Howdy! It feels good to be back home sitting in my chair writing on my blog with Enrique curled up next to me snoring away. Routines are very comforting and hubby and I are happy to be back to ours.
Knitting has been happening the past few days. Letting yarn slip through my fingers and watching things form is a wonderful thing. I have 1/2 a finish today..................
This is a worsted weight Rose City Roller sock. Never have I made a sock from worsted weight yarn. It goes super fast! I made this one in 2 days. The mate to it will be cast on later today. They are going to Texas and being gifted to my Sister in law's mom, who is on hospice. They will be bed socks to help keep her feet warm. This is leftover yarn from my Roe Cardigan. I wanted to get these done before cold weather hit them.
I also worked on my fingering weight RCR socks...................................
The heel is completed and now it is gusset time and then the everlasting foot knitting. I am so happy I chose this self patterning yarn. It is Hobby Lobby's Cozy Toes yarn in the colorway "All for Alabaster".
That is all for knitting this week. I still need to sew up the side seam of my Roe Cardigan. Maybe later this week, I will get to it. Right now I am enjoy some semi mindless knitting and crocheting.
Hubby and I returned home last Wednesday. We did not expect to be gone as long as we were. But taking care of final arrangements and coordinating with the other siblings took longer than we expected. Now we wait until January for our final goodbyes and a bit more closure.
After unpacking and getting things put away, I made out two weeks of menus and a grocery list of what would be needed. We decided to go to our new super huge grocery store to see if we could find some of the more 'unusual' things on our list. Success! Our pantry is now stocked as is our fridge. It only took 3 hours and two stores to complete the list.
Today I am making Italian sub rolls to eat with our kielbasa links. It is a new to me recipe so hopefully it turns out. I am trying very hard, not to purchase store bread anymore. My larder is stocked with all sorts of flours that are begging for me to use them. The family has also asked me to make the bread for Thanksgiving this week. I will make a loaf of sourdough as well as some dinner rolls. My house is going to smell so good. Most of the bread recipes I use come from the King Arthur website.
I want to thank all of you, again, for the condolence messages you left. You are all very kind. Fiber folk are the best!
Until Next Time............................Happy Crafting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
