Chatter and Manic Monday
Aren’t the daffodils gorgeous? The weather here is wonderful right now, I was able to sit on the park bench and enjoy the sun in the front yard on Sunday.
Sunday was my birthday and I got the most wonderful gift from DD1, can you see them
in the cruddy pictures. I have so many hanks of yarn that have not been touched, because I was too lazy to wind etc. Now I can get it done and use the yarn. . . I see lots of sock knitting and some lace knitting in my future, no excuses now. DD2 took me to the spa and got me a pedicure and a manicure that were wonderful, and she took me out to dinner. It was a great day!
As you can see by this mess of yarn, I have my work cut out for me :-)
I have been working on the sweater for my class; this is turning out to be the sweater that does not want to be knit. I am sure that it will not fit or there will be something wrong with it, IF it is ever finished. My first invisible cast-on looked awful, so I took it off the needles, rewound the yarn and started over. Next, the devil cat pulled off half of the stitches, so I had to gently pick all of them up, making sure they weren’t twisted and I did not miss any. Let’s see, what happened next. . Oh ya, the connecter fell apart from the cable on my Options, which took me another forever to fix, and finally, the devil cat attacked again. I am not careless when I knit, so I am wondering if it is just the Ides of March or if I am sabotaging myself. The Cashcotton is wonderful and I love the fabric that is slooooowly coming to life, but it is a big sweater for a fluffy person which means there must be lots of stitches. I tried to take a picture of it, but of course it looks really crumby, maybe I can try again tomorrow. Oh well, keep that sense of humor, its critical. lolololol
BTW- I called Knitpicks this morning and they are shipping me a new cable with correctly attached connectors ASAP. I love this company!
Are you a saver or spender? Since I am still buying yarn I must be a spender.
Do you prefer to walk around barefoot in your home? Socks? Shoes? I walk barefoot whenever I can, I hate shoes, guess that comes from spending so much time at the beach when I was young.
Do you talk to yourself? Yes, is there a problem with that? I also answer myself, which does not scare me at all.
