What A Fabulous Week!

Hi everyone.....How was your week?  Mine was Fabulous!  I LOVE my new car and I LOVE my new furniture and I am LOVING the weather lately.....Here are my chairs and rug:

 On Monday, there was some talk on my online knitting group of having made Beans over the weekend to have ready for the week.....well, it made me hungry.  One of Darlene's favorite meals is Beans, Cornbread, and Fried I went to HEB and bought the fixings.....and viola.....

 Now, I had to use my pressure cooker for the beans because you usually need to cook beans for hours....but it took about 41 min in the pressure cooker....and they were yummy!

Oh, and I cheated on my yarn diet a TINY bit.....well $1.70 worth.  Remember I told you about that Ruby Red yarn that I think would match my car....well, I had to I had some store credit at The Loopy Ewe and I used it....I had to pay $1.70 out of my pocket for 2 skeins of Cascade 220 in the 893 Ruby colorway.....I think it matches pretty well, what do you think?

I also want to make myself one of the Mug Socks that I made for Darlene....and for that I went stash diving.....Now, it is really hard to photograph this yarn on my car....they are two different shades of red....the worsted weight in Ruby and then the fingering weight in 5607 Red.....

I may have to play with my stitch count a bit as my mug us a little shorter than Darlene's and a touch wider:

At certain angles, I think either one would match, even though they are two different colors....LOL!

This past weekend I had a weekend off from watching Antonio. so Jaime and I hopped into the new car and took a short weekend trip, just the two of Sisterdale (wine), then Fredericksburg (German Food), then Junction (R&R).  We were going to stay in Fredericksburg, but heck, the deer lease (with the RV) was just another hour away, so to Junction it was.....I got lots of knitting time....what did I work on?  My socks of course....I have to finish by tomorrow:

On the drive out:

Knitting in the RV with a small snack dinner since we had a big lunch in Fredericksburg:

On the drive home, I have about 9 stripes to catch up the 2nd sock:

Last night I finished the first one:

I should finish my 2nd one tonight!

That is pretty much it....I worked a little on my Fade and a little on Paige's sweater, but not enough to take more it really was just a sock week.

Oh, I have a secret project that is about to be on the needles.....for this secret project, I will be using the long gradient kauni yarn:

I did snap a couple of pictures from the car was frozen with frost in Junction, and a quick pic of a scenic view in Junction up on a large hill.

This week also seems to be the week of more beautiful sunrises when I get to work....I am really sorry if you are sick and tired of these...but I love sunrises and sunsets :) (there is one sunset from Jaime's can see his work van in the picture)

Well, that is all I have....kind of boring huh....but it was a fabulous week!  I have a bit of a cast on urge and want to knit a some appropriate pics:

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
