YOP WEEK 52
Hello everyone. I hope your day is wonderful. We have plenty of sunshine here and the temps are just barely over 100. So, it is very pleasant outside and a perfect day to sit in the shade and enjoy a little crafting time. Even better if you are able to dip your feet into a pool.
This is the last week I will be posting items I am working on. Happily, I have some FO's to show.
Those pesky socks are completed! They have already been worn by hubby and he really likes them. Now he is looking for more of these to be in his sock drawer. I informed him, his sock drawer needed to be culled out. If he wants handmade socks then the store bought need to find a new home!
Once the socks were done I needed a palette cleanser.
I whipped out three dishcloths. These is all the dishcloths I made this month too. What a wonderful little break from knitting that takes concentration.
I finally got around to blocking my Summer Flies shawl.
It has been waiting to be blocked since March! (PSST, I have a scarf that has been waiting since January) The blocking really makes the knit open up and it becomes very airy and lovely. Do you think I should block that scarf this week? That actually would make a nice and neat ending to YOP 8. Hmmmmmm......it might happen.
That concludes my crafting week. Next week will be my wrap up of what was accomplished over the last 52 weeks. That post is always fun for me to do. My favorite post though, is the first one of each year. That clean slate and dreams of accomplishing every item proposed is a thrill to me. Until the new year starts I am just working on a WIP I have had in my stash for a while. Nothing new is being started until the new year begins for me on July 7th. Are you interesting in joining us? You can find the info HERE.
In other news:
This past week I was blessed with picking up our local Grand from her summer school each day. It was so nice to spend some one on one time with her again. It is so hard to do that now that she is in HIGH SCHOOL!!!! We did a small after school activity each day to make it double special for both of us.
Last night we went to Ho'ike to watch out daughter perform in her first hula. She was in three numbers and did quite well. What a great evening! It was extremely entertaining. There was also some wonderful food served. It was quite a drive for us to attend but well worth the 45 mile trip!
Today, we are kicking back and enjoying some down time. We will be having dinner with some friends tonight. Next week is jammed packed with appointments and errands. If you think being retired frees up your time, you are wrong! It just means you are doing all those things you put off while working away from home.
Until Next Time............Happy Crafting!!!!
