Yay! So much accomplished, and on a lovely Saturday, too.
1. A trip to the farmers' market in the drizzle resulted in quick shopping because there weren't many people there. And lots of good food.
2. At long last, I took four huge shopping bags of clothes to a friend's church thrift shop. They've been sitting around for way too long. While there, we saw that they also take household items, so the kitchen is going to get a de-stash session too. (There was also a lovely Gap cardigan with really interesting cables. So I got that as well.)
3. I finished the Backyard Leaves scarf! Still needs blocking, but it's really close.
4. Finishing the scarf nearly coincided with the end of the CD of Julia Child's My Life in France. I'm a very big fan of hers, and was very upset when she passed away on my birthday a few years ago.
So, now it's onto the Tilted Duster, from the cover of the recent IK. I heard that it's going to be a knitalong on the Ready, Set, Knit podcast, and then happily discovered that I've got the right yarn in my stash. It's Rowan Magpie Aran that I bought ages ago (see a theme here?), is the right gauge, and I should have plenty of yarn for the sweater. Can I finish it before Rhinebeck? The pressure!
Finally, my traveling sock hasn't gotten any screen time yet. Charade is a great pattern, and I'm enjoying it a lot. Once I'm back on the train twice a day (starting Monday - sob!), it will probably clip along at a much faster rate.
