It's been a busy time for me. So let's do a run down.

  • On Labor Day, Grilltech, Eldest, Kommandant, and I all played the final game of Pandemic Legacy. We lost the game, simply because we had bad luck with outbreaks. Kommandant and Grilltech was over in Asia clearing out the faded. I was running around treating diseases before they got out of hand, and the middle east just kept exploding. (I never made it to the middle east, I was on my way.) At the end of the game, you total up points to see how well you did. We didn't do so well, the world collapsed on our watch. So, the lesson learned? Don't depend on us to save the world.
  • On the 15th, Perky and I went and saw Blink 182. I didn't realize they only had three members. I don't really watch their video's, I just have a lot of their MP3's. It was loud, there was a mosh pit (that Perky and I was no where near), and I really had a good time. If they come again, I'd go again.
  • RHCP have announced a tour for 2017. I'm going to have to go Seattle in March to see them. I'm debating if I want to buy tickets this far out or not.
  • Tonight Grilltech, Taxtech, Dusty, and I are going to Jackpot to gamble for Taxtech and Grilltech's birthdays. There will be feasting and drinking while gambling. And possible sightings of the sock doing odd things
  • Hope everyone has a safe and fun weekend

Finished two wash clothes

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.
