Sunday mornings are for…

Good Morning everyone!  Hopefully I am getting the hang of wordpress – I have some photo’s to share with you.  I have been up for a few hours, listening to my iPod and watching Sam sleep on the sofa.  Sleep on the sofa, you ask?  Yep, Sam is absolutely, positively, 100% convinced that the “Bogey man” is in our home – he has been sleeping on the sofa for safety!  Me thinks he watches too many scary things!  I am more than a bit irritated with my 15 year old son who suddenly is afraid of his shadow!!  So, I got up bright and early this morning – brewed a pot of coffee and sat down to knit.  As you can see, Penny went to “protect” Sammy as he snoozed away!

On the knitting front – while I did not get to knit night this week – I have found some minutes here and there to knit.  As you can see – sleeve 1 is  moving along nicely on my SKB.  I am working through the sleeve increases –  I have about 8 inches to go to bind off and hope to have that completed today!  Sleeve 2 is waiting anxiously for it’s completion as well.  Then, all I will need to do is frog a bit of the bottom – I need to take one or two decrease sections of the bottom.  It is a bit too large!

On the “large” front – I have lost 20 pounds on Adkins!  I have to frog a few rows from the bottom of this sweater to take out a few increases – decreasing the bottom!  How about that???? 

On the wordpress front – edited at a later time – things are not going wonderfully!!  I figured out the photo’s – but I need to work on clarity and correct size!  And, how this all got underlined is BEYOND me!  LOL, it is all a learning curve!

I cast on another pair of socks this week as well – socks for Ken!  This is about an hour of knitting!  Give me bulky yarn and size 11 needles!  I got the yarn from  Rose and Ruby – it was 30% off, plus I had a $25 dollar off punch card, 3 skeins later – $25 dollars!  Now, there is the deal of the century!  This yarn is sooo soft – 100% merino.  Ken is amazed at my knitting skills!  LOL, socks are a good start for this relationship – from the ground up.  Appropriate, huh?  I hope to have these babies done and on their recipient before the weekend is over!  No more cold feet!

 Have a Happy Memorial Day!

  1. Congratulations on your weight loss! I’m on the other end of the spectrum and need to start losing, too. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Heh, it’s underlined because you’re missing an “” somewhere in your crazy image stuff (it didn’t do that on the sock or Penny). That is great that you have to take out stitches on your sweater! Well, kind of a pain because who wants to pull out a sweater – but the *reason* is fantastic and amazing!

    Out of curiosity…what makes the couch safer than any other place in the house? Must not be any closets in that room.

  3. Dear Friend,
    I hope to see you knitting night this week! I am ditching the tulips socks…..I don’t think I like them. So I’ll figure out something else to do. Have been working on Bruce’s socks out of the Ultra Alpaca. Actually I’m on sock #2

    Why did you change sites? I haven’t figured out blog spot yet for pete’s sake and you have moved already.
