Oh, I knew I should have set up this post ahead of time. Yesterday was a complete wash! I can’t believe I missed Sunday. Oh well, I’ll keep going.
I really was very busy yesterday. My mom has started a new business. She’s begun, “baking for hire.” My mom really is a superb baker and for some reason she’s really convinced she’s going to do this. I worry because, I know how tiring baking is and I know how much we bake already during the Holidays. If yesterday’s craft show was any indication, her holiday baking will increase this year. Her kuchens, cookies and bars, were a hit. She wasn’t selling yesterday as she just started this three weeks ago and she has two huge orders to fulfill, but she took orders and gave out samples and her contact info. If she’d had stuff for sale, I am not sure we would have been able to keep up. We were busy enough filling trays with samples and keeping her business flyers stocked. So, that’s how I spent my day yesterday. I hadn’t even planned on going to help. My daughter was just going to go help as she is Mom’s assistant. It’s a good thing I went though!
I didn’t get a picture of the cardigan. When I got home, I collapsed, watched Dexter and went to bed. I did manage to knit another hat on Saturday, which I will also photograph later today. I will have pictures tomorrow, I promise! I will have a thorough blog post tomorrow!
I promise my posts will be better this weekend.
As you may have noticed, I am a hockey fan. A HUGE hockey fan. There really are only two sports seasons for me, hockey season and not hockey season. When I named my pattern, “Go Buffalo,” I wasn’t kidding. Though, I don’t even have to watch my favorite teams. I’ll watch just about any team. This weekend for me, is hockey night. As I type, my favorite college team is playing in view of my computer and I just got done watching my beloved Buffalo Sabres defeat the Calgary Flames. Woooot. More hockey to come. Tomorrow night is the famed “Hockey Night in Canada”. The Sabres will be playing in Ottawa and there will be another UND/Minnesota game. Ahhh, I love it! Me, my knitting and some hockey!
Oof, perhaps this whole, “posting for a whole month” isn’t going so well when I realize just now that I haven’t posted!!! I don’t have much for today. I did get one of the arms to that sweater finished and I just cast on another hat sample. So, it was a productive day.
I will leave you with some pretty.
This is a gorgeous skein of yarn from The Wool Dispensary. The yarn base is Useful Irradiant in Lizard Boy.
NaBloPoMo? you ask. Well, it is National Blog Posting Month and I am doing it! I’ve been trying to work on my blog posting over the past year. I am not really sure it’s any better, but it does come a bit easier for me than it used to. There are prompts that I can use. Today’s is, “What is your favorite part about writing?” Well I don’t feel like answering that. So, I will give you a picture of a new design I am working on. I’ve been promising these to you for over a week.
Isn’t that cable pattern lovely? I have since finished the body and bound off. Working on the sleeves today. Can’t wait to show it to you! Check back everyday this month so you can see if I make some progress!
