See Wendy rationalize buying more yarn. Rationalize, Wendy, rationalize.
This week I got official word that I was selected for a job I applied for that amounts to a big promotion for me. Effective Monday. (It’s in my same agency, working with the same people, so no serious upheaval here.)

Lucy was a big help to me last night — I was baking desserts for a birthday party this weekend. Here’s her contribution:
Very little knitting last night, due to baking (see above).
Have a great weekend, everyone. Contest winner will be announced Monday!
