Hello. How’re you this Sunday?
Life is good right now. Our Thanksgiving break (Cupcake and Jellybean have all of next week off and their dad took the week off as well.) is off to a lovely start! Last night the four of us watched “Kubo and the Two Strings” which was good and different in an interesting way. Today, late morning, we hit the matinée showing of (ヾ(◍’౪`◍)ﾉﾞ♡ Loved it!) “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” After filling up on Korean food, I buzzed my man’s hair and gave him a medium fade. This is why I’m posting late for YOP1617.
Not much progress has been made this week because I’ve been concentrating on finishing the last Christmas sock:
You can tel that I’ve knitted more stockinette rounds for the body before waist shaping. After hearing the two cents of a few knitters, I’ve decided I was going to knit six inches instead of seven first and then start waist shaping. I found this blog post during Googling.
However, I just noticed something. Do you see it? I didn’t notice it while I was knitting the additional body rounds, but after taking that photo above just minutes ago, I realized the second skein is showing up different in shade and these skeins are from the same dye lot (◎ ◎)ゞ- ack! From the underarms down is about five inches. There would be another 2.75″ of this skein before colorwork starts. Do I rip some back to incorporate the second skein or should I leave it? ٩(๑`ȏ´๑)۶ Bloody hell, I am not happy about this potential setback.
On a positive note, at least I’m not stressed out right now for Thanksgiving. It’s such a nice change. We are not having the traditional dinner with the Ng’s this year as my parents won’t be back yet. The four of us are having dinner out with the girls’ Ninoong and Ganma, my godsons, and family of the ganma on the peninsula. So next week, I don’t know if I’ll be around. I’d like to take the week off from blogging but may schedule a few posts to bring everything up to date.
Okay; I need my green tea while I ponder in the back of my mind what the heck am I gonna do about Plastic Flamingo on the Lawn. If I don’t pop my head in, to my American readers. Happy Thanksgiving. *gobble gobble* May only laughter and happiness fill this holiday for you and your loved ones and may your belly bulge from oinkin’ out. I’m truly thankful for you all, old and new followers, as it means a lot to me that you take time out of your busy lives to kick it with me here. o(*’▽’*)/☆ﾟ’ Bye!
