I left work early on Thursday and Jaime and I headed out to the Deer Lease....it was fabulous and super relaxing. I will have lots of pictures of that later....First, I will jump in with a few stash enhancements....
Darlene got me some of the mini stitch markers from Coco Knits. I really love these magnetic stitch markers....they are my newest favorite markers ever!
Then I needed to get some more Malabrigo Rios yarn in Sandbank colorway for Paige's sweater
Here is the yarn in mixed dye lots and you cannot even see the difference:
Lastly I got some Knit Picks Brava Bulky Yarn to finish Antonio's blanket...I did not take a picture of all the yarn....here is the blanket.....
I worked on my November socks.....
And, I finished them....Yahoo!
I think next month will be wine accent colors with stelina.....I have never knit sparkly socks.
I worked on the dreaded black sweater....I got both of the two front panels to 23" (seems like 23 feet) and joined them:
Then, I worked on Paige's sweater....I am just doing miles of stockinette.....I am trying to get the back panel to about 23" (it goes much faster than the black ribbed sweater) so I can do some measurements and decide how to do the front panels with the pockets....I have a little more than the 10" now.
I did not watch Antonio this past weekend like I usually do....and Antonio has done really well in school, so Paige took him bowling....I love this kiddo!
This past week I made a Cauliflower Pancetta Mac and Cheese dish from my Hello Fresh box and I LOVED it.....I have put the next couple of weeks on hold as I try to get some Christmas knitting finished (and not cook so much and save a few bucks)....but I really loved this one:
Okay....here are my Deer Lease Pics....there are sheep, goats, horses, cows, guineas, chickens, all sorts of animals...so here are just a few pics.....WARNING, THE LAST FEW PICS ARE OF DEAD ANIMALS.
Jacob got a great Axis Buck!
and another hunter got a coyote to keep them from killing the goats and sheep:
It was a great lazy weekend....Happy, Happy, Happy Knitting everyone!
