ouch, ouch, ouch....

Ugh, so I feel like a t-rex after weed whacking the yard. "My forearms are just as useless as yours" to quote an old Far Side cartoon. Since I have massive weeds rather than grass or landscaping to hold up the hillside it must be whacked not mowed. Yeah weed whacker not made for 5'2" girlie girl. UGH. Needless to say, no working out for me today. I plan to hit up Lowes for some house painting bits and pieces, drop off a load of crap at good will and plant a nice fall pot for my front door, so that it looks as someone actually lives at my house rather than a mini cooper.

Lawn down, weed whacking to go

So I finished getting my front lawn, dirt, crap, in order about 20 minutes ago and now I'm pooped. I still need to start the weed whacking, that I'm a little nervous about though. Never done it but it should be funny. Think I'll start in the back where no one can see me, neighbors are gone. Speaking of neighbors gone, no one lives in Clarksville any more the whole damn army is gone, the units not deployed are at JRTC and the SF is about to go on winter cycle so if you want to go out to dinner, shop at walmart or just about anything without having to wait six months now is the time. Sorry there will be no action shots of me making a fool of myself.

It's cold

Hot Damn, its 41 degrees outside right now. OOOOOO. In Idaho it would have snowed by now, and I'd be wearing my "big" coat to class, but as long as it was dry I'd still have some flip-flop days. I miss Idaho. I still have grass thats working on growing and plants that need planting. We'll see.
Coming up this weekend, Claire and the weeds, stay tuned to watch me mow and weedwhack the small jungle in my backyard. Giggle with my neighbors and wonder at how I haven't gone clean through the power cord yet. Cold beer and bbq to be served after.

All but the Zipper

I finished the Zip cardigan last night,

All the crochet is on and the ends woven in. I still have no zipper for it and it needs to be pressed. I'm very happy because it fits great. Now I'm turning my attention to my perfect pie shawl. I'm on a knitting mission this October to clean out all my knitting projects and start fresh. I'm even working on killing my, cough cough... stash. Ok I have no stash, its like 3000 yards of some yarn that I got on sale. I do have a nice selection of sock yarn though. The sock yarn sits out in a pretty basket.

The Zip Cardigan without the Zip

When we bought our house, they said it was a split level without the that wouldn't be a split level then. We have TWO stories, or a main level with a basement. Well thats how the Zipper Cardigan is right now, just a cardigan. I can't for the life of me find a zipper. I will in the end get from Zipperstop since they are the end all in zippers. I wanted to find one a little less plastic zipper-y and more fashion but eh.
More Seams
I am super pleased with the set in seems they fit great.

I will need to block a little more, but my goals for the month are to get this thing done and wearable for the fiber fair on the 27th. I better get a cracking on that crab stitch.
