I haven’t posted in a while, because it feels like there is nothing new to share. Work is plodding along, tax season started Monday, so I have to get in the groove of that, but it isn’t what I would call noteworthy. 🙂
A and I have been spending our weekends quietly – Saturday we do chores and errands and I go to Purple Fleece for knitting group, and she either does something with her sister or the cats, or works on organizing the big closet.
Sundays we putter together. This Sunday we watched the kitten bowl. Cute but too long. She fixed snacks for the big game, which we don’t watch, but do have a bet on. We tape it, speed through the game, watch the ads (LOVED the Giants ad spoofing Dirty Dancing!) and eat snacks. We go to bed before the half time show.
I had the Patriots, A had the Eagles. We are both very happy that they won, because I do love an underdog. 🙂 Even if their win means I lose a bet or two!
Knitting and spinning updates:
Still working on
the scrap blanket
the blue spin
As you see, they are all slowly growing but look the same. Nothing exciting! The spin should get done this weekend. I hoped to finish it sooner, but I got caught up crocheting (it’s hard to stop doing that) and so it is a little behind.
Durrow is very well designed and well written, but so intricate that I am amazed that anyone ever thought it could be done. I am near the end of the first square, and it is slow going now. There are four sides to the squares, and right now I have to alternate between two charts to complete a row. IE chart one for one side, chart two for the next side, chart one for the third side, chart two for the fourth side. SO MUCH CONCENTRATION NEEDED. But it is so worth it, and it isn’t HARD, it’s just slow going and not TV knitting. 🙂
Hitofude is easy knitting, but long rows, so I can’t pick it up and drop it easily. This is why the crocheting has gotten so much love!
And that is all I have! Getting ready for another snowstorm immediately followed by a couple of tax days. Sunday will be LOW KEY!
