Thursday going ons

today was a over cast day. With disappointing news that hubby didn't get the new position at work. But we know that God still has plans for us. They just don't look like we thought they would. I did catch China soaking up what sunlight there was before I headed to work. This evening I finished the body of the baby sweater and started on one of the arms.

Tuesday knitting update

This morning was a little rough so it was spent drinking tea and watching Netflix. This evening I was able to knit a little on my hat. Not a big knitting day.

Friday always sneaks up on me, I work earlier that day and it always seems the hardest day of the work week to get up and going. It was a pretty normal Friday that finished up with Preston making spaghetti and garlic bread and we actually enjoyed a date night it at home.  Schedules have changed for the girls so we will see them more on the weekends hopefully.

Saturday morning was extremely rough for me, I needed extra help waking up and mr80grit was chatty which made me want to duck tape his mouth.  But coffee soon made me a human. Band practice was busy and done before I knew it. Then it was time to wrap gifts and head out for a baby shower. I love knitting gifts that the receiver is overwhelmed with delight.  Both mom and dad to be were ecstatic about the gifts. We finished Saturday night off with dinner with Preston's parents at our favorite place! Before calling it quits for the night I did finish my first pair of toe up socks.

Sunday was busy with two church services with lunch and a meeting afterwards.  It was quick and fun but a horrible migraine brought me down in the afternoon. I rallied back later by casting on a baby sweater and after ripping back to the 6th row was able to knit into the night. I also cast on new toe up socks at church in the morning 

 I think I am ready for the new week. Monday is suppose to be in the mid 50's. Really would like a good snow storm, but it looks like the best we are going to get it rain maybe.

Friday Letters

Dear Winter,
While I have been enjoying the sunny days, I need snow and cold days so that I can wear my woolies. Also I am not a fan of bugs and if we don't get colder days for longer time I fear we will be overrun this summer.

Dear Pattern Writer,
I love that you have made a mystery knit a long for socks. However, I wish that you would use standard abbreviations and charts. While I love seeing what the other knitter have completed, your pattern is not fun to knit and has been frogged.

Dear Pookie,
There are days that amaze me that you still hang in and love me.  I appreciate the little things that you do for me, like the unexpected chocolate caramels last night.  They mean as much as the big things. As we have entered a season of changes, you are my rock and my love.

Dear Fergie and China!
My little four legged sun worshipers! Thank you for the cuddles this week, especially this morning when things were a little rough for me.  Your cute voice and happy purrs make me smile.

Catching up photos

I finished the baby afghan on Monday, 384 cables...way too many so time for a change no major cables for a bit so boot cuffs for Preston's family is on hold. Working on my toe up socks at night before bed.
