Hello again readers. It is a quiet Sunday morning here at Casa de Noce. Hubby is off to church for a meeting and then to teach a class. We went to Mass yesterday evening to celebrate the feast of the Epiphany (aka: the 3 kings). Since it is so quiet here, I decided this would be the perfect time to update my blog without interruption.
The only item I have worked on all week is hubby's socks.
It is the Scatterby Sock pattern and has been in my 'to do' pile for about 3 or 4 years now. The pattern is a 4 row repeat which makes it not too bad to watch TV and do. I tried on one of the socks the other day to see if they had enough stretch. Oh My Goodness! This pattern is even nicer than the Hermione's Everyday Sock pattern for cushion and comfort. It has such a nice hugginess (that is now a word) to it. This may become my new favorite pattern. Sorry, Harry Potter fans. I need to do another half inch and then the heels will commence. It will be the Fish Kiss Lips heel again. This pattern even calls for that heel.
It was a full week so not as much knitting got done as I would have liked. That is the reason these socks have not gotten heels yet. The best part of the week was getting some decluttering done. I am hoping to donate 1 to 2 hours a day for that activity. My other goal for the coming weeks is to get back to my exercise routine. I was doing so well and then I let myself get sidetracked. There is no reason I can not find 30 minutes a day to either go walking or riding my Teeter.
As soon as I finish this update, I will be heading to the kitchen to make a loaf of bread for dinner tonight. There is also a dishwasher asking to be emptied and an air fryer in need of hand washing. After that, there is a walk in my future and I plan on taking my camera with me so I can get some photos of nature. I figure if I can combine photography with exercise it will be much more interesting and fun.
Tomorrow we will be taking down our Christmas decor. I love putting it up and it feels so bare after it is put away. I jokingly said I was going to leave the tree up and just keep changing the decorations for the season. (ie: red hearts for Valentines, green shamrocks for St Patricks, etc) There was a craft store in Pennsylvania that did this and it was so cute. But alas, I fear, if I leave it up all year it will loose it's appeal after a while. Therefore, back into it's box it will go tomorrow.
What are you up to this coming week? Any fun plans?
Until Next Time.................Happy Crafting!!!!!
