Good Morning everyone!  Hopefully I am getting the hang of wordpress – I have some photo’s to share with you.  I have been up for a few hours, listening to my iPod and watching Sam sleep on the sofa.  Sleep on the sofa, you ask?  Yep, Sam is absolutely, positively, 100% convinced that the “Bogey man” is in our home – he has been sleeping on the sofa for safety!  Me thinks he watches too many scary things!  I am more than a bit irritated with my 15 year old son who suddenly is afraid of his shadow!!  So, I got up bright and early this morning – brewed a pot of coffee and sat down to knit.  As you can see, Penny went to “protect” Sammy as he snoozed away! 


On the knitting front – while I did not get to knit night this week – I have found some minutes here and there to knit.  As you can see – sleeve 1 is  moving along nicely on my SKB.  I am working through the sleeve increases –  I have about 8 inches to go to bind off and hope to have that completed today!  Sleeve 2 is waiting anxiously for it’s completion as well.  Then, all I will need to do is frog a bit of the bottom – I need to take one or two decrease sections of the bottom.  It is a bit too large! 


On the “large” front – I have lost 20 pounds on Adkins!  I have to frog a few rows from the bottom of this sweater to take out a few increases – decreasing the bottom!  How about that???? 

On the wordpress front – edited at a later time – things are not going wonderfully!!  I figured out the photo’s – but I need to work on clarity and correct size!  And, how this all got underlined is BEYOND me!  LOL, it is all a learning curve!

I cast on another pair of socks this week as well – socks for Ken!  This is about an hour of knitting!  Give me bulky yarn and size 11 needles!  I got the yarn from  Rose and Ruby – it was 30% off, plus I had a $25 dollar off punch card, 3 skeins later – $25 dollars!  Now, there is the deal of the century!  This yarn is sooo soft – 100% merino.  Ken is amazed at my knitting skills!  LOL, socks are a good start for this relationship – from the ground up.  Appropriate, huh?  I hope to have these babies done and on their recipient before the weekend is over!  No more cold feet!


Have a wonderful remainder to your Holiday weekend everyone – please remember and say a prayer for our service men and women who are serving on our behalf around this world. 

 Have a Happy Memorial Day!
