One More Stripe…

Not the best photo, there is a bit of a shadow along the needle cable but I’ll get a better photo when I have the sweater divided for the sleeves.

I tried the sweater on when I finished the medium purple band but it wasn’t quite long enough to be ready to separate for the sleeves so I grabbed a darker purple for another stripe. Just to be sure of the length to the underarm I slipped the sweater over a long sleeve tee shirt, on the hanger, and I could see better how far I had to go. So, now there are well over 300 stitches on the 60″ needle and it’s taking a good bit longer to knit one round but it will be worth it.

I have errands to run today and more knitting to do. I may hang out at the coffee shop for a bit today and work on my sweater while I enjoy some great coffee. At some point I need to get back to finishing the ribbing on several pairs of socks. I wear my hand-knit socks year round and it will be nice to have a few more new pairs to choose from.

The weather has warmed up and was near 70° yesterday and we should get back to the low 70’s today along with a slight chance of rain showers with thunderstorms on Wednesday so today will be good for running errands.

I found a bottle of liquid magnesium supplement drops in my bathroom cupboard that I should have already been taking after finishing my detox and took the first dose night before last before bedtime. I slept better. I’m going to be sure to take it before bedtime from now on. My homeopath recommended it and I’m also waiting on a bottle of Vitamin D to come in the mail from Humana. I know I don’t get enough sunshine most days and my Vit D was very low back in the summer. We’ll see what the doc says later this morning about that.

Guess I had better get moving. Places to go. Things to do. Have a blessed Tuesday, ya’ll.

Btw, I’m on Gab: Patricia Steel Blankenship @TheNerdyYarnLady and MeWe: Patricia Steel Blankenship.

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.
