Short row heels from a side view.
One done. One to go.
This is two socks with some heels and some leg on them... They look pretty good.
More pics when they are further along.... enjoy!!!
Here is that bin all done up. Just needing to pack up the truck , put down the crane down, hook up to the truck and ready to go.
Then yesterday, Saturday, Was absolutely beautiful. It was windy, but the temperature was nice(20 some deg.cel. I think). So, Hubby and his dad were combining. I stayed at the house and visited with mom for a bit... then I went and rode in the truck with Hubby. Some, nice one on one with no knitting, no video games, no computer and no bins(except the trip to dump the truck). Was nice. I got to see what a bit of a challenge driving the grain truck can be.... be it switching from High to low gear in the field or finding your way back to the track you made to get out of the field in the dark. There were 2 other guys out on adjacent quarters, so, until it rained we had those lights as reference where north was. After it started raining... it wasn't too long we had to stop.... WE REALLY DIDN'T NEED ANY RAIN!!!! Dammit. We still have our Oats and Barley to come off! Though last night almost finished dad's oats, which was good, but, had the rain stayed away!!! Dad could have finished.
Today, well we were supposed to start a 22'08 flat bottom Twister yesterday. I don't know if it's on today's agenda or if Hubby has other plans... we shall see...
Off and running... ooh wait!!! I forgot the socks... I have a pretty good foot on them now... just about ready for the heel. I will keep you posted on how the heel goes. Sorry, no pics but figured you could imagine the toe's about 7 inches long. Can't ya?
Now I am off and running! Talk to you all later!

As you can see the toe ups are getting a little longer... I knit in the truck to and from the work site.... so, I get a few rounds a day in... So far so good.
Well, I am pooped and long days building bins make for short nights relaxing at home. So, I am off to find supper and my bed.

My needle is a little twisty.. .and yes I know by putting them in warm water, or on the defrost in the car I can untwist them... but I find it not too bad to deal with them the way they are.
This here, is yesterday's mess. I was processing Cabbage... (it's the worst at throwing itself around the counter) and I did my Zucchini too. I did the cabbage up first though.All them nasty little bits of cabbage... all over the counter... AND THE FLOOR!!! Need to wash my mats but not for another day... waiting for our water to turn back to the right colour.
This here is the bags of processed cabbage I got from my troubles of the mess. Should make lots of lazy cabbage rolls!!
Now, as I had said about the water. I have to wait to wash my floor mats as the water has been just lovely. I didn't think it was that bad until I put my beautiful white printed flannel(supposed to make jammie pants for someone as a gift, now will be mine and ugly) in the wash and it came out like I had tea dyed it. Looks crappy, i'm not happy. but, life goes on and the fabric will make me some jammie's now.. I think.
Anyways, off and running, Talk to ya's later!

As far as knitting... well I put a few rounds on the neck warmer today, did not get very far with that... but tiz how it goes sometimes. I did do a little this eve while Hubby was putting those stiffeners on, because he told me there wasn't anything I could really do... but, after watching for a bit... (before the misting) I got out and handed him up the stiffener laminate rather than having him have to carry it up the ladder... I hope I was helpful...
And other than that? Not much. Weather sucks though. We got what 2 nice days? and now rain again tonight? Cold like snow though... and that is a four letter word I don't wanna talk about yet!!! Let alone deal with.....
Well, I am wiped right out.. tired... very very tired and sore... so.. good night.. will talk to you all later... maybe... If I can bring myself to get up in the morning(if its white out I might just stay in bed!!!)

ick, I had A&W last night... well yesterday, then bologna wrap for supper.... and I feel really icky today. I don't know if it's the food? or the weather though? LOL It's been cold and cloudy and rained all day yesterday! WE did go to work, yes we drove up to Fosston, sat in the truck for 1.5 hours waiting for the rain to stop. It did. We got out. Took the tree(support) out of the roof we were working on, got in the roof. And it started drizzling, we put up a sheet, drizzle heavier, By the time we had 4 sheets up it was raining. It was a nice rain, if it was a better time of year for it. The Farmers don't want it, we bin builders don't want it!!! BRRRRRR and then it's a feels like -2c till 11am today, and then was only -1c at noon... not much warm up!!! So, between not feeling well and the cold we decided work will wait for us until tomorrow. I think this ick is probably a combo of the 2... mind you the food is a big part of it!!!
So, working on my hat in my nice little warm cozy home. LOL Hoping I have enough wool wound and don't have to go to the extension(chilly in there) to get another skein. Although I am betting I will have to make that trip... :P So be it!!!
So, nice an quiet today... knitting away... talk to you all later...

This is the first Twister bin we have done. We have 4 to do. The diameter is 22 feet. See my itty bitty little car in the back of that one? The green step ladder you see is a 6 footer. LOL Finished this one Monday. Did a roof and a half today!
This is the big beautiful, yummy John Deere Tractor we get to use to put those 4 big bad boys up!! That is a big Bad Boy of a Tractor. Drives like a dream and has wonderful fast hydraulics(perfect for the crane)
This part of the pile of stiffeners that was on the pallet... 6 holes to fill at the top, 8 holes in the middle to join 2 tiers, then 2 holes to fill ahead of time for the next tier. Lotta holes to fill!
LOL these ones were an oops and didn't have any holes!! LOL Was a good thing we had some in the garage to replace them (from previous builds of these bins).
Other than all that I'm doing good. We apparently have a mole in the garden so don't know what we are going to get for veggies... could be interesting. Now off and running... see if I can get some more of that hat done!!

I was in the fabric store on Saturday, they were having a big sale. I was disappointed they didn't have any pajama fleece. But I was bad and bought $50.00 worth of flannel for Jammie pant gifts and of course the 2 spools of thread I went in for. LOL yes I went in for 2 spools of thread, but bought 3 because the little snippet of colour I took to match up was kinda small and I couldn't tell if the lighter or the darker was better and since it was buy one get one I bought both and thought I would check it when I got home. And If i have an extra spool of thread.. so be it. So, when I feel like tackling the Jacket. I am ready!!
So that's it for now, Catch you's later!
