Sock Sunday


Finally finished the slippers. Pretty proud of these leftover bits. The perfect way to finish a beautiful Sunday.

I don’t know if I’ll get any editing done. I did take my walk. Kali is out cold on the sofa. Guess I wore her out.

Now onto Duolingo and early to bed.

Ta Da Tuesday


These slipper socks should be finished tomorrow sometime. It was fun playing with the leftover bits of yarn. Notes: KB fine-gauge Flexee loom, 40 pegs each. Kitchener cast-on . German short-rows for toe and heel. Cuffs will be 2×2 knit, purl ribbing.

Far From Finished Friday


As I look around I have so many projects and all of them far from finished. The items I am most drawn to is a mixed up crazy pair of slipper socks. I have finished the toe and plan to match the heels and possibly the cuff in the pink. The rest will be stray yarn around here. I think they will be fun warmth for the charity. And it uses up the leftovers.

Since I want to get busy and see how I like the new color combo before fading away to bed, I’ll just post the picture and scram. Happy Friday everyone!

Sunday Funday


It has been a fantastic Sunday. I know to most of you it sounds boring. But I did my usual Zoom service, CBS Sunday Morning, and then for most of the day I watch some Galaxycon Live. Then The Walking Dead and Talking Dead. The whole time I am just knitting. I was nearly finished with the brim of a hat but made a mistake and had to frog. So now I am trying out a different stitch for the brim.

Sounds like my usual Sunday, doesn’t it? It was sunny but that breeze is still cold. 

Best of all I got to talk to my son! He had some pretty exciting news that I don’t know if I can share. But regardless of the news, I was just happy to hear from him. I can’t wait until we can all see each other again! By the way, we get out vaccines tomorrow, all in my house. So by tomorrow night at this time shot one will be checked off the list. Then in a month we get our second. Yeah, Moderna.


Yikes! It’s getting late!

My tada isn’t yet another sock.

In fact, I don’t know how to show this in picture form.

I spent most of the day working on my NaNo novel from November. Camp NaNo is coming up, and I either want to write more on this story or get another outlined to write. I mostly edited and got q few scenes checked. I can see there are some big picture things to get right, but I have a hard time if the grammar and spelling are messed up. So I clean the smaller messes to see the big picture. Does that make any sense? The trees are getting in the way of the forest! So If I can get most of the trees out of the way within a week, I will rearrange the forest. That will help me know where to go next.

Meanwhile, I found a station on Pandora called Classical study time or some such that plays politely in the background. Although I get irritated when I hear Claire De Lune, Moonlight Sonata, and Für Elise played repeatedly. I like them all, just need to hear other things. And since they used to be in my piano repertory, I get distracted and want to play the piano. Music for a background is always more distracting than television. Good old reruns of favorite shows can go on for hours without my getting involved. Do other musicians or music majors have this problem?

I did start a mohair hat. It is a soft pinkish-orange. When I finished the socks, I couldn’t leave the Flexee looms sitting there without something on them—another obsession.

A Snowy Made It Monday


I woke up to this beautiful scene. Too early and cold to step outside, I took it from my recliner, looking out the front window.

Just to give a better view, I cropped it bigger to this:

It is all melted. Crazy pre-summer. Here in the desert, it is hot or cold. Barely ever in between as most people who experience spring would enjoy. And that means it’s colder, 21 degrees right now. Yes, I am under a blanket with all heaters on as I finish my ‘spring socks’ I have about 6 rows to make the cuff, but I will be past midnight when I finish. So come back if you happen to see the picture after the midnight posting time.

12:43 AM [edit] Yay! Done!

I’m nearly finished with a pair of reversed socks. The combo is the opposite of the pair I finished a few days ago.

I just need to finish the cuffs. That’ll be done tomorrow, I’m sure.

This was yarn from China that I bought just before the lockdown. The labels are in Chinese except for the word Bamboo. Four skeins equal four socks. I made them on KB Flexee fine-gauge looms of 40 pegs each. I started with the Kitchener cast-on, German short-row toes, and heels. Most of the rest of the sock was the flat-knit stitch. The cuff is two-by-two knit and purl rib-stitch. Extra stretchy bind-off finishes the sock.

I am nearly finished with one other thing, and I will probably finish before I go to bed, The Walking Dead volume 15. I’ll post my review on Sunday. Notice how I left Saturday open for the usual Stream of Consciousness?

By the way, I love Fridays because I get to Zoom with my BFFs! The exciting part is two of us four have gotten their vaccines (first shots). No, our little community is still waiting for the shots to arrive.

Ta Da Tuesday


I had hoped that I’d have a whole pair. But only one is finished. I hate leaving a loom empty with leftover sock stitch markers. So on the upper left, the next toe of an opposite color combo of the ones nearly finished. Middle is the finished product. Right the sock still needing a few more rows.

Make It Monday


I’m nearly finished with this pair. Because I didn’t have enough of any yarn, I subbed heel and cuff with the green yarn of same type yarn. I’ll probably keep them for me.

I think I’ll make a smaller pair with the green.

Sunday


I finally finished the socks. I’m so sad that the colors don’t look the same even though they are the same yarn. But at least they are the same size.

While knitting, I enjoyed these two films among other programs.

I’ve always been a fan of the Dianna Ross version in Lady Sings the Blues. I was excited to see this one with her son on another side of the great Billy’s life,

Then I was walking through the bedroom, and my husband had on the TV there. I saw Craig Ferguson on and knew I had to watch this:

What a sweet movie with humor and Scotland! I highly recommend this one.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone! And

goodnight kisses
