IT'S MY PERROGATIVE!

It is so nice to wake up and see this guy each morning!  This is a pipe Bill drove in the ground ages ago to hold up a hanging pot and this guy (or one of his predecesors!) moved right in!  
I bought this book for Mom a while ago and had fun looking through it with her on the visit;  I like it so much, I bought one for myself!  I think it is a great springboard for sample blocks, one large afghan or for making dishcloths!  I bought it on Amazon. The yarn recommended in the book is Cascade 220 Merino Superwash which is a DK yarn.  I am going to use the new yarn I bought for the crochet afghan but I am going to use it for this instead!
Simply because I want to!
And this pair of socks.....I ripped out what I had done because it just didn't fit well.   The cable made it draw in uncomfortably and the length just eluded me.  I am now knitting it as a vanilla sock and I did the math again for the sock cheat sheet--I can't find the one I have used for years anywhere!  I didn't hesitate to rip out;  that sock has given me fits and now I have purged myself of the irritation! lol

  1. Nothing like a good rip out. It seems like yesterday was rip out day around here for sewing projects. Nothing was behaving. I'll have to start fresh today.

  3. Frogging is one of the benefits of knitting!

  4. Sometimes we just need to give up on a project and forge a new path. Much easier with knitting than sewing. LOL!

  5. Although I don't enjoy ripping out something I've spent time knitting, it's better than never being able to use the finished project.
    I like the looks of that book. I think it would be fun to check out all of those blocks. I'm glad we're both home and ready to begin fall, aren't you?
    Blessings,

FOR THE NON-HAT-WEARERS!

I know, I make so many hats but I hate to wear them--only in a blizzard will you find me wearing one since I got glasses--20+ years ago! lol...
