Mary and I have decided to to the Clapatis and I think this would look great for that. You really can't see it but it also has some green in it. I am anxious to wind it to see what it look like out of the hank.
Not sure when I will get started on the Clapatis but it is not like I don't have enough things going. On the lacy shell I am ready to start binding off for the arm holes then finish the top part. I have not had a lot of time to knit the last week or so due to trying to get yard stuff and house stuff done. Unfortunately, I am slowing down and cannot multi-task the way I used to.
After returning from Stitches I am going to have to tighten my belt and and stop spending so much money on knitting. I think with the potential purchases I may be making at Stitches I should truly not need to purchase any more yarn for this year. Will have to wait and see if this is the case.
I have discovered that I really must pay more attention to the maintenance of my car. I have neglected to have the brakes done and find that I do need them now, pretty badly. You know how it is when it seems to be working OK sometimes things get overlooked. I went to Sears and thought I would have them done there. Let me tell you it was a very slow evening at the mall. Automotive at Sears was not busy at all so I thought this would be a slam dunk.
Na Na! I was told that the cost could be $150-$1400. After an hour of analyzing they condition of the pad and rotors the figure I heard was $852. This was a no sale. I had them put the brakes back together to be done another day. This car has over 90,000 miles. I am not excited about spending that much when the dealer quoted $189 each for front and back. So...hiho...hiho off to the dealer I go.
It has been a month for such things. Since I am in the midst of high dollar dental work to the tune of $1,000. This was very unexpected.
Hopefully, once the car thing and dental thing are done the money going out can slow down.
Is it Friday yet?
