It has been a very taxing week for me and the kids. My daughter became sick early Saturday morning and it has been a chore! She caught the same thing that I had a couple of weeks ago but for her, as small as she is, it seemed worse. When I was sick, she kept kissing me (she is no way shape or form stingy with her kisses either!) and wanting to snuggle in hopes that it would make me feel better. I protested, I felt bad about it, but I guess I didn’t do it enough because she still got sick. It was so bad that I had to take her to the hospital on Sunday. Now she is doing better but she still has a cough. Going to see the doc tomorrow morning for a follow up. I thank God that so far, I haven’t had to pay for anything in regards to this….Lord knows I wouldn’t have been able to pay it.
I did get some knitting done and doubled the size of my daughters’ scarf. I think that it is coming along nicely.
I only have a short way to go before I am done. I really want to get started on some house slippers that I found on Ravelry. I found three free patters that I want to make but can only make two of them since I don’t have DPNs or circular needles.
I found the Bulky Yarn Booty,
(which are both worked flat),and Elf Shoes
(which I will make once I get a set of DPNs. Aren’t they adorable?! There goes an idea for Christmas parties!!). I also have some fabric paint to help stop the skidding on the wood flooring. They love to run around and when they are in socks they usually fall and bust their behinds. Heh heh!
I also found something, well…I didn’t find it but Sandy of Sanderellas did, I came across it that would help other crocheters and knitters out there who have trouble organizing their projects, stash and notions. Even though my stash is miniscule compared to others, I still don’t know what I have in my stash. I think these journal pages created by Kathryn Ivy will help tremendously. Each page comes with an explanation as to their use. So you can download all or just the ones that you need. I’ve saved them all since I am prone to ideas all the time, even though I have no idea where to start with a lot of them! I am going to start mine today, at least get my stash documented that way I don’t have to guess as to what I have or what I don’t have.
Well I hope all is well with you all and you are enjoying your day. I am going to take a mini break and get on to inventory.
