I had the occasion to call the Sheriff's Dept this afternoon. Hubby found out that someone had lifted his GPS unit right out of his console in the truck, so he told me to go check to see if mine was there.
It wasn't. It was taken out of the glove compartement after they had opened the console to look for it there. Both the console and the glove compartment were wide open. They must have come in the middle of the night because we didn't see anyone around this morning nor last night before we went to bed.
I suppose if we had locked our vehicles we'd still have them, but as it were, they were parked in our own driveway so we didn't lock them.
My next GPS will be a Tomtom that I can slip into my purse!
I'm almost done with the yoke of the February Lady Sweater. Just a few more increase rows and I can figure out the eyelet row.
Started a new scarf yesterday. I cast on 112 stitches of one yarn on size 6 needles, did garter stitch for 5 rows, then attached another yarn in a matching color and did a 2 x 2 rib by knitting or purling 2 tog across the row with size 4 needles to end up with 56 stitches. By doing this I have a nice ruffle along the short side of the scarf. Will post a pic when I get farther along on it.
Got a few more rows done on the gator scarf.
Yesterday was workshop day at the Yarn Nook, and I worked on my lace shawl for a while. Got all of pattern 8 done, and a few rows of pattern 9. There are 13 patterns in all, so I'm almost there! After all 13 sections are done, then I have to add a border to the sides.
Also in progress are the Tootie Frootie socks . I posted a pic previously.
These are the socks I started after finishing the Diamantes. I'm using a pattern from the book "Socks a la Carte" called Oh, Baby! but I think I'll call these "Tootie Frootie" instead. The colors in the yarn remind me of Tutti Frutti ice cream for some reason.
What do you think? BTW, the yarn has metallic sparklies in it, but you can't see them in the picture. I took it with the camera in my cell phone.
Recently, mother-in-law was wearing a pair of socks I gave her, and someone asked her about them. When she told the person I had made them, the lady said "Oh, I want to learn how to knit socks!". Evidently she already knits, but has never knitted socks.
The lady in question is a relative of my mother-in-law, but I've never met her. She's a librarian in a Catholic school, so she'll probably wait until summer. And she also lives in another town 20 minutes from here.
Today (Sunday) I'm going with a friend to a Red Hat luncheon. It's really the annual mother/daughter luncheon for a chapter I belong to, but since my daughter lives in AZ now, I'm taking one of the gals in the other chapter I belong to.
After sitting at the local yarn shop all day I finally finished the mate to the one I posted about previously. Here you see them mounted on Sarah's feet. I promised these socks to Sarah at the birthday party we had for her at the shop. She loves them!
If they look darker in this pic, it's because I took the pic with my cell phone, not my camera. I also darkened the picture a bit with a photo editor.
