Well, day one was not quite as successful as I had hoped.Ã‚Â According to The Plan here is where I am:
Feb 10 – Opening Ceremonies –
40 rows – 26 rows (-14)
In my defense I was at the Northwest FlowerÃ‚Â & Garden Show all day and was not able to cast on until after 7:30p.Ã‚Â I do know this was poor scheduling, but it was the only day Mom and I could go together while Hubby watched the kids.Ã‚Â I shall strive to complete yesterdays rows and todays so that I will not be trying to overcome the shortage later when the rows will take much longer to finish.
I did have a good time at the garden show.Ã‚Â Mom and I took the bus to avoid trying to find parking down town.Ã‚Â We did quite a bit of browsing, some shopping and more shopping.Ã‚Â The deal of the day, for me, was a new knitting bag.Ã‚Â It’s a large bag, and I mean large, this will hold a big project, Ã‚Â with sturdy sides so it stands up on it’s own and it’s lined with a drawsting closure, I paid $10 for it, such a deal.
I also bought a pair of garden shoes, crocs beach in fuschia.Ã‚Â Very bright, so I won’t loose them if I kick them off in the yard; washable, so I can just hose them off after being in the garden or coop; and they are comfy too, they are unisex sizes so they are wider the average women’s shoes and they fit really will.
hmmmm, what else did I bring home with me?Ã‚Â Some fireweed honey (yummy), a ton of catalogs, I signed up for some estamates for a new roof and windows since we are in the middle of a re-fi to make some improvements to the house. Oh, I also picked up a shea butter solid lotion bar and aÃ‚Â small tin of Honey Balm with bees wax and shea butter, it smells very lightly of honey and is perfect to tuck into the knitting bag.
I have a Stitch and Bitch to be at in a little over and hour, I better get moving.
