I finished the first sock with my West Yorkshire Spinners yarn. I have the cuff started on the second sock, but I’ve set it aside temporarily. I really like the way the pattern and colors change with this yarn.
This is why I said I set the sock aside for now. Yesterday I started this baby sweater for our new little granddaughter. It’s a new pattern to me and I think it is so sweet. It’s called the “Max Baby Cardigan” and is on Ravelry. I have a pattern for a newborn hat that has cables and I think I’ll make that for her too. Maybe I will have time to find the yarn to make a coordinating blanket. I know it won’t fit her very long as it’s a 0 to 3 months size, but I fell in love with this cute pattern and the sweet little cables. Obviously I still have the sleeves to do. Maybe I will get those done today since I’m not going anywhere! Then I need to find some cute buttons.
The next photo is my view right at the moment. I have music playing on YouTube that is set to winter scenes. I love the quiet music while I am sitting here in my cozy little space. As you can see, I have a great view of my yarn wall and there’s lots of room for Zoey to play. That pink playpen thing? We bought it when we first got her to keep her contained in the kitchen or wherever we were that we couldn’t keep a close eye on her. That didn’t last long. Very quickly a hole formed in the bottom. But both her and Lizzie love to play with it. It was the best toy we could have gotten for them! They go in the door and turn it on its side and they run around the entire room inside it like a hamster wheel! It is hilarious. They know how to close it in on themselves so all of the sides collapse and then they climb out and try to pull it open again. Zoey takes her food in there to eat. Hours of entertainment for all of us! Puppies are so funny.
And that puppy bed? Well, she does lay in it sometimes when I put it in the sunshine by the front door if it’s nice enough to have the door open, but most of the time you can find her in one of our our laps, sound asleep. She wants to be as close to us as she can get and we like that too.
I just realized as I wrote that last paragraph that this has turned into a puppy blog, almost more than a knitting blog. I’m so sorry about that for those of you who aren’t interested. I just pretty much write about my life and hope, that for some reason, you all find it interesting enough to come back and visit with me again.
Our master bathroom has hit a snag. Dennis took the vanity and toilet out over the weekend because the contractor and electrician were supposed to be here early Monday morning. Would you believe they both completely forgot? I texted the contractor in the evening on Monday and he admitted they had forgotten. They stopped yesterday for about 10 minutes just to look at the job and remind themselves of what needed done. It sounds like someone may be here next Monday. It’s a good thing we cancelled the floor people. They were supposed to be here this week refinishing our hardwood floors. And that was allowing several extra weeks for the bathrooms to be finished! We are rescheduled now for the floors the week of Valentine’s Day. I sure hope everything is done after that. I do know that remodeling never goes according to plan and when you’re told a month, you should allow three!
I know a lot of you have snow predicted for the next day or two. Be careful out there and stay safe and warm.
Blessings and love,
