One of my favorite days of the week, knit night. Full of jokes, mostly goofy, some naughty. A night without kids (unless they’re in the back ground while your video chatting) and maybe some food and a few drinks. It’s a night that I get to feel like a real person. Not just an answering machine, a maid or chauffeur. I get to have a thought of my own, stretch my mind, and maybe learn something new. While I miss being there in person, I will take video chatting or texting any day over not having one at all.
Tonight I worked on another UFO. Some stalkings that I’ve been working on for about 2 years now, off and on. I should be finished with one anytime and the second shortly after. I only have the feet to finish. The pattern is vintage from about 1930 or so and it’s a bit thicker than I pictured, but it should be nice for winter time and something very original. Next time I think I’ll use something a bit thinner and maybe try to modify the pattern for a toe-up knit, but for now, I think this will be very unique.
I pulled all of my patterns out of the garage, so I can start to organize them. Yes, I have a few patterns. I have issues…. I would like more, but I need to find some more pattern companies. When I go to buy more, they’re all the same ones I already have. I had to start cataloging them on the computer so I could cross reference them to make sure I didn’t buy two of the same (again). I also have a few vintage from before I was born and from when I was a kid. I would like a few more of those too. Yeah, I have issues….
Swim lessons went well today, I stayed deep in my knitting so I didn’t have to chat with the lifeguard again, don’t get me wrong, he’s a nice, but he was coming off as a little strange. And, no Speedo men! Although, there was one woman doing a very questionable workout in the pool?
That was about the extent of my excitement for the day, other than the usual bill paying, borough calling, fighting with the printer and 2 hours of long division. Tomorrow we are throwing in some excitement; we’re heading to Costco, my second favorite store (after the fabric and yarn store). The boys always enjoy our trip there too. I wish they had a fabric or yarn store up north, so I could go sniff around a bit.
