teasing us here in NY --
it got to 67 degrees the last two days --
and really nice outside--
temps will drop later tonight to 40 or below--
but the Chipmunk's must think winter is over--
cause they are out and about!!!
So where did we leave off in my week of Inchy's???
On Wednesday I went up to the yarn shop to take a class--
it was learning to knit 2 socks at once with the Magic Loop!!!!
Well---I had one big mess of twisted knots by the time I got home--
so I got out some heavier yarn and played with that--
Yesterday on my way home from walking up to the post office to finally mail the
winning gifts and a couple birthday gifts (of which--my goodness has the post office package
mailing rates increased--like it is 'double' what I used to pay for those envelopes--ouch!!)
I stopped back by the Yarn shop-- and
bought myself a different brand of 40" cable needles to make the socks on
(the one I had, I could not seem to get the cable to keep from springing into a loop--
even with heating it--soo)
and got me a pretty color of yarn for the socks--
and this afternoon I was able to get 3 rows of stitching on each sock--
so I am on my way!!!
And yesterday would of been--
here is a photo of my parents that I carry in my wallet--
they wintered in Zepherhills FL--for 16 years--
my Dad loved Fl my mother hated it!!!
So for 6 months a year he was happy--
and for 6 months of the year when they were in NY my mom was happy!!!
This is one of the best photos I have of the two of them where-- they both look happy!
Let's talk "Fashion" for a minute!!!
I am looking for some nice capris for this summer--
and don't really want denim--want them a bit lighter fabric--
and am 'shocked' to see that we have 2 choices for the most part--
first all the waist bands are now--
us short people can't wear those--we don't have that much 'space' at our
waist for that wide of band!!!!
Or we can get the new 'leggings'--
sorry--I may sound like my mother here--
but I really don't see me at my age--( or any age--)wearing them!!!
And what about fabric contents--
who idea was it to bring Polyester back full speed ahead--
it is in everything now in the clothing line!!!!
I do not do Polyester--!!!!!
So-- you do know what polyester is made from--right???
and you want to wear that on your body???
not this girl--thank you!!!
so this is my clothing 'rant' for this line of spring clothes!!!
SHOW SOME LOVE TO STRANGER THIS WEEK END--
AND BUY SOME ONE A CUP OF COFFEE/TEA!
