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!
