So blogging has fallen to the bottom of a very long list of to-do’s the past couple of weeks. First I got a stomach flu that knocked me out for a week, then work has been really crazy.
In knitting news…
I’ve been doing research on knitting and certain procedures I see mentioned, but had no idea what they were – the internet is an amazing thing. This weeks topic is Blocking. Blocking is the process of wetting a finished piece of knitting and shaping it to the project’s intended dimensions. There are apparently three ways to do this: wet, moist, and slightly damp. Since I have been using man-made fibers for most of my knitting (Caron Simply Soft and Lion Wool Ease) because they are inexpensive, the wet method is what I plan to try when I finish my new project. I’ll post a picture of what it will (hopefully) look like when I am done. I plan to start it this weekend on a day trip I am taking with some girlfriends. Who knows, maybe I’ll convert them to knitting!
On another note, I received the invitation for the grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary party. My husband and I have to drive to Canton (about 45 minutes away) to go to a barbecue restaurant (one of which is 5 minutes from our house). I tried my hardest to convince them to go to the closer one, but to no avail. It should be fun and interesting because a lot of extended family will be there.
No progress in the baby department yet. Maybe next month.
