got a fire call, so I let him take my car (which is actually his car, because I'm using his car until my car is repaired) and so Michael and I went over to their house to wait for my car to get back. We ended up playing a rousing game of Star Wars Monopoly. It wasn't the way I had planned to spend my evening, but it was really fun. Michael asked if he could go to the Vikings game with Greg on Sunday, so I stayed home and watched the game on tv and knit and cleaned the house a bit. Last winter I made my sister Laura a hooded sweater coat and she asked if I could put some pockets on it, so I took care of that yesterday:
I attached the pocket as I was knitting it on the sides and as you can see, it sort of stretched out the stitches. I probably should have just sewed it down, but that's ok. She's never going to look at it that closely and it's a darker blue than it looks in that picture, so I doubt anyone else will notice either. I'm just glad to have it finished finally. I also worked on a cabled earflap hat:
I'm going to knit an edging in a coordinating color, so I'll post more about that when it's finished. I've also finished knitting another mitered square - it's blocked and I just need to sew it together:
I picked up a couple more skeins of Tahki Cotton Classic for the mitered blanket when I was on the Treasure Hunt this weekend, so I definitely have enough yarn to make a large blanket. We'll see if I get too bored.
