A Big Green Block Has Taken Over My Life

A big green block, namely H & R Block, has taken over my life these past few weeks. It has been a crazy, busy tax season for me with many long days. In the end, it will be good, I'm sure. But, here in the midst of it all, it is stressful at times. Not much knitting or reading being done here. Some nights, by the time I get home, get dinner on the table and cleaned up, that's it for me.

I did have a nice break from things today. I worked half a day and then spent the rest with my daughter and her friend who came out this way with her to have taxes prepared and then visit Ikea - a real destination, if one has not been before. We had lunch first and then some shopping. That is always good therapy.

I do have a couple of easy projects on the needles to knit while watching some Olympics in the evenings. I am making a scarf for me using Artyarns Ultramerino4 and a Fiber Trends pattern, "Versatile Scarves". It is pattern number AC-32.

I am also knitting a baby washcloth, using "I Love This Cotton" from Hobby Lobby. It is sooooooo soft. This one is #5, Linked Hearts, from the Leisure Art's leaflet - Dishcloths From The Heart.

That's it from here. Back to my knitting and Olympics watching.
