The Eclipse!

Hey everyone.....are you ready for the eclipse?  I have no clue if I am going to be able to break away from work to see it, but I will try since there will not be another one till 7/2/19. (Live Stream Here)

 How has your past week been?  Mine was CRAPPY!  I am soooooooo glad it is over!  I am hoping and praying this upcoming week is MUCH better!

As far as knitting.....well, I really only knit on a few things....I guess that is a good thing because I do see progress.

I finished my socks.....I really kinda messed these up and started decreasing for the toe too soon, and then had to compensate for it in the heel....but they still came out okay, so I am happy!

I worked a little on my Aunt's slippers......but I have a dilemma.

I am out of white....and I am not buying anymore....I have tons of white acrylic.  However, the yarn I used for the slipper's soles and laces is in this semi off white.....and I cannot quite match the off I thought of going with just pure white.  You will rarely see the bottom of the soles...but you will see the laces.  If I go with the pure white, I may have to reknit the I-cords (over 120 inches)...but we will see when I get to that point.

Lastly.....I worked on my mindless Boxy Cape.....

Crazy Darlene and I have decided to do Andrea Mowry's What the Fade?! MKAL.  I thought I had all my colors lined up...but not sure of the order of where to put my Creative Obsession Yarn (the yellowish one) the middle between the Junk yarn, or before the Junk yarn?  I am thinking the first picture....before the Junk Yarn.

Well, that is all I have......oh, Antonio did make brownies yesterday and the were yummy.....he adds sprinkles to everything:

Have a great week:

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
