Cherry Saturday 6-10-2017

Today is Knit in Public Day.  I’d say something snarky about how crochet is better, but knitting’s good, too.

It’s also Gin Day, Iced Tea Day, Ballpoint Pen Day, and Doll Day, so spike your tea with gin and take it outside with your craftwork and a doll along with a pen to take notes, and you should have this covered.

  1. I wouldn’t mind having another Saturday, even though I’m at the best bit of my working week: trundling along, with good energy. I’m anglicizing some American proofs – changing the double quotes to single and vice versa, and moving the punctuation to its proper position outside them. Nice and easy, and involves making neat hieroglyphs with my 2B propelling pencil, which is always satisfying.

    Maybe the Atlantic’s spread exponentially overnight, and we’re now several days behind you instead of a few hours ahead?

  2. Have I missed half a week? That wouldn’t really be unusual, but I could have sworn today was Tuesday… I must have overslept.

  3. Shit, I need to get a card for a high school graduation party. thankfully we’re not invited to the actual graduation, just the afters. 🙂

  4. Okay, NOW it’s Saturday and I forgot to set this to post. So it’s early and late.

    Also, if you were thinking of reading Edmund Crispin’s Gervase Fen books, the last one he wrote, Glimpses of the Moon, is on sale for 99 cents (per Bookbub).

  5. I made my flight to Vegas and am waiting for Tall Boy to get the rental car. The graphics in the McCarran Airport wifi log in is ?. I prefer to think of Arghers rather than slot machines!

  6. Need to get a move on, am behind on my new year’s resolution to knit 4 squares a month to finish up a throw I’ve been working on for a while (more then one year) After that I plan on working on my crochet (still learning how)

  7. It’s 96 degrees here today. Knitting in public or private will have to wait for cooler weather.

    I think you should give yourself a pat on the back. It’s an accomplishment to be both really and late. Kind of sci-fi. ?

  8. Hmm, I don’t want to start another project just so I can conform to the holiday. I also am unsure if I really want to work on sewing down the binding of the quilt I’m working on while sitting outside in 90° weather. I think it will be hand piecing day.

    Off to picnic with friends at a public lake. They are planning on swimming but I’m unlikely to join them. This way someone is with the stuff. I’ll bring a book too. Off to look at Thursday’s recommendations…

  9. I can’t believe I missed Gin day! But I did knit in public with a friend I hadn’t seen in something like twenty years.

  10. I didn’t knit. But I did order knitting markers that say things from the Warren episode like “she was warned” “and yet she persisted” so I think I will soon be showing those off…

  11. Watched The Belmont, cheered on Irish War Cry, took my Margarita outside onto my front lawn with my sort of mother in law and knitted in public for 2 more hours….it was lovely.
