Monday Stuff

A peek at something I just finished.... ends must be weaved in and yada yada before the full pic is posted. But.... I was just sooo happy with it that I couldnt wait to share a photo.

ohhh.. ahhhh...

Not the greatest pic... but its purty. Trust me. ;)

Tomorrow I am finally starting on my sock for my SET pal. Yeah, tomorrow night is really when the bitchin' from me should start.

Consider yourself warned. I am not a patient sock knitter.

I'm actually taking my SIL to the hospital tomorrow (she's having outpatient surgery) and plan on putting all that free time into the to-be beloved socks.


Ok. Truth is I will probably be playing Tetris on the cell phone a little more than knitting.

But, the socks will be on the sticks... in my purse....just in case.

I've noticed that I don't particularily like to knit in public. Too many distractions. Plus my husband told me recently that he can tell when I'm deep into a pattern, like its really complex (aka socks). He says, and this is horrifying - that I pucker out my lips - like a fish face kiss kind of thing.

Yeah. That HAS to be attractive.

Not to mention - oh no - my Mother does the same face. The hubby told me about the fish face thing - and I thought.... my Mother. I really am becoming my Mother.

I wonder when the 'must- have- a- clean- spotless- house, what- if- the- neighbors- stop- by- or- even- a- random- stranger- and- they- see- a- fleck- of-dust anywhere' gene kicks in.

Aging gracefully. Over-rated. Hmph.

To close on this wandering post... a pic of the boss in the house enjoying a few rays of sun. My baby... Sable Sable.

The wrap looks great now, can't wait to see it after it's blocked. But don't rush on my account. I have NEVER blocked a shawl - tho I should.

Funny, I always think I'm making "Mom" faces while watching TV. I KNOW they're there. Good thing Tom doesn't know.

Sable is glad you know who the boss is!

Gorgeous! Even w/o blocking/weaving. Hey I lost the email where you said what to do about the donation for the auction, blahblahblah. I'm doing something about it tonight, but I still don't know if I should send you the shipping $?
