I washed my socks recently. Methinks I need some more socks this year!
Yeah, that’s a hole. I thought it was more than one strand, but thankfully it was only one.
All fixed! Had me quite worried for awhile.
Yesterday, the Boy and I were in San Diego. His jobs tend to include a lot of traveling, and I usually go if I’m not busy/he asks me to go. Just because it’s fun and different from spending time at our homes and it’s exploring. I generally hate spontaneity, but when it’s with him, it’s a bit more okay.
So after he finished his job, he decided to ask one of his friends to lunch. (By the way, Lit’l Pepper has delicious sandwiches.) Somehow the conversation turned to knitting and crocheting (the Boy likes to do that to me) and his friend recalled a yarn bombing at a nearby library. The Boy asked me if I wanted to go check it out, and I said yes.
Kensington-Normal Heights Library a really cute old library with a playground. We had a ton of fun there.
The Boy is learning to tell if a fabric is knit or crochet.
We went inside and I made him read one of my favorite children’s stories. Suffice it to say, I’m glad he makes me laugh because he’s so ridiculous, but it’s really hard to be quiet while laughing in a library.
Goodness, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. The whole month of September was so busy for me, I didn’t have much time to knit. October should be better.
I really want to share with you what I’ve been up to, though it’s not exactly crafty, it does go along with my passion of making things. The Boy’s mom has been in Taiwan for the last 2 weeks and before she left, she put us in charge of her garden. It’s been a blast taking care of it with the Boy but we definitely needed to use the produce.
Anyway, on Saturday, since we had a ton of tomatoes, we decided to make tomato sauce with noodles. The Boy cut up a big tomato and maybe 7 small ones. Then he added a bit of wine, because that’s what some of the recipes called for. He just eyeballed it.
Since it would take awhile for it to turn to mush, he played his game while I read my book and checked on it. The smell of wine was really strong and I was a bit worried that it would taste too much like alcohol.
Stinkey just loves chilling with us.
Crocheting is still happening.
But I took a little break and sewed a simple tube skirt. It’s still a WIP because I plan to embroider the edge, but it’s still wearable.
Pardon the bad picture, one of my kids took it. Haha.
I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but all I could share would have been yet another stack of squares. I took this photo on Saturday. Pardon the ugly mess everywhere around the blanket.
I’m slowly filling in that space with squares. It’s getting there! That’s 120 squares right there; 180 more to go!
I lost my hook at the beach on Saturday. I heard it fall but I thought it fell into my bag, so when I got home and couldn’t find it, I knew exactly what had happened.
Incidents with my tools always happen around the Boy.
I’m serious. I’ve snapped two needles at his house before this. I guess I’m just more accident prone around him.
Anyway, I digress. I’ve already misplaced my hook earlier this project, and missing that week of work was torture, so I immediately went to buy a new one.
Not as gorgeous a blue as the old one, but oh well. That’s the price I pay for not being careful.
