Just knitting on...

A record of my knitting projects and events of my life

Wednesday, November 05, 2008


I woke up feeling much better about the world this morning, knowing that Barack Obama is our President-Elect. George Bush and the republican party have left this country in a terrible state. This isn't a political blog, so that's all I'll say about this. I'm also relieved that all the campaigning is over! Living in a "battle ground" state is not a lot fun. I am sick of negative ads or even more positive ones, and getting robocalls up to ten times a day. Just sayin.

I'm almost done with the Old Navy socks. I'm working on the toe of the second sock. Here is a picture of the first one.

I did some stash diving to see what colors I had in Knitpicks Pallette and came up with this.
It's the yarn needed for the next project, the Sea Mineral Mittens. I've actually started the first mitten, but haven't got around to taking a picture yet.

I'll be dog sitting for my Mom and Dad's dog, Chelsea, next week while they are vacationing in Mexico. I'm going to take the week off work, and just be home with my dog and Chelsea, so hopefully I'll post more often next week. It will be a good chance to get some chores done at home. I really should do some silver polishing before Thanksgiving comes too. I'll be cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my parents, my son, my brother, and probably a few more relatives. And I need to plan a Holiday Party with a friend for our Gourmet Group. It should be a busy week and a good change from work.

The sox are so pretty and the pattern very interesting....can't wait to see the Sea Mineral Mittens as I love the colors.

Enjoy your week off....there is something very rewarding about polishing silver and it reminds me of doing it with my mother and grandmother before our holiday celebrations. I still do it, too!
