We all know how much I love Orange.....and I wanted to buy the "Canyon Ridge" colorway.....and this one was my loaner:
But it was a 2017 model and did not have all the incentives that a 2016 model has right now.....so at first I bought an "Ingot Silver" Ford Explorer.....but apparently that one got "sold out from under them".....and then they found a Ruby Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat and asked what I thought about Red....I kinda mumbled that it was not my first pick, but not a deal breaker.
I never knew a Red color could make me so happy! I LOVE this color...plus it has a lot more bells and whistles than the Canyon Ridge one did.....I cannot remember the last time I was this excited over a car.....LOL! Here she is!
I love her so much! The comfort in this car is also outstanding....just ask Antonio:
I love everything about it! It also has seat warmers...which are hardly needed here in South Texas, but sure do make my tushy feel good on chilly mornings like today!
A few of my knitting sisters even said I should knit something to match it.....I had a couple of recommendations, but this one was my favorite....Cascade 220 in Ruby Red Color....I kinda want to buy 10 skeins of this and make a sweater....but I am on a yarn diet!!!! Maybe I will be allowed to splurge for my birthday or give a hint to Paige for my Birthday Present....LOL!
Okay......as for knitting.....I really only worked on two things this week.
1. Paige's sweater.....Here are her two sleeves...one is more than 1/2 way done and one is barely started:
2. My Fade...4th color added:
I actually found a boo-boo on my spreadsheet for this...I left out 10 crucial rows...so I need to redo my spreadsheet and see how far behind I am.....
I bot some new leggings this past week....I really wanted them for the retreat coming up, but I could not wait that long and wore them yesterday while knitting at Jaimes.....they have little knitted stitches on them"
I am not sure if you guys saw my little post late last week with a free pattern for a mug sock....but I knitted this little sock for a mug for Darlene for her birthday....she loved it! (okay, so this is the 3rd thing I worked on this past week):
That is about all the knitting I have.....but I did do a ton of cleaning in my living room.....I have purchased some new recliners that will be delivered this week and I needed to get my living room ready for the delivery....I was going to throw out my old beat up couch, but Paige wants me to keep it till she buys a house (some time this year)....anyway, I lifted the couch and my current recliner and cleaned out a ka-jillion spiderwebs (it was pretty nasty) and scrubbed the floors and have it all ready....I have two yellow circles where the new recliners will go....it will be a bit crowded for a while, but homely!
Well, I think that is all I have......This past week has had some exceptional sunrises....so I snapped a few pics to share:
Have a great week everyone!
Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
