Sixth Year of Projects - Week 20:
Rats - I missed posting yesterday!! I did not have time since we were driving to visit a friend of ours in the hospital. It was a two and half hour drive each way. We left at 9:30 am and got back home about 11:15pm. Long day but we had a wonderful visit!! A few days ago I decided to knit a hat (she has undergone chemo and most of her hair has fallen out) and since I had some more of the same yarn I thought I would make a pair of fingerless mittens to go with the hat. I did not get the mittens done in time so I will mail them to her once they are done. I am also contemplating making a keyhole scarf but I don't think I have enough yarn - I will probably try it and see - start at one end, keep checking my yarn weight, and make sure I am at the half way point along the scarf so I can manage it. We shall see!! The hat is all done and all that is left of the fingerless mittens is to make the thumbs and tuck in a few ends. The pictures of the hat and mittens are with the same yarn even though the pictures don't reflect that!!
|Sarah's hat all done!|
|Almost done!! Just need to make some thumbs!|
And I am reconsidering the pink cable socks! I plan to spend some time on them over the next couple weeks so hopefully I can make some decent progress!
