I unexpectedly have a day off today and decided I have no excuse not to update you, patient blog. Work has been funny lately…not funny haha, but just a lot of hurry up, big project coming in……oh, not so much. So the good news is that I’m up and showered and ready to go bright and early, ready to face a long day of work, only to be set aside for the day and now putter away at this and that.So I went and bought fruit this morning. My son has been bugging me the last few days to get him so fresh berries so he could make smoothies, so I was off on my mission to find me some good berries (accomplished…now if he would only wake up!!) I also came home with a couple of plumcots….so I’ll be anxious to try those out. Not sure what they’ll taste like, but they were pretty.
Mm-mmm, tastes like a sweet, light plum. I like it. I first saw these at my sister’s last weekend.
Speaking of my sister, I had a great time, as usual, visiting her, my brother-in-law, my mom and a friend of ours who came up from California. We went to Snoqualmie Falls and had lunch at the lodge, we saw Mamma Mia (poor Pierce…I wonder if he’s laughing along with us) and enjoyed that…..bought a bit o’yarn….drank a wee bit o’wine….and just had a wonderful time with everybody. A good little break.
I’m still working on many projects. My twinkleberry socks are nearing completion and I just need a good afternoon to finish them off. My mom has requested the same pattern for her, so while I was there we went to the LYS and I bought this Alpaca sock yarn. Just the colours for Nana, blue, pink and green. I’ve not knit with this yarn before, nor alpaca socks, so it’ll be an adventure. I also got a coordinating pink to make a cowl for her too.
So that, dear blog, is about all I can think of right now. Yarn and fruit. I think I’ll go make some noise to wake up the teenagers.Twinkleberry Socks Pattern
