KNITTING GAL

September 20, 2008

A little house cleaning.......

I have been fooling around with pictures and colors for my blog and I think I like what I have so far. It seems pleasant and not to busy. I hope you enjoy it too.



I have been listening (and watching) videos on you tube too. I am enchanted by the old movie clips and and songs. I wish I had stumbled onto it sooner.....all my old favorites. I though I was the only one around that loved the music and movies from the 30's & 40's. Not true. There are thousands of us out there! I know some folks like to watch old movies occasionally, but I watch almost every day. I never watch regular TV programs. I am always watching TCM or else watching my own DVD collection as I knit in the evenings. Now I can check you tube for more favorites too. What a great time we live in. You can watch whatever you like from the past right now on technology from the future. Isn't it amazing. I think I like that long ago time so much because I spent so many happy afternoons after school watching the Million Dollar Movie and doing my homework while my mom got dinner ready. Then in the summer I would watch the Late Show and even the Late, Late Show with my mom or sister. Those were happy days indeed....long ago and far away.......

I have been busy finishing projects. I just need to finish up the toes on these two pair of socks and they will be finished. I gave the pedicure socks to my daughter and she loved them. Not a great picture but I am using my cell phone and sending to my email. I find this much faster than fooling around with the digital camera and hooking it up to the computer and all that jazz. So if the pictures are not the best please excuse them.



























I am just about done with the stole. I love the pattern and the warm color. I have one more skein of yarn left and then I will be done. I have enjoyed this easy intro into lace knitting.

Everyone have a good weekend and enjoy this heavenly weather we have been having. 70's during the day, sunshine, blue skies, and in the 50's at night with stars in the sky. I could stand this all year long.
