This week really flew by for me. I have been knitting, but just don't have much to show, because I've ripped it out several times. I'm having fun with it though. I've seen a lot of long vests lately that I like. I tried looking for patterns, but couldn't find one that exactly matched what was in my little head, so I'm making up my own - hense all the ripping back. I repeat that I am having fun with it!
I bought the Alabama Stitch Book this week, and that has been fun to look through. Lots of inspiration inside those pages if you like to hand stitch.
I've been working on a tee shirt.
Today, I'm off with my mother for the day, so my servants, crock pot and bread machine, are making dinner for us as I write!
They are making beef stew and oatmeal bread! Have a great weekend!
