It is such a feeling of accomplishment to tick off finishing pair #1 for Box O Sox KAL 2018. A bonus was using yarn in my stash and completely a pattern that I admired and coveted for many years. Continue reading “Finished Friday”
Since visually, other than one completed Crusoe, my knitting progress looked very similar to last week. I thought that today I would share my knitting plans for the future…goal knits and what I have in the works for February. Continue reading “Plans for a Hugs, Kisses and an Olympic Trip”
Back on Labor Day, I decided to take the bull by the horns and enact #GYST (Get Your S$@t Together) and stop the vicious cycle of almost completing goals on my to-do list that just didn’t quite make it to being accomplished. Continue reading “#GYST Redux”
Finally! A finished knitted object and it only took the ride to and from Sarasota to A Good Yarn to make it happen. It’s The Prophet’s second Lightning Flame Hot Rod hat. Unfortunately, the first one (after of course saying too many times to count not to wash it in the washing machine and dry in the dryer) went through the washer and dryer and shrunk and felted. So knitted version 2 with superwash…combo of Cascade 220 Superwash and Cascade Pacific. Continue reading “Finito Friday”
It has been a nice and leisurely weekend. With the Prophet in for part of the long weekend, we trekked over to Pinellas to visit mom, have lunch, and go to the movies. Somehow everyone agreed to my choice: “The Hitman’s Bodyguard.” Lots of profanity and violence, which ironically, only my DH was uncomfortable. Big fan of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson…so truly how can you go wrong? Entertaining and some high octane chase scenes. It is what it is and nothing more…just the right choice for an end-of-summer movie.
It was down to the wire last night, but I did manage to finish my “Free Your Fade” Shawl for Camp Loopy as well as my third project for PalKal 2017. However, it isn’t blocked yet especially since I wanted to wear to work today. Yes, a wool scarf in Friday sounds a little bit insane but it is like a meat locker in my office, and it works perfectly with jeans for Casual Friday.
