Recharged. Relaxed. Refreshed.

I wish sometimes you could bottle up a feeling and save it for a rainy day.  In my case, I would bottle up this past weekend.

Good friends, a perfect view, yummy food and drinks, movies, and knitting.  What more could a girl ask for?

I think I've finally got the Uncle Frank hat worked out!  That is after frogging a good four inches on Friday evening.  Fortunately I had already had some sangria, so it made the frogging easier to deal with.

Now I just need to write up the pattern and get it out to test knitters!

In the time it took me to knit, frog, and reknit the hat, SnBLeslie practically had her Just Enough Ruffles in BMFA LSS done! So pretty!

And the wee baby frank socks are just about done!

I didn't get to start my next project, but these gorgeous skeins of Plucky Primo Worsted are ready to be cast on.  Hopefully they captured a bit of the fabulous weekend too and will remind me of this refreshed feeling I feel tonight.

So, are you refreshed on this Sunday evening or early Monday morning?  How was your weekend?
Happy New Week ahead!

We had a weekend of NO commitments! It was kind of glorious. I read some, finished a pair of socks and started 2 more :-) As many UFO's that I have though, I really should be on the finish 2 start 1 plan :-)

LOVE the Uncle Frank hat! I have some men in my life that would enjoy that. I can't believe I forgot that in my last comment.

Glad you had a good, sorta relaxing weekend! My SIL was up this weekend and my son comes home today for a week. :) House is closing in NC so house in AZ can move along ;) Love, love Uncle Frank! Would be perfect for my Uncle Sam. If you need another test knitter I have Plucky at the ready ;)

Uncle Frank should be proud of the knitting patterns he inspired!

Looks like a great weekend. I'm leaving this on Friday, but I think last weekend was nice. It seems like a long time ago!

it made me laugh that you have taken pics of your iknits with the views of where you were! I tend to knit when I am on long car journeys - bit like Gromit
