Now to the deep freeze...

We went from near 70 degree temps. to the teens. Ahh, Cleveland weather...This is winter. We have been in the deep freeze for several days now with no end in site, maybe the flowers and trees will be set to bloom in spring after all. Maybe things are calming down and going back to normal.

I am still working on my "to dye for sweater"...I told you I am not a fast knitter. I haven't been able to knit much lately, my hands have been bothering me a lot. So I have been planning my next project...Cables. I thought I would try a small rectangular swatch, and, when finished sew it into a pouch with a drawstring. It might be a nice distraction from the miles of ST. st. in my sweater. Now to choose a simple pattern, hhhmmm, I guess I will be on line looking for one. If anyone has any suggestions where I can find a simple one please let me know. I think I will go to the craft store and buy an Embellishment machine (I think that's what it's called). It makes a cord or drawstring from the yarn you are using for your project. You can also use it to make "frog closures" for sweaters or whatever. I just can't see myself knitting my drawstring. I don't have that much patience.

As I mentioned before, "The Boy" turned 18 a few weeks ago. Well, he has taken his first step towards manhood... He got a job!!! HHOORRAAYY!!! My baby boy is actually working! It's part time for now , but at least it's a job. He is seeking fulltime employment, but, there are just no jobs around here. He thinks maybe he will be able to eventually get in where he's at fulltime. He is also beginning to look ahead to the future...He's talking about going to school to become a chef. (That's just fine with me, I hate to cook!!!) :) I hope he finds a career he truly loves...I can't think of anything worse than having to do something you totally hate to do day in and day out. Good Luck Son...We are behind you every step of the way!!!!
