Making Monday


A pair of socks closer to the heel now. Finishing with 2by2 ribbed cuff.
Another charity hat.

My NaNoWriMo book, ‘Crystal’, is nearly caught up to date. I’m supposed to be at 36,674 words. I have 36,087 so I’m going to random word prompt until I can meet the quota.

How are all of you? Making things? Words?

Making Monday


I’ve been working on the drawings but I’m not done yet. And I know more story but both can wait until tomorrow.

Meanwhile, two more socks are toed.

And I cut my hair, closer to the length of my Bitmoji.

Making Monday


Another hat on the Flexee fine-gauge loom. This yarn is softer, but I still have a bit of the mohair to use up so I’m adding pinkish basket weave band above the brim.

And another pair of socks nearly finished with gifted yarn. I’m including the label of the yarn.

I may or may not finish my Inktober for the day.

It has been a busy day. We’re hitting 17 degrees tonight. We might have had flurries that didn’t stick last night. So we were too cold to be in the living room today.

All that sent me into packing up the summer shorts and looking for warmer clothes and my electric lap blanket for the living room. I didn’t finish that but I found enough to get through tomorrow. Snow is expected Wednesday. I forgot to take a picture of our nearly naked trees and leaf-padded driveway. Hopefully, the wild winds today didn’t get rid of all the leaves. Winter is rearing it’s head before Halloween. Isn’t that against the law?

Making Monday


As I sit here in the parking lot awaiting my husband’s colonoscopy to be done, I have lots to keep myself occupied.

There’s a bluish hat starting. Or the second red sock to reach 8 inches like its left-at-home mate. Or should I shut the window and play a tune?

While knitting I plan to listen on Libby to this:

I’m never bored!

What are you making?

Making Monday


I’m nearly finished with the fold-up brim of another hat on the KB Flexee fine-gauge loom.

I wanted to do a longer blog but I still need to play recorders before bed.

I hope you all had a good, thought-filled Labor Day. The seeming end of summer. Usually, I get to this point kicking and screaming. I usually love summer the most. But this year I can’t wait for rain and snow and clean air.

Making Monday


Scrappy socks are nearly finished. Most of the pair are made of the Mani-Pedi crew color yarn. The toes and heels are scraps from the previous pair I made. I’m loving how they are working up.

We lived through the triple digit hot Sunday. Today was sort of hot but not nearly as bad. Tomorrow is supposed to be 72. I might wear jeans and T-shirt instead of shorts and tank-top what a relief! I might take a nice walk as air quality is also supposed to be good for a change.


Making music. My housemates and neighbors may disagree.

My free classes ended last Thursday. It was fun having a Zoom class making progress through elementary music.

I am a music major so I can read music,  no problem.  Well, except for the eyes that have problems seeing. But recorder music is only one line. As opposed to four or more in piano music. So recorder is easier.

Without the black and white keys I have had to learn finger positions. Seems easy enough. Except fingers, my fingers are short and have a hard time reaching.

Maintaining breath while hitting the notes and trying to keep time present challenges.

Any of you who had to take recorder classes in school might remember the screeching noises of the soprano recorder.

So I am attempting to learn the alto, too. I love it’s rich smooth sounds. But my hands hurt after more than few minutes playing.

All the music time cuts my knitting time. So the socks are just two inches from being done. Maybe this week they’ll be complete.

What are you making?


Adding the cuffs.

So today was a busy one.

I got up way later that I hoped. Still it wasn’t too hot so Kali and I walked our mile. She was so slow. I don’t know what was up. She usually loves her walks. So it was way slower than usual. My app didn’t record it. I listened to a podcast that my daughter introduced me to. It kept my mind busy so the walk was painless.

My friends and I have challenged each other to watch all of Marvel Universe in timeline order. My husband has joined. We are now on Ironman 3. I think this is my favorite of the Ironmen. By the way, you can find this order on Disney +.

I seem more tired since getting back. I had to take a nap. I usually do well on a 20 minuter. But I went far over. I was 1/2 hour late for my recorder class.

Luckily,  I have a few lessons on my own before finding the class so it was review. I’m sure my advance will fade in the next two lessons. It was fun to be in a class with second graders to folks my age. I think that is the best kind of class. Be on the level of learning not peer groups.

Within a 1/2 hour of the end of recorder class was my writers group. I love the people in that group. Such a creative bunch. There are published authors to challenge all of us.

Now back to Ironman.

Making Monday


I finally have the half-fingered convertible gloves off the loom and ready to sew up. I need excellent light and the best glasses to do the sewing. These will go to the charity as this was donated yarn.

 

I found in my stash a huge ball of multi-colored yarn.

There’s got to be a couple hats and pairs of socks here. So here’s the hat is nearly half-finished

.

So with that holiday looming, I’ve got to be looming, even if the gifts get there late. Love is in the loom!

Making it Monday


There is still a lot of snow on the ground. Flurries and rain made me wonder how the Carpenter’s song would go if they could sing it today. The snow was melting at one point. While enjoying a video chat with friends I took this one through the front picture window.

A few minutes ago I heard something hitting the window. I didn’t know if it was rain or snow. I went to the storm door and saw drops on the window. I reached out to touch the droplets. They were frozen. It makes the window look like bathroom glass. Kind of cool. We are expecting about four inches of snow tonight. Makes me want to pull out the Christmas lights and start singing carols!

So what am I making? More socks! I am nearly finished with my daughter’s first sock. I just need to bind off. I’ll probably do that tomorrow. It’s the one on the right. The other one is at the point of the heel. The hardest part of the sock is the ribbing. I am doing this part with four purls, four true-knit stitches. The rest of the sock is the flat knit-stitch.

As you can see I am making these on the KB His and Hers looms. I now have two sets of the same size so I can keep the pair of sock as close to the same size as possible.

And here are the boyfriend’s socks started on the His looms. I am going to take the stitches off the bigger purple loom, upper left, and put them on the empty smaller one. These two looms have the same amount of pegs. I like the smaller set better as they are more comfortable for my hands.

 

Oh, I worked on the soft hat, too.

This may be close to being done.

I have other projects but my hands seem most attracted to these WIPs.
