It's a good spring rain outside, the soft sound makes it a sleeping day. But I'm not sleeping. My sister in law Tina is coming to stay and I am getting ready for her. I love her. She is a true pure soul. I hope Bug is super nice. The chances of that are slim to none. He is miserable, getting ready for his surgery. I am anxious and unsettled.

Real Estate

I am combing the online info I can amass to see if there's a house to fit mom's specifications. I don't think there is but I am still looking. I hope I can get her out of there soon. She is unhappier by the day with her 'friends' and neighbors.I don't blame her.I am not particularly pleased with them myself.

Stocking Hat

The pink and black long stocking hat is hilarious, a hat for a teen girl, perhaps, and I bet the matching fingerless gloves are still there. I am getting around early to drop off the house payment and my new hat to the booth. I think it's going to be a good day.

Hoo Hat

I can't describe it any better than that. It's wild! I love hats but I don't know if this one will be attractive to humans in the least.
I am nervous and antsy. So many things looming ahead. I fear them all!

The Joys Of Knitting

I am working on a pink and black hat that has decided it's going to be a stocking cap. I love this hobby! Perusing patterns is better than shopping. I'll consider what materials it I have a #5 needle...can I do all those stitches? The best way to learn, like yo and ssk is to find a pattern with that stitch in it and just wade in. I love it! That's how the FF scarf came to be. And that's not a great example because I haven't picked it up in weeks. Just too much other stuff to do!

Basket Weave

I am working on Ben's dark red basket weave scarf. God knows I am sick of scarves but this one is pretty fun. I really like the border around it and I know he'll like it.
Going to the booth to add a few things. Wanted the pink and black hat done but I'm just at the brim. Bummer!

Black Nails

I do my own acrylic nails and this time I was so busy it was nearly three weeks until I could fill them. When I did the fill and struggled with the tiny brush I had on hand, I painted them Orly Liquid Vinyl, my all-time favorite shade. Shiny black, just perfect. Looks good on short nails and more importantly lasts. Painted my toes to match.
Gonna be warm and windy looks like. I have a class at 1pm, and started a mauve and white tiny baby hat- just 40 stitches on #6 needles, then going on with the beret pattern. Hope it's cute. Might look for fancy bootie pattern.

It's been a drain to set up the booth but now I'm getting back into the swing of things. Soon I will try to make some small fingerless gloves. Three scarves on needles. Ugh!

No Time to Knit!

I don't have time for anything, really. I need to be in the shower RIGHT NOW and there are a few new things Bug brought me from the neighbor lady. He mowed her yard for a box of goodies, she is not able to do it herself.
I am getting my camera charged up to take pics and I am filled with plans. I made a list (handwritten, since I don't have a printer and never needed one until now) of all my items and in it all only have one fingerless glove done (besides the display ones) and wont be using the cream blue and white cap and scarf of Fiona's. I'm taking it to work today to avoid temptation.
I must get busy!
