Here is a place where you can enjoy listening (reading) about all my adventures as a lefty in a righty world. It is not easy to do this at times but I have managed to do it for over 70 years. Crafting is probably the hardest thing to do as a lefty since all directions are printed for righties. I have managed to adjust and will be more than happy to share my crafts with you thru pictures and writings. Enjoy!
I forgot how quickly worsted knits up. I also forgot how quickly my attention moves from one item to another.
Case in point:
Here is all I have done on the right side of the cardigan. Seeing I finished the back on Wednesday, you would think I would have more of this side done. Nope. I only started this section late last night. And, the only reason I started this late last night is because my conscious was screaming at me to complete a project within a decent time frame. The last cardigan took me over a year to complete!
I did not work on the giant granny square blanket at all this week. But, I did work on this:
A new pair of Rose City Roller socks. This time they are for ME! I am on the heel flap of the first sock. I started them late Thursday night and am only doing a little bit a day on them. Seeing it is still around 100F here, socks are really not called for yet.
I am still working on a puzzle and will post a photo of it when it is completed. It has been a work in progress for almost 3 weeks now. I try and limit myself to 1 hour a day on it. Otherwise, I would be working on it for HOURS at a time.
In other news.............................................
My new metal pantry came in on Wednesday. We waited to start putting it together until Friday. We got going pretty good when this happened:
This is supposed to be the bottom panel for the pantry.
There is no way this is going to attach to the rest of the pantry. So for now.....................
The parts that have been assembled are laying on our pool table until the new piece comes in. According to the manufacturer, that will be in 7-10 business days. It is just a little frustrating. Good thing I had not emptied out the old pantry yet.
Today I need to make a loaf of bread, do 1 load of laundry, and watch copious amounts of NFL football. Actually, hubby is the big football watcher. I listen and work on my knitting, crocheting, puzzle and read during the 12 hours it is on.
This coming week, I have dog duty again. In fact, I have dog duty for the next 2 weeks. It works our well as hubby is going to a conference the end of this week and next week he and his brother are heading to Las Vegas to visit their mom.
So, what are your plans for the coming week? Anything fun and different? Any new craftiness happening?
Until Next Time..................................Happy Crafting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
