Weaving in the Ends

March 21, 2010

It’s what I’ve been doing for the last few says.  This sweater has about 500 million ends that I would like to just knot off and cut, but I won’t.   I like my work to look tidy.  That means weaving in the ends. 

I’ve sewed the skeet, but haven’t cut yet.  I’ll do that last.  I’ve really gotten a lot done the last few days, sitting out on the deck enjoying the wonderful weather.  The girls have been going bonkers.  We have been leaving the doors open for them.  They only come in to eat and sleep.

And, here are my Clown Socks!  Are they me or what?  I’m going to wear them to the circus.  I need to finish them by my birthday which is also circus day.

Orne more picture.  This is for Maria.

She is going to make this scarf.  The pattern was free, but didn’t come with a picture.  I hope this helps.  I wanted to copy this to my desktop, but it was being silly.  I figure I can print after I publish this.  Which reminds me, here’s another picture that I need to print.

Doug wants one of these.  We saw it on our walk.

This Week’s Dining Experience Didn’t Happen

April 12, 2009

We didn’t go anywhere last night.  Last Sunday, I went to Red Lobster with girlfriends.  I would have preferred to go elsewhere, but it wasn’t my turn to pick.  I had baked fish and I couldn’t tell you what the others had. It was OK.  Wednesday morning, we went to IHOP and had omelets.  They were good.  The place is clean and bright and the manager is not above helping the waitresses.

I am starting to like these gloves.  I’m using a size smaller needle, but it still seems a bit too big.  I’ve onlygot three and a half inches to go on my sweater, so I may actually get it finished before too long.

I washed, dried AND ironed two dozen tea towels this morning.  Friends are celebrating their fortieth wedding anniversary so I thought I would embroider some tea towels.  I didn’t know which ones to get so I got them all.  I figured I’ll use them sooner or later.

Sunny Day

April 10, 2009

Normally, i would be getting ready to go out to eat, but the neighbors are away for a few days.  I thought I would blog while the chicken is in the oven.  I hope it turns out.  I am not the best cook. 

I spent the afternoon on the deck knitting.  I pulled out a sweater that I haven’t worked on in mouths.  After an hour, I realized why.  The thing is heavy and hard on my hands.  The stars drive me crzy.  There’s no set pattern that I can remember so progress has been slow.  I’ll try to work on it between other projects in an effort to get it finished, especially since the sleeves have been made. 041009-010
