We had a little visitor tonight.
I'm so glad it occurred to me to get out one of my favorite toys
from when my kids were little.
GB#3 and I played and raced marbles all evening after dinner.
He was so excited.
Now if I can just find more than two marbles,
we will have some epic races next time.

I am very slowly working on this hat,
usually a couple minutes at a time waiting for appointments.
I am using a technique I saw on Pinterest
that allows the knitter to use a circular needle that is too long for the project
by working some of the stitches on one double pointed needle.
Since I saved the idea, the instructions on how to execute it disappeared.
Luckily, with perseverance, I have finally figured it out
and it has come in handy on this little project.

I've heard the term used for longarm quilting before but I think it applies here too:
I have reached the point of the sixteen row garter stitch border
and the last of the last ball of yarn.
(Color is much darker than it appears here.)

Love it. Hate it.
I have "read" my first audiobook through my local library on an app on my phone.
So far, so good.
Next I go to the app to check on my position on the wait list for another book.
Now the app won't let me into my account.
It says I don't have an account.
I can see my bookshelf right there with the book I just finished.
To leave out the middle and get to the end of the story, I have resolved the issues.
I look at the clock. It is past midnight. Did I take a picture today?
Yes. I took a picture of a book that arrived in the mail for Little E.
I sent her the picture to see if she wanted me to ship it to her
or save it here for her next visit.
Whew, that wore me out.

While helping Mom at the craft fair on Saturday,
I got to do a little shopping.
I bought another little carved snowman.
I thought he would make a nice buddy for the one I bought last year.
I was told by the maker that this style is a girl.
Of course. Different hat.

Sunday. Game day.
Open window at the stadium.
I never grow tired of this view.
Today was a good day.
We have a new statue in front of the stadium,
a jersey was retired,
and the home team won in a nail-biting overtime.

Yes, that small section of stockinette stitch
is actually supposed to be garter stitch.
Yes, I frogged it.
I am trying so hard to get to the last ball of yarn on this project.
I will not be discouraged.

You were all correct in answering the recent "What is it?" question.
It is indeed my suitcase handle with its luggage tag.
I have just arrived home from MQX Midwest and am incredibly inspired.
I hope to be showing you some of what I got to work on soon.
