Thinking about Jerry

Jerry is my dear departed husband. And what made me think of him was a blanket being made with geek symbols on it. The first square is a Tesla Coil. Jerry made two in his lifetime. One for school and one for me. I won't try to explain it Tesla and don't look at the cars or Space X. I may be one of a few women who think that getting a Tesla coil is romantic, but I did. He also built me a doll house. A haunted doll house. But that is another story.

Reminder to myself. Do not overdo, it hurts. That is all.

Bit off more than I can chew

You would think with as many trips around the sun as I had made that I would know that I just can not kit three pair of socks in one month. So i am revamping the schedule. One pair of socks for my darling son, who will need them to keep his feet warm, before Christmas. So those are first. The second pair is going to be a KAL that I slipped and fell into. They are due in December. Third will be to finish socks for my son in law, they can hold till Christmas. Then a few odds and ends and I will be done for Christmas. I have several pair to be mailed and I almost always do that by Thanksgiving. Along with the Christmas cards that need mailing. This schedule makes me much happier, and the cut on my knitting finger time to heal. I tried with a band-aid, and without, and find that I can not knit with either without opening my cut. So today after work I will read and hope it heals overnight. There is always superglue....

Hello October, Hello Monday

October 1st. I sat down and decided what I needed to knit this month to keep up with my Christmas knitting. So I have two pair of big old feet socks to do. And a shawlette on the needles for one of my sons' in laws. Than got on Ravelry to make sure I had these in my projects, which I did. And tripped into a KAL with PaperDaisy1. She of the famous Tootsie Roll socks. So now I have decided to do a pair of socks every 10 days and push the shawlette off till November. I will keep you updated.
