Yesterday and today workers have been getting the road ready for repaving along the side of my house. They've been scraping, digging and filling and it has been very noisy between all the equipment and trucks, and I am getting sick of hearing that back up truck noise. Beep Beep Beep!!!! I do like watching them work though and have spent some time looking out of the window. I took these pictures out of the windows in my kitchen. It will be great when we have a nice new road.
I have started another ripple afghan. I usually knit them using acrylic yarn but this time I am using cotton yarn. I will knit all the two row stripes with an off white color and all the 12 row stripes with a multicolor blue and off white color. I buy the cotton yarn in these cone shapes which are yarn for knitting machines. The cones of yarn are a lot cheaper. I think I'll keep this one for myself because I want to see how it turns out since this is the first time with this yarn. I'll post another picture when I have more done so you can see the stripes of the colors better.
The 303 number is how many stitches that I cast on for the ripple afghan pictured above.
We took our two oldest grandkids, Antonio (17) and Taryn (15) out tonight for pizza at Sazzios. After that we all went on to Rita's for ice cream. They are super kids and we always enjoy time spent with them. :-)
I baked some chocolate chip cookies this afternoon to give to my grandkids. I did keep a dozen or so here for me too - and I only ate ONE while baking them. I just can't resist one warm cookie right out of the oven!
The only work I got done today was ironing Ken's work shirts.
I didn't do any reading during the day so I think I'll do that now until bedtime.
Hope you had a fun Wednesday too.
