Joe is having his right hip replaced tomorrow.
We have been waiting a long time, I'm so glad
his pain, at least from the hip, will be gone.
I think I will be visiting for three to four
So I spent some time this weekend getting
my knitting to a certain point so it was easy to
The second sock only has 1 more repeat then I
can decrease for the toe. I would love to get this
done. It is an enjoyable knit, and I don't have
second sock symdrome.
Last week I showed you the cool color socks I am
making for mom. Got the heel turned, with German
Short row heel, and I got scared that there was not enough
yarn for both socks....so I ripped back to leg, and put
in a nice bright blue regular heel. Onward!
The Buffalo check hat I made last week is way
too small. I am going to put that hat in the
gift drawer, and start over. I think I know what
happened. I carried floats every three stitches, making
it tight, and I need to go up a needle size since I am
a tight knitter. I am also going to make the brim a little
longer than the pattern suggests.
I have a little start on 2nd one which will be great
waiting room knitting.
I really didn't do much knitting this week...just
got these projects to a point where I can pick up and
put down a lot.
I want to work on my sweater, maybe tonight.
Ruth sent this shawl pic this morning, she is probably
done with it by now. She is having thumb surgery
on Tuesday so no knitting pics from her for a couple
with my computer, I can't receive her emails today!
I will update if it ever comes here....
If not, we will get a nice big update from
her next week.
Have a great, knitful week dear blog readers,
(well, Ruth will have to read about knitting).....
