The calendar says September, but it really feels more like November today. The wind and rain coming down from Tropical Storm Ernesto have really made it a dreary day outside. I feel bad for anyone who had planned a Labor Day BBQ! Luckily we didn’t really have any plans. It would be the perfect night to start a fire in the fireplace and curl up on the couch watching a movie, that’s for sure! I don’t mind this weather. I think the awful heat of summer is still fresh in my mind and I welcome cooler temperatures. (Plus, I am so excited to once again be able to wear cardigans. Hooray for the cardigan sweater!)
Today I did a bit of knitting on Felted Bowl #3 (from One Skein). The instructions say to use a 24″ circular needle for the bowls and I would love to see someone do that! I’m knitting the small bowl and I had to start with DPNs. For the large bowls, I’ve always used a 16″ needle. That has to be a misprint. I’m eager to finish this little guy up so I can start on the purse for the purse swap, whee! I love the pattern and I will probably end up making one for myself, too.
And yes, obviously, I switched back to WordPress. I just can’t commit to a blogging program, I guess! No, actually I never intended to use Blogger for the long-term; I just needed the time to set up WP again. It is much more elegant than old Blogger (though I have to hold Blogger in my heart since I did use it for so very long at the beginning — way back in 2000, holy crow!)
Tomorrow I hope to finish up the bowl and just do stuff around the house (like put away the mounds of laundry sitting in baskets) and figure out a storage solution for J.’s Playmobil stuff. Monday I’m dragging D. to Sears to help me pick out new glasses. I lost my current pair. (Yes, I know I lost the pair before that, too.). I have looked high and low and they are not to be found. The other day I went to Sears and picked out a few frames I like and now I need a second opinion. It’s a good thing my eyesight isn’t too bad. I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend (at least here in the U.S.). Enjoy!
