I was going to have the sampler shawl finished today or at least be working on the border. That was until I discovered I had dropped a stitch and found it 6 rows down.......................... aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrruuuuuuuuggggggghhhhhhh ......... I can't just fix it because the decreases go over stitch markers and things are confusing or maybe I am just confused so I sort of threw it in the corner and today I am fixing. I love the Fiddlesticks Yarn I am using it is so nice to work with. You know I could up-date this blog a lot quicker if I could type. That was never one of my courses in school. Thank goodness for spell check.
This is a busy week at least the evenings are busy. Tuesday was Weavers and spinners Meeting, Wednesday was knitting at the pool hall and tonight I think I will go to Knit night at the LYS which is 35-45 minutes away in an other town. DH looked after the DGD on Tuesday night but he lets her get away with too many things. She didn't go to sleep until after 10:00. ............. bed time is 7:30 for this 8 year old but she has Grandpa wrapped around her little finger.
Oh yes I finished the "they are nice Grandma but I wouldn't wear them" socks. They are for me.
I decided to put the information and samples of my re-cycled yarns in a binder in photo pages instead of the little book they were in. I put enough pages in the binder for 30 sweaters figuring that would be more than enough ................WRONG .......
I added more pages and am refusing to count how many sweaters I have purchased for recycling. In my defense I have made 2 shawls and 2 pairs of mittens from my re-cycle stash. I have many shawls planned and a felted bag waiting for the pattern.
You remember the lawn mower that wasn't stolen ............................ well it is now broken, my garden isn't planted but it is well watered because I turn the water on for the strawberry plants and then forget I have done it. I need to find a fool proof way to remember that I have the sprinkler system on and NEED TO TURN IT OFF.
I guess I will have to do laundry today as DH is complaining about no clean shorts..... Fussy man. I also need to vacuum the dog hair that is all over the carpet and the couch. Did I tell you I hate housework.
I mailed out my "Wee Sock Swap" package and my "Swap sock Yarn from your Stash" package. They are going slow airmail ..... 1 week to the States and 2 weeks to the UK. [ I would hate to be a passenger on those flights. ] This is only so if they don't spend time sitting in customs.
Things to come
Friday - need to fix my car that only makes noise when the mechanic isn't looking at it. Apparently it needs a rubber boot on a ball joint to keep the grease in. Now you know as much as I do about it.
Saturday- quilting at Jocelyn's
Sunday -Fathers day and maybe knitting in public with the LYS
Tuesday_ maybe quilting with Jackie
Wednesday - pool hall
Thursday - spinning with Kim and Knit night
Lisa wants me to do some surveys for her as well and they would have to be done before the end of the month. I haven't decided whether I will do them or not but I need to make up my mind today.
Well I guess I should go do laundry, dishes and vacuuming ........... darn, darn, darn
