Hello everyone. So good to be back here talking to all of you about my week of crafting and life. It is a rainy day here in the deserts of Arizona. Something we don't see very often, so I am totally enjoying the gray gloomy day. It is the perfect day to do menu planning, grocery shopping, laundry, throwing dinner in a crock pot and catching up on a few household chores I have been ignoring for a week or so.
Ok, let's see what I have accomplished this past week.
I am about half way through my second skein of yarn and have one more to use before I have to do the neck opening. I have a horrible feeling this is not going to be as long as I would like it to be. Therefore.................I will make the turtle neck shorter than is prescribed. I don't see a reason for it to be 11 inches long. I know they want it to fold over, but I think it is plenty heavy without doubling it up. So that will give me another 1/2 skein to work with. I guess I should quit worrying about it and just get on with the knitting of it to see where it takes me when I have used up the allotted amount of yarn. I have 4 sets of button holes made and have at least 2 more to do and if it is long enough will add another one to it too.
I also worked a bit on this:
The only saving factor on these socks is.............................I get to stop well before the toe shaping. So actually, there is only about another 3 inches I need to do on this and then I can bind off and make the toe loop for it.
That has been the extent of my knitting. I have been so busy with going to the gym, visiting my mom, running errands for me and hubby, and keeping up with the laundry. The last one is a biggie for me now. I go through 2 outfits a day now. One for the gym and one for public viewing. The laundry fills up pretty quickly that way and I only have enough work out clothes for 4 days.
This past week, I decided to download the new music I had purchased, onto my iPod. It downloaded into my iTunes list on my PC just fine but would not sync with my iPod. I ended up calling tech support and was politely told I had a 'vintage' iPod. Good grief......it is only 8 years old. It is no longer supported by Apple. So, off to the Apple store goes hubby and I. I am not the proud owner of an 8th generation nano iPod. I have downloaded all my music onto it and have set up separate play lists for whatever makes me happy. I am totally excited.............................I did it all by myself without any help from any techie family person!
While we were at the Apple store, we got a recommendation of where to have lunch. We went to a nice little Mexican food restaurant and had a lovely lunch. The best thing was.......they did not over fill your plate with beans and rice. It was just enough to go with the tacos I ordered. Hubby had fresh made guacamole and loved that too.
After lunch, we were walking to the car when we saw Total Wines and More, right next to the parking lot. Well.......................Since I am on WW, wine is recommended more than beer. I actually only had one bottle of wine in the house and we decided we should pick up a few more. I purchased 5 bottles of wine, 2 bottles of scotch (for hubby) and one bottle of Irish Whiskey (for my evening coffee when I so choose). We laughed all the way home. You see.........Hubby had gone through our bar about 4 months ago and disposed of all the liquor there as we seldom drink hard liquor and also all the wine that was there had skunked. It was stored in a non temperature controlled area of our house. That room has since been enclosed and is now temperature controlled so I can keep my wine back there again.
I told you I went to a Christian concert on the 24th of last month. What I didn't do was post a photo of what great seats we had.
