My knitting gets in the way if other things. Like I totally need to be focusing on schoolwork and practicals and I’ve been wasting time on this beautiful pattern. It’s called Abalone (look it up on ravelry!) I want to finish it so badly but I need to put it down and do more important things so badly too. Gah. Choices are so hard to make. Fashion and failing or…. Work?
I just got back from a trip from Bay Shore, Long Island, New York. It was a wonderful break from my school life and general life. I haven’t had a real, get away vacation in two years because of my surgery. On this one, we took two trips to the city, took a Bible tour, had an intriguing look at my rich, religious history. Then at the MET, we took an Integrity tour which was really encouraging. It showed the correlation between Greek culture, its influences on modern day culture, and how we can avoid some of the negative effects of this influence. Then we walked around the MET and took pictures all around.
I did quite a bit of knitting. I finished some great projects. I started a mistake rib scarf from a gorgeous yarn I got from an A. C. Moore on Long Island.
Love it! I can’t wait until its finished. I also finished two hats that I can add to my donation list.
I’m feeling really happy about this. I also just started my own Abalone cardigan. I don’t have a picture yet but I’ll post as that project looks less like a blob.
Our flight to New York was delayed 2 hours. This is what I cranked out! I haven’t even boarded the plane and I am almost finished with one of my projects. I have four more days of vacation too 😕
I hope we board soon. JFK… You ain’t cool.
Well, I must say I am quite proud of myself. I have several commissioned projects that I have completed and I keep getting more coming in, thanks to Jehovah. Here I was worrying about having a steady job and one has fell right into my lap. Thank you Grandma for giving a how to knit booklet!!!
I made my first pair of mittens for this woman’s granddaughter. Lookie!
I have a sweater my friend commissioned me to do for her…
Yup!!!! I’m working hard. My garden produced its first green bean…
Ahhh. I had been growing collards for the past couple months. I’m glad something else decided to grow.
I made a carrot pie the other day. I need to post the recipe. Actually, find a good pumpkin pie recipe and replace the pumpkin with boiled carriers. It’s delicious!
I shall see you guys!
