I have been working away on last year’s Christmas scarf gift for my BSIL. I have almost 60″ done, but decided I need 72″. The end is in sight. Almost.
And, I blame my Margene totally for this. Srsly, people. It’s all her fault because I never would have seen them if I hadn’t seen them on her blog. Of course, to be fair, I was not made to purchase the pattern and the yarn. Nobody forced me. But, I had forgotten them from the last time Margene had knit them. Then, she knit another pair for a friend. So, I tripped and fell down. I ordered the pattern and the yarn. What a great knit they are. I love the pattern and the yarn is a dream. This was my “new job” gift to myself. Like I needed an excuse, right? And, although I blame my Margene, I really am grateful because I adore the knit and the yarn and I will use the mitts all winter long. So, THANK YOU MARGENE!
Now, I put another two coats of mud on the drywall. I might actually be close. I have put a total of 7 coats of joint compound on this tape. I will be priming the drywall and painting soon. I intend to get this puppy under control very soon. Of course, pictures will follow.
And, lastlyish, this is my last week at the old job. I’m sad, but so excited I can’t stand it. This opportunity is a gift and I know it and I am grateful. I realized that this coming Friday is “Boss’ Day”. I will give my old bosses gifts in thanks for a long time of wonderful and steady employment!
My soundtrack for the day? Jimi Hendrix with “Walking thru the Clouds”. He had the most beautiful smile.
Have a great Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
