Sunrise this morning:
I started the second of my Spirit-Trail socks on the train this morning — got the toe done.
I had a multi-agency three-hour meeting this morning. In a fit of optimism, I brought my sock-in-progress. I don’t know why, because I never bring knitting to work meetings. The only time I ever knit during working hours is during conference calls when I am alone in my office.
But I brought my knitting. When I arrived at the designated conference room, the organizer greeted me and asked me if I brought my knitting.
Now, that sounds like permission to knit to me. Doesn’t it to you? The meeting was accompanied by PowerPoint presentations. The lights were dimmed and I discreetly and happily knitted under the table.
So I got a whole boatload of work done on the sock in progress. After the meeting came lunchtime knitting group. More progress. Then the trip home.
So here it is in its current state.
We are pleased.
The weekend starts tomorrow morning for me, when I board a train and head to Manhattan. The weekend’s events are listed in my sidebar, but I will repeat them here:
May 19, 2006, 6pm: The Point, New York, NY
May 20, 2006, 11am-1pm: Modern Yarn, Montclair, NJ
May 20, 2006, 2-4pm: Stix-n-Stitches Yarn, Montclair, NJ

So there you have it. I hope to see some of you this weekend. I’ll be the one knitting on this:
I’m getting home late on Sunday, so will not be posting here again until Monday.
And Lucy will be enjoying spending some quality time with her Daddy this weekend.
