Welcome to the traveling road show that is my life. It has been nuts. I must be out of my mind. I am somewhat physically challenged and becoming exhausted. But I have had fun. :0) My weeks are never this busy and next week is going to find me home recovering, hopefully. Amazingly I actually got some knitting done!
This last week included visits to;
Saturday: Ribfest for an afternoon with friends and an early supper
Sunday: Church, and lunch out with family
Monday: Visiting with Parents (Dad is recovering with broken ankle) then over to MiL’s (recovering from surgery) for a visit
Tuesday: OT appointment (for MiL), 4 hr knitting Lesson (given by me), Dr. appointment for DH, Dr. appointment for DS, with me for bad news, (my 21 yr old son, was told he is diabetic)
Wednesday: Posting WIP weds, Church Craft group, then an evening at Soper Creek Yarns for Knitting Club
Thursday: Physiotherapy, First music in the park 2012 in the evening
Friday: Posting FO Fri, Skin Dr. appointment for me, then a movie with my niece (her choice)
I anticipate sleeping in the car on the way home lol.
With all this going on I had time to make these, took no time at all :0)
This was a super, turbo fast knit! Uses leftovers. I used 2 – 4mm cable needles on leftover Dk yarn. There is no doubt that I will be making a bunch if these.
They’re a great carry along project. I am making them for a fundraiser, so our Church hall will have a ramp for wheelchair access.
All you need is:
I have begun using a bobbin to control the unknitted portion of the cord. A darning needle, a couple of little dabs of super glue and no more tangles! I really like them, the colours are actually much richer than my little old camera could capture :0)
And the day ends with a Bang!
A typical Tuxedo cat markings.
He is so little, he doesn’t register on the scale :0)

I am looking for small projects that are not size limited, like sweaters etc. Something innovative that is unusual and will appeal to a wider audience.
