Here’s the blue pair I started during JudyL’s knit-a-long….and as you see we have some company here today!
After a rainy drive on mountain roads in the dark, a glass of wine by the fire is a welcome reward. We’re at our condo in the North Georgia mountains for the rest of the week.
Dinner with two of my favorite people. We were able to meet Chris and Becky for dinner before heading to our Big Canoe Condo.
Keith has meetings in the airport this afternoon so I’m killing time waiting for him to be done.
Recognize these? I’m doing the toe decreases on the second pair and they’re almost ready for closing. I know a lot of people don’t like the Kitchener stitch but it doesn’t bother me. The blue pair are ready for their toe decreases too so it won’t be long until I have 2 new pair of socks.
You should be able to click on the photo for a larger view (I hope). Splitting our time today between Adam’s house and the Ritz Carlton where we’re staying. Luckily they had satellite so we were able to watch the Vikings beat the Redskins!! Caleb was going for Pop’s beer….
We flew to GA today and had a lovely holiday dinner fixed by our DIL Lindsey with a little help from Adam. I captured a couple photos of Pop and Caleb.
Planning to spend the entire day poolside so Keith got a cabana for me.
My SIL and Niece will be joining me later and we’re all set for sun or shade.
My goal is to finish up the two pair I have in progress before I get home. So in addition to enjoying the Bloody Mary(s)…I knit on the plane on Wednesday.
Are you done with your socks?
I passed the camera off for a photo of me with Keith and look what I get….you’d think he’d be serious for half a second!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, we ended ours in the hot tub overlooking the ocean (with a glass of wine of course)!
Keith’s snuggled up with the new flannel quilt….
Chesty’s snuggled in the old one.
Anyone have fun plans for Thanksgiving? I’m heading to FL and GA to visit family.
At least Keith’s wait for his new quilt is over. When he comes down in the morning, it will be waiting for him.
I’ve mentioned before that on personal quilts I usually embroider my initials and the year as my label, Keith got a little extra on his.
I’ll need to get Keith to hold it up for a photo of the finished quilt but we’re heading out for Thanksgiving soon so it will have to wait until we’re home I think as tomorrow will be really busy.
We’re fairly boring people and usually usher in the new year sound asleep but this year I decided I wanted to do something more exciting so we’re going to Vegas ….a show, a little time on the slots…. we booked it tonight!
Yes, I sleep late so I had beer and pretzels for breakfast this morning (afternoon)
…. watching the Vikings lose.
A little hand stitching this afternoon and now I’m half way done with Keith’s binding and there’s a pot of homemade lentil soup on the stove. This will be my first attempt to use the new immersion blender. In the past, I’ve always made broth based soups so wish me luck or at least something edible!
