Finally got to go into town, left Tatla Lake after knitting bee on the 21st, first thing I did was get a haircut(3 inches whacked off), then up to Denise & Lens around 4:30. Thursday was the big run around, oil change and car wash, bank, Wally World, and a very thorough eye exam, by the time that was over was ready to quit, so back up the hill to D&L's. Friday morning got into the grocery store, bought every kind of lettuce that SaveOn sells along with a box of mixed organic salad greens, peppers, cucumbers, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage etc. Oranges, kiwi fruit, apples and a few bananas, 4 full bags of just produce. Home just after 3, unloaded perishables and called it enuff. John & Sahnte came on Saturday and brought everything else in.
Took Andrea's sock to work on and got 2 patterns after 25 rows ribbing done. Andrea was here for the KB and tried sock on, fits like it was made for her. One pix with all my row counters showing/
Its been snowing now since just before 7 am, sometimes quite hard, so far about 3 inches. After last years fire situation, will take all the moisture we can get.
Progress on socks for Andrea slower than I had hoped, arthritis in left hand ( use it for patterns ), slows me down. I try and so several rows every time I pick it up, next pattern will be #4. Have a pix but so far not working to add it. When I get it figured out will add it later.
Went to Tatla on Wednesday for KB and the good food box, all fresh produce even fruit this time, have especially enjoyed the oranges. Roma tomatoes, romaine, zucchini, carrots, potatoes, onions, peppers, garlic, cabbage, broccoli, oranges, apples, bananas prolly more that is already been eaten. I am wondering why I waited so long to start getting it.
This is the most of what I spun in 2017, there is more but still on bobbins waiting to be plied. Have no idea what yarn is intended to be yet, just an ever increasing stash.
Ribbing on Andreas first sock finished and will start on patterns yet today, but first must get in touch with A to see if she wants fraternal or identical.
This is the last pair of Monstersocks for 2017, afterthought heel will be going where the lime green piece is. But will wait for a sunny day to put it together, much easy to see stitches to be picked up.
Out yesterday to Tatla for knitting bee and to pick up my first good food box, not sure now why I haven't got into this before. Loads of fresh produce including peppers, romaine, tomatoes, cucumber. carrots, onions, potatoes, bananas all I have been out of for the longest time. One of the ladies from the church has enuff orders that she can buy at wholesale prices. Means I can put off again a trip to town (would like to wait for bare roads).
