I sure don't have much knitting to report. Not like Rhoda who is starting a sweater! I finished and immediately sold a soap on Wednesday morning at knit group, I also gave another one away before taking pictures. LD's first Broadripple-like sock is done. I am at the place where you pick up stitches for the gusset of the second sock. I'm going to go to Grumperina's site, and pick the stitches up the pretty way this time. The top pic is the one with the flash, and the bottom one without. I think!
Monday and Tuesday the kids were home from school, because the temperature with the wind chill was too cold for the buses, and for kids to be standing around waiting for buses. We also had Lake Effect Snow, and blowing and drifting. Yesterday and Wednesday, the sun was out, though! I still can't believe it, but it was! Having those two unexpected days off from school, makes for a strange week. I'm so glad it is Friday!
I've been getting the nicest compliments on my new hat. Even the grumpiest check out lady at the grocery store, the one we never go to, said she liked my hat. I've never heard her say anything nice to any one. I'm going to have to hold on to this one tight, my three kids want to steal it from me!
I guess I really can knit when I get a chance. Last night Hubby saw me making yucky faces at the dishes, so he did them, while I sat and knitted on that sock and finally caught up on some Lime & Violet podcasts. Man, they crack me up! I love that I can listen to podcasts and knit at the same time. I used to knit while waiting for pages to load, but the computer is too fast now. Not that I'm complaining! Heck no, I like the fast!
Thanks so much for all of the nice comments on my hat, and on the knitter girls. hehe While we sat in the DR. office LD got to knit a bit on her sock. That was very exciting for her. Her own knitting was at school. I love that they get to knit at school! Anyways, thank you! I love the nice comments, everybody!
Have a great weekend!!
