Two Down, One to Go

I’ve been busy knitting the past few days and managed to finish the second kitchen hand towel in the set of three. It’s easy to lose track of the pattern if I don’t pay attention and more than once I’ve gotten engrossed in something on TV and had to backtrack and correct my mistake. I usually catch it pretty quickly when I notice that the pattern isn’t right, normally in the row I’m working on.

I started the third towel and will work on that until bedtime. I’ve got Foyle’s War streaming on Acorn via Roku. It’s been awhile since I watched it and we both really enjoy it. I’m watching the “Bad Blood” episode at the moment. There’s a murder and a strange illness in the area that is keeping Foyle busy and an American GI has asked Samantha to marry him.

I’ve been reading in the evenings before I turn out the light and go to sleep and I’m almost half-way through “St. Peter’s Fair.” The Brother Cadfael Chronicles are always entertaining and I never grow tired of re-reading them.

The yard is back under control once again and looks so nice. The guys have been so busy the past couple of weeks and I hope they get some breathing time soon. We’ve had quite a bit of rain and the grass is growing very quickly. When Juan called to tell us they would be out as soon as they could make it he sounded so tired. His crew are such hard workers and do a very good job. We’ve had them clean out the gutters and trim some trees and brush along the fence back when Brad was recovering from shoulder surgery. I’m glad I haven’t mentioned digging new flower beds yet since they are so busy. Fall would be better for that.

I’m caught up on Bongino’s podcast for the week and I always enjoy his Friday show with Joe’s “Iiiits Friiidaaay!” at the beginning of the show and then the ending, “Good DAY sir!” It’s become a ritual that I enjoy very much. And speaking of Friday. Don’t forget…

Have a blessed Friday evening ya’ll.

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.
