Good Morning Everyone!
The last Unraveled Wednesday of April 2021. Unbelievable!! Also unbelievable is the fact that it is supposed to hit 85 degrees here today. It's gonna feel like summer for sure! I'd best find some shorts and lighter weight clothes to wear rather than the flannel shirts I have been living in, along with jeans or pajama pants (I'm telling you, I am quite the fashion plate these days!!). Along with that, now that I'm fully vaccinated, I NEED to find a hair salon and get my hair chopped (I'm talking a major reduction). But first there is a bit of work today and also some more laundry.
As usual, I'm linking up with Kat and friends to talk making and reading. There has been some progress on the knitting front. Beekeeper Sock #2 now has a heel turned and gusset stitches picked up...on the downside now.
I won't hazard a guess as to when this will be done...whenever I do that I tend to jinx myself and get into a stalling mode - lol.
The French Market Bag is also moving along. There are now 152 stitches on the needles.
I need to get to 200 stitches and then it will be straight knitting for a bit. I'd like to get all the increases finished on the DPNs (easier that way as the increases are after the first stitch and after the last stitch on each needle). The DPNs should easily hold 50 stitches each. Again, no guesses as to when all this will happen - hahaha.
I haven't finished any books this week. Fletch and I are still making our way through "Radio Free Vermont" and I've started reading Mudbound which is excellent. Barbara Kinsolver on the cover states that Hilary Jordan writes with the force of a Delta Storm!!
On a final note, we had a beautiful visitor to our yard yesterday! Fletch and I were sitting on the patio sipping beverages before dinner when suddenly this bird appeared.
A Towhee!! We see them occasionally, but they are fairly rare in our yard.
Happy mid-week! Have a wonderful Wednesday.
