No walks on Wednesdays, it is our Designated Day Off, as is Sunday. Yesterday there was quite a lot of running about at the dam. We could hear the wild goats bleating and it spooked Lorelai Gilmore. Peri knows the sound so she wasn't worried at all. Gilly's running away while Peri surges ahead.
I am in the middle of a Fat Quarter Swap and today I sewed some some squares for the little quilt I am making myself. It is for sitting under on the couch when I watch TV. I am using five of the squares sent to me, which have green in them, and then I have four more from my Green Stash!! The swaps are the four on the right. This also ties in with this month's OPAM goal: make a little quilt!! Two Birds. One Stone. Say no more.
I am knitting up my Doctor Who Zippy Uppy Sleeve. I consulted my Ann Budd Book of Jumpers (Sweaters) and it was easy to rewrite the pattern and I am striping six rows because it is six rows between increases the further up I go, so I don't need to count.
I bought two giant drumhead cabbages at the supermarket. They weigh about 10kg together and @ $2 a cabbage that works out to 40 cents a kilo. The Labradors will be having a lot of cabbage in the foreseeable future!! On top is a large Brussel sprout. I am having Brussel sprouts with my tea tonight.
Last week I managed to buy almost a whole other set of Golden Hands. I have a complete set now and Onyi has almost a whole one. Ours were $1 each but Sharon found some on The Ebay for $18 a piece and I have seen them for $5 or $12. So instead of $324, I paid $18 so I feel well and truly bargained up. Onyi and I have both been spending some happy Golden Hands Hours perusing our books.
I am not feeling so full of ennui any more, which is a jolly good thing!!! Tonight I plan to knit my sleeve and catch up on some TV. I want to start a new cardigan ASAP so I have to fix the other two before I am allowed.
The weather is turning very cold: in the Highlands this morning the temperature you would experience was Minus 13*C. And snow is forecast down to 600m. Winter is almost here. Hooray!!!
