Seriously? is there anyone who blogs or reads blogs anymore. I have been trying to be a little more diligent with my posting but my number of comments seems to have completely dwindled off to next to nothing. Still, thanks to the peeps who have stayed here and continue to support my boring drivel about my fascinating life.
On to knitting. I have been sidelined by a diversionary project that I’ve been referring to as the “Scooby Doo” hat because it’s a mystery. The pattern is pretty vague and caused my pal Beth a great deal of hair pulling. So…I was intrigued enough to start my own. It’s a simple lace but somehow we both lost one stitch in the first round and because I have a little more experience with tweaking lace I was able to get the pattern back on the right track. I’m making mine more of a Rasta style cap instead of a beanie.
Other things that I have going are a mystery project for a mystery person using the blue Paton’s classic. I always try to have a “no-brainer” project going so here’s the green Merkin scarf shown here. I am finished with the “Man Mitts“, I just need to weave in the ends and sew up between the fingers. This something I really hate doing so of course I’ve been putting it off. I haven’t touched my Glynis socks all week. I’m also trying to decide which lace project to start. I feel sort of lost without one, besides I need to break in my new lace knitting bag.
I really need to make a pledge to start knitting from my stash and only my stash. I have been stimulating the economy lately with some yarn purchases only to find that when I went to put them away my stash cabinet was a little …ahem….full. It’s comforting in a way though to know that at least if things get really tight for us at least I’ll have yarn. It’s the same sort of feeling I get from a fully stocked freezer, I know I won’t starve for a while.
Speaking of food..have any of you heard of Dr. Oz’s green drink? My boss told me she’s been drinking it for a couple of weeks. It’s like a veggie smoothie. I made a batch last week and have had a glass every day. I usually have to water it down a bit as it’s a little on the thick side but It tastes pretty good. I really need to get back on track with eating better. The last couple of weeks I’ve been slacking more than I should.
Mr. Larj’s status is about the same. At least he’s been able to continue to fill in and it’s been steady of late. My job is status quo except we were informed last week that we will be doing some rotations to inpatient rehab for a week at a time. I’ll have to up my meds when that happens as I’m sure my stress level will double.
Well enough procrastination for now. Everyone have a great week!
