OOPS!

No pictures this week.
No finished projects this week
No real time to knit this week.

Ok, well the last statement is almost true.  So let me tell you what happened.  I told you that I needed to make a scarf for my Grandson.  I gifted him a hat last year and he does love it and wear it so would like a scarf to match it.  I was graced with several suggestions of patterns to make a scarf for an 11 year old young man.  So I started the search for all of them on the internet.  I was really fascinated by the honeycomb pattern and found a wonderful scarf here: http://brooklyntweed.net/blog/?p=254  Then as I read the story I realized that I would have to buy a pattern book to get this pattern.  But the pictures were so wonderful I thought "I can just make my pattern from looking at the pictures".  So I started out the pattern.................then I frogged.  Then I wrote out the pattern.................then I frogged.  Then I corrected the pattern.................then I had oral surgery and tried to knit while still under the effects of anesthesia.............then I frogged.  So on Sunday I finally had time to sit down and truly correct the pattern and start all over again.

But as I started knitting I thought of my pantries and how unorganized they were.  (I have 3 of them)  So I lay the knitting aside and started on the pantries.  Four hours later I was all organized and hotter than a lobster on a stove.  So I took time to go swimming for a couple of hours.

By then it was time for dinner.  Luckily I had dinner in the crockpot (spaghetti sauce) and only had to cook the noodles and garlic bread.  So hubby and I ate a wonderful dinner.  Then I cleaned up the kitchen, put away all the leftovers, emptied the dishwasher and refilled it.  Threw in the last load of laundry and sat down to knit on the poor neglected scarf.

My, my....................I looked at the time and it was already 10pm and I have to be up around 5 to get ready for work.  So the poor little scarf got put aside again and I went to bed (after I cleared it off from all the laundry that my loving hubby had done that day and folded for me)

So tonight is dedicated to knitting on the scarf.  I have the pattern correct............the small amount that I have done is looking great.  Hubby has dinner under control for me.  So hopefully by next Sunday I will have a wonderful picture to post for you.

And no...............I did not work on anything else this week.  I need to get the scarf done by the beginning of October so my Son and his family can take it to Texas with them on their little mini vacation to visit the Texas son and family.

Happy crafting!

  1. I get weeks like that with loads achieved but not much of it what I planned. Get well soon, and looking forward to seeing the finished scarf.

    I always know that it's going to be a crazy week if I'm thinking about skipping knitting group so I can spend the time I would have spent driving there knitting instead.
