Year of Projects: Week 30

Good morning!  I am spending my day watching The Walking Dead along with Doctor Who...can't wait to see the new Doctor at 1:45 and the start of the new season from The Walking Dead...with a female showrunner!!!!!!! So yesterday may have been a day of anger for many here in the US......(and no I don't believe Kavanaugh should be a judge...I watched his hearing....I did not see Dr. Ford's testimony, but he does not have the temperament to be a Supreme Court judge...and I believe her)....November is coming......

Anyway back to yarny things.....I have been working on my Beekeeper, almost exclusively....I stayed home on Wednesday...Tuesday was one of the worst pain days I've had in awhile (my infusion is tomorrow)....and I worked on socks...since Thursday was a Once Upon a Sock post.....so you can check out that post to see what I've done....

Yesterday I also stayed home...and today, we were possibly going to go out, but I had a bad night....so we are again staying in....I do love to hermit......

Anyway, I pulled out Beekeeper and worked on it some more...I'm about 4 inches below the armholes,,,another 7 or so to go.....
So I started this about two hours ago...my pictures were not uploading....so just spent time deleting things and trying to upload....I take a lot of pictures...so need to delete occasionally....

So I am going to go find my Time Traveler Felici yarn from Knitpicks and cast on some socks to watch the new Dr. Who...see you next week.....

Sigh, the whole Kavanaugh thing makes me so very sad and mad. ARGGGG!
I love your beekeeper. It is a keeper for sure!!
Sorry you aren't feeling well enough to get out - but I too love to hermit about at times (like this weekend).
Happy knitting. and I hope you feel better soon.

Love all the texture in your bee keeper and the color looks perfect for something with that name. Totally agree with regarding Dr. Ford and Kavanugh. I'm unhappy they rushed things throw, that the FBI didn't talk to like 40 people with info, that so many records were blocked. The whole thing seemed like a sham. His temperament should have disqualified him right on the spot.

Dr Ford was so very brave, and the Judge, well he handled himself like a buffoon and =should not be on the Supreme Court, yet once again these horrible things keep happening. I hope you are feeling better after the infusion.

The world is upside it seems, that's why I love knitting and other crafts...you can zone out on the madness in the world for a bit. Happy Knitting :)

Please please give me your hermit tips. I just am not able to hermit. I want to . I must. Winter is coming to Wisconsin. I have no choice. but the thought of the beautiful days in the 70s like today, sunny and lovely being over are too much for this heart to bear today. We get one more gorgeous day. Im used to November slamming the pretty door shut, October 10th is 3 weeks too soon!!!! We need every nice day we can get. Sigh

So many fun socks in your Once Upon. A Sock post! Looks like you’re a dab hand at the FLK heel now!

I’ve still got several skeins of Time Traveler in my stash. It may be almost time for a new pair. Did you enjoy 13? I did and have hopes for a great season.

The whole political situation makes me very unhappy. My absentee ballot is in the mail and my fingers are crossed for lots of good news in November.

Sandy said...

Popping back in to wave hi. Hope you're feeling better, thought I'd leave you the link to my travel blog today, just for a change of pace.

I'm glad you got to stay home and relax while watching your favorite shoes.

I'm loving the new Dr Who so far. Sorry to hear that you've been in pain; hope the infusion made a difference.
