Busy Friday

I’ve had a full, busy day and got a lot done around the house. It’s coming up to 8 pm and I’m finally getting around to working on my knitting this evening while we watch reruns of Dr. Pol.

Brad’s trip to Oak Ridge went well and he was back early in the afternoon. He’s got his I.D. and stopped by the sheriff’s office to make arrangements for Oak Ridge P.D. to use the county gun range for shooting qualifications in a few weeks. He’s in charge of firearms training and investigations. I’m glad he had a good day and got to visit with several people at the sheriff’s office that he hadn’t seen in some time. A good day all around for both of us.

My knee has calmed down since I’m staying on the turmeric tablets and I should be able to get some spinning done this weekend. Another thing I would like to do is start a fiber inventory so I know what is in my fiber stash and where I bought it. A lot of it is from Bethanne at Allons-Y! Fiber Arts, some is from a woman I used to purchase fiber from until she went woke and lost her mind. A little of it is from various vendors at DFW Fiber Fest over the years including several pounds of some very yummy cotton sliver.

I have a partial inventory of my commercial yarn stash and need to finish that as well as do an inventory of my hand-spun yarn. I’ll take photos and keep track of it all in One Note.

I’ve been wanting to work on my photography skills and decided to start with a shot of some of my hand knitted scarves, cowls and a hat. I think it came out pretty well but I’ll continue to work on improving my layouts.

I’ve set aside the first sock to work on the main color of the second sock that I am knitting for Brad. It’s a little late in the day for this project so it will wait until in the morning when I have better light. I do a couple of inches on one sock and switch to the other so my gauge stays the same.

Brad is out of the shower and it’ll be my turn shortly. In the meantime I’ll work on the Hitchhiker project and see how far I can get before bedtime. Hope your day was as blessed as ours.

RED Friday! Remember Everyone Deployed!

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.
