A question...

How is it that I had all last week off, and I am only working 4 days this week, why do I feel like I have been run off my feet? I just feel like this is the never ending week (The Groundhog Day of school days) It's like I have already worked the week, and I am still not done. Today was indoor recess all day. Boy howdy is that a treat. I finally gave up at about 3:00 and played games with them (I have a theory that the brain can only take in what the seat can endure) .

I have been knitting- a gorgeous teal wool tweed (Tahki Donegal Tweed) (tres Yummy) in a vest pattern. It actually is a mix of about three vest patterns (so what else is new?) I am currently on the armhole finishing, and also on a search for buttons. I was hoping for large buttons with "personality", since the vest pattern is quite plain (garter stitch borders, plain stockingnette otherwise) So I will go have a look on Easter weekend. Suggestions welcome for on-line purveyors of fine buttons, by the way.

Annie is off to Toronto on a school trip in the morning-so I had best go to bed for a little bit of shut eye (it is currently 4:15 a.m.) I started this entry last night-too sleepy to finish it, and now I am wide awake!!!!!! AAAAARRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!

Later.....................

I think there are several giant button suppliers in the US, but I have been very happy with Ontario's Camilla Valley Farms.
