Today I am flying to Florida to be with my parents, and then my Diva Girl. Can. Not. Wait. I just want to hug her and see her smiling face. It’s been over 2 months since I saw her last. And being in the bright sunshine of FL won’t hurt at all. Hoping the warmth might make the arthritis in the hip a lot better.
As to the hip, the pain is still at a high level. Hubster won’t even sleep with me anymore due to the moaning and groaning, and, tossing and turning. Poor guy. He just needs silence and peace to sleep. I am trying to go forth with a positive attitude and would appreciate prayers for strength!
The knitting has been sparse due to the upheaval in our lives. On Sunday I drove north to set up temp housing at my sister’s. Next week we will hopefully finalize plans to build our home. And then it’s 5-6 months before we will move in. The only thing altering that plan would be if the realtor finds the perfect house at the price we want. Since I have been searching for 3 months now and have not found it, I doubt it’s out there for us. I have found wonderful homes, but not the one I want. And the only issue with the house we want to build is, they won’t change the location of the sink/dishwasher and the cook top. I want my cook top on the island, not my sink. Oh well, it’s a small sacrifice to get everything else we have asked for.
The baby sweater is slogging along. I think I don’t want to knit on it because my calculations were off and I don’t like how the cables are meeting at the raglan. I should have just stopped and made it a set in sleeve instead. But I am trying to do as much as possible on the needles and don’t have the confidence to do a mock set in sleeve. But I now have Ann Budd’s book and plan to do one of the sweaters from it to gain that confidence.
So this hat is all I have to show. It’s Snow Bunnies and is the first of four I will be doing this Winter. Just too cute! I did Reindeer hats 2 yeas ago, so needed another animal motif this year. I am pondering though, do I make tiny pom-poms or bobbles for the bunny tails? I don’t think my smallest pom-pom maker is tiny enough, need to see if I can find a wee sized on. Bobbles? How I HATE bobbles!!! But they would be stronger and not lose their shape as easily. What say you? I can’t have naked butts!!
And one more thing to cry about, today is the first of many where I will not be able to knit with my friends!! I can’t justify driving 3 hours south every Wednesday to knit. 2 hours, maybe, 3, no. But I will be back in town twice in November, so def knitting then.
So, what’s on your needles? Today I am in a plane, likely knitting on these mittens.
