Happy Monday everybody. Are we ready for the week ahead?
The weekend was quiet around my house. The high and almost intolerable temperatures continued and nobody really wanted to leave the house unless they just absolutely had to. We had originally planned on going to Arkabutler Lake and do a little swimming, running our boats and have a little picnic, but did change our minds in the end and decided to postpone it to a somewhat cooler weekend, when the heat index is not 106F. The one thing we couldn't get out of, was to go and feed the horses in the barn, but we did that real, real early.
Now that isn't to say we didn't have a nice weekend, because we did. Cooking was done in the crock pot, as not to heat up the house. We also watched a variety of movies, one of them being "The Book of Eli", which we highly recommend. Personally I also watched a couple of nice German TV movies, which I enjoyed very much.
Guess what? I also got some hooking time in. Can you believe it? Well lately it always seems amazing to me when I can fit in some hooky time, but I am so glad.
Remember the project I was working on? The one, where I said I wanted you all to guess? Well, you all are never going to believe what happened. The ones who guessed it was going to be a purse, were correct. Now, I finished all the body parts and was working on the handle, when of all things, I ran out of yarn. The horror of it, lol. Me, actually running out of yarn? Never thought that would happen. I was also real sure that I had enough yarn before I got started, but you can all see where that assumption let me. So for now I have to put this project on hold and wait when I am able to get to the store with that particular yarn. The problem is, the only one of it's kind is 2 hours away and not exactly in a direction I go often. Well, hopefully I won't have to put it off for to long. Am trying to talk my friend into going on a little trip there with me.
Not to worry so, I had another project planned and have plenty of yarn for this one. I will be making a shawl for a very special friend of mine. When you see the following pictures you might think the yarn is blue, but it is actually turquoise. For some reason, not matter how I tried, the color was not coming out on camera.
Love the way this project works up and is moving along quit nicely. Think I will have it done within a couple of days. Will show it off at that time.
For now I will bit you all a great Monday evening and we shall meet soon again!
