Geez, I’m totally behind on everything! The laundry, dishes, blogging, reading blogs, etc, etc. The good news is that KT had a good time with the visiting family. I’ve uploaded a sampling of pictures in my photo album. Here’s how the weekend brokedown: saturday, I worked at the vet clinic, spent the afternoon cleaning and the IL’s got in late; sunday we drove through downtown Minneapolis & St Paul and went to a local park; monday we went to the MegaMall and DH got quite a few outfits for work and I got new shoes & the new Harlot book and we had dinner at a unique pizza place; tuesday we went out to lunch for DH’s birthday and the IL’s made their way home. I was hoping they would have stayed until wednesday so they could watch KT while I went to SnB, but alas, they all had to work. And speaking of Stitch ‘n Bitch, here’s what was happening:
Anne had made some progress on her sweater
Kelle was knitting a peach doily and showed us the progress she had made on her Forest Path Stole
Meleah was sewing up the blue raglan baby sweater
All very fun! I was working on my sherbert swirl socks & Connie told me that I have smaller feet than her daughters…yes, she was including her 11 year old. I was also swatching for a toddler sized Blackberry. I’m not a fan of the horseshoe cable but I do like the wheat-ear cable. I know, I know, they are almost identical, but I’m picky. I’ve been trying to draw out on knitter’s graph paper what I want it to look like so I won’t have the same problem that I’ve had in the past (*cough* baby *cough* sweater *cough*) Excuse me!
So I know the 1st was "flash your stash" day, but I did not flash. Besides, you’ve all seen my stash
Not much has changed (click on pic for a larger view & labels). Besides, how could I top Amy, Kelle, Grumperina or Wendy (she was my favorite, by the way)?
Now on to Project Spectrum! I have indeed be working with yellow; 2 pairs of yellow socks to be exact! Both Artyarn’s Supermerino, although one was a transition since it is both yellow and pink. I’m almost done with the first pair I started on (they were the autumny gold with red, green & brown) so I’d like to finish those first. We shall see!
On a sadder note, Meleah‘s grandfather died this past week and yesterday was the funeral. If you could just think of her or say a little prayer, I think she’d greatly appreciate it
Well I think that’s long enough for now. This is why I hate to go so long between posts, it’s like I have to write a really long one to catch up or something Oh well! Have a great day!!
