Well, hello everyone. Another fine Sunday it is here in the great state of Arizona. It is a wee bit warm outside, so I am happy to be inside updating my blog for this years "Year of Projects" post.
Thursday, I went to see my Ortho Dr and was told I could be out of my brace most of the time. I still need to wear it to sleep, drive and doing any chores that require lifting with the thumb. I am so happy..............................My knitting needles are so happy...................this makes everyone happy that is in contact with me too. LOL
So what did I do this week?
I grabbed my Spring Tulip socks and worked on the second one and now it is ready for me to do the heel. Of course I will be doing the Fish Lips Kiss heel again. Then all I have left is the foot on both socks, to complete.
My mom has been telling me she needs more bed socks. This time I am making them with worsted weight yarn.
I started this one on Friday night and finished it Saturday. I have started the second one
and am hoping to have it ready by my visit to her tomorrow. I have to make them in 100% acrylic, as the facility where she lives washes and dries EVERYTHING. The socks I made her before had about 10% wool in them and they are so stiff and nasty now. I really do not have a pattern for this sock. Just kind of winged it. If they fit, I will make more of them for her.
We had our Grand on Saturday. So we did a little shopping. I found a pattern to make her, her sleep shorts she wants. She found a fleece material and is so excited to have something that soft to wear to bed. I should be able to make those as soon as the bed sock is completed. I would like to have them done by Tuesday, when we get her from school.
On our shopping trip I found this yarn.
I have seen these lovely types of yarns all over the place, but they are all wool. That made me very sad (insert sad face here). Well, I am now a very happy person. JoAnn's had these in 100% acrylic and they were on sale. I bought 3 of this color as I was told it would take that much to make a shawl out of them. So my stash has been enhanced a bit more.
Do you realize, we only have 9 more weeks before YOP 6 is completed and YOP 7 will start? I swear, after Christmas, the time just flies by for the YOP. I looked at my list the other day and it is no where near where I thought I would be.
