Two thirds done

The Crown Wools is 2/3 done, as of last night. I love it. Four more panels to go, and I think I'll have just enough yarn.

After this I'll start on the next sampler scarf that I need to wind yarn for this weekend.

It's been a busy week at school, with our 'Executive in Residence" visiting all week. It culminated yesterday with an all-day design charette with staff from Google, where the students designed things that Google will look at and consider developing. The students (these are our masters students) made a GREAT impression on Google, so that's a win as well.

M and Ms anyone?
We had one set of two little kids come by last night. Two kids. Last year we had more than 20, so of course I overbought on the treats. I know a gang of kids goes out together but we're at a 'pockets of darkness' part of the street so I guess we were avoided. Oh well.

I read a highly recommended book--"Lost and Wanted" by Nell Freudenberger. It is really interesting---so much stuff happens. One one level, an IT physicist is raising her son alone (by choice) in Cambridge, Mass. A former lover from undergrad is moving back to Cambridge and getting married. Her best friend recently died, and her friend's husband and child are also moving back. How these changes intersect with her carefully planned life is the focus of the book. It's good.

I'm reading an art theft/fakery novel right now, which is one of my favorite things (well, it's HORRIBLE but I love reading about it).

Two meetings
I have two meetings today and then I'm done. I'm more than ready for the weekend.

Crown Wools looks great! I've been toying with the Sampler Scarf idea myself - time will tell if it makes the cut.

Kudos on your student impressing Google!

Love the sampler scarf--it is going to be a beauty of texture and color!

I love art theft/fakery books, too! (I wonder what that says about us . . . ) XO

So close, yet so far to go! Crown Wools is looking great - keep at it and you'll be finished soon.
