Got some good knitting time in

Well, this week, I have been attending to family business. I really enjoyed hanging out with them, but as far as the business, I would have enjoyed looking at used rvs for sale more. I might possibly have enjoyed Chinese Water Torture more, too, but at least it is over!

Right before I left, I finished the knitting on the Clapotis. I need to weave in the ends and wash and block it, and then I can send it on it’s way.

I also bought myself some yarn. I didn’t intend to do so, and in fact I was shopping for other people, but ACMoore didn’t have what they had asked for. They did, however, have some yarn on sale for 1.99 a ball. I bought 5 or 6 of the pink/green and 3 of the blue/green. The colors are a little off here, they are very pretty in person, I assure you.

They are for ME. I’m thinking one of them may become a Clapotis for me, because I just love the way the one I made looks wrapped around my own shoulders. Just sayin’

While I was doing the business I didn’t want to do, I was a bit nervous. Maybe more than a bit. I was in fact so nervous that I started a hat at 9:30 am and by 4:30, I had knit about 7inches. And I took an hour and a half for lunch and another 30 minutes to be intently involved in the business with no yarn in my hands. While I was knitting to relieve my stress, my cousin was sitting beside me pulling the yarn off the ball for me to relieve his. I wish I had a picture of that!!! He also talked me into making a hat for him, which wasn’t very difficult, I suppose.

Pics of the FOs soon!
