Lots of Cuffs to Knit

The last pair of socks now has finished heels and is ready for cuffs and I am trying very hard not to cast on for another pair of socks with some yarn I love…

Exploding TARDIS colorway, two skeins. One wound and divided for socks.

Now I can get on with the easy K2, P2 ribbing on three pairs of socks and more of the Monkey Sock pattern on the cuffs of the fourth pair of socks. I still have Gabriel’s Summer Blanket to work on and my Prayer Shawl as well but getting to the point of cuffs on four pairs of socks is nice.

On a side note: I was watching a televised Mass from St. Agnes Catholic Church in NY state on the Catholic Faith channel via Roku on Sunday morning. I noticed a man who went up to receive the Eucharist had something around his neck but couldn’t tell what it was from the angle of the camera until he turned to go back to his pew. He was wearing a full length Doctor Who Scarf!

Sarah was exited when I told her about it and informed me she needed a Doctor Who Scarf. Then I pulled out one of the storage baskets on the bottom shelf of the entertainment center and showed her the 4th Doctor’s Scarf that I had started several years ago. Her face lit up. I really need to work on that project, too.

This is one of two shelving units that sit end to end with the TV, cable box, Roku box and bluray player on top. Both shelves on the other section are filled with DVD’s. I use the bottom shelf of this unit for my project bags in the baskets.

Sarah and I enjoyed watching some live stream video on UKTV. Two of my favorite shows were airing: “Antiques Road Trip” and “Something for Nothing”. We also watched OAN news channel for awhile. All of this is possible because of our Roku and high speed cable internet. We don’t watch MSM anymore. Brad and I will watch our local evening news but we switch off when the CBS news comes on. Can’t trust the sources on MSM anymore. The local news is also available for replay via streaming video on our Roku if we happen to miss the live broadcast in the evening or at 10:00 pm.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
