Quiet weekend

Well, it was a quiet holiday weekend. For those of you who aren't from around here (ie non-Canadians) it was the civic holiday weekend. No-one seems to know why we have this particular holiday. The general consensus seems to be that we needed a long weekend in August and some bureaucrat decided to call it the civic holiday. Whatever. It means it's a long weekend. Yay!

I had company for most of it, so not much knitting ocurred. but here's a picture of the progress on my ballband dishtowel:

Other than that, I did a few rows on my xmas present sock. Not enough to show on a picture though. And besides its a Christmas present. If I show it here, the recipient might see it! Can't have that!

Yesterday morning I weighed myself (just for the butt that is) and lo and behold, since quitting my job at the hellhole I have lost 3 pounds! Without trying. which I find really odd, since I know I have still been eating chips etc. Obviously, I am one of those people who eats when stressed. Equally obviously, I am less stressed now! Go figure....

I'm off to do some relaxing. Otherwise known as knitting.
