Hello and Good (Chilly) Morning!
How was your weekend? Did you have fun? Make anything new? Eat some good food? I managed to do all those things (plus some of those mundane and pesky chores).
I started knitting one of those headbands that Kym posted about early last week. This will be for Anna, Mailing's sister and I should have sufficient yarn to make matching fingerless mitts!
(Displayed on one of my Christmassy tablecloths - one that my Mom made and we used decades ago!!)
This is a quick knit and a fun one. I had thought I would finish it yesterday, but I had made a false start on Friday and had to rip out all that I had knit. (I needed to get the hang of the first stitch being a yarn over). I re-started and chugged along. I am almost finished it, but yesterday the kids were over and I was busy cooking and doing other things.
The yarn is DK weight and like my Aspen socks, it is from Less Traveled Yarn in their Creosote Collection. The colorway is Prickly Pear. The band is so squishy - I will definitely be making more of these!
Saturday brought unexpected laundry thanks to Tyg and a MASSIVE hairball right on the guestroom bed! Geeze. I have to strip off the comforter, blanket, sheets and wash everything. It is rare for Tyg to do that (at least rare for him to do that inside...I don't know about outside). What a mess!
As I mentioned, C&M came over for dinner on Sunday. We celebrated their birthdays (Mailing's was 11/30 and Colin's is 12/11). Fletch grilled a leg of lamb and we had tri-colored baby potatoes steamed and a green bean casserole (requested as Mailing had never tasted green bean casserole!!). And I made a pecan pie.
So good (but so much sugar!!).
Sunday I managed to wrap gifts to be shipped AND got them boxed up and ready to ship. I will send them out via UPS from my office - most likely tomorrow. It feels good to have that finished.
And now here we are back at Monday. Work has already been busy this morning, so I won't be able to do much knitting or fun things during the day...but we shall see.
Hope you all enjoyed the weekend and here's to a great week ahead!
