Then we ended up in the West Island at Extreme Pita for lunch. I love their Bruchetta Pita on Whole Wheat. Mmmmm Feta! (Angela - you forgot the feta in my fridge!) Too bad there isn't any Extreme Pita's near my place - I love their food! So healthy too - and right on for my "diet".
Then we checked out Beadsbilles which is on Boulevard Gouin. Uhm, yeah, they suck. They have no stock and they are kind of pricey. Wasn't worth the visit - but how were we supposed to know. They were tiny! So much so that with other people shopping in there, there was not enough room for me & the baby carrier.
After the bead place we went to Walmart near my house, Angela wanted some material to make a bag, and I checked out some clothing. Didn't try anything on, so I have to see what fits, and what if anything needs to go back. We were there until closing.
Here is my system for knitting up the mitered squares. I have a checklist that I use for each row - or I never remember where I'm at. (Knitting A.D.D.!) This way, I know where I am. Yeah - don't ask - I do not know why in earth I'm using a PURPLE marker? Maybe it's because I need a new set of markers, and purple is the only one that hasn't been used because I hated purple? And never end up using that color?
Here is a start to 1 mitered square. I like the way the colors started. But then, there was an overload in the maroon color department:
I stil like the way it turned out in the end. I believe this is a Regia Colorway? (I'm emailing Caroline who donated this sock yarn to find out) but it's definitely an overload in the maroon department!
I actually have another square to show off today. I managed to finisht he one above, plus this one! This is leftover bits from Maureen in my SP10 group and I've already emailed her to find out what yarn this is - if she knows. Sean's blankie now has 5 squares. I haven't decided how wide I'm going to make it yet.
Tonight after Angela left, Jamie & I caught up on last week's Entourage & Sopranos, which I had to download because of our dish being down due to nasty weather (It's funny that last week it was snowing and our dish went down, and this week it's gorgeous weather, so much so I was out in a T-SHIRT today! What's with this weather!??
Anyhow, I'm off to bed. And I'm sleeping in tomorrow!
