Making Progress On A Couple of Fronts

I finished these last night and I’m wearing them today. Very comfy.

It’s a bit humid here today so we are enjoying being indoors with the A/C running. I haven’t looked to see if we have more rain coming our way or not but it wouldn’t surprise me.

I went in for PT on my neck this morning and Jared has me doing more exercises at home now, once a day. I’ve already regained a lot of mobility from side to side as well as up and down when I move my head and this was only my second visit. And once again I have to ask myself, “Why do I always wait so long before I do something about my aches and pains?” I guess the answer is that I get used to it until it bugs me enough to go see someone. After all, it’s only arthritis. Right? Yeah. I’m a little hard-headed it seems.

I picked up my JoAnn’s yarn order today at the post office. I forgot I had ordered some more purple and orchid yarn. The green and rose will be for washcloths and towels for my kitchen. And I didn’t have any solid purple yarn in my stash of cotton yarn so now I’m well stocked.

I stopped on the way home for Take-Away at the coffee shop so we had Tuna Salad Plates for lunch. The line was a bit long when I first arrived but it was moving along fairly quickly and I did a little ‘drive-thru knitting’ while waiting to place my order…and listening to the Bee Gee’s “How Deep Is Your Love” on Sirius radio. I like the “70’s on 7” channel.

I put a marker at the beginning of the round to keep track of how far I need to go before binding off. I’ve got two inches left and I’ll have another finished pair of socks!

It’s 3:30 now and time to work on my knitting for a bit and do a little reading. I’d like to get another inch done on these socks if possible and I’ve got a load of laundry to do before it’s time for dinner.

Have a blessed Tuesday, 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.
