A Crappy Weekend

16 Feb

It was a rough weekend. Dan felted some of my socks. The turkey I was going to make for Sunday’s supper was rancid. Lots of little things – every time I would try to use my computer or Bluetooth headset, they were dead because SOMEONE had borrowed them but did not plug them back in for charging! Lots of little things that kept piling up.

But it’s Monday so hopefully I’m in for a better week. Here are some pics of…. What else…. Knitting.

Dot had asked about the headband that matches those mittens I posted. The pattern is called Criss Cross Cable headband and is a free download on Ravelry.

I don’t think I ever posted a slouch hat that I made Gianna last month either.

That pattern is called The Perfect Slouch Hat and is also available free from Ravelry.

Dan ripped more holes in his slippers so I knitted up a third pair for him.

I made more progress on the alpaca scarf.

And I dyed the BFL/Southdown an aqua green.

Since they are different fibers, they took the green dye differently and look barber pole-like. I will make a scarf (again, another scarf) from that for the next project. Probably.

I’m off for Presidents’ Day. I am taking DJ back to school and making up tests that will be given this week. I’m in for a rough week. We are having our computer club PC clinic Wednesday through Friday so that means 12-hour days for me. We have previously done it on a weekend which means 12-hour days on weekends then back to work. I hope this is a better solution

    Your headband and slouch hat are incredibly good. Look like they are store bought. The headband looks really warm. Be safe driving DJ back to school and have a great week!

    Sorry, Gina, but I had to chuckle. You KNOW it’s a bad weekend when you find yourself looking forward to Monday! :0)
