Because Weekends Were Made For Fun...

I didn't do much of anything productive this weekend...
Friday night after work I went to Erin & Jeremys (E&J's) to help them move in, but by the time I got there they had already finished unloading the truck so we headed over to the pub and had a fun evening with friends.
Saturday, it was so hot out I decided that my spoiled ass dogs needed a wading pool to help them keep cool. In search I went. Evidently, the rest of the universe decided that they needed hard plastic wading pools as well. There were plenty of the inflatable kind, but I wanted to get the plastic kind just to be sure that their nails wouldn't puncture through. Ultimately, I ended up driving all the way to freaking AUBURN to get a damn pool. Its about 25 miles and 30 minutes from my home.
Other than that, I did NOTHING Saturday. Well, I did TRY to knit that blanket. I don't know if its me or the pattern, but I kept losing stitches on the 2nd pattern row so I gave up and went with a crochet pattern I've had plenty of success with in the past. its a simple patter, but with pretty sideways shells and it works up incredibly quickly.
Sunday, I slept in, went to knitting and then went to E&J's to help them finish unpacking and afterwards we had an impromptu dinner party.
I was able to finish the felted bag I was making. Photos will be posted in a day or two once I've found a willing model.
