I HAD FUN TODAY--

with 'clicking' off some things on my 'to do list'--
the first one was cleaning off my 'poor' little table--
it seemed to have been collecting all sorts of items since I got home-
2 weeks ago--poor thing!!!!

In that process, the first thing that went on the 'clean' table was--
my box of wool-
and then 2 two projects got prepped--
Ahh--yes--this is August's wool block--shhhh--don't tell anyone--
that I am that far behind on these!!!
and--
Is September's block--
I love how I bagged up each color of wool and put them into large storage bags--
so so much easier finding the right shade now of whatever color I need!!!

And I love love  pink--
did you know that about me--???
sure 'you' did--
so out came the basket of pink on the day it was announced as this months color!!
and here will be this months cat--
all marked now and even the applique thread is picked out--

and -
remember I got a couple skeins of sock yarn in NY?
they are self stripping yarns--
and one can get both socks to match--
provided one knows how to start each one correctly--
the problem for me is -- I can't seem to do just one sock-
I need to do both at the same time--
so first I rolled the yarn into 2 balls--by using each end in the skein--
but then I could not get the second balls colors to co ordinate with the first one--
so today I had a brain storm--
I re-wound one of the balls--
and now look--
sock one--
sock two--
now to see as I keep going if I did it right???????

What did you do today????

           ENJOY THE MOMENTS, DI

  2. Love the cat!! Thanks for the tip on Pink. I haven't had a chance to check on that yet. Good job on prepping your wool projects. You'll have them finished in no time! I prepped a couple of small embroideries for my road trip. Hope to get some done tonight.

  3. I like that sock yarn, great colours. The pink cat is going to be cute. I can't believe you are behind ... I bet you catch up before I get sterted on my ufos :) Just "unknitted" half a baby blanket - didn't see the mistake until now. That's what happens when you knit and watch a new film at the same time :) reruns work better.
    Have fun!

  5. WooHoo for socks! I hope your socks are matchy matchy for you. I've done it a few times but I actually like crazy mismatched socks so I don't bother anymore. I do love the colors.
