Shawl…. ❤️

Like I said before I was home sick and when I could I was working on a shawl. I am in love with this pattern that I might make another in another yarn, cotton.

The lace breaks make it for me. I just love the look.

It is a paid pattern but I am a slow knitter and this one is working up very quickly!

Waiting For Rain shawl pattern

I thought the 2 skeins I had would be enough, I was mistaken…. had to order one more! The picture below is the yarn I am currently using.

Frustrating yarn, it sheds fuzz everywhere! Alot of times, esp when I don’t pay attention I stick my needle in between the strand, due to it changing in thickness. But it is so pretty….

Stuff… in and out

I later heard about the awesome job, 😞 sadly I didn’t get it. I so wanted that one since I would actually be using my degree. Oh well I sort of use my degree in everything if you look at it right…. talking and listening and then responding correctly is an art and when you know more about psychology it helps talking to people and keeping the peace and harmony while keeping everyone happy. So to keep me up in spirit I decided to make a positive and think that way about it.

I started my great job last week, it so far seems great. Everyone seems to be nice, snarky and sarcastic…. like me! 😝

So while I waited for my start date, I kept struggling with getting the crap my daughter spread to my hubby and me. We had to put off going to Houston for a week, to see family since we were so bad. Last week we did go, I still wasn’t 100%, but we had a great time.

A lady in my in-laws neighborhood does and annual thing to raise money for her church in Mexico, she makes wonderful 🥘 food! We had gorditas, handmade and so yummy 🤤.

One of my hubby’s friends picked us up to go to a Jeep event. Jeep owners that were nearby came together to spell out Jeep with their Jeeps! There were so many that came to the event they made two lines underneath the word! Someone took pictures and video with a drone, looked really cool.

Isn’t that cool?!?

My hubby has a Challenger, so we love car events and shows, he competes when we do go to them.

We came home and I started my new job on Wednesday (was supposed to in Tuesday but my boss had to push it another day), and I was still feeling blah and coughing.

It was a nice week at work, people are nice, snarky and sarcastic… my kinds of peoples! Lol. I apparently am doing well at learning, since I am already doing their chat function… hubby said, ‘you are a smart cookie!’

I thought I posted this almost 2 weeks ago! 3rd week of work… I was home sick! I ended up having a serious sinus infection that caused me to be dizzy, be nauseous and more. But my anxiety played into it too… 😑

While home I worked, when up to it, on a knit shawl.

It is coming out beautifully!

My latest

Since I have been between jobs, training for a new one to do at home, still interviewing for something more permanent. I finally got an interview for a great job as well as an awesome one that has to use my degree background. The great job, I got… the awesome one, still no word. 🤔

So while I wait on the start date of the great job, and waiting on some word as promised by the awesome one, I have been crocheting 🧶.

The 1st one was coming out so beautiful I had to make one for myself in colors I love. I followed a YouTube video to make… Grandma’s German Shells Blanket

My husband kept telling me I needed to make his mom a headband thingy to keep her ears warm, especially at work, since she gets cold easily. So I whipped this one out, one of the stitches was a real pain for me since my hook kept getting snagged on the yarn. But all in all it came out very pretty.

Thanks to my daughter who brought such a delightful sickness into our lives, of course she had it during her spring break and incubated it and then gave it to me and the hubby at the end of that week and all of last week, and we are still sick now. 😧. We have been trying to keep out of public and such.

I’m here again.

Well again I have just been not in the mood or forgetting things. So Im here again!

So here are my soaps I made, all wrapped up ready to be sold! Kiwi 🥝 Swirl, Mocha Coffee ☕️ and Pink 🍋 Lemonade.

I have samples of the Ocean 🌊 Swirl, Oatmeal, Milk 🥛 & Honey 🍯 and Pink 🍋 Lemonade as well!

I am going to make another batch of soap today or tomorrow. I have been busy with working and trying to find a better job.

I finally got this done! All of it made with yarn I got off wish…not doing that again. Granted it came out looking beautiful, but scratchy.

This is my current project. Asymmetrical Shawl by Red Heart. Got alot of mistakes but it still looks good.

More to come, later.

Training and knitting…

Ive been so busy with changing clients with my job (have to train again, so much fun 🤦🏼‍♀️), getting new fur babies (and they are babies)…but Ive been knitting.

I was working on this, a sweater, and I couldn’t take the mistakes and some of the stitches I couldn’t stand. I tore it completely down and am restarting it with other yarn. Will update soon.

Been busy….

I’ve been busy since I last posted. Here are some things that I have done while away.

Here is something I love to make but my stomach hates me for eating too much of when I do. This is what I call barley risotto, it has onions, mushrooms, butter, chicken broth, leftover roasted chicken and yes barley.

Unfortunately my daughters kitty, Bruce, got down and sick, come to find out he has some chronic illness that if stressed enough will bring it on. Poor thing was sick for about a week and really loved medicine time…we mixed it with wet food. He is such a character.

We adopted this cutie, the stressor to kitty :(. Ended up being too much for our whole family, other critters included so we had to give him back. ;(.

Our sweet momma dog, Cleo, left us a few weeks after we got crazy dog. It was very hard for my hubby and I, especially my hubby since he had had her since a pup.

Our sweetie, Dexter, passed away a few weeks ago. Come to find out since ferrets have so much inbreeding they don’t live very long due to tumors or other illnesses. We think he had a tumor on his pancreas.

We got this cutie, Nutmeg, seeing that our other ferret baby seemed to be lonely and depressed due to his brother passing. She is alot of fun and crazy in a very little package. Lol

WIPS and projects is progress…

Will explain them more later! Bye for now!
