Hi everyone! Finished my slouch tam hat from the free pattern, Three Way Chunky Hat, on Ravelry. Had to take off the ribbed edging and reknit it on needles two sizes smaller. It worked! Fits like a charm now. Though one lady did comment the hat was too big for me.
Not much happening here…well…not rug hooking related, unless you count ‘liking’ various rugs on Facebook and Instagram! I’m loving what I’m seeing from other rug hookers these days. Lots of variety, and excellent quality work.
I’ve been focused on knitting. I started the blue Corriedale/BFL (Blue-Faced Leicester) wool hat from handspun yarn. It is a pattern from Ann Budd’s book “A Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns”, modified of course. I’ve knit the pattern once before for someone, slightly different yet again. This will take a while to knit as it’s on 4 mm circular needles. However, it will be a nice, warm, comfy hat.
Aside from that we’ve been busy with friends. Last night I was out with a friend to a movie called “I Can Only Imagine”. It was a stunning movie of forgiveness. A great theme song too.
We’ve had friends in several times for meals and games. I thoroughly enjoy those times too.
I took a friend out to an art gallery opening reception. The art was gorgeous. The people were a bit of a disappointment. No one greeted us or talked to us the entire time. Really weird. Usually gallery staff are right there to answer questions.
We had a gentleman come look at the house, but I suspect no sale yet. No problem. We actually were going to hold off putting the house up for sale till next year, due to extenuating circumstances in the extended family. The only way this man made it through the door to look is because he knew someone who knew Hubby, and well, one thing led to another. Right now there is far too much work to be done on the house to make it desirable to a buyer. It’s in a great location, but it definitely is a fixer-upper! Solid house, just we haven’t been able to keep on top of things over the years, what with everything else going on in our lives.
I’m off to visit relatives the next couple of weeks. I’ll try to post, but can’t make any promises. My iPad Mini and iPhone don’t like the Word Press app for posting to blogs. Frustrating. We’ll see. I’ll keep posting to my Facebook page – JLT Studios though.
Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
