Like any week after a Knit-cation, there is laundry to do, mail to sort, and the general resuming of normal activities.
Jury duty was interesting. My number was 866. Each evening, I called in to see if my number was up. On Wednesday they were only in the 400s, so I thought I might be a non-event in my life.
Thursday, the judge requested the presences of number 480 -1006 or something like that.
We were prospective jurors for an assault and burglary trial that was expected to last TWO months. Obviously, they were having a hard time finding jurors who could leave their regular lives for that long of a period. We were all asked to fill out paper work, and let them know if there were any scheduling conflicts. We would be notified later that day if our services were still needed.
I am leaving for Quilt Con next week. I know I haven’t mentioned this yet, but I will. And I was very much looking forward to a wedding this spring break in McCarthy. Would these events exempt me from serving on the jury?
On Friday morning, I was excused.
Our very well behaved pup Tok ate my freshly baked jalapeño cornbread. This is completely out of character for him.
My fascination with knitting a top down sweater continues. I got lots of wonderful feedback from the post I wrote this weekend. Thank you all! And a special thanks to Cindy. I think I have finally found the pattern–Diane Soucy’s Mid Weight Neck Down Pullover for Women.
I am given up on using black yarn. I think this blue will do quite nicely. PLUS so far, it appears to be the right gauge.
For a blast from my past, you can read my about the collection here. My quest for perfect wool wear has been deep and wide. I think I will wear this one tomorrow.
I’ve been thinking about this artist’s work since I saw it on Joanne Mattera’s blog last December.
Conceptual artist Rosemarie Trockel calls these works knitted paintings. Whatever they are, I love them.
