Finished Knitting Projects

I finally cast off the blue and brown Stroll socks and put them in to soak with the red Malabrigo socks. They are on the wire blockers and will soon be dry.

I’ve picked up the Monkey socks to finish the cuffs and realized I’ve been knitting one round less than the pattern calls for but it doesn’t really matter and I’m not going to worry about it now. It’s one plain round in stocking stitch.

Brad will pick up our grand-daughter Rachel this morning and run a couple of errands for me on their way out here. She will get to spend most of the day with us before she is due back at the farm for chores. I’m sure we will find something to do to occupy ourselves.

I’ve set out ingredients for my Tuna Casserole for our dinner. The three of us are planning to eat lunch out today for a treat and my first choice is Culver’s. We’ve eaten there once before and they have good food and service. They are located across the parking lot from one of our local CJ’s Coffee Cafe locations. We usually get take-away to eat at home and it would be nice to sit somewhere nice and enjoy a meal out.

We’ve had enough rain lately for the grass to start to green up again. Today we may have some showers like yesterday, but probably not the downpour we had on Sunday. Wednesday and Thursday will most likely bring more storms.

There is still some bare ground showing behind the yuccas but there is more green grass under the trees than there was last week.

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.
