May 24th weekend!

It's the May 24th weekend and many people will be heading to the cabin or the park or their favourite fishing pond, me I am heading to the basement/inventory room to get my orders ready for shipment when the post office opens on Tuesday. It's one of those tasks that have to be done and this is the weekend it HAS to be done. Enjoy your weekend whatever you choose to do and be safe.

This and That!

For some reason I feel so tired, I slept well last night and went to bed before my nap in the chair, maybe that is what happened. There is so much I need to do, printing tags and tagging product for my orders that are due to be shipped, that is the part of the business that I really don't like. I think I will have to call in the troops to assist. I still have tons of knitting to do and being back to work shortens my knitting time. I have to find a few other people who are willing to knit mitts, any suggestions?
When I was at the Creative Festive I bought a set of very large knitting needles that you saw in my previous post, I haven't had the time yet to try them out.
I also recently tried Domino or Modular Knitting, it was rather interesting, my friend Judy Dupuis loaned me her book before she left last fall to go back to the States, she will soon be back for the summer so I though I should give it a whirl. Not something I would use for a large project but very interesting none the less. This is a pic of my first try:

Not the colour yarn I would have chosen if I was doing anything serious but it was all I had at the time! One good thing about this type of knitting there are no seams, getting each square even is a little tricky but with practise that would improve.
Well if I am going to accomplish anything tonight I had better run, happy knitting.
