Plain Vanilla

Well I certainly didn’t mean to go MIA on you all…life seriously just got the better of me for a moment.

First off we had end of the month.  I’ll spare you the details, but it was ugly and I ended up working late the end of the week and was there to the dismay of the folks that wanted to close until 7pm.  Well, when you’re on a deadline and you have work to do… I don’t leave till the work is done.

Secondly Monsieur Purl got me a very nice surprise gift of a day at the spa.  I had the best facial of my life yesterday.  This woman is genius.  If I don’t get carded the next time I’m out, I’ll be surprised.  I’ve been buffed, coiffed, sanded, and massaged all back into place.  Plus the scale said I was down to 135.  I’m hoping it was accurate… still would like to get down further – my dream weight is 125.  I’d be happy with 130 at my age and build stature.

Finally today, after a good sleep in, Monsieur Purl and I worked on the house a bit.  We couldn’t take it any more as the dust bunnies seemed to be set to riot.  I feel much better that it’s again in a livable state.

I’ve been so busy that I’ve wanted to get mittens/fingerless mitts on the needles – these will be gifts for my Mom and I haven’t been able to get one started yet.  I’m planning on a few sets of plain vanilla ones and a nice fancy pair.  I also have been looking for a suitable pattern for my latest Sock That Rock kit.  I’ve decided not to do the club next year.  It was a fun to do once thing, but I’m good now.  Thanks.  I do have to decided what to buy with my 10% coupon.  Can’t be letting that go to waste now can we?

Plus – my Bee Shawl is just waiting and my spinning has been delayed.  I have to get back up to speed quick.  I’m behind my schedule already.

Anyway… I finished up my MIL socks.  Hope she likes them.  They are coming in November after Thanksgiving.  So we won’t know till then.

  • I’m going to wait til November when the new STR colorways are coming out (a whole series called Raven or something like that).
    I won’t join again either. Too expensive to my taste to be honest. I thought we’d get more of the medium weight yarn, but we didn’t.
