YOP WEEK 16 & DAY 18
Hello again. Another week has passed and it was not my usual week. Hubby and I took off on Monday for a little holiday in Las Vegas. We spent time with his mom as well as some of his siblings and also some very special friends. It was a lovely little get away and has lifted both of our spirits tremendously. Since we were on the move so much, I did not have a lot of time to knit. Yet, I do have a finish to show.
Sock #1 was completed during our little holiday. It is just a plain vanilla sock with an eye of partridge heel.
After we returned home on Friday, I started the second sock. The cuff is is almost completed. This yarn is a bit splitty, so I do need to keep an eye on it to make sure I am grabbing all strands when working with it. Otherwise, I really like this yarn. It is super soft and very squishy. The fiber content is: 80% Superwash Fine Highland Wool/ 20% Polymide. Before you think the highland wool is from Scotland, I will let you know it is actually from Peru. It is not an expensive yarn either. Here is the link to look at it. It is on Close out, so if interested in obtaining any, now is the time.
And now...............for the next segment of my post for today.
I won't even tell you what years these magazines were from. I will tell you, none of these are from the last 5 years. Amazing what you find when going through book shelves.
Books that have been read and will not be re-read are items that needed to leave. I am normally pretty good about recycling my books but, somehow these few never made their way out of the house. Although, the Debbie Macomber book is her newest released paperback (2020) and I just finished it about a month ago.
This coming week is going to be crazy. Our son is once again traveling for business. I have dog and teen duty. The teen is back in school 4 days a week now so, I will be doing lots of running for the next 5 days. I sat down with our son and his wife last night and we worked out the schedule for the next week. Let's just say........................I won't be doing much stuff around my house next week. But...................there will be plenty of time for me to work on hubby's second sock! That means, I need to spend some time today decluttering more stuff. I also need to make out menus that will be easy for hubby as there will be 2 days I won't be home until well past dinner time. Good thing I completed all the laundry yesterday.
Today, hubby and I are celebrating 45 years of marriage. We met on a date, set up by my ex-sister in law. Four months later we were married. It has been a wild and crazy ride. We have moved households 15 times and lived in 4 different states. We have been blessed with 4 children, 8 grand children and 1 great grand child. It has not always been sunshine and roses, but those difficult times are what has brought us all closer together and made us a stronger family unit. And yes, we are still in love. Even more so now than the day we married.
Until Next Time...............................Happy Crafting & Stay Well!!!!!!!!
