I am off to my radiation oncologist today. I think they might be taking x-rays. Oh joy, more radiation.

On the home front, Yarn Rascal lives on. At the moment, he is happily destroying a cardboard box that once held yarn. His happiness is going to be interrupted as soon as I finish this blog.

This will be a working weekend for me. A 24 hour turn around tech edit for one pattern. Complete a test seaming of a set-in sleeve using yarn that I hate. Photograph the results and send them to the author. Complete the hat and sew on the buttons for my own design of a baby’s cardigan, complete the polished write-up of the pattern, and photograph said cardigan and hat so I can get them out to the test knitters and have it back by January.

Somewhere in there I will find time to do all the other household chores that need my attention and keep Yarn Rascal under some semblance of control. Why does this look like a list that is doomed for failure?

Have a good weekend.
