At some point a witty saying will materialize here. Right here. Watch for it.

Monday Report

I had a GREAT weekend.

Maddy Sweater in action

I wore my Maddy sweater almost full time.

On Saturday, many of us met at Knit Knack. They were having the Trunk Show for Black Water Abbey yarns. As always, they had the most incredible deep, rich, heathered yarns. Sam the Ram and Sue the Ewe also made an appearance, and I just fell in love with both of them.

(Luckily, I already have Sam the Ram in my stash…)

Marilyn from Blackwater Abbey Yarns was really fun to talk to, and I look forward to spending more time with her in the future.

Did I buy yarn? Nope, I’m still being loyal to the “Top 10 Knit from your Stash”. I definately picked up a bunch of patterns (three vests, two sweaters and a purse), and some lovely pewter Heart/Celtic buttons.

I cast on for one of the items on my Top 10 list, the charity blanket out of the Lion Brand Cotton Ease. I’m doing kind of a Thermal Weave pattern (a Fiber Trends baby blanket pattern that was one of the first things that I ever purchased at Knit Knack), and it is really fun. Quite easily memorized, so it will be my “knit in public” project for the time being. I like working with the Cotton Ease yarn, too! (I’m doing the blanket in two shades of blue…)

On Sunday, Mom and I went out TV shopping. Boy, things have changed from the “I like THAT picture” days. Now you have to do research. We ended up getting a nice medium sized LCD Sony, and a beautiful wood cabinet for it to sit on. I also picked up a couple of quilting books at Joanne (I had coupons to use up) and some ink cartridges for my printer (at the CompUSA store closing sale). Yummy lunch at Einstein’s bagel shop.

Mom and I both fell in love with the cutest little doxie puppy at the pet store. Yes, I know that pet stores are evil and the little guy was probably from a puppy mill, but he had the cutest face and beautiful dappled grey/black coloration. Sweet disposition and he loved to be cuddled. He will be a dog to knit sweaters for, that is the truth. But sadly, I’m not home enough to have a dog. *sigh* But I was seriously tempted, that was for sure…

  1. You look great in that sweater photo. I think you made a wise choice with the Sony TV. We love ours and my daughter has a Sony LCD and she loves hers, great picture. I think you also made a wise choice passing up on the cute dachsund. I have the same soft spot, especially for that breed. But, my grandson is allergic to dogs, fortunately not cats. Cheryl

  2. 60Hz refresh or 120? 720 or 1180? “p” or “i”?

    Can you tell that I’ve been researching TV technologies also? :lol: I like the Sony, but have also been looking at the Samsung. No word yet on when I’ll be purchasing something, unless someone has a really awesome sale for a “Super Bowl” sales event of some kind…

    It was pretty. Had a nice picture.

    I’m supposed to do more research than that???

  4. Poor Dad, had to LISTEN to the games on the radio this weekend. It will be nice to have a TV again. Thanks for all your help, Catherine.
