Holy cow, I am one boring girl! Nothing new….well actually a whole mess of stuff has been happening with friends and relatives, but nothing really affecting me, personally, and I guess, that's good. When you get to my age, you really appreciate…boring! No ups or downs and things just going reasonably well is wonderful! I KNOW that some of you know exactly what I mean!!
No sewing again…stuff is still all packed away in the basement for now and I'm thinking it just might stay there for the remainder of the year. I have purchased a ton of yarn lately, and just like my fabric stash, my collection is growing faster than I can use it. I NEED to stop! I did pawn off a few DROPS FABEL skeins on my sister and neighbor this week, so I feel a bit better and if any of you want to try that "Dorothy's Slip Stitch Spiral Knit Sock" patter …….look it up on Google, it's free), I'll see what I have left and send you a skein or two. It is cheap though and I bought mine at the Nordic Mart. The yarn name is Drops Fabel Prints and you need two to make a pair of socks. Later in this post there is a picture of a pair.
Until then, here are the envelopes I sent out this week:
And here are my socks. The colors that I used on these were 914 an 903 (in case you're interested).
Since I had made three pair of that pattern already, (and even though I have a ton of yarn left for more combinations), I thought I needed a change, so here is what I'm knitting now. This yarn is NOT cheap…...it is marvelous and I am in heaven with every stitch. It has cashmere in it….ummmmm!! Note that it does have a slight variance in color which makes it interesting. I can't wait to see these done.
So, until next week…when I will be in a flurry preparing for the annual family pool party…..I hope you will be doing something that you love this week…..after all, that's what makes life fun! Have a good week, my friends…...
