So here I sit. It’s 2:19 am and I was just looking at some knitting books. My dilemma? What to make next. There are so many projects I want to start that I haven’t been able to make up my mind. Since I’m not the fastest knitter you’ll ever meet, I should start working on Christmas pressies. I found a pattern for the prettiest leaf-shaped wash/dishcloth and I thought they would make a nice little present. I’ll be making a batch of soap and sending that as well, and they would be nice wrapped around a bar of handmade soap. It would make a nice little pressie for a couple friends, too. I would love to make my sister something really pretty to wear, but not sure enough of my knitting skills to make the ones I’ve seen. It would have to be very lightweight and gauzy since she lives in Florida and, for some reason unknown to me, she didn’t really want a pair of nice warm wool socks. lol. I did make her a lovely pair of socks that were very lightweight and she liked those a lot.
Then there is the shawl I want to make for myself for when I’m sitting at the comp and its chilly. Course that would take a bit, I think, and I should really be doing the Christmas stuff first.
Well, I guess I answered my own question… Christmas stuff first. LOL. I know this is not rocket science, but with so much to make, so many patterns to look at, so many things I can “see” myself in… it’s not easy!
I’ve started my dehydrating. I dehydrated about 15 peppers, and will be getting some more since I use them a LOT and my supply was low. I also dehydrated a 10 lb. bag of taters. Not sure I’ll get more of those, but it’s always nice to have a few on hand to toss into stew if you run out of the raw ones.
I was thinking of adding a recipes category. I like to cook and it’s always fun to share recipes.
With that decided, I can throw my thoughts towards the storm heading our way. We live in NW Mass and while the coast is going to get the storm surges, the meat of the storm, albeit a tropical storm by then, is going right over our heads. We are going to get 6-8 inches of rain and quite high winds. I may be knitting a lot over the next couple days. 😉 At least its not going to be snow! lol. We are so not ready for winter yet at the house.
Winding down for now. This was not precisely a ground breaking post, but life is not always ground breaking either. Sometimes it just pleasantly normal. Ta for now. I really want to do a post about a book I just finished reading, so will try to do that tomorrow.
