Yesterday was a good day for crocheting hexagons for OJ's Christmas stocking. Customers were just far enough apart that I'd get one or two rounds done so I could lay it down without forgetting where I was. Now I have 12 of the 16 needed done so pretty soon I'll make the lone square one, sew them together and, VOILA!, a stocking will appear. I will get it done before Thanksgiving. Cross my heart.
For mindless knitting while talking and laughing I dug out Sudoku strip #5 and have about 4 inches more to knit on it. Then I'll knit another one the same length, then it'll be time to knit the two looooong strips to join the 3 three-block panels. After that I'll have to decide how I want to border the thing. I'm torn between just going around a few times with single crochet or picking up stitches along the sides, one by one, and knitting strips around the edges. It'll depend on how very sick and tired I am of the whole thing by the time I get there.
November 4--James Visser, Baby on Beach. Carrie looked up from her book and grinned. Somebody's dark-haired toddler was playing in the rinse showers on the beach pad. He? Yes, he had shucked his tiny trunks and was laughing as he pranced in the spray from the shower heads. She couldn't see anyone nearby and wondered who was watching him. He looked to be about three years old, there should be someone looking for him. She put down her paperback and got up to see if she could find out where he came from and who was in charge of him.
I had a very spread out bunch of errands to do today. I think I spent more time driving from point to point than I did doing the actual errands. It's a beautiful sunny day so I think I'll go out and rake me some leaves. I have extra rakes if anyone's looking for an hour's amusement.
