Feather and Fan Socks

July 26, 2010

Another nice pair of socks.  For me.  I followed the pattern until I came to the toe and made a rounded toe.  I like it better than anything else I’ve tried.

A short swift rain storm came through yesterday evening.  The temperature has been more normal all day.  We were able to walk down to the pier this morning without passing out.  I also got some weeding in.  I’m happy, but pretty tired.

Stinking Up the Kitchen

July 19, 2010

I finally cooked the Italian sausage I bought about ten days ago.   I kept hoping the weather would improve.  I gave it up today and cooked the things.  I hate it when I buy meat at the supermarket and then I want to throw it out.  I have to make myself cook it.  It really was very good.  I threw spaghetti sauce on it and had fresh parmesan cheese.  I cooked tiny shells and peas.  It made a nice tasty meal.  Sometimes, I wonder what is the matter with me.  Maybe it’s the sinus headache that I had all afternoon.

Here’s a better sock picture.  I am very happy with the  stripes.  I worked on them for a little while on the porch this afternoon.  The heat and my headache drove me back inside.  I worked on my nightie, but I had to stop.  I wish I had it finished.

Doug is still ripping up the dining room.  Cora is trying to take up the carpeting, but she hasn’t quite got it figured out. Or maybe she wanted it to stay right where it was.  She’ll change her mind when she sees the nice tile floor.

Only A Nightie

July 18, 2010

I’ve been sewing for nearly sixty years.  The pattern that I made was from a nightie I had bought about fifteen years ago when I weighed about fifty pounds more than I do now.  I’m not worried about proper fit.  I know it’s comfortable.  I’ve made it six or eight times.  Precision doesn’t matter.  It’s just a nightie.

I started these socks last night.  It’s Feather and Fan from Socks Socks Socks.  I used Sockotta again.  I think this will be my last pair of cotton socks for a while.  I want to make my Red Bird kit from May and another pair for an old friend.  I also need to make a couple of pair pf gloves.

Flo thinks she’s hiding.
