Bath Mats

A few years ago, I knit some rugs for the shower. They get swapped out on a weekly basis, so each one doesn't get too much wear. When I was doing laundry on Sunday I noticed one of them was starting to fray. Today I noticed the other one was was also fraying. Not good. Trying to decide if I want to re-knit two more rugs or just buy bath mats and call it good.

Sock


Last week, I worked from home. It was an interesting experience. Not sure I would want to do it full time, but every once in a while will be nice. In today's morning meeting I was able to turn the heel on my sock. I'll be heading towards the toe in no time, just have to deal with the instep. Go sock.

Grilltech's new socks.


Socks for Perky's MIL. Her husband died recently, and I thought she needed something to help her remember people love her.


A sock for me

w00t

I'm so close to being done with this row. A good thing, because I'm tired of working on the blanket. I'll finish the row then put it away for the season. I'm day dreaming about working on my shawl, something different then endless miles of knit. I'm sure the first time I have to purl back I'll be wishing for the blanket.

I'm pretty much over the cold. Yea! Spring is mostly here, so it's time to start yard work.

List Day

  • Gas is at $2.41 per gallon
  • There was one car at the coffee shop
  • I think my left ear is clear, but now my right one is acting up
  • I hate dreaming about getting up and getting ready for work, because it makes getting out of bed that much harder
  • The trash guy came from the wrong direction, it really messes with my OCD
  • I need a new drink, trying to decide if I want more tea or a diet
  • Really? We're crossing the line after the deadline? What is the point of having a deadline if we're going to fix it anyway?
  • I went with a diet, now I'm drinking water
  • The day is almost over. Then I'm off to get an new iPad
  • Have a good night

Squares

I worked on the never-ending blanket last night, finished three squares. I've found three is the limit before my neck and shoulders get stiff. I'm getting closer to being done with this row, then I'll be posting pictures.

I've started the heel of Grilltech's second sock.

For the past three weeks I've been working with the lights burned out over my head. It was dark enough that I would want to put my head on my desk and nap. Today they replaced the lights. Now I can see all the dust bunnies living on my desk. Guess it's time to dust. :(

Blah

I am feeling better. My left ear is still blocked. Hopefully it will pop soon and I'll be able to hear out of it, instead of the constant ringing I've been hearing for days. It's very annoying.

I haven't started knitting yet. I should pick up the needles at home soon. I still knit at work, during the morning meeting. I'm about half an inch away from starting the heel on the sock. Might have this sock done by this weekend.



List Day

  • Gas is at $2.41 per gallon
  • There was no cars at the coffee shop
  • I'm feeling better, but still sick
  • Got some unhappy news about Perky
  • The waiting game sucks
  • Have a good evening

Grilltech's next sock, I need to start the second one


Sick

Tomorrow marks a week of the crud. I'm at the coughing stage and my ribs hurt already. I wish my head would clear up. I'm ready for this to be gone, like winter here. It snowed again last night, and again this morning. Ick.

I've been knitting, just not on the blanket. Been making dish clothes because of the large needles. Easier to see.

Stay healthy, because this sucks.
