Just a quick post as we're about to start getting ready to head out for a nice romantic dinner. My brother and his wife are babysitting the boys and we're really looking forward to it. Off to Tiffany's Restaurant in town, getting all dressed up (of course) and will be back late!
I'm taking a sock to knit while waiting as I don't do waiting gracefully without knitting and I'm sure that's a better way to cope than playing games on the cellphone.
Guild today was fairly quiet, but I handed over the big pile of magazines to our president and got a full repeat done on my shawl. Just one repeat of section 3 to go now, should get that done on Monday. Got a couple of rows done on CPH too which was nice.
Picked up the window cleaning tool from the lockup so the boys and I can clean the outside of the windows next week, yay!
And when I got home a big box was waiting for me, my petticoats had arrived. They're slightly shorter than ideal for my existing skirt, may have to get a longer one later, but that won't be for some time. I'll make some more dresses and skirts to go with them, or I could shorten the existing skirt, it doesn't need to be that long. They feel lovely and swishy, but a surprising amount of weight in the chiffon one. I might also have ordered some yarn from Val at Wandering Cat Yarns.
I shouldn't have, but she has a sale if you use the code THANKS15 to get 15% off and I really wanted to try out her Desert Cat base. I got the rose one, plus a sale hank of a different base to go with it in a minty shade, thinking a 2 colour shawl.
