Part Two

Hi All. At the risk of boring most of you, just an added comment about the previous knitting musings! I evidently was on a formerly well traveled path, with the "thoughts" I mentioned--about a way to cast-on my stitches. I gave it a try, and I think that is how I must have always done it in the past. I had just forgotten, after not having knitted in eons. However, I didn't think it worked too well with the cotton yarn, once the actual knitting got started. So, I switched and tried the other method I mentioned, which is the one that I seem to be seeing everywhere. It worked out just fine this time. I guess I have my "knitting fingers" back??? I think it probably acted about the same, once the actual knitting started, as the other cast-on did, but I didn't pay any attention to it and it was fine once the first row was well started. I guess that is just one of the little differences with the cotton yarn? In any case, I guess in future I can use either method and will have good results. It won't affect national security, the environment, or world economics, but it was important to me, and ultimately to the recipients of future knitting projects, so I was glad to get it all sorted out!

We actually managed to avoid rain till tonight after getting Anne from work, so that was nice! It is always nice when Mother Nature puts her "Camelot" shield over us----as in the musical, where it only rains at night? (Or was it actually supposed to be after midnight? I don't mind if it is before midnight, since we usually aren't out and about!) Some you of will have an inkling of what I am talking about!!!!!

Not much else to write about, I guess. I guess I need to start doing more exciting things, take some classes, do something, so I will have more interesting things to talk about??? Perhaps also start a quilting/knitting/craft blog, so you don't all have to either be bored or skip parts of my blog when I get off on these subjects!!

Unless something really interesting happens tomorrow, perhaps I will get back to some of the long postponed topics inspired by my trip to Germany! I know you will all be waiting with baited breath---hahahaha. Take care and more tomorrow!

Well you and I need to do our very own Knit A Long, as I am going to start a Christmas stocking for a friend who hinted she'd like one. She's a good friend, and I have everything I need. So are you in? When would you like to start? We could work along together - not a race for the finish or anything.

Glad you are not seeing Dennis at his worst. Thank goodness.

If you've read my blogs, you know what I'm up too - we're wishing we could go see the house tomorrow, but it would be a real waste of gas since we are going Wednesday anyhow. Just anxious to see what's going on.
