STILL KNITTING AWAY!!!

I did get another finish earlier this week--
but I just 'goofed'--
as it is a crochet finish and not a knit one this time--
remember this shawl???
now I have some 'sexy' gloves to go with it!!!!
these are crocheted and I enjoyed making them--
and look I even learned how to add 'beads' to them!!!
I did have to restart them a 'few' times--
but well worth the effort in the end!!!!!

Today I went to an all day UFO day at the yarn shop--
they are nice cause I get waited on!!!!
we get morning goodies served to us--
then lunch is ordered from one of the local cafe's and Pam serves us that--
and after lunch we get homemade cookies!!!
and today we had some LOUD music to help us work--
NO--try again--
better--but try again--
Now we are talking--Loud--
they are making 4 apartments over the Yarn shop and next door business--
and for months--yep months and months now we have had the 'privilege'
of listening to them work--today was nearly unbearable--I hope though that they were finally putting down the flooring--so that it will be 'quieter' when I am at classes at the Yarn shop!!!!!

I worked on this project for the most part today--
 Remember this one--
worked on the two front panels to it today and got up to the second color--
so I feel better--this is just a knit and purl job--ohhhh--I better be checking the pattern--I may be close--or even beyond the decreasing part??????????

I did do two decorating projects this week--
one is the dry sink as you come into the apartment--
I actually found the bowl and pitcher at the Country shop and that is where I got the dry sink from--
all the dollies are old ones and I had picked up the country rabbit doll long ago!!!
and finally got some racks so I could display some of my 'jewels'--
so now maybe I will 'think' to wear them once in awhile----lol!!!!

I am praying for all my friends and blog buddy's who are in harms way this week end--
we are to get some rain and a little bit of wind possibly late tomorrow--we will see!!!

take care you all and stay 'dry' and safe--says, Miss Gracie--
and don't forget the pets!!!!
Hugs, to all--Di and Miss Gracie

  1. Your knitting & crochet projects are coming along nicely! Well done! Love your dry sink (we call these items bathroom dressers) and bowl/jug set, very nice!!!
    I have been following the news about the hurricane, doesn't sound too nice, and yes my first thought is always for the animals, I hope they don't get left behind, poor little things!

  4. Lovely lovely work, Di! Sorry the yarn shop was so noisy.

    Irene has arrived and woke me up at 4 pm with rocking the house and spattering rain at the east-facing windows. :-( Hoping and praying we don't lose power. The eye of the storm should pass just a little east of us!

    Stay safe!
