Now the constant coughing hasn't lent itself to extreme productivity in the crafty realm, but I did get some knitting done...mindless sock knitting...oh how I LOVE you...you've kept me sane. First I finished off my Opal Frankensocks...as I remember there are at least 5 or 6 different skeins of Opal in this pair.
My sainted Grandma always gave me socks for Easter...the kind with the frilly lace around the ankle or pretty contrasting colors...very feminine and they made me feel wonderful. Also to add to the gift she would put a silver dollar... a real silver dollar in the toe... I don't know why she did it but I saved them and they are in a safety deposit box. I suppose it was her way of spoiling me and I hope to be able to do the same for my future grandchildren. Do you have any Easter traditions to spoil grandchildren with? I'm stockpiling ideas!
Also I started another pair of the two alternating yarns socks. These are DROPS Fabel 677 and 910... you can see them here.
So are you prepped and ready for Easter? We are doing dinner mid-afternoon at my son and daughter-in-law's home... a mere two blocks from my house. Now the weather is lovely and I could walk but I'm bringing several dishes and don't want to stumble on my way over so I'll drive. Can't wait to make some deviled eggs and have the opportunity to use my Fiestaware egg plate... there aren't enough occasions to use it to suit me...LOL! I did all my grocery shopping yesterday evening and hopefully I haven't forgotten anything so I won't have to deal with the crowds. I went past the Honeybaked Ham store today and the traffic trying to get in and out of the parking lot made me happy that I had been there yesterday. Oh I'm so smart...every once in a while...LOL!
Well I'm going to enjoy the sunny afternoon, still a bit chilly but temps are going back up tomorrow. Maybe I'll knit a bit or cross stitch or take a little nap...
I'm sure the master can give me tips on how to do it right!
happy stitching and knitting -
