The long weekend is over, and my Mandarin Vines pattern sock #1 is on the blocker.  I have already finished the cuff and one pattern repeat of sock #2.  I really like how they are turning out, and the fit is really good too.  I think these will be favorites to wear.

I’m a little depressed at the thought of a new work week starting tomorrow, but you know what is so great about a three day weekend:  the four day work week that follows!  ~Even if I am working a side job this Saturday, I guess.  This long weekend made me realize that I am in need of a real vacation.

I hope you had a great weekend with lots of family and lots of knitting!  Happy Labor Day!
