Yesterday, we had to go house-sit....when the contractors were done, we went to an actual *theatre* and saw "The Lego Movie". WORTH it. So much fun! Both kids had asked, so how could I say no? Because we went on a Monday, there was NO ONE (OK, *8*!) in the room with us. I can highly recommend this - it was fun! :lol:
I'm at the gusset of sock #2. Slow going, because...honestly? I've done it once, I love it, but I'm over it and want to move on. Doesn't help that there's a knit-along I'd like to maybe join on Necker (from Op-Art Socks). I'm trying to talk myself out of the KAL, because....really? I'd prefer to enjoy THIS sock, instead of getting antsy about casting on another one. :sigh: Hard to explain....I do still LOVE my shamrocks, though!
Made a few more project bags, and figured out how to make pyramid bags (for stitch markers and cable needles. I wanted something prettier than plastic tubs. :lol:) I even "mastered" zippers! (sorta. I can at least install them on bags invisibly!)
Our refund is due to hit this week :fingers crossed: If so, it'll be another town day, because I have plans. As do the kids (they get part of it, as well, to do with as they please. Good way to teach budgeting!) I need new cookware.....the Fiesta outlet will enjoy our visit, I think......:lol:
It's gotten interesting in TorahClass lately. We're near the end of Exodus...and.....WoW. I've said all along that we (as Believers) shouldn't participate in things like Halloween/Chrismess/etc, and I've been chastised for it. Folks, it's right there in Exodus 34. We are NOT to mix pagan (NON-God!) practices in with our Torah-observant lives. Dressing up for Halloween? IS mixing. So is setting up a tree for Chrismess....:sigh: Ah, well - I can only do what *I* know is right; I can't make anyone else agree with me. :sigh:
Gotta run - I *really* need to get this sock done!
