I am going back to work tomorrow and figure I had better get to sleep early so a quick update and I’m sorry you haven’t had much from me lately.


Other than a walk with a friend today to test my fitness for work, I have been doing absolutely nothing!


Well Covid was three pairs of socks, a scarf and a sweater long. I am super happy with the sweater!

I had been wanting to make a second Love Note by TinCanKnits that wasn’t so bulky and finally got around to it. This sweater knits up so fast! I started Thursday night and finished Saturday. The yarn is Poppy Yarns: Paris Fingering held with Knitting For Olive silky smooth mohair in petroleum green. The only change I made to the pattern was to make it longer so that I used up the yarn.

I also finally got around to making Hermione’s Everyday Socks. This is a free pattern on ravelry and I was just trying to use up sock yarn. Of course, I still have some left of each. 🙄

I will have to add a photo when it is daylight. I got the idea of doing contrast cuffs, heels and toes from the Crazy Sock Lady podcast which I am now obsessed with watching (and quickly using up all my data)!


The big thing today was that I finally ordered a new dishwasher, washer and dryer off of the Costco app. I am hoping everything else will keep working for a while as that was a pretty big bill! I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for as lots of things were out of stock, but… it included delivery, shipping and taking away the old machines! That convenience is worth a lot to me!

Well I think that’s my entire day and I need to get to bed.

Have fun!

  1. first I love the sweater. I keep thinking I need more sweaters since I live in sweaters and sweatshirts in the winter.

    I hope you are really feeling well, teaching when you aren’t 100% is HARD! I’m glad you have a good class this year as maybe they will be empathic to you not feeling well and help you out. Take it easy, drink lots of water and do not overdo

  2. Congratulation and welcome back to the world! Your Love Note is gorgeous. I am definitely making another one. I would also love to see how your socks turned out. I am interested in making myself a pair.

  3. Welcome back my dear! I figured you were sleeping, but was very glad to see your post today! The sweater is gorgeous, that color, yummy! Hope the da6 goes well, and you aren’t too exhausted when you get home. New appliances are exciting but expensive, hopefully you love them after a couple of weeks!

    1. Yes I’ve really done nothing but sleep. It’s going to be tough staying awake all day!
      I’m hoping I love these new appliances though I always hate getting used to new things
