There You Go

January 15, 2011

The fit is good.  It goes with my Stars sweater and my Eeyore jacket.  What more do I want.  Oh yeah.  I love worms.

I started another hat.  This one is orange.  I actually own an orange coat.  I am using the Sideways Grande Hat from Boutique Knits.  My yarn seems to be bulkier than what they used.  I’ve had to make a few changes.  I should be finished in another day or two.


Flo is not at all happy about this.

Well. Almost.  I have five buttons to sew on and some steaming.  But I knew that if I didn’t post now, it would be a few more days beforeI would get around to it.  I am so very glad to be finished.  I think I’m going to make about five pairs of socks and then a sweater out of  ONE color.

Knitting is Over

March 18, 2010

I just finished knitting the front bands on my Stars sweater(sometimes refered to as the ‘Sweater from Hell).  I AM SO GLAD!  Philosophers Wool is so hard to knit.  I like the patterns, but I’ll use their yarn again.  

I still need to sew in the sleeves and weave in the ends.  The last thing to do is cut the front open and sew on the buttons.

Ready to Quilt

March 14, 2010

I was ready to quilt my flag when I realized my favorite machine for quilting was in my daughter’s house.  I ould quilt with the machine here, but the other is set up for quilting.  I really don’t need to use the other one.  I can use the one that’s here.  But, I WANT it.  So, I’m off to Reisterstown tomorrow.  While there, Kevin and I are going to see Alice in Wonderland.  I might also go up to Intercourse.  I don’t know yet.

I can’t decide what knitting to take.  I should take my Sweater from Hell, but it is so damn big.   So, I’m think I’ll take four pairs of socks and a hat.  I like to be prepared. 

I’ve been thinking about my next sweater.  I’ve got it down to three, I think.

Intellectually Depleted

March 12, 2010

Intellectually!  I did the taxes.  You understand.   I couldn’t cook.  So Doug took me to Pizza Hut–a large stuffed crust with beef, pepperoni, bacon and anchovies.  Disgusting! But it was what I needed.  I think I’ll make a pineapple upside-down cake tomorrow.

My flag quilt is coming along.

I also finished the neckband on the sweater this morning.   I sewed the skeet for the front band.  I made a swatch for the band and, of course, the size that looked the best is not one that I have in a long enough length.

Stars Sweater

March 10, 2010

I finally knit the last six rows.  Yeah.  The shoulder seams were also sewn.  Next, I am going to knit on the neckband.  I may actually get this thing completed. 

I have also been sewing.  I found a little flag quilt kit.  It took a while to cut all the little wavy pieces, but it’s been fun sewing the pieces together.

If anyone is interested, I put a new pattern up for gloves.  It’s for my friend who has large hands.  I ‘ll be writing another in a smaller size, too. 

I want to see Alice in Wonderland so I called my daughter to see if my grandson wanted to go.  She told me there was a water main break in town.  School has been closed so Kevin has been babysitting has other grandmother.  I couldn’t help but laugh.  She had a knee replacement over a week ago and doesn’t want to do her exercises.  She wants to be waited on.  My daughter can’t stand it.  She and I are very independent and want to do everything ourselves.  I  really  feel sorry for Kevin.  He deserves to see a good movie.
