YOP LIST 2023-2024

Sunday, December 5, 2021



Hi there.  Glad you could stop by again today.  This has been a very busy week for this lady.  There has been baking, decorating and knitting happening all week.    I wrote about the baking and decorating here.  But, let's take a look at the knitting.

I pulled my RCR socks out of hibernation last night.

I got a few more rows completed in the gusset.  They are perfect for watching the Hallmark Christmas movies.

I also worked on my Vixynn sweater.

Picking up the stitches from the cast on edge, to make the front of the sweater, was not as hard as I thought it was going to be.  I kind of like the ridge it created too.  At least I will know where the top of my shoulder is.

Once the front is as long as the back, I will connect the two parts and start working in the round.  I am really enjoying working with this yarn.  Now, my plan is to have this finished in the next month.  Not sure if that will happen, but that is my dream.  I would love to wear this for my MIL's interment in January.

That is all the knitting I did this week.  Most of that was done on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  That is when my vertigo came back and made it quite hard for me to continue baking and decorating.  

The decorating is 3/4 done inside and 100% completed outside.  So that is not too bad.  The baking is 1/2 done and what is left is not too complicated.  But, until I can bend over without the room spinning, it will need to be put on hold.  (sigh)

Our weather is just now starting to get 'cold'. (For us)  We have been sitting in the 80's each afternoon.  This coming week will see us in the 70's and even a couple days in the 60's.  Thankfully the nights are down in the 50's an 40's so I open windows and doors and let all that cool air rush in.  Keeps the house pleasant for the entire day then.  We might get winter after all.

That is all for me today.  The rest of the day will be spent knitting and planning our menus.  Hubby will get to do the grocery shopping for us this time.  (I am not allowed to drive.  Stupid vertigo)  He is a very good shopper too.  He did it for many years after he retired and I continued to work.  

What are your plans for the day/week?

Until Next Time..................................Happy Crafting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. How awful that the vertigo is back! I sure hope you are able to find the cause. I've only had it for brief periods but it was no fun. Sounds like a fantastic week. I think cookie baking is in this week's future. The condo has a cookie exchange that I would enjoy participating in, even if cookies are not in my diet. One can't hurt right?!!

  2. Sorry to hear about the return of your vertigo, so frustrating for you I’m sure. Hope this week is calmer and no dizziness

  3. I’m so sorry to hear about your vertigo! Hopefully it calms down soon.

  4. ugh to the dizziness! My dad is experiencing it as well. So glad you are almost done with the decorating and the knitting as always looks beautiful.

  5. So sorry about your vertigo! I had it once from an ear infection...it's no fun! Thank goodness you have your husband and the fact that you still have more done than me! LOL! The sweater is really looking good and at the rate you're going I bet you will finish it in time. The socks are so cute and look like snowflakes in the design,cute for Winter. I hope you feel better this week so you can get all your plans done. Take care!

  6. I hope you feel better soon, and yay for hubby doing the shopping! I like the way the yarn is patterning on your RCR socks. I always get nervous about picking up stitches, but it usually works out well in the end. Yours looks great.


Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know you were here by leaving me a comment or a question. Even a quick hello makes my day and lets me know I am not all alone here.
