Brian found this new free game site called Travian and once he got set up had me babysit his game off and on and then decided it would be fun for me to join him in the game… SO Now I have a Non-Knitting, non-Knit-n-Stitch, non-Ravelry computer thingy to play with, SHEESH… :-) This game from the way he plays is definitely a time suck of epic proportions!
And We have an FO!! I finished weaving in the ends yesterday, got them washed, blocked and into a baggie to save for Christmas Gift Giving! They are really comfy but are on the small side for me so will gift them to a smaller footed person. I started the gauge swatch for Uncle Atchie’s Sweater, am using the Lion Brand Wool Ease form his boot socks last yr and the Brick Pullover by Kathy Zimmerman. The pattern seems to be intuitive but obly time will tell LOL! I may however have to go up a needle size or 2 for gauge esp since the yarn I’m using is worsted and the pattern calls for DK, pic of swatch to come when its far enough along for one. I am also, as soon as I get done here (and with the dishes too…YUCK) gonna cast on for Mama’s Cardi hopefully since the stitch pattern is easy to do I will be far enough along to post pics of it Monday Tuesday.
Speaking of Monday…I will be away from the blog for that day and hopefully only that day (crosses fingers) for Jury Duty. Will take some knitting with me (I think I can find some bamboo needles somewhere around here) so I can keep busy and not be bored while waiting. Unlike my hubby I doubt very seriously I’ll have someone there to chat with that i know (he had my sister lucky devil).
Thats all for today, will be back Tuesday (or maybe Sunday if I have pics to post) So see ya’ll then!
