Unraveled Wednesday 10-4-17

Hello All,


Welcome to another edition of Unraveled Wednesday.  Joining Kat and others on this first Wednesday of October.


Fortunately, no unraveling has happened this week.  Minimal progress has been made on the 2nd Nutkin.  Minimal, but progress nonetheless.  I think I've managed 12 - 15 rows since my last picture.




The gusset decreases are complete and now it is just straight knitting for the foot until the toe decreases (I'm not doing the pattern on the front of the foot - I prefer a plain foot).  I doubt I will finish before we leave on Saturday, but I'm ok with that.


The majority of my "chores" before leaving for vacation are done!  Bathrooms scrubbed - check.  Kitchen floor done - check.  Fletch cleaned the living room and dusted up above the kitchen windows where there were bugs and webs, etc.  It's that time of year (Fall and Spring) where all the little creatures come out of hiding to bother me.  Most of the laundry is done, though Fletch informed me last night (after the washer was going) that he has some shirts he wants washed.  Oh well, that's easy.  so that and paying bills (far more painful) and I will be ready to go.


On the reading front, I am now three-quarters of the way through History of Wolves and will finish that before we leave.  I have several others on the Kindle including I Will Send Rain and Dandelion Wine so I think I'm good on the reading front.


Still need to pick up wine for the trip (of course).  We did test the lights on our camper Tuesday and YAY!  They work (this was the problem back in May and why we ended up with a staycation at that time). 


What are you all up to?  Hope there has been no unraveling in your worlds.

  2. You sound organized and ready! I'm sure you'll pack your vacation knitting; I rarely knit much on vacation, but it's necessary to take the right projects just in case. What is it about husbands and last-minute washing? John does the same thing. Hope you have a terrific vacation!

  3. The sock is doing great-bring it along on vacation; you will enjoy the slow time to have it-like a security blanket!

  5. It really is a buggy, webby time! I have to clear new ones out every day.

    I agree with marly--15 rows is a lot! Especially tucked in amongst all the other stuff you've been up to.

  7. I think that sock will be finished in no time, particularly if you are not doing a pattern on the foot.

    Vacation is almost here for you - YAY!!
