Hi! Welcome! Pull up a chair, grab a beverage, kick your feet up, put on your favorite music and just enjoy the next 5 minutes reading the happenings of this left handed crafter.
Let's talk crafting first. There are not any finishes this week. Unless you consider turning a heel on a sock a finish LOL.
Yup, the heels are turned and I have started on doing the pattern all the way around the sock now. The FKL heel was done as I never have a hole when I use this heel. Hubby also thinks it is one of the best fitting heels.
Do you remember this?
My "It really Fits" cardigan. I pulled it out last night and did a few rows on the sleeve. I was getting bored with the sock and knew better than to cast on anything else right now. Plus, this sweater is nice and warm on my lap.
That is all the actual knitting I worked on this week. I did get a couple of acquisitions though.
My first ever shawl pin. I wanted something very simple and Signature Needles was having a 25% off sale. How could I pass this up. I have a horrible time keeping my shawls on when I do my wrapping of them. This will save me from messing with them all the time now.
Then, I got my belated Christmas present.
I completed my Signature circular needles when they had them on sale. I am missing 1 circular still. It is not a size I use too often so will just wait until they go on sale again.
In other crafting news...................I am officially registered for the Dallas Fort Worth Fiber Fest in April of this year. I have my hotel reservations, my airline reservations and I was able to book 1 class and am on a wait list for several others. I am really looking forward to the vendor market. It makes me all tingly to think of all the fiber and wares that will be there to look at and touch. Not to mention being able to knit and crochet to my hearts content all day and night with other like minded people. While I am there I will also be spending time with my son and his family that lives there. This is a dream trip for me. Hubby will be home taking care of the dogs and holding down the fort for the 10 days I will be away.
In my 'normal' life I have this little cutie to show you.
I was getting ready to attend Grandparent's Day at our local Grand Daughter's school. He knew I was going somewhere and was trying to look super sad about me leaving him. I left anyway LOL.
Our Grand Dog came over the other day. He has not learned how to pick up his toys after he plays with them. Almost reminds me of when the kids were little and had their toys all over the living room. Kind of miss those days..............NOT!
If you have been reading my blog this week, you know the past few weeks have been a bit rough and the coming weeks will continue to be that way. (off and on, that is) So......tonight, I was getting ready to write in my journal and as I picked it up, the front cover screamed at me.
RIGHT? So that is just what I did. Everyone always says to 'Let go and Let God". My problem is.........after I do that, I worry He might need some, help so I keep taking it back. Must have something to do with my type A personality. Or as my hubby says, my type AAA personality. LOL
Today I am working on rearranging my craft room. (Thanks Liz for that idea) I have two large pieces of furniture that need to exchange places. It will actually give me more walking area in there. It will also give me the excuse to go through some drawers and cubicles and get rid of things I am not using and probably will never use. (Thanks Becki) I still have some of the crafts from my mom. (needlepoint) I have never done needlepoint and never will. My hands will not allow that fine of work. No one else in the family does needlepoint either. It is things like that, that I need to realize, holding on to it is not going to bring her back or help ease the pain of loosing her. So POOF..........it is going to leave the house.
After the craft room furniture is rearranged, I will just hang out with hubby watching the football play offs. (he will watch and I will knit and listen to an audio book) Our food today is going to be super easy.........bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers, potato skins, and mozzarella sticks all cooked in the air fryer. We call this pub food. We only do it during football Sunday's, but not every one of those. It gives me a little break from cooking a big meal and we both enjoy having a 'junk' food day once in a while.
May your day be filled with laughter and love.
Until Next Time................Happy Crafting!!!!
