My new header picture I took this morning up at the park.
Ken went into work yesterday for a few hours and while he was gone I knitted dish cloths. Later in the afternoon I went outside and started the leave raking for the season. The leaves keep coming and coming for so long and though I do like to rake leaves after a while I do get sick of it. Ken blows a lot of them far out in the back yard under the trees too.
I really like the movie Anne of the Thousand Days about Ann Boleyn and have watched it 3 times. Last week I bought the DVD and the movie came in a set with Mary Queen of Scots. We watched that last night which I liked too about the life long battle between Mary Stuart and Queen Elizabeth, who was Anne's daughter.
This afternoon I baked chocolate chip cookies for our dentist. Ken and I both have dental appointments for a routine cleaning first thing in the morning. Our dentist loves sweets and I like to bring him some when we go because he's a great dentist and is really nice.
I took these two pictures today of the last few remaining flowers in my gardens. So sad to see all the flowers die.
I cast on 3 stitches with size 3 needles.
1st row - Knit
2nd row - Knit 1, increase 1 stitch in the next stitch. Knit to end of row.
Repeat 2nd row until there are 48 stitches on the needle.
Next row - Knit 2, Knit 2 together. Knit to end of row.
Repeat last row until there are 3 stitches left on needle.
I use cotton yarn and buy it at Wal-Mart. It looks like this. This yarn on these big spools are for knitting machines, but it is a lot cheaper to buy it like this than individual little hanks.There are still many hours left in the day and I'm not sure what I'll be doing with them yet. Maybe read, knit, go out to eat, take a look at the town house, or sit in the chair and do nothing. :-)
I hope you got to do something on this Monday that you enjoyed and it made you Happy.
