Overtime & Its Rewards

Boots

Although it was raining yesterday, I got the Saturday morning chores out of the way & off I went for a very long, but lovely walk over to one of my favourite shops for a new pair of dress boots. I have been seeing these everywhere, & the last straw was seeing them in a magazine I subscribe to. If I couldn’t pay cash, I had decided I would wait, but with the overtime I worked last weekend, I managed to make them mine. I love ECCO shoes & boots. So comfortable !

Knitting update soon.

Happy knitting !

Let There Be Yarn

IMG_0255

I ordered the Cotton Classic by Tahki Yarns/Tahki-Stacy Charles, Inc. as described in Mason*Dixon Knitting, for my Mitered Square Blanket, meaning that I ordered only half the required quantity so that my preferences for colour emerge. I have just 18 hanks pictured here as two are on back-order. I have been so busy with work, it’s been difficult to make posts lately. Work takes up so much knitting time don’t you think? Speaking of which, I have been asked to go into work tomorrow, Sunday ! It seems I am needed to type up an opening statement in its final form. I’m going to pamper myself today, however, by going to the salon to have my hair washed & blown dry.

I do hope you all enjoy your Sunday & think of me working away.

Happy knitting !
