Work in Progress

This is the sweater that I wanted to finish by the end of November. It is a work in progress still. I learned a few new techniques, including knitting it from the top down. I'm to the easy part now, just knit until the body is long enough.

I went to lunch with Sandie and Jim Dixon yesterday as an early celebration for my birthday, no one I would want to celebrate with more than them.

I have low key plans for the rest of the week. I'll spend my birthday on Sunday working a jigsaw saw puzzle, continuing a family tradition with the puzzles. I haven't worked them regularly for several years. We'll see how it goes. I bought a couple from the thrift store my Aunt and Mom and I went to when we were back in Missouri. I will head up to Mom's on Christmas day for a couple of hours. In between will be house cleaning and laundry and hopefully finishing the sweater.

I spent the night out at the local Harrah's in a free room they comp'ed me. I'm going to take a shower in the large glass shower, drink another cup of coffee and head home. My urge to travel has been quenched for the time being, and it was easier than heading up to Vegas.

  1. Happy Belated Birthday , always nice to see Sandy and Jim again. Gotta take care of those travel urges when they happen.

  2. My mom used to love jigsaw puzzles, but I just loved to destroy them after she was finished, and gave me permission.
    Weird, huh?

  3. I'm envious of your knitting skill, it's going to be wonderful when it's done! Glad you were able to get spoiled at Harrahs!
