Down the street on a warm summer day


Wash clothes that I made. Cotton is slightly better to knit in the summer


A large pile of socks that are going away. Some have felted horribly. Some have holes in them, that I don't feel like darning. Most of them are Grilltech's because he's really hard on socks.


Oh Snap

I broke down and turned on the air conditioner today. It's only 95 out there. It's going to be a long summer.

Happy Solstice everyone!

  • Eww, Cubemate, that was stinky
  • I'm wanting to eat everything in the place. That needs to stop

  • Have a good weekend, I'm out of here

My birthday trip to Jackpot is done and over with. We lost. We're talking next year a trip to the coast instead. It would be something different and out of our rut.

Down the street on an almost summer day.


I picked up some yarn with my discount from the LYS. I can't wait to finish Grilltech's hat to start on a pair of socks. This yarn looks amazing.


I made a couple of wash clothes. It took me less then a day to complete them. One on Saturday/Sunday, the other on Tuesday.


Adulting?

Last night we went and talked with a financial planner. It's like we're real adults or something. I'm leaning towards the or something because there is no way I'm ready for adulthood. After our meeting, Grilltech and I went to dinner at a local brew pub. Grilltech is very attached to Poutine and I had the salmon BLT. I added another inch to the hat while at the meeting and dinner.

We also stopped off at the LYS. I picked up two sock yarns. One for me and one for him. I'll post pictures later.

While getting out of the car last night, I dropped my phone and cracked my gorilla glass. It's just a small crack, but enough to be annoying. I'll have to live a week with the crack.

Nothing else exciting is going on, maybe I'll knit tonight. Who knows.

  • There was three cars at the coffee shop this morning
  • We didn't win the lottery, guess I've got to work today
  • Cow-orker gave me some dark chocolate with almonds. Now I can't remember what I was doing
  • It's time to renew the domain name
  • Started to get excited about our annual trip to Jackpot
  • Stupid-assed program, gotta exit and go back in
  • I've got a coupon for 20% off at the LYS, think I'll stop in tonight
  • Hope everyone's night is good, see you tomorrow

Down the street on a muggy spring/summer day.


My newest bathmat. I made one like this one, only smaller and I didn't like it. So here is it's replacement.


I finished my socks. I really like the random colors of this pair.


Baby Bird wanted a scarf. She picked her colors and I thought they'd look really good with enterlac. I haven't trimmed the ends, because I need to find out if she wants fringe or not. Who am I kidding, of course she's going to want fringe. She's a 10 year old girl.


Last up is a dishcloth knit on game night, start to finish. Not GMing gives me more time to knit.

Date Night

Today we're going to go see a movie after work. We rarely go to the movies during the afternoons, because we expect it to be busy and if there is anything we hate, it's crowds. But the thought process today is, it's still early enough, we might miss the crowd.

I'm working on another hat for Grilltech. He likes how long the first one was but says it's a bit too tight for him. So I went from 68 (I think, it might have been 64) per side to 76. I'll do a couple of inches and have him try it on to see how it's fitting. wish me luck.

At work today, we had a potluck. I made cheesecake. The guys are going on like it's the best they've ever eaten. Really? It's a basic cheesecake nothing exciting.

List Day

  • Gas is at $2.53 per gallon
  • There was no cars at the coffee shop this morning
  • Finished my socks, started another hat for Grilltech
  • Oops, pulled my loop through on the hat, now I have to count again
  • We're going to see Wonder Woman tomorrow
  • Change of plans, no taco's tonight, but BLT's
  • Have a good night

May

It's suppose to be in the 90's today. Which mean I'll be melting in the house because it's not quite warm enough to turn on the air. But fans? Hellya, those things will be going full tilt.

I finished Baby Bird's scarf. Perky suggested I keep knitting until the second skein was done, but that wasn't going to happen. Today I started the toe on my sock, so that will be finished soon. Not sure what the next thing I'll be working on.
