the finished product was not up to my standards.
Basically the "simple knitted socks" were an EPIC FAIL!
I have learned a LOT of new techniques
polished my knitting skills
but I would never wear them.
I ripped them out.
We move on...
learn from our mistakes
and I am now embarking on a lovely new project.
A pretty scarf which is a free pattern
Lacy Baktus by Strikkelise
This project is simple...
lacy and beautiful.
I do not like waste...
Speaking of waste,
I ruined a pair of jeans by putting them in the dryer at the cottage.
Who would have thought that 20 minutes in a dryer on low
would shrink a pair of jeans?
I am obviously not in sync with the appliances at the cottage!
Shrank SO MUCH
that they cling
painfully to my thighs and calves.
Not comfy at all!
I had to go out and buy another pair...
in Sidney on my way home!
made in Canada
just a tad under $100
I will donate my other jeans...
I have been wearing my father rings...
my Mom gave them to me.
What to do with a mans wedding band and a diamond ring?
I asked our family jeweller Paul de Goutiere to design a pendant
he hit it out of the ballpark...
He suggested that it should be strung on a simple black silk strand...
it looks more modern and contemporary.
I have been wearing it a lot with my black and grey wardrobe....
no idea that it would come in so handy as an accessory.
I am also trying to focus on healthy eating and drinking lots of water
avocado's rank right up there on the healthy scale!
Mashed avocado and a cup of tea...
How is you weekend going?
I am off to a fashion show with a friend tomorrow
then serving up a roast beef dinner for the Super Bowl.
What are you up to?
