flying by kind of post

Just wanted to say that last night  I sat down on the sofa in front of a gentle fire and the even ing news with supper and knitting.  I had only one row to do on the sweater back – the cast off row, which I did post-haste.  Sweater pieces are now finished!  I’ll block them and assemble this weekend, then do the crochet edging.

I then decided to look at the hat to match.  The mom wants “one of those pointy cute hats” so I may not make the pretty one that goes with the sweater.  I decided to cast on an alternative in some other yarn to learn the pattern, when the lights went out.

That’s right.  The universe was so astounded that I met my sweater deadline a day early that it shut down the lights.

  1. Aw, so sorry the power went out! We have had very high winds the past 2 days here in Michigan and I am holding my breath that the power doesn’t go out here. Just have to hang in there for the rest of today and then we should be in the clear. I hope that your power is back on by now.

    1. It came on a couple of hours later, yea! We were having a bit of wind and a lot of rain, but apparently the problem was at one of the stations. Not a tree or anything. I am sure the linemen were very glad.

        1. We sure are! Our evening routine this time of year is to sit with dinner in front of fire and TV, watch the local news, then watch a show or two that we taped the night before, while I knit away.
          We take lights, TV, pellet stove, water for granted. Since the power does go out at some point each winter, we have our systems ready to go when it happens, but it is always a shock and adjustment. We much prefer it to happen during daylight so we can get things ready for dark, but this time of year, daylight is hard to come by!

      1. We are in middle of high winds (only small snowfall, here in our sheltered area so far..) of our first “blizzard” of the season – pulled out my 100 hour candles, so I can read, write and plan for future – while the lights are out – LOL

        1. yes, we have to get a bit more prepared – it was unexpected. Hope yoru first blizzard went well and is gone. We have had some flurries, but mostly, it is a warm autumn. Hard frost last night, but this time last year, we had already had two major snow storms. No complaints here about scraping the windshield. 🙂

    1. lol – I can, if it isn’t too dark a movie and it is a simple pattern. I have made many a hat in the movies. Got the sweater done, now it is drying. 🙂

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
