Catch Up

An inversion has moved into the valley. We've been five days of grey skies. No sun, no moon, just unrelenting grey. It's no wonder why I get depressed this time of year.

I have been knitting. In fact I've got my choice of four five projects to choose from. Two blankets: one sock yarn and one cotton. Grilltech's second sock. A sock yarn Ice Queen cowl for Perky. Or my own shawl Morticia. I haven't touched Morticia in over a year, so I should do something with it soon. It seems for whatever reason, I have a hard time completing stuff for me.

We are the plague house. Grilltech has a cold. Kommadant has kidney stones that he's going to have removed on Friday. Plus he has an infected bug bite that he's reacting to the medication. He's not having a fun time. On Friday, I'm going in to have a crown replaced, because I've got cash on the medical cards that we've got to use or lose.

Plan D

A couple of months ago, I picked up an Apple Watch. I gotta say, I really like it. One of the first things I did was order a face shield for it because you know: scratches and dings.

When I got the cover, it had a bunch of air bubbles. I thought it was pretty shotty, but slapped it on the watch anyway because it's better than nothing. I've been using it for several months and never had a problem.

Last night I popped the cover off, because there was water under it. Grilltech asked about the face plate. I handed it over to him, with the comment of how crappy it was. He gave me a look, peeled off the plastic from the underside and handed it back.

The shield is clear now. And I feel like an idiot.

It's Made of Warm


On Sunday, we put the electric blanket on the bed. It has been chilly at night and I'm all about the warmth.

Anyway Uggy - the Ancient One - loves the electric blanket, almost as much as she loves good food. The animals get good food, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday's. Usually what happens is all the animals start hanging out in the living room about 1700 (5 PM). Uggy will be pretty close to me - reminding me it's good food night, if not on me until 1900 (7 PM) when I feed them. Last night, I got home and turned the bed on. I didn't see Uggy all night until I got the food dishes out at 1730 (730 PM). She sauntered out and decided I could feed her.

Lucky me.

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!

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.

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.
