Sunny Saturday

What an beautiful day this is.

I spent all day in a yarn shop, talking to amazing people. What fun. Didn't sell much, but that's OK. I got lots done on MW's second sock.

I got my hair cut and dyed. It looks fantastic. I feel fantastic as a result.

Tonight, I have a date. Everyone in the salon assured me that it was bad form to knit while on a date (I haven't had a real, honest-to-goodness date since I started knitting ALL the time. The break was self-imposed, it was not for lack of offers).

Tomorrow is for raking. And, I have two new garden chairs, and I can't wait to use them. This is part of my yard:

I can just imagine the possibilities.

A DATE??? I don't check your blog for a few days (trade show,audit, board meeting... nothing personal!) and you go on a DATE?? Congratulations!!! Spill!! How did it go? Was he lovely?

Did you manage to not knit the entire time??

Yes, I managed to not knit. It was hard not to, though. I did have a back up sock in my bag, just in case he was a dud.

This is a fellow I've known for a while - the recipient of the socks that I subequently gave to my dad. I did break down and agree to meet him specifically instead of just running into each other.

It was a very nice date. He's a really, really good man. The kind whose heart I'm inevitably going to break. That said, I'm going to try and be careful this time - I do not want to lose this friendship.

While I have remained friends with most of my former lovers, there's always that sticky period afterwards, and I hate that.

What can I say? I'm a brilliant flirt, an excellent date, but I'm just not girlfriend material. It's true, you can ask any of them.
