Done. Done. And Done.

Done! The beginning is now grafted to the ending and it needs a soak in Eucalan and then blocked. I have another set of six mini skeins for another cowl and I might as well cast that on to keep on hand for simple, on-the-go knitting. I enjoyed this project a lot and look forward to wearing it now that the weather is cold enough to enjoy it.

Done! My BBQ chicken is very tasty! We ended up not having it for dinner since we had such a late lunch so we’ll have it for dinner tonight. I could have sworn I had another can of Bush’s BBQ Beans in the pantry but we’ll have pinto beans instead. I’ll make the potato salad after lunch and put it in the fridge to chill.

Done! I got my Fitbit Charge 5 charged, set up and paired with my android phone last night. I’m going to look around for a different strap. This one is a bit bulky for my wrist and I ended up using the longer strap for comfort. Now all I have to do is start moving!

I ordered a few more long-sleeved and short-sleeved tee shirts from Land’s End and the order came in yesterday. It’s time to go through my closet and cull the faded and stained tees. I’m enjoying the long-sleeved shirts around the house and find I don’t need my sweater unless I’m sitting for awhile and sometimes the shawl does the trick instead of the sweater. I need to see about replacing some worn knit slacks as well. If I can find what I like. I hate shopping for clothes and prefer to order online if I can get the brand and fit that I like.

Now that my joints are feeling better I’m going to work on the ribbing of the purple socks and see how long it takes me to get them finished. I could be wearing them! I’ll wait a few more days before tackling the lacy socks. I don’t want another flare up with my hands right after I’m feeling so much better.

Time to put the coffee on to brew and decide what to fix for breakfast. Have a blessed RED Friday, 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.
