It's done! and for sale ;)

I worked on it a lot today and it's done and posted for sale...what is it? why, a new potholder/oven mitt. It's called Jack O Lantern and it's for sale ($3.00) over on Ravelry.
go take a look or if you're not on Ravelry, send me an email to buy.
If only I could write and proof as fast as I get ideas...too bad it's not instant!
have a great nite and til next time....keep knitting.
hello again, I'm taking a few minutes for myself. I work 2 out of every 3 weekends so when I'm off, I play catch up from all the days I wasn't home. Laundry runs constantly and I try to do way too much. I think I go back to work to rest!
Last nite dear friend Susan had a cookout/ party. DH and I went for supper. it was lots of fun and good company. but today DH is sick again. He's had a flu all week and still went to work, so he's on the couch trying to feel better for tomorrow. So I'm making soup for his dinner to help him get well.

We're working on changing our electric service from a fuse box ( ancient) to a breaker box and thot we had it all ready to be inspected. That is until we talked to ppl and the inspector. darn, darn,darn..had to take it back off the house up 30' and move it higher. thot we wouldn't have enough wire. then re attach it. that would be ok,,,but the ladder was wimpy, DH couldn't get high enough on it. So I had to go up and unscrew the top. Now that may not be much to some of you. But I'm terrified of ladders and heights! I forced myself to go up by telling me that "you're only 2 ft off the can do this" yep, I know that doesn't usually work..but I had to do it. I'm not a whiner so what has to be done..will be done. I got it off the house but wasn't strong enough or brave enough to go back up and re attach it. so this morning dear nephew came over and went up the ladder to fix it. thank goodness HE'S not afraid. it's now re attached and ready to inspect tomorrow. While I was taking him back home, I stopped at the Turkey Hill quickie mart and wow! there was a pair of Harley's and a biker chick that I knew! My dear niece that I haven't seen in over 2 yrs! we had a quick chat before they got back on the bikes. hope to hook up soon for lunch.
I'm working on a new design so stay tuned. It should be ready later this week. that's all for now. Til next time...keep knitting.

Current project..Wolcott hat

This is what I'm currently knitting. It's called Wolcott by Sarah Burghardt. you can find it on Ravelry here
I'm using Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn in Earth Ombre color. It's for my oldest daughter. She has really, really long hair and needs a slouchy hat like this for the winter. Hope she likes it. I'm past the crown and working the straight rise part. Traveling to see my son later today so maybe I'll get more time to work on it while I ride. Have a great day all and til next time...keep knitting.

Hey! I'm back here again

I've been really busy and actually forgot that I had a blog! I've designed some new patterns and they're for sale here or on Ravelry. I'm working on some Christmas knitting. here's a peek at what I'm knitting. the pattern is over on Ravelry.Yes, I know it's only September...but if I don't get going it will be like last year. I'll still be knitting on Christmas eve. I work full time in a center for mentally handicapped individuals. It's very rewarding, but also very challenging most days. We've had lots of changes in the family in the last yr. It was very sad to lose 2 of our family pets to cancers. We still have one little dog, a pug named Sophie who is very spoiled. My grandson started kindergarden and my youngest daughter graduated college. I hope to start posting more here and on Ravelry, so check back often. til next time, keep knitting
