Let’s take a little music break. To begin with, these two girls are very talented. The little one especially. But the song itself always manages to make me tear up. “At the end of the day, oh Lord I pray, I have a life that’s good.”
And at the end of the day, that’s what counts. A life that is good -and filled with yarn goodness – but a life that’s good.
On the knitting front, I made my rasta hat in alovely combo of black, plum and white per a customer’s request but I didn’t get a photo of it. I also have a sock on some needles. I recently got my library card and the first two books I checked out were.
The last craft show I did, three folks came up and asked if I had any socks for sell. It was a cold day and they were looking for some insulation. I would have had a better day had I had some socks.
So I had a design for some slouch socks in my mind and they are now on the needles. But I am making them from worsted weight. I am making them for warmth not for hard wear. I imagine no shoes on but toasty toes. We’ll see how I feel after I make them. Im using a sizw 5 needle and it’s still going to be a bulky leg – but it’s a slouch sock – that may be just fine.
My nephew, Mike, won the blanket on Saturday and my mind immediately turned to the one I will need to make for next January. I then put it out of my mind. Better to panic about it in October than to plan it out and do it early.
I still have some orders and after the rasta hat that I have to make, I will do a cowl I haven’t done in years. Looking forward to making it. Another hat was also finished and the weather reports says we are going to be warm for the next seven days so I see some photography in the near future.
The J hook has a Sidewalk shawl on it. I made one a while back in green and I must have left out some rows because it came out a bit smaller than the others and now I am rectifying it. I am going to add another round and then the closing round and row and that should bring it up to snuff.
I sent off an order with 20 pom-poms and so it goes on. It’s a blessed thing to be able to do this and though it is not yet a living it’s a great start and a great part of that life that’s good.
Hope you find your blessings and happiness as well.
