Not much to report... about knitting, that is

I'm still plugging away on the Landscape Shawl and the Scoop du Jour. I still think I can get Scoop done by Sunday. We'll see. It's been an interesting week and I've got a busy weekend coming up.

I went shopping with my friend Betty yesterday. Always enjoy shopping with her, as we have similar tolerance (basically we kill time until we can go out for lunch). However, I did get the new sheets sets that I needed and a few fun things for me. The highlight, however was that our waiter was a dead ringer for Derek Jeter. I actually did a double take. Hmmm, anyone want to hit the local Ruby Tuesdays soon?

One of Matt's teammates crashed last night during their training ride. Compound fracture of the clavical. It's always very sobering and Tom has not had a good season this year (he broke his pelvis back in February during a training ride). Sadly, Tom skipped the Iron Hill Crit to avoid injury as he and his wife are (were?) planning a second honeymoon. All riders are at risk for these kinds of serious injuries, and it seems unfair that Tom's been dealt two bad blows this year.

I've got a few things to take care of today and dinner with our friends, so I'm not sure how much progress I'll have to show for tomorrow.

Happy Knitting!

  1. That is too bad about your biking friend. It's a more dangerous sport than I was aware of.

    OK, I'm so out of it re:sports, that I had to Google Derek Jeter.

    I'll go to Ruby Tuesday when I'm back from FL! :)

  3. yes, cycling can be dangerous. They ride fast... 30 mph isn't unusual and not a lot of protection. Just helmets. It's a good thing they do that!

    oh, sorry Rosie, I should've included a link... didn't even think of it! Definitely worth a trip to Ruby Tuesdays ;)
