You Make My Day Awards

These awards are not in order of importance. It would cause me to think and I have decided not to do that today.

  1. Linda and Paul—Neighbors and now friends.
  2. Nancy—She renewed our friendship after about 50 years. We still have a lot in common.
  3. Jenn—Daughter extraordinaire. What more can I say?
  4. Winston—Son I never thought I would have again.
  5. Doug—Husband that I haven’t beaten to death yet.
  6. Bill and Maddie—My brother and sister-in-law. They still love me even when the “Mother” in me shows. They know what I mean.
  7. Colette and Suzette—Always very nice ladies. I think they got stuck together the first day they started working.
  8. Diana and Carol—They asked me to lunch several years ago. Now there are seven of us.
  9. Christine—My newest friend. I like the way she thinks.
  10. Kevin—Grandson. I figure I won’t get another until I’m eighty so I am going to enjoy the hell out of this one.

I could add the couple on the point. They are so clueless. They’re a constant source of entertainment for Linda and me. Doug said that if he can’t decide what to do, he can ask Mike and then do the opposite. He hasn’t made a good decision since he moved here. How did I get on this tract? Happy Thoughts. Happy Thoughts.

I watched one of my Lucy Neatby DVDs this afternoon. It had been a while since I did a provisional cast on and I wanted a refresher. I watched it the whole two hours. It was so good that I wanted to watch all of them right then. But sanity returned. I do plan to buy most of them in time. I have started on a wimple. When it gets a little further along, I’ll post a picture.

Look at this hole. I really like these socks. So—-do I take them apart back to the heel or patch it? I think this is going to be left for summer.

    My grandkids make my day every day so do my kids and husband. What is a provisional cast on? I think I am going to go and check out this Lucy Neatby lady. How many many of the surrounding fibers are worn thin. Can you take out a portion of stitches around the hole then knit them back in and graft them together? I have repaired the cuffs on Siwash sweaters by removing the wreaked cuffs, picking up the stitches and knitting the cuffs back on. You can barely tell. That is easy because it is not in the middle of the piece.

    Thanks for the award. I’m happy that we reconnected after that many years. Time goes by so quickly. Yes, I to would like to know what a provisional cast on is. Wow, you and Christine have such talent with knitting. All I can relate to is the garter and stocking stitch!! I just finished another scarf for my husband to wear when we go to ND. It came out ok. I’m going to put on the fringe today. I think I should go back to my navajo indian weaving. It is easier for me than knitting!

  3. Colette Sheeler Says:

    Thanks for thinking of Suzette and I in your award catagory. You are right, we became friends the first day I went to work, 2/8/71. I’m also glad that Diana, Carolyn and you invited Suzette and I to “the younger retireee group”. I go to the cardiologist today for my pre-surgery clearance, only one week to go until my back operation. Motion is getting very limited, so I’m actually looking forward to it. Pray it works! Just wanted to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoy your site, the creek is beautiful and the pets are adorable. On the sock, you might as well take it apart and re-do from the hole, you will be happier with it.
