Fridays Feast 6/01/07

Wow, it's Friday already. Where did the week go? It went way too fast, that's for sure. Seems the older I get, the faster the weeks go.

Last night I started the Monkey Sock. It took awhile. I had to find my one missing size 3 needle. (pattern calls for size 2 but I don't own that size-oddly enough. All those needles I brought home from the shop and nary a one was a 2.) I knit socks on 2 circular needles. I hate double points. Anyway, after searching for over an hour, turning the house upside down, in one last act of desperation I took all the size 4's out of the needle case and checked them with the needle gau
ge. I'd put the 3 in with the 4's. (Insert picture of me banging head on wall here-if there is such a thing.) In the process I did find my missing skein of Plymouth Sockotta sock yarn, plus the Opal I'd bought on Ebay. So that was a good thing. Oh, and I found the size 000 double points I bought ages and ages ago (before socks on circular needles) for a pair of lace socks I still want to make. Now all my needles are properly in their cases. Hurray!

I cast on the stitches and got about 6 rounds done on the Monkey Socks before bed time.

Name something you think is “the best.”
My sweet hubby, Doug. He's the person who taught me what unconditional love is. Christians talk about Jesus telling us to love. My husband lives by love. He puts most Christians to shame. He supports me 100% in my endeavors-no matter how ridiculous. He respects me, loves me for who I am, lets me be me. He's so kind. He also spoils me rotten. He's tall and cuddly and has the best kisses in the universe. One of the things I adore is the fact that I knit is one of the things that attracted him to me because his mother knitted too. Isn't that sweet? Marrying him was the single BEST thing I've done my whole life.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 highest), how stressed are you today?

About 6. I have to take Tommy to the vet this morning, hopefully to get that nasty drain tube out. Yech! I hate drain tubes! Then later I have to drive down to Moscow to get my daughter Ruth, who is returning from the Geology field trip. I have to meet her in a small parking lot across the street from the west side of the Kibbie Dome. I'm anxious cos I don't know my way around campus and will probably have to look a bit before I find said parking lot.


What kind of cleanser do you use to wash your face?

Soap and water. Sometimes Apri apricot scrub.
