Yopping Week 17 Update
Well, the week started off with this yummy gluten free cake make by my daughter and her husband.
Which lasted until Thursday for morning cake and coffee.
I wound my homespun I created during Spinzilla.
and then I added ten more squares to my blanket using above said homespun.
I realized that October was almost at an end and I had to take a couple of hours away from knitting to do this:
19 pints of mustard pickles.
Friday night as I headed to bed I was surprised and thrilled to see my Hoya was blooming. My Mum always had a hoya blooming in the dining room window of my childhood home. I bought this plant at a Cortes Island yard sale two years ago. I think it had three leaves when I bought it. I never thought I could get it to bloom. But hope does, in fact, spring eternal:
I knit another ten rows of my sampler stitch shawl using my homespun. Only ten rows to go until it is finished.
and I got a bit further on my wayside sweater - first armhole complete and now I am working on the back.
A couple of swims thrown in for good measure.
An art class with a dear friend (finished product to be shown at a later date).
And a few errands to boot.
That was my week.

That is what I will be doing today after yoga and a swim.
