There is just not much blog-able stuff going on here. I've been knitting a little on Williamsro and I ripped a sock. As noted earlier, I lost two needles from a sock and just wasn't up to picking up stitches. The last time sock stitches had to be picked up, Stacey was nearby and able to save my sock. However, she is in Texas and I'm a good thousand or more miles north in Wisconsin. This time it just got ripped. Sorry, Cookie, no sock pics this time. This lovely yarn is the yarn I won from Joan. I'll be starting again, probably using Cookie's short-row sock pattern. When I'll start is up for debate. The non-blog-able stuff is distracting me though, really, knitting should relieve stress.
A lovely surprise arrived this week's mail. Deborah sent me a Pay It Forward gift. It is a gorgeous bag and will be a well-used bag here at Purling Oaks. She did a wonderful job making this bag. It is lined with a purple/pink fabric. I really needed another sock project bag (see above...needles lost due to the lack of a project bag.) and this is a very classy bag, indeed.
Just look at the cool zipper pull!
Thank you for the lovely bag, Deborah. (and the reminder to proceed with my own PIF projects.)
I made it to Curves three times this week. I'm down another pound. Making myself have a smaller "footprint" is progressing slower than I originally planned. However, I'm making progress, so I'm still satisfied that my efforts are moving me the way I want to go. I know the additional exercise is helping me cope with the work-stress I'm encountering.
Have a good week, everyone. I mean that.
