Not done—because it still needs to be blocked, and it still needs hooks and eyes sewn on, but it now has small little cap sleeves.. (And I still have 2 full skeins of the grey left over—in a different dye lot—and 2 partial skeins in the original dye lot (and the 2 dye lots are very similar—even under my ott (type) light. SO, I could make separate sleeves (extra long wrist warmers) or a hat (I have a few grey hats, already...) or I could keep the grey and use it with other yarns/colors to do something else.(likely)
And also, finally done, is the last of adjustments/fixes to my computer. New speakers have been sitting around for almost a month(or is it more than a month?!) and now they are finally plugged in, and so is the USB extension cord (from my monitor to the back of the computer) so now I have an easy to reach USB port—one at eye level vs. one that I have to crawl around on my hands and knees to use. The ones on the front of the CPU are easier to access, but also below eye level. I don't often need an extra USB jack, but if I can have one where its handy--why not!
I have my meds, too. Tuesday's visit to the clinic was much more successful than Monday—shorter (in time), too. And I am 24 hours away from confirmation that I have lost yet another pound!--the scale at the clinic claims I have already lost it.. but... I am perfectly content with the medical record being out of sync with my record!
BUT I have misplaced my camera! That's partial why I got the computer stuff done—I was looking for the camera, and while I was doing that, I found a network cable I needed, and power supply and the extra long USB extension cord. So with everything at hand, I crawled under the desk to route all the wires (they aren't neatly bound up, but they are out of sight!)--the ones mentioned, and the new speaker wires, and a new mike, too. So I got something done.
I last remember having the camera last week—I needed to take some photo's out side, and I put it into a tote bag along with some mail—The mail got mailed, and the tote bag? It's got to be someplace—But it's not any place I've looked so far!
The Black & White Cookie socks don't have a complete heel flap yet (4 more row) but now that the sweater vest is done, I'll work on the socks exclusively—for a few days—at least. (and then no doubt will start another project!)
Next week starts with yet another clinic appointment (scheduled blood work) and with a sale at Smiley's. Normally I try and resist going to a Smiley's sale—but I got a late Christmas present--(cash!) and I think a good percentage of it is going to turn into yarn.
So all is right with the world (or rather all will be right once I find my camera). I am knitting, and feeling good, and taking care of myself—I even got some sewing done.
Well, almost.. I got some cutting done—the actually sewing is still to come. Nothing fancy—just a throw pillow for a friend who is redecorating—and needs something special--though he doesn't know it.
He might even get 2 throw pillows—if the mood strikes me. (He's just a friend—and wicked smart—but totally clueless about details like throw pillows!)
