Okay, I know that I'm a very, very bad blogger but that's okay.... I don't pretend to be good at anything. I have learned to love my dysfunctional lifestyle.
Anyway, my little Sweetpea was spanked this summer by a pickup truck while quietly and patiently sitting at a red light. She is almost eight years old. Yes, I've been driving a Prius hybrid that many years. The insurance company wanted to "total" my baby, but I said NO WAY! I would have been happy to buy another Prius but there's a five month waiting list. So I begged and begged them to fix my little Sweetpea.
She's back on the road again and my neck is feeling fine.
Now onto knitterly things..... My goal for September and October (and probably November) is to whip through my projects that have been abandoned for quite some time.
Even though I finished my Nicole Jacket (Queensland Collection, Book 1, Jane Ellison) almost a year ago, I never wove in the loose ends. I wore it around the house last winter with yarn ends flapping in the breeze. I thought possibly I would start a fashion trend, but it didn't happen. So ta-da...
That's a really bad picture.... the sleeves really are the same length. The sweater is just hanging lopsided on the hanger. I'm not aspiring to be a great photographer. The only thing I want to know is which button to press for the camera to go "click."
And for the Manitoux Passage scarf that I started last winter, after a night of too much alcohol consumption, it ended up looking like this after I noticed I had the wrong amount of stitches on my needles. But two nights ago I finished all 72 inches and even managed to weave in the loose ends. She's a beaut! And will be very warm this winter.I also managed this summer to knit a pair of socks for this little guy... my great nephew, Robert. He looks a little sad because the end of his vacation is nearing. He and his twin sister, Grace, visited me this summer and we had a great time. They live in New Haven, Missouri.
But now he can smile because he has a pair of hand knit socks to keep his tootsies warm this winter.
I hope everyone has a great week of knitting! I'm off to work on abandoned WIPs.
