Dear Snowdrop is moving along quite nicely, FINALLY! I have made a mistake here and there, and once in a while I end up with an extra stitch somehow, but sort of just flub it and most people wouldn’t even notice. There is one (very) noticeable mistake, where I forgot to do a YO, but I opted not to rip back to the previous lifeline, because I just didn’t feel like it. And it might only be (very) noticeable to me, and not everyone. I figure I’m allowed that ‘intentional’ mistake, right? 🙂
I also started the MS3 clue today. My aunt found a gahundred bags of yarn at a thrift store near where she lives, and bought a ton of it and sent it to me. There were quite a few cones of some fingering weight cotton yarn (I assume it’s fingering weight…..it is quite delicate looking) and I’m using that. It’s a tan color, and I REALLY like it. It’s not very far a long yet, a few of the people in the group are already done with the first clue, I’m not even half done with the first chart (there are 3). I’m not too worried though, I’m not in a race to the finish, and if I’m not done with the first clue by the time the second comes out, I won’t be too concerned. Dear Snowdrop is first and foremost right now (for home knitting…the “away” knitting is socks.) So the MS3 only gets little Snowdrop breaks here and there, which is fine with me. That one seems a little more complicated looking than Dear Snowdrop and so I don’t mind taking my time with it.
I actually got the hubster to go to the library today! I think he’s read a total of 5 books since we got married, 8 1/2 years ago. All of them were by Dan Brown. Today, I said “I’d love it if you went to the library with us” and he sort of hesitated, and I whined and won 🙂 And he even checked out a book!!! I can’t remember what it’s called, he likes a different genre of books than I do. I’m into the mysteries and historical stuff, and he likes mythical stuff and fantasy settings. I got a James Patterson book and he talked me into a Stephan King book as well, because he wanted me to read the first story in it. It’s The Skeleton Key, and he says the first story is great. I’m not a huge Stephan King fan, but I figured what the heck, if hubster can get a book, I can read SK 🙂 The James Patterson is the 2nd in the Women’s Murder Club series. It’s not right in front of me, so I can’t remember what it’s called….2nd Chance (I googled it!) I really love reading JP and LOVE the Alex Cross series!! I also like some of Greg Iles’ books, if you like a good mystery, check him out 🙂
Well, it’s late (or early, since it’s now morning!) and I should get on with going to bed. I’ve always had this thing about going to bed late….if I go to bed early, I might miss out on something. So I always stay up late. My friend Stefanie asked me what I could possibly miss out on when most of the world is sleeping, and I told her “I don’t know, but at least I’ll be awake to find out, and tell you about it!” LOL Nothing ever happens, though. But you just never know, and I’m not gonna miss out on it!!
Have a great day!
