Next week Dennis is on vacation and I’m looking forward to that. We are staying here in the area because we have appointments scattered throughout the week. Most of the week will be at the lake with us driving back-and-forth for doctors and car appointments. I hope he has a chance to get some good sleep and we plan on reading and watching movies. A pure relaxation vacation. I have my next Botox injection on Monday afternoon and I’m glad he will be able to go with me to that appointment.
A few days ago I reached into my gift box for a dishcloth to give away and lo and behold I was out! How did that happen? So I have spent some time this week knitting up a few more.
I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton, and I can get two dishcloths from a skein with a little ball of yarn left over.
I also made a few more burial buntings for the hospital.
I have a pair of socks on the needles for Mandy. I’m going to make a matching pair for Piper. I’m using the Hermione pattern. Mandy just finished reading her the first Harry Potter book and she loves Hermione. Mandy‘s favorite color is orange so I thought I would make these using Knit Picks Stroll Tweed in the Persimmon colorway.
There is the beautiful fountain by the little store at the lake. I could not get a good picture of it but there is a metal sculpture of a man flyfishing and a fountain in the middle. There are gorgeous flowers all around. To the left you can see some of the little cabins that are available for rent.
Many of you made very nice comments on my dresses in my last post. All three are made with the same pattern. It is the New Look pattern, number 6352. I have had it for years and years and I’m not sure it’s still available. I have made so many dresses with this pattern that I have worn some of the pieces out. When I called Joannes they told me they no longer carry it but I was able to find one on Amazon in my size. I even make dresses for in the winter time because the pattern comes with an option for sleeves. I prefer dresses because they are so comfortable. My legs are so long it’s hard to find jeans long enough for me. :-)
I hope you’re all having a wonderful week and that it is a big cooler for all of you over on the East Coast and in the Midwest. I know it was brutal for you last week.
