I was going to go to Austin today for a four-day weekend, but I forgot that when I have more than two days off in a row my body decides that it’s time to release all the sickness it’s been saving up. (and since the last time I had more than two days off was November of 2012, that’s a lot of sickness)

Heading to Austin this Weekend
my bosses made me take some vacation time (because I’m getting close to the maximum accrual, and because I’ve never taken a vacation)
So lacking any better ideas I decided to go to Austin, Unfortunately is seems that all my Austin based friends have chosen that weekend to go on their own vacations, So if anyone wants to hang out drop me a line.
my goals for the vacation
a: hike the greenbelt
b: at least 1, maybe 2 trips to Hippie Hollow
I’ll be bringing my camera if anyone’s interested in posing for me, and my knitting, if I can figure out a way to get it all in one bag

I may have taught this spider to knit.
I was finishing the last 20 rows at the park, when this little spider wandered over to me, It climbed up my knitting bag, and walked all up and down the piece, then climbed onto my hand and watched me for a couple rows.
After the second row it started waving it’s front four legs as if to get my attention. Once I was looking at it, it started pulling silk from its spinneret, and fiddling with it. I don’t know if it was knitting or purling as it was quite small scale, but every few seconds it would stop and look up at me to see if I was still watching. After a little bit I moved it to one of the vines overhanging the archway I was sitting in, and it went about its business.
This wasn’t the only unusual thing that happened at the park today, but it was the most unusual.

Just Calculated: knit 71 rows today, which is one row shy of being a quarter of the whole thing
