Glove stuff

Have put my fingerless gloves into a time out and have started the gloves for Marian G in Arizona. I told her I would have them done in time for her to take on her Christmas trip, so thought since I'd be mailing them that I had better get to it. Have thumb gusset stitch count up to 13, need increases every third row to a total of 21 stitches. Football on the telly tonight so should get past increases. My fingerless gloves will wait at some of the ribbing done on second glove, have kept careful notes so can pick up when the mostly red gloves are done.


Saw 6 deer come slowly walking down the driveway on the 18th, they all jumped the fence and I think headed to the river for a drink, then came back 10 minutes later to head back up the driveway before disappearing into the bush up across the road. Could only get 4 in the pix the first and last were just to far away from the four I got.


Have a turkey breast in the freezer that I will get out on Monday the 24th to slowly thaw in fridge, will have the turkey for American Thanksgiving (Canadian was just before DM) will also do a buttercup squash, maybe some coleslaw, mashed potatoes and gravy, thus guaranteeing me at least a weeks worth of meals, followed by the best part turkey noodle soup.

  1. Always enjoy reading your entries. I have a Fox Paws shawl I am working on during the day, and mittens for the grandsons while watching TV in the evening. I have a sweater on the needles for myself, but need to rip out the bottoms of the sleeves and shorten before I will be happy with them. I'd like to start a cardigan for my husband, but need to settle on a pattern. I've never knit anything for him in 36 years of marriage except a scarf and socks, so a sweater for him will be a monumental project.
