Hint one done!

Hint one done!

SOTS III hint one is finished, as you can see. I was no where near the fastest as I think someone finished late friday night. But considering it took me over a month to do hint one on SOTS II, (due to health and family issues not lack of knitting ability), I am happy with my timing. I had to take several breaks to rest my wrists as my carpel tunnel/osteo-authritus is a bit agrivated.  Anyway it’s done, now what do I do until friday when hint two comes out? 

I’ll use the extra crochet hook that I bought, the size 30 crochet cotton thread, and crochet some lace. I bought red thread so that if this stole doesn’t come out as something my mother would both wear and take proper care of, (I love my mom but if that dog is gonna be allowed to waller on the stole she aint gonna get it if you know what I mean!), I can atleast crochet something lacey for her. Now I am off to find lace doily patterns.

Homefront and Beyond

Things are much improved at home. Kiddo started his senior year of high school, my baby is growing up. DH still vegitates in front of tv and little else, but that’s not likely to change anytime soon. I go to group therapy 3 times a week when I can, and I am the one who decides when I can and can’t go not dh!

No. 1 son is having major troubles. He needs helps but doesn’t think so, so he’s not getting it. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers, he realy needs them right now. (This is all I can say on the matter.)

I am 3/4 done with hint one of “Secrets Of The Stole III” (SOTC III) and it only came out yesturday! I want to get it finished today/tomorrow at latest, then I’ll post a picture here and mention it on the SOTS III list that pic is up. If I am lucky, and that’s not likely, I might be one of the hint completion winners this friday! Yup, I wouldn’t mind getting me some of that there knitterly booty!!!

Well that’s it untill I finish knitting SOTS III hint one and post the picture. Take care, and remember mine in your prayers. God and Goddess bless.

SOTS III

SOTS III SWATCH blocking

SOTS III SWATCH blocking

I finished my “Secrets Of The Stole II” (SOTS II), “Menapausal Blues”,  just two weeks ago! It’s currently with the LYS Owner, Ms Fran, to be blocked. This timing is a good thing as SOTS III starts next friday! The above is a picture of my SOTS III swatch as it’s blocking.

Now the swatch is be 5.5″ X 7.5″ but mine came out 7.5″ X 9.5″. I do knit a bit looser and my yarn is on the larger end of being lace weight. Besides, when I have the stole blocked I will likely just have it blocked to shape and not stretched (swatch is stretched) like I did “Menapausal Blues”, or ‘Savannah’ aka SOTS II. I’ll post SOTS II pic when it’s back from blocking.

I’ll post general update at another time.
