Only Eighty Rows…

I’m finished with the green yarn and I have eighty rows left of the purple before I need to wind off some of the newly dyed yarn for the border. So far so good and I’m very happy with this project.

It was 102° outside this afternoon but a comfortable 74° in the house. We had the blinds mostly closed and the ceiling fans on so it was nice. Brad went in for breakfast croissants this morning but other than that we’ve stayed in and puttered around the house.

I played a few computer games on I like card games like Solitaire, Gin, and Canasta. I’m TheNerdyYarnLady on Pogo. There is a Daily Crossword that I like and a Sudoku as well. Aside from that and checking in with the ladies in my knitting group on Mewe I’ve spent my time working on the shawl today. I was on my feet a lot yesterday and my ankle was pretty swollen when I took the brace off last night so I’ve kept my feet propped up most of the day.

It’s already 10:00 pm so I won’t get a lot more knitting done on the shawl before bedtime but I can finish the last section of purple tomorrow and wind off a few ounces of yarn for the border.

Brad is taking the older grandsons to church with him in the morning and will probably bring lunch home for the two of us. It’s supposed to be as hot tomorrow as it was today so I’ll be staying indoors. I don’t do well in the heat and I don’t need to be down with a headache.

It’s time for a hot shower and another chapter of “Dead Man’s Ransom” before bed. Have a blessed Saturday night, 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.
