Back To Socks

April 14, 2014

I decided to remove the grey section of the scarf.  I should still have about a six-foot scarf.  I’ll probably use the grey in gloves. I ‘ve got plenty of leftovers that I can stripe with the grey.  It’ll look good—-when I get around to it.

In the meantime, I’m making some cotton socks.  I’ve been wanting to make this pattern.  I had the needles(000) and yarn.  And right now, I just don’t feel like messing with the scarf.  Have no fear.  I will be getting back it.  I always do.

Scarf for Side Slip Cloche

January 4, 2011

I started the scarf the same as the brim on size 9 so it would be looser.  When it was long enough to fit around my neck, I joined another ball of yellow and needle and worked each stitch twice, putting one stitch on each needle.  I then worked the pattern for about thee inches.  It needs to be as long as it is wide.  When it was long enough, I knit or purled two together to return to sixteen stitches.  I reversed the ruffles by increasing rather than decreasing.  It didn’t take long at all and I was finished in a few hours.  I like these ascot type scarves, especially when I’m out walking.  If I get too warm, they fit nicely in my pocket.

I have figured out what is wrong with the cloche.  It looked like a big yellow blob on my head.  I like the shape of it. It fits snuggly around my head and covers my ears.  I tried a big flower.  Cute, but no cigar.  Finally, I realized that I needed to add a contrasting band.  So I’m currently knitting an attached I-cord around the top of the brim.  It should be finished tonight.  I’m also thinking about making a tam for not so cold weather.

Trying to get a picture of Rue Boy when he is playing is very difficult.  His favorite game is chase and he wears the girls out, especially Olive.  She usually takes her naps in the basement where Rue can’t find her.

Not Yet!

I made a little scarf out of the a little bit of yarn that was left. I wanted to fringe it, but I didn’t have enough. It’s long enough to tie around my neck.

I spent hours trying to decide on what to put on my daughter’s sweatshirt. It’s a nice soft fleece with a V neck in a dark pink. It was suppertime when I finished one of the designs so the other will have to wait until tomorrow. I had promised Doug that I would make hamburgers with mushroom and onion gravy. He really likes it. I’m not a gravy person. I always make mashed potatoes and peas with it. He tried to make rice one time, but I still made mashed potatoes. I’m not saying I don’t like rice. I really do like rice, just not with this dish. Some things you just do not change.

I stayed in all day today. The road looked clear, not not our driveway. When Doug came back, he said the snow was icy. There was several car slides on the little bridge last night and this morning, but no crunches. The telephone poles along there get replaced about once a year.

See the little bridge on the right? There is a sharp curve before and after. This picture was taken earlier in the week.

I have been thinking about making a Whipple to go with the purple and pink hat and gloves. I think I saw one in Knitty, but I can always wing it. And that will be it for accessories for a while. They are starting to make me crazy. Next up. Baby gifts!

No awards yet. But I have been thinking about it. In the meantime, here’s a cat picture.

 

 

You Can Go Back

November 29, 2007

I’m going back to Reisterstown tomorrow. It’s supposed to rain on Sunday and I would rather drive back home than go to the cemetery. I plan on taking a nice long bath Friday morning. I love that bathtub. I don’t even use the one here. Well, I do shower. Then, I will go to the cemetery and decorate for Christmas. Saturday morning, Jenn and I will go Christmas shopping. This works pretty well for us. Males are so hard to buy for. And we are not above saying to each other what we want. We’ve been doing it for several years now. We have a good time. It is supposed to be in the upper 40’s so I will take extra sweaters and gloves. Did I mention that gloves are my favorite thing to make?

Speaking of gloves, I finished the scarf to go with Jenn’s gloves. I actually made it twice. The first time, it wasn’t long enough so I cast on just enough to do one pattern. Now, it’s long and skinny.

And here is the scarf that I finally made to go with my gloves.

This is probably my last blog for November unless I can get over to my daughter’s house on Friday.
