How exactly is it Friday?

 This week has been nuts. I actually thought it was Thursday when I woke up. I'm awake way too early these days but at least I can get caught up on news and email when I get up that early.

We head back to Eugene tomorrow for our last 'quick' trip to do cleaning and packing, and then we'll be back for a week and a half starting Memorial Day weekend. That's our last big push, and I have to clean out my office at school too. I also have a dentist appointment and then we're hoping to do the final presentations of the Masters students 'live' for those who feel ok doing it in person. I'm looking forward to that. 

Retirement is so close, now, after feeling it wouldn't ever come. Now our focus turns to the last big push on the house. Real estate is nuts in Eugene (in a good way) so we think we can sell it pretty quickly.

I've been working more on Float, and I'm only about halfway done with the first hank. The whole thing takes three hanks! I'll be working on this forever.

I also did some scarf rings yesterday. I am a klutz at tying a scarf. Then I saw a pattern that had a really cool scarf ring on it, made out of leather. I have some faux leather and I tried to cut out a scarf ring but it was too flimsy. So then I ordered some small wooden rings from Amazon and then did some decoupaging experiments. 

The front two are washi paper and the second two are washi tape. Paper works better. 

Mod Podge rules.

That float is so interesting!! I can remember using scarf rings in the 60's and 70-'s (there I go dating myself again). LOL

I love Modge Podge. I want to collage maps onto our coffee table this summer.
I love float, but I need to use up the yarn I have!
I have 19 days of work left and it still feels far away!

I can't believe you are knitting with all you have going on. Good luck with the end of the school year and selling your house.
