Crazy Busy Weekend!

Paige moved apartments…from a first floor apartment (well, there are 7 steps to get to her first floor apartment…not that I counted) to a third floor apartment….where there are 39 steps, again, not that I was counting (LOL!).

Well, if you do not already know this...let me tell you that I am a very sedentary person!  However, this past weekend, for Saturday I did 8,753 steps and Sunday I did 14,124 steps…..I had about 100 ‘active’ hours…which is more ‘active’ hours that I probably had in all of 2015!

So, I am bushed!  My calves are on FIRE and I never want to walk again…but I did survive.

This new apartment is just for Paige and Antonio….and she is excited for the clean break.  She broke up with her boyfriend, Chris, and is no longer living with her best friend, Bizzle…..Paige felt like she was mother to 3 children and not just 1… now the new chapter of just Paige and Antonio starts…..she loves her new apartment and so does Antonio....I am very happy for them!

I do have a snapshot to prove my pain....LOL!

Here is a picture of her bathroom, I am pretty impressed with the tub!

On to the knitting......I have a pretty exciting stash enhancement....I got some SMOOSHY yarn.  I have wanted to get some of this yarn for a long time to make a big ole smooshy blanket.  Well, I finally got some.  I got it from a friend, Trish, in Indiana.  She owns a shop called Colorways Gallery, and she gave me a much appreciated discount.  I cannot wait to make this blanket...but I have no yet decided what pattern I will use....

Here is my stuff with some pics of the beautiful blankets made with it.

and here I am showing the girls at lunch how you would knit with such huge needles (they are size US 120).

I also had a friend destash some of her DVD yarn, so I grabbed this one:

I tried to do my nails by myself this week because I got these super cute dachshund looked really bad.....

So, I went and had them professionally done (yes, I also got a pedicure) and they looked much better.....I say looked (past tense) because after the move, they do not look so hot!

Now, as far as, I really have not done much....I did not get to knit much at all this weekend...maybe just an hour each day.  I did work on my Karee Shawl (I am loving how this is looking):

Darlene also knitted some fingerless mitts for Antonio, I knitted the very end of one of his mitts, so I could leave them for him at his new apartment....Thank you Darlene, he loved them!

Lastly, I have been working away at my DVD socks for January.  I am hoping to finish these before Paige and I leave to CA on Friday!

And that is it.  I know, not much....but it was really a crazy and busy weekend for me (which is where most of my knitting time is).

Happy Happy Happy Knitting Everyone!!
