Wow I can't believe it's so late and I am just getting to blogging. I was missing some very important stuff that I had to find, TODAY. One was my bag with ETSY stuff for sale since I sold something last night. And the other was my bank bag so I could pay my bills. Both were missing.
I finally found them all, and in the process got rid of 3 boxes of garbage. My new motto... THROW IT AWAY!!!
Here is a picture of me and Adam from yesterday. He is such a good boy and loves to hold hands and hug and snuggle. I know he will someday grow out of this but I am going to enjoy every minute of it while I can.
OK Onto CONTEST STUFF
TUESDAY IS TRY A NEW STITCH DAY
Today's stitch... Leaves of Grass
Leaves Of Grass (multiple of 11 sts)
Note: the instructions below are a generic description of how to execute this stitch pattern. For a single repeat, you'd only need eleven stitches but you'd have a VERY narrow piece! In the example shown, there are three repeats of the stitch, so to make a swatch that looks like the one shown, you need to cast on 33 stitches (3 x the multiple of 11 stitches needed for a single repeat of the pattern.)
Row 1 (RS) *Yo, ssk, k9; rep from * to end.
Row 2 and all WS rows Purl.
Row 3 *K1, yo, ssk, k8; rep from * to end.
Row 5 *K2, yo, ssk, k4, k2tog, yo, k1; rep from * to end.
Row 7 *K3, yo, ssk, k2, k2tog, yo, k2; rep from * to end.
Row 9 *K6, k2tog, yo, k3; rep from * to end.
Row 11 *K5, k2tog, yo, k4; rep from * to end.
Row 12 Purl.
Rep rows 1-12.
I thought since Summer is ending Leaves of Grass sounded like a perfect pattern to finish the contest with.
To receive another entry in this weeks contest just leave a comment. If you want to you can specifically comment on this new stitch. Have you tried it, do you like/hate it, etc. Any comment will get you another entry.
I thought you'd like to hear the update on my water therapy. Yesterday I swam 1/2 of a mile that's 18 laps (up and back) for those who haven't seen my previous posts about this. Plus my regular resistance stuff and 15 minutes of aerobics in the deep end plus I did 30 pull ups too. yeah I am certifiably crazy. LOL
Today other then the major house cleaning, and eventually dishes to wash, I am resting. Adam went home last night so I can. Except Hannah my niece is here, but she is 6 and actually was a HUGE help to me so getting up to feed her etc was a good trade off. Plus I gave her about $5.00 in money and I think she took $10.00 in Avon samples, LOL.
So that's it from me today. I feel like I am way behind, but I am so happy to have the junk out of here finally.
See you tomorrow.
