Another Finished Project

I finished the knitted potholder and it measures 8″ along each side. I just took it out of the washer and laid it out to dry. I’ll remeasure after it’s dry.

I’m happy with the size of it so far and will make another one to go with it after I finish the crocheted version I’m still working on at the moment. I’ll work on it a little longer this evening and then switch to something that is easier on my hands. I’ve still got a pair of socks that needs to have the ribbing finished.

I also need to finish a project that’s been on the floor inkle loom for longer than I care to remember.

This was planned with lanyards in mind and I have the hardware to make them.

I stayed home today and Brad ran errands and got groceries for our daughter to save her a trip to Walmart while she’s in the middle of household chores. She and David and the kids, dogs and livestock are all doing great. Brad is doing well. The badly bruised thumb is healing and he avoided a trip to the doctor for it. I’m battling allergies, but hey! It’s Texas! We have allergy season year round. And, of course, my biggest allergen is house dust which is impossible to escape! Such is life. We just get on with it.

The evening news is on which means I need to decide what to do for dinner, but the fridge is full of food so it shouldn’t take very long to make up our minds what we want to eat and try to find something to watch on TV this evening. Or, we may sit and read for a bit.

Have a wonderful Friday evening, ya’ll. And remember! It’s RED Friday! Remember Everyone Deployed!

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.
