I realized on Thurdsday (the day after my last posting) that the reason that I was so crabby and out of sorts, was because I was getting sick. I'm not feeling terrible, just really achy all over, especially all my joints. I went home from work early that day to get some rest. Luckily, the next 2 days (Friday and today) have both been very slow days at work, and I've only had to work half days.
This posting will be full of lots of unrelated but fun things!
1. Proof that I actually cook sometimes! I made Stuffed Zucchini for a dinner on Labor Day. This was taken after stuffing it, but before baking. I got the recipe here
but made a few changes. They were a hit. Yummy!
2. Dahlias from my yard!
3. I realized that I never posted a picture of the socks that I made from the Noro Silk Garden Yarn. I took so many pictures, and NONE of them accurately showed the beautiful colors! They were finished in March (during my long break from blogging).
4. Progress on the pinwheeel: Done with the loopy edge, started on the first sleeve, and finished only 4 rounds before becoming distracted but all the other projects...
5. Proof that SSS hasn't really taken ahold of me again! I've started on the second fair isle sock (even tho I said that I would finish the pinwheel first...)
6.However, my case of ADD has kicked in. Sherri
got some new sock yarn
today. I nearly started drooling!! This is wonderful stuff! After much thought I chose: Fly Super Sport, color: Ruby Redmond. This picture is the best of the 5 or 6 that I took and NONE of them turned out good. The colors are actually BEAUTIFUL!!! (Light and dark pinks, and dark brown).
(Added later: I was telling a friend about this website that I found. I used it to help convert the Green Gable pattern. I haven't yet cast on. So I don't know how helpful it actually is. But it seems useful.)
