It's a good week (or two)
Here is the family I had to leave. They are so wonderful and really fill my heart with love and joy. The boy on the far right is the one who received the spider man blanket. He looked at it and said "cool". So I think that means he likes it. The boy/man next to him is our oldest grandchild. He just graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia and was home for a little R&R. It was great to see him as it had been 4 years since last we had. The one on the far left is graduating from high school this year. He is an avid track/cross country runner and medals quite often in his heats. The boy next to him is starting middle school this year. He is special because I got to be in the room when he was born.
I also took my socks with me to work on while I was away. And I did work on them. I knitted and frogged and knitted and frogged and knitted and am ready to frog again. For some reason I am not getting the toe right. I do toe up magic loop socks. I have made almost 10 pair this way and for some reason I can not manage to get it right this time. So they are put on the back burner again.
I also have discovered that I need to add to my YOP list. And here is the reason why.
I have not made a scarf for a young boy/man before. I was thinking of using cables in it but don't know if that would be considered girly or not. I could just do a ribbed pattern all the way up with seed stitches on each end. I know that a lace pattern is out of the question. I have looked on ravelry but there are so many and I just can't decide.
So if any of you have any great pattern ideas for me please let me know. I have cast on for the scarf and have about one inch of ribbing done on it so far so am ready to start on a pattern now.
Last and not least..................while we were gone I really missed this person...............
