First .. the shawl! I finally got a picture this morning that accurately shows the color of the shawl I finished last night!
Second, I figured on election day, what better day to wear my red, white and blue socks.
The pattern is Undulance and I love making these types of patterns things that are a bit innovative and challenging. The yarn is very old and discontinued. Even though I made these socks in 2019, in about 2008 I made a pair of socks for a friend, loved the yarn so much that I ordered several more skeins of it so I think I still have one skein left.
Third, this is the project I’m starting back on to try to get finished before the test knit yarn arrives.
Also, I think this is probably an accurate color for the carpet in the upstairs family room, which may be the same carpet as the downstairs family room. I don’t even know. Crazy!
Fourth and finally, Vince has monthly or quarterly calls with our financial guy. If I’m there, I have to sit in on them and that gives me an extreme tummy ache. All I want to know is “How much can I spend on yarn this month?” 🙂 Vince does an amazing job of managing everything and I really don’t even want to know the details. Don’t tell me I should know because we have the guy who does it all and if something happened to Vince, I’d just call him and he’d take care of everything or me . . or that’s how I think it will work and if not, I don’t want to know. Anyway, Vince called me after the call to tell me all the stuff he thought I should know. During the course of the conversation, Vince just casually said “I told him that probably next year, we’ll buy a car so he needs to have that in his plans.” Did my husband just say “we’ll buy a car?” I kinda gasped then said to myself . . just let it pass. Don’t say anything. Act like buying a new car every 15 or so years is normal! So . . I didn’t say anything. Knowing Vince, he’s thinking about that pickup he thought Chad was going to get for him at an auction for $3,000.
Vince always told me that he would not buy a new vehicle until we had a garage. All we had in TX was a carport and you know feral cats had all night parties on top of our vehicles so I don’t blame him and, it sounds like he’s planning to do what he said he would do . . buy a car when we get a garage, though I doubt he does it til the house in Texas sell and since it isn’t for sale yet . . this sounds like the Vince and Judy version of “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie!”
