The Labor Day weekend came and went with a whisper this year. No loud bangs or big parties, just hmmmmmm…. We have been traveling on the last two Labor Day weekends but this year we couldn’t think of a single place we needed to go or a single thing we needed to do. The weather was glorious for Texas in September (85 degrees) so the patio got a lot of use—right up until the moment I saw one of these:
I couldn’t take a picture of the actual scorpion on the patio because he was mashed flat and really gooey within 15 seconds of my spotting him. Then Bill had to say those words I DID NOT want to hear, “I’m sure he has friends and family.” The exterminator was here the next day!
Still, I was able to enjoy the lovely breeze and cooler weather while knitting another dishcloth. Boredom is setting in with the summer stash buster sweater. I only have 5 more inches on the back then I can put it together and start the sleeves, but I couldn’t knit another green row so I finished a dishcloth like the one that Judy sent me in the swap.
I’ve been using Judy's in the kitchen since she sent it and really needed more. It is a complicated pattern but one that is easily memorized and very pretty when finished. Thanks for the pattern Judy!! Now for a different one….
I found this free slipper pattern and can’t wait to make a few pairs for Christmas gifts. They are really simple and look like they would be fast to knit. The pattern is written for a knitting board, whatever that is, but it isn’t hard to translate that into knitting lingo.
Requests for prayers and good thoughts—my ophthalmologist is sending me to a retinologist on September 15th because I have a big blob in the middle of my vision in the left eye. She thinks it may be a retinal tear, hopefully not detached. I am concerned but hopeful and praying a lot!!
Life is good.
