I'm smooshing a post in mid-week. I was exhausted
last Sunday... and this Sunday no blog update since we
will be away.
I finished up mom's 1st sock. These socks take forever,
knit knit knit and it seems like no progress is made.
Joe loves them..he said "those are beautiful, who are they for".
The peach marker indicates where I started the afterthought
heel, and the green on indicates where I started increasing.
Reminder I cast on 72, then increase to 80 to fit
so switched to a 1.25 needle. Then I used a 0 for the
afterthought heel, because that was what I had.
I like the way it turned out. I'm not a huge fan of
knitting the afterthought heel, but I like how it looks.
Elizabeth's Simple Summer Shoulder Poncho.
I may reblock now that it's sewn together.
I'm horrible at selfies, but here it is
Maybe I'll concentrate on that while we are
gone this weekend. I get a lot of knitting time in.
I'm also taking the shawl I'm making with koolaid yarn.

last Sunday...she is taking a little break from that

Joe, who never throws anything out, decided my flowers
needed to be repotted. So he put them in a kitty litter
container (he uses them for everything after he thoroughly
washes them.) the green pots are what they were in...
totally root bound.
a party on Sunday. All of a sudden it hit me...
I could spray paint it.
So I covered the flowers with a plastic bag
We had a family party for Joey's 30th bday on Sunday. OMG
was I tired. I'm not sure but this party was so much harder than
most. Tiffany helped a lot, and of course Joe, and even Mom came
early to help.
Joe's family came because it was a special birthday.
They love coming here.
a 30 for me. It was so windy, we could not keep any candles
lit..Darn, that would have made a great picture
