Another couple of weeks have passed. They have been great weeks and I have accomplished some knitting in that time.
We took a road trip on the 13th to go and see hubby's mom and some friends in Las Vegas. It was a great trip and we enjoyed ourselves so much. Our best friends went with us and we always seem to laugh so much when we are with them.
I did complete mom's first sock before we left.
I love the way this yarn as the variations in color. I DO NOT like the yarn. It is splitty, catches on everything, is thick and thin throughout and I will never buy it again. But, once it is made up, it really is soft and pretty. I will say the one thing that has impressed me is....even though it is 100% wool, it has not made me itch or break out in a rash as other wools do. So I am able to work on it longer.
I did start the second sock on Sunday, while visiting with friends. I didn't get much time to work on it after that until Tuesday on the trip back and then again on Wednesday night after work. I didn't pick it up again until last evening and went to work on it fast a furious. Here is where it is at now.
I have another 2 inches to do on it before I start the toe section. I should be able to complete that by the end of this week no problem. Then I will need to look for something else to do.
I might go ahead and finish up my socks that are still on the magic loop needles and also frog the sweater that I started and start it back up in the round. I really want to get those two things done before the end of this year of YoP. I can't say that the sweater will be completed, but at least it will be ready to knit the way I prefer to do a sleeveless sweater.
My Grand daughter grabbed me after I got off work on Wednesday and we did finally make the pillows for her doll bed. Now she is one happy camper and I don't have to try and sneak in the house. LOL Actually, it was not a big deal and she is a dream to be around and loves to work on crafts with me.
Other than that, not much else is happening in my world. I have just a tad over 2 months left before I retire. I am training my replacement and she is a wonder to work with. She is smart and learns so quickly. It has been a dream to work with her and I know she will do an excellent job when I am gone.
So let's look at the list again and............................................................
