Yep it is possible to put in 30 minutes on a stationary bike while knitting a plain vanilla sock.

A pair of socks for charity.
Liked the chevron leg. Tried an after thought heel.  My kitchnering still needs work for the heel seam.  But will give it another go 
A small hitchhiker with some mystery yarn. Lovely colors, nice halo. Not sure who will be the recipient.

Finished a couple more golf club head covers for my aunt.  Red acrylic with one black fun fur and one white fun fur top.  If she tires of golf the acrylic yarn will be perfect for scrubbing pots.

Replaced our limp and yellowed ceiling fans with two new more tropical ones.
 I love costco!

Loudest voice in the room

I am normally drawn to fiction.  I am fondest of mystery.  But I live in a community where Fox News is the news purveyor of choice in the homes of many of the people  we know.  By way of disclosure my house is a Fox News free zone.   I have been reading a lot about this book, excerpts,criticism, general review.  So I broke down and preordered on Amazon.  It arrived yesterday.  I started reading today.   It is interesting.

The only problem, I can't read and knit at the same time.

The is not a toy

Well that's what the manual says.  But I'm not not entirely sure.
It looks very toy like.  It is small.  It is blue. It is plastic. But at least it's not the Hello Kitty model.   I bought this for $41.  I just want a little machine to be able to sew a seam, take a dart.  Basic stuff!   I will pick up some thread and try it tomorrow.  Hopefully it really isn't a toy even though it looks like one.

On the knitting side I finished the second pair of socks for the middle school.
  I'm ready to start the ribbing on my Miley tee.  And I finished a second ruffle skirt.  This one for a friends great grand daughter.  

With the cold weather I stayed in and put the last if the Christmas stuff away.  And spent the day doing some serious cleaning.   Now I can knit and golf without guilt.....not that I felt all the guilty but still.
