I'm alone in my house this afternoon for the first time in 10 weeks.
This feels weird.
This feels wonderful!

Last week, my sister and I road tripped to Orlando Florida to see my mother and my other sister who lives there.  We had been self isolating in our homes for 8 weeks so felt that it was safe.  It took us 16 hours only stopping for gas (wearing gloves while pumping) and the occasional bathroom stop.  
The drive was well worth it.  
Still self isolating while at my moms house with the only time out going to Trader Joes and Whole Foods.  We went as a pack (3 sisters) delegating only one sister to retrieve the items (while wearing masks and gloves, of course).  
My mom is doing well.  Well, when I say well I mean the same.  She has spent over the last year in her living room in a hospital bed with vascular dementia.  However, she is so darn sweet it makes our hearts big.  We don't take for granted the time when we get to see her, touch her and hear her sweet voice.  
On the road trip to Florida, I started the Missoni Accomplished sweater.  That's the one up there on the left.  It looked a little small, so I wet blocked it and sure enough my suspicion was correct.  It was a little small.  My gauge was off and I couldn't remember if when you have more stitches do you get a tighter fit or a looser fit.  After consulting my friend Kim, it was confirmed... a tighter fit.
So, I cast on the larger size and I am hoping it will fit.  I know, my stitches look terrible.  I am trying something new (YIPPEE!) and knitting the color work in both continental and english.  Two handed knitting... something I have never attempted.  It felt great regardless of the job I was doing.  I'm hoping this will block out some of the imperfections.
I'm knitting from my stash.  
I miss Classic Elite.  
I really enjoyed their yarn.

Happy Long weekend friends!

  4. أساليب لمكافحة العث: نضع الكافور في الخزائن التي تتواجد فيها حشرة العث كما من الممكن أن نضع أغصان نبات اللافندر بين الملابس.
    إرشادات لمكافحة حشرات البيت
    تعريض البيت لأشعة الشمس والقيام بتهويته غداة يومياً.
    التخلص من بقايا الغذاء وقمامة البيت الأخرى على نحوٍ متكرر كل يوم.
    تناول الغذاء في الموضع الخاص لتجنب نثر بقاياه في أرجاء البيت وهذا لأن الحشرات تنجذب بشكل سريع نحو تواجد أي أثر للطعام.
    المحافظة على نظافة البيت والثياب والفراش على نحوٍ دائم.
