*stretches* ٩(´Д` ;)۶:.* Well hello there. Is your internal clock feelin’ like mine – groggy? Why can’t Daylight Savings start on a Saturday so we’d at least have two days to adjust? I don’t know why these ppl don’t think these things through.
Other than that, our crew had a fun time up in the city yesterday. My mum hosted a belated (schedule conflicts) birthday dinner for my brother who had turned the big 4-0 end of February. She was inspired to make an early Easter dinner of corned beef, cabbage, carrots, and mashed potatoes. I put together a 6-layer dip appetizer after inquiring after my brother’s preference. There were also baked shrimp with cocktail sauce + cheese and crackers. Dessert was Baskin Robbins mint chocolate chip ice cream roll cake, J’s favorite and thumbprint cookies made by the tween. What a delightful gathering we had, catching up and watching my four-year old niece boss around Jellybean while the tween watched over my two-year old nephew. I of course held my newest nephew for a while, talking to him. I got some smiles and cooing!
I’m happy to report progress is still running alongside my knitting! Last Sunday I told you I was on round 20 of the colorwork chart. I am currently on the third to last round!
Can you see how those green triangles are taller? I really love how they stand out in this WIP.
Once I get this part done I’ll move onto the sleeves which are really short and not much work at all. I can see the finish line!
Here’s the second of Speckle Me Waffles:
I’m feeling a bit bummed because my Box of Sox KAL participation has been slow. I know that’s the perfectionist in me as I have high expectations of whatever I do. However, I know I’m doing what I can and that lots has been goin’ on in life.
I have three more repeats of the four-row stitch pattern. After the first set, I had switched my knitting to the Portuguese style. I told myself, enough with the separate practice of Portuguese knitting. I need to jump in and can do so with this sock WIP. I can tell my gauge is a little tighter but that’s okay. I’m happy knitting away while waiting in the car during pick up sessions.
It’s 11:47 a.m. here. Jellybean is eagerly awaiting for me to finish so we can watch Alice Through the Looking Glass, a movie we missed in the theaters last year and one her and her sister spotted on Netflix or Amazon recently during a bout of TV watching. So off I must go and start the air popper! Thank you very much for your past visits. Have a good Sunday and TTYL.
