Two days late posting isn't bad!! I have been trying to post on Monday's, but Husband-unit was home on Monday, so that messed up the schedule. I took all three dogs to the vet on Monday, so they were all sick yesterday. We did a lot of snuggle time. Thought that was more important than blogging.
As you can see, Autumn Rose if finished. It is a little big, but not so much so that it is a problem. If I was going to reknit it, I would make it a size smaller.
I finished it while watching Bleak House on DVD. It is from the BBC, based on a Charles Dickens book. I enjoyed it a lot. It started a little slow, but ends up very good. Besides it gave me almost 8 hours of knitting time!!! How bad can it be?
We got a little snow but not enough to really count. I want a really good snow. One where all the adult neighbors go out to play in it.
I have also joined The Quilt Show online. The shows are good. I sit at my computer, watch the show and knit something mindless. So I am learning and knitting. Again, how bad can it be.
I leave for Nags Head in the morning. We are doing a quilting/knitting weekend down there. Hope to get the background for my Ladies of the Sea quilt while I am down there.
I finally finished Glenn Beck's book. It was funny and scary. He really knows how to say things so they get your attention. Even if you don't agree with his politics, he makes a lot of good points. I started Murder in the Heartland last night. Haven't read enough to know how it is yet.
Have also started playing with my geneology. This is fun but another time gobbler!!!
I got a Woolee Winder for my spinning wheel. Now I have to spin and quit putting it off!!!
Somebody please walk by so I can bark at you!!!
