Onward to the weekend  
Looks like it'll be a rainy one, which is fine, as I'm planning to be in knitting for most of it. It would be nice to be able to go sit outside and knit by the ocean but hey, if the weather won't cooperate, I'm happy knitting inside too. I'd like to go walk around P-town as well, we'll see if that's in the cards or not, I guess. It *is* still a bit on the early side to predict the weather.

My lawn needs some serious raking, but I've refused to do it all week because I don't want to get blisters and mess up my fingers/hands before this weekend. Nice excuse, eh? They *do* need to be in top shape for that 6-hour class, if it's anything like the 6-hour class I took back in the fall. It is a finishing class so it will probably be a lot of seaming too, but it also covers Japanese short rows and other things too, so there will still be a lot of regular knitting to keep the hands busy.

I'm nearing the end of my Mariah sleeves. I've already shortened them a lot, but it looks like I'm going to have to chop a lot more out of the chart. That's fine, I can work it out with a little more thought and I wanted to continue the cable up through the yoke anyway. I think I might be putting these aside and cast on for the back or one of the sides to work on for the weekend. Easy, plain stockinette is what I need for the social knitting and "downtime" this weekend.
