Relaxing and Knitting

I have made it through the first week of duty. Yes, that is what I consider work. Mainly because I have been off for the last 2 months and had hoped to be off for a few more weeks.

I received a comment on this blog from a DeltaDawn that I could get in touch with her regarding yarn shops in Virginia Beach and area. However, she commented as anonymus so I have no way to reach her. DeltaDawn, if you read this, please tell me how to get in touch with you. I am off on Saturday's and need additional yarn to finish the tote I am knitting.

I have been working on my tote for the International Tote Exchange. The base is finished but I need to buy the yarn for the flowers based on the colors that my secret pal likes. Looks like I will only have a chance to work on it on Saturdays since I get in so late from work that all I want to do is crawl into bed. Here is what I have so far:

I do hope she will like it. I had purchased the pattern and the yarn for myself before I heard about the exchange. The colors of yarn that I had purchased for the flowers is not the favorite colors of my secret exchange pal so I will just save that yarn for my own purse that I will make later.

I am also doing a mitten KAL. I have almost completed the first convertible glove. Oh goodness, I was just looking at the picture and see that I will have to make one of the fingers longer. Did not notice that before. I had planned on these for myself and kept wondering why there was no change in instructions for men and women. I tried on the incomplete one and it is gigantic on my hand. Guess my son or son-in-law will have convertible mittens for Christmas.


Want to knit for another 1/2 hour or so before dinner and getting ready for work tomorrow. Just the thought of 12 hours answering questions and going over estimates is making me tired.

Yahhee, today is Saturday. Hope you find the yarn store you're looking for. If you're staying at a Hotel, ask them at the front desk for a store listing or if they know of a place. You might find a great area to explore. Good luck!
