Down the street on a fine summer day

Finished two wash clothes

Finished another two

What am I going to do with all this left over cotton? Time to start a scrap blanket


I have a dentist appointment today. I broke a tooth and it's going to get fixed. Usually I have my knitting with me to help pass the time, but today I forgot it. In the mad dash to get out the door on time, I left it sitting on the coffee table. I guess I'll need to kill zombies. Sorry sock, you missed out.

It's a Sweater

I've got a couple of inches to knit on the Captain America sweater before I start the star. I've got some math that needs to happen, because this sweater is a bit larger then the pattern.

In the mean time, there are some things I need to do:
  • Figure out where to center the star. It needs to be above a red column
  • Where to put the sleeves
  • I haven't looked to see how many stitches the star is, so I'm kinda making trouble for myself

The Eldest, who I'm making the sweater for, want it to be a hoodie. I'm thinking I've never done a hood before and I really don't want to do it, so you're getting a crew sweater. Deal with it. But part of me is going, you can do the hood, it's not a big deal. Well, you've seen what the other half of me says. So I'm torn.

I can't wait until it's cool enough to knit on this project.

Down the street on a sunny day

Finished another washcloth. It's too hot to knit with wool or acrylic, so cotton it is. The past couple of days have been a bit cooler, but still on the warm side.

Started a new washcloth. Perky's in-laws like the knitted washcloths for Christmas, figure it doesn't hurt to have them on hand. (She'd better get knitting on some also.)

I lost my cable needle (somewhere in the house) and bought a new one. (The blue one.) Decided I hated it and had to find my regular cable needle on line. After posting to Ravelry asking what's it's called. Now I've got a name. Or you can check out Knit Picks tool.

Stay cool out there.

Fun and Games

Yesterday we get home and walk thru the utility room; and hear a hissing noise. The same noise we heard when we left in the morning - the one I thought was the water heater doing it's job. Turns out it wasn't. One of the flex hoses had sprung a leak and had been spraying water all day. At this point, Grilltech is trying to get the water to stop spraying, while I'm on the phone trying to get a plumber.

Then it's a waiting game, because Grilltech has an hour before he leaves for work. Half an hour later, I get a phone call that a tech is on the way. Ten minutes before Grilltech has to leave he shows up. We're still having water spray because there appears to be a back fill on the water heater. The tech turns off the water at the main which makes it nice. Tells me how much the fix will be, then because the water had been going all day, it is possible the pilot light will go out. Ouch.

He gets me a quote to replace, because honestly with our luck, it will go out. I apply for their 12 months same as cash option, and luckily I get it. So Friday I'm getting a new water heater. Because the old one was out of code and it's a good idea to replace it.

Why is it when we get some money saved up, something comes along and wipes it out all out. So much for my cruise in two years.
