Tada! 100th Post

Today is my 100th post since starting my blog nearly a year ago. I started it right have I learned to knit last December. I have learned a lot and made so many wonderful knew friends! Thank you for sharing this milestone with me.

It has been an interesting week, the hubby wasn't feeling so good on Thursday due to a trip to the doctor, he is feeling better now but we are waiting on test results still. I hate the waiting. Friday, I was feeling a little under the weather due to some disagreeable chicken salad and my boss asking like a horses patoot. I left at lunch time and didn't go back. I just couldn't do it. Ever had one of those days, when you just know, that no good will come of any further human inteaction. It seemed the best course of action given my state at the time. Others do not seem to agree, but thats okay, whats done is done, can't wait for Monday! Not.

Today is a picture perfect day, all the clouds have been chased away by the breeze it is a nice low 72 degrees and a good day to sit and watch the clothes dry on the line. There is talk of puttying windows, but so far I haven't seen any action in that area yet so I am enjoying my freedom from domestic chores at the moment, except for the occasional break to hang more clothes, one does need variety even in something as mundane as watching the clothes dry. The excitement of the different fabrics drying at different speeds! Who needs NASCAR?! Okay maybe I'm still feeling the affects of the chicken salad.

In knitting news I am still making progress on both the scraf and the jacket, here is photographic evidence.

The jacket nearing the halfway point.

The scarf not near the halfway point. This is my first attempt at fair isle, wow! Lori asked if I hold a yarn in each hand or let them drop. Well, when I'm only using two colors I hold them but in the instance when I am using more I let one drop. I am still perfecting my technique here. I hope this comes out okay. I have decided the hat will be a little more simple, stripes no fair isle.

I am still struggling in the land of selling a vehicle. I have had lots of interest but no buyers for my RV. It is taking a toll I am so tempted to donate the thing and be done with it, but they hubby is not happy about giving it away. I had an offer to trade it for a VW bug that is not street legal, an SUV with an oil leak and a radiator leak and a dining room set. If anyone had a tug or a trawler we'd be in business! Or maybe a yarn store they wanted to sell to retire in an RV somewhere, wouldn't that be perfect!

Can you believe we are half way through October and the holidays are almost here. Seriously, I'm not ready I have way more knitting to do to be ready, we need a slow down here folks I need more knitting time!

Well back to it! More to knit!

Happy Knitting!
