I’ve had a nice relaxing weekend. The outing on Friday was actually pretty nice and I didn’t touch my knitting once. The club was beautiful and we were only there for 3 hours. We spent most of our time on a boat ride around the lake and at lunch so I was prety well entertained. Despite my lack of knitting during the outing I managed to finish the leg of the second sock and I’m now working on the cuff. This pair will be done before you know it.

Yesterday we took Dad out for a round of golf. We had a great time but I really sucked. I’m thinking too much. All these lessons have me thinking about too many things. My swing was off, my aim was terrible and by the 16th hole I was too tired from the sun that I could barely swing the club with enough speed to be move the ball any worthwhile distance. But this was the 3rd round I ever played so I can’t expect to be Tiger Woods now can I. On the plus side, my putting is improving!

Carl and I spent the night at my Dad’s. We had lots of wine, a lovely dinner and played with the doggie. It was great. We got back to the city mid morning and Carl left for work. Since then I’ve been plugging away on his sweater. The front is finished and on holders. I need to do the shoulder shaping on the back but I don’t really want to do it right now so I started the cuff of the first sleeve. It looks like I will actually finish this beofre the wedding!!

I spent most of yesterday trying to make up the work I didn’t get to do on Sunday. It was a very long day and frankly all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with my knitting and veg. I guess you have to be an adult sometimes and take care of your responsibilities though. I still haven’t caught up but I’ve made some good headway which is very important. I really want to do well since this is the first BIG project I’ve had in a while and I think it’s the kind of thing that people may notice and could serve me well. I will just have to keep plugging away and hope everything gets sorted in the end.

Tonight was our last golf lesson (which means I got to work a little less today which was nice) and we finally had good weather. We’ve met some pretty cool people through these lessons and it felt a bit like summer camp at the end. Everyone was exchanging their contact information so we can meet up and play a few rounds together or just hit some balls at the range. We even talked about making Tuesday nights are beer and driving range night. We’ll see if we all follow through.

I managed to turn the heel on my knee high socks when I finally got some down time last night. So I’m on to the leg which will be pretty mindless but just what I need at the moment. I hope to finish at least one sock by the end of our upcoming camping weekend. Let’s see if I can do it.

I still need to pick up around the neck on my Corrie Vest but I haven’t had the time to really focus on it. I’m hoping things will slow down as the week goes on so I can finish all the knitting before we head out. But I guess if I don’t I can always finish it in the car on Friday. It’s not like I’ll have anything else to do right? I can’t wait till I can call this project done. It’s probably my most involved project to date and it will feel so good to finally be able to wear it. Of course I will have to promptly put it away with the rest of my winter clothes but it will still feel good even as a sweat through the picture taking process.

I’m so tired and it’s not even 10pm. I guess I should sign off and find some comfy clothes to relax in before I pass out for the night. It’s been a long week and it’s only Tuesday. Wish me luck with the rest of the week. Pictures of my sock soon!

What happened this week? Things were calming down and then WHAM super busy. I rushed home last night so I could make it to our golf lesson and I made it home in time to change and grab my clubs with a minute to spare before we had to get in the car and head to the driving range. By the time we got back and had dinner it was nearly 10pm. Which left me very little time to knit before bed. BUT between last night and this morning I managed to hit a milestone on my Corrie Vest.

The neck steek is in! And after a couple more decreases I get to put in the armhole steeks!! I really am nearing the finishing line and I’m really excited. Coming soon, scary pictures of me cutting this GORGEOUS vest! Eeek…now back to work. I’m a very busy knitter.

I don’t want to spend too much time on this post today since I’m starting my first increase round on the Corrie Vest and I want to complete it as well as move on to the 3rd chart (which is the only one I haven’t worked yet!) But I’m trying to get back into the swing of things here in blogland so here I am.

Last night Carl and I had our first golf lesson at the driving range at Randall’s Island and I learned a few things.

  1. Everything I’ve been doing since I was little girl joining my Dad at the driving range is wrong.
  2. I learned how to correct all those things
  3. I do not understand golf pop culture references other than Tiger Woods. Our instructor kept saying things like “Made famous by the great golfing author and player blah blah blah…” Totally didn’t get it.
  4. I’m better than the other girl in the class as well as 2 of the boys (GO ME!)
  5. Don’t let the old men fool you, hitting balls can actually make you sore! (Who Knew?)

So I spent the day hobbling around on my sore legs. I keep trying to stretch out my back since it feels really tight. I think it’s time for me to take some yoga or something so I can stretch out all these kinks. Do they have yoga for golfers?

Work is a bit crazy again but thankfully it’s only for the next week or so. I’m tired but I have to knit on!! Enjoy your evening!

And for your viewing pleasure, some shots from MDSW 2010!
