I went out of town this past weekend, and I didn’t bring any knitting with me. My plan for the trip was to combine a job interview, a family visit, and some intense writing time all into two and a half days. I’m nothing if not ambitious. I also promised Jill that I would post to the blog on her days as well as my own because she was on vacation (oops). The family visit went as planned, though with a change in venue because one of my cousin’s kids was sick, but mostly I spent the whole weekend losing things and being disorganized. I think it’s a good thing I didn’t bring knitting: the only thing that could have made the weekend more chaotic is a jumble of yarn and needles.
So I haven’t made any progress on Jill’s scarf, though I did finish and deliver the sweaters I made for my cousin’s kids (it was 94 degrees at their house when I left – oops again), so now this scarf is my primary project. Just this morning I started John Renehan’s The Valley. I’m only about 30 pages in and am already loving it. After a crazy weekend, I’m happy to be back to my usual routine and will catch up with book reviews soon. Happy Wednesday, everyone!

It sounds like it was blessing in disguise that your knitting stayed safely tucked away at home!
Yes, I think so too.
I hope I get to wear my scarf once before it gets really hot. It’s so pretty! I guess what I’ll have to do is plan to visit SF…. it’s almost always scarf weather there.
GIven that it was 94 degrees in Roseville when I was there on Saturday, this seems unlikely. However, what you’ll find with this scarf is that while it is very soft it is not especially warm. It is definitely the sort of scarf one wears for decoration rather than warmth.
