Finally! A Finished Project!

I cast these off the needle last night. The ends are woven in, they’ve been soaked in Eucalan and are on the sock blockers overnight. I plan on wearing them tomorrow.

I’ve got quite a bit of ribbing to do on the purple socks…

…and I’ve put these socks on separate needles to finish the gusset increases and knit the heel flaps. I’ll continue working on these two pairs of socks until they are finished and then I’ll decide about another pair of socks for later. I still have the Hitchhiker Scarf to finish and I’m looking forward to working on that.

Well, the deed is done. We are officially done with Simmons Bank as of today. Great feeling! And Brad got a good report from his heart specialist! Yay! He’s healthier than he’s been in years. Of course I’m sure a good part of that is the fact that it’s been nearly four years since he retired from his last job. It was time. He is free to do what he likes when he likes and to come and go when he likes. The man has worked his butt off since he was sixteen years old and he’ll be seventy in February.

It’s stayed mostly cloudy all day, a bit windy and a tad humid. We’ve kept the house closed and the A/C on to circulate the air and keep the humidity under control. Our forecast keeps changing in that the heavy rain predicted for tonight has been pushed forward to about 6 am in the morning. I’ve got a grocery order to pick up between 9 and 10 am and nothing else to do besides catch up with laundry and housework tomorrow and work on my knitting this evening.

Brad brought me brisket tacos for a late lunch. He grabbed a bite to eat while he was in town running errands. I’ve got a large chicken breast thawed that I plan on using for a pot of soup tomorrow. We probably won’t want much for dinner tonight, just a light meal or a snack later.

I’m going to put OAN news on and see what’s going on today. Fox News is a bust. They lie like the network news stations now so they can take a flying leap. And, boo hoo! Poor ol Shep Smith got canned from his latest gig. I guess he can always retire and write his memoir.

Time to get back to my knitting and make progress on at least one pair of socks, probably NOT the dark purple ones at this time of day. Hard on my eyes in the evening and the lamp doesn’t help that much.

I downloaded the complete set of Miss Marple books for my Kobo reader earlier so I am set to go for reading for the foreseeable future and I still have several Hercule Poirot books to read as well.

Have a blessed Thursday 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.
