My job is keeping me busy, I never know what I will be working from day to day. Is someone calling in sick, they can't work that shift so I get more shifts sometimes then I need. But I will keep working and hoping for the best. Like to day one of the girls call and say I can't work tonight can you cover my shift and I'll work yours. So here I am still up and I have to be at work tomorrow am. It's a short shift and then Thursday I will work all day, picked up a Friday night shift, and then work a lunch shift and a dinner shift on Saturday. So lets hope no one gets sick this week.
I still try to find a little time to knit and spin. I have a new test knit job, this one is for Knit Picks, I will actually make dollars instead of yarn. I still would rather knit for yarn. Well I guess I should be heading to bed If I plan to work tomorrow. So keep those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks or spinning, Bye.

I plied the yarn that I had been spinning and this bunch turned out better the last bunch I tried to ply. It was a true knotty yarn. But this time I learned from the last time so it went easier and the yarn turned out better. Each time I get a little better.

Here is a shot of the monster coming through the field as you can see the corn was really tall. It must have been two of me and I'm not short 5' 8" so it must have been about 12 feet tall. Here is a picture of the cutter and a truck so the corn was quiet tall. I took this picture on Wednesday and they are still cutting corn today the pile is getting quiet high.
I've got lots of tomatoes and am planning on making homemade tomato soup. I've been given lots of fruit so I have to decide what to do with it. I made some grape juice and can't decide if I want to make grape jelly or not. Decisions decisions something will come about.
I received my Woolgirl Sock Club shipment this week
It looks interesting now doesn't it. The theme was "Love Bug" and we got all kinds of goodies.
1 skein of Miss Babs "Yummy" fingering weight sock yarn in the Ladybug colorway. with a mini skein of Ladybug black for heels and toes.
- "Fly Away Home" sock pattern by Lisa Dykstra

- A mini-ladybug heart notepad
- A ladybug eraser.
- 2 Love Bug magnets

I am also working on a pair of sock called "Sunday Swing" this is a fun and easy to memorize pattern and is my travel sock. I am finally using the first sock club shipment from Yarn Pirate called Rum Runner. I have tried to use this yarn before but I didn't like the pooling but this time around it is working out well . So I am happy so far I'm working on the gusset now.
I LOVE to spin I am having so much fun watching the roving turn into string and then the strings turn into yarn. This is not a good picture of my string but it is turning out and I'm having lots of fun. I'm using a pencil roving from Fiber Optic Yarns called Moonbeam. Gena and I bought this at Sock Summit we split it just to see if we would like it or not and we didn't know if we would even like spinning. Now I can't wait to save up enough money to buy a spinning wheel.
Well that's enough for tonight I'll try again this weekend. So keep those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks, Bye.

I've been looking a several different patterns to choose from. 1. by Wendy Johnson, Rivulets, 2. Sunday Swing Sock out of Knitty summer, 2. by very busy monkey, Irate Squirrel Socks. Then to pick out the yarn the choices so many.
Work has been going good. I seem to be working all the time lunch shift and then turn around and work dinner but all is good. At least I don't have a lot of time to spend money.
Today is the opening game of FOOTBALL, GO SEAHAWKS GO. They are playing the Rams so it should be a good game and hopefully a good year. We have to hope everyone stays healthy. Kick off it about to happen. So keep those sticks aclickn', Happily knitting socks, Bye.

My knitting is progressing. I have the gusset of the Luminare sock done and working on the foot. On the mystery sock I'm still on the gusset I haven't really worked on it a lot will try to do better. I just got yarn from Woolgirl to do a test knit just waiting for a pattern so I have to knit a little bit faster.
Work is still fun but it is WORK. Tonight we where busy and I stumbled through it. All went well but I just could have done better. I know that I'm being hard on myself but I have to set an example at all times. I just have to get my timing down and things will fall into place. I'm still learning the kitchen and the cooks, the computer system and the differences in all the server sand their abilities. I will learn it all by the end of this month. Then I can handle the front of the house responsibility's and that will help Tony out more.
Well that's all for now I just had to share my yarn. Keep those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks, Bye

Well that's it for now. Today has just been one of those days and I'm glad that it's over so off to bed.
Keep those sticks aclickn'. Happily knitting socks, Bye.
