Mostly about knitting and spinning cause that's what I do.
4 more pair on needles, work on each for at least 10 rows every other day before putting it down. Blue pair is farest along and have everything ready for sock #2. Blue pair will be identical all the others fraternal.
A couple of nights ago bout 9pm saw a blue heron land in tree just south of the house, watched it preen for some time and when it was to dark for a pix 2 more landed in tree beside the first. Same day saw a kingfisher dive towards the river. Bear activity has cooled down, assume they are over at the Chilko River system fishing for salmon. Last black I saw was just its backside as it headed for the west fence got a quick pix but not worth posting.
Nothing much happening in my wild mountain valley these days, some ranchers have finally been able to start cutting hay, and everyone else is hoping for rain. So many bad fires in BC again this season.
Sorry about neglecting the blog, stuff got in the way. Did finish the bugly socks (I'd hoped for really ugly didn't quite pull it off). So tried for another pair, this time closer but still no cigar. March was not a particularily good month for me. Had a big birthday that I'd just as soon forget, weather was lousy, 6 months now without a trip to town and car problems. Finally had to have vehicle towed to town, turns out it was major battery issues. Car was in town over a weekend and when notified that it was ready I was lucky to catch a ride in with a neighbour going in the next morning. When we got to town Linda Lou dropped me off at Downtown Service, got car and first thing went and got a haircut (first in almost 7 months, 4 inches curly stuff removed). Then briefly into SaveOn for produce and left after that for home. Even without driving in knew that I was going to be tired, sure enuff a quick nap in Alexis Creek helped. Now knitting shortie socks for the
First butt ugly Monstersock finished except for dealing with the ends. Each end is either knit in or out so all I have to do is trim (shag) each end so hopefully nothing will show up on the right side. Second sock started while watching the football game yesterday. Several daytime highs now above freezing means my driveway in places is solid ice, ever so glad I'm not planning on going anywhere.
After finishing this pair of blues and green I easily had enuff of the yarn used to make another pair. But just to be safe and sure I added the ball of the purple. Second sock of the new blues, greens and purple almost down to the heel. And I finally finished the red socks for Lynne A. I have another pair of socks with patterned foot on the go but I think it will be the last pair I make like that, arthritis in my left hand makes it hard to hold the second colour while doing patterns. The weather has finally got itself back to normal January temps, still in the low 20's° F but so much easier to take than the -37° below zero F.
