First up, the Color Affection Shawl. This actually got done just before we left on the trip. I am not really very fond of it so think I might give it away to our prayer shawl ministry at the church.
I do like the colors but don't like the way it fits. I am a bit old fashioned when it comes to shawl and am not much into the thin ones that are super duper long. But I am sure there is someone out there that is in need of some comfort from this really really soft shawl.
Next up is the Cancer Ribbon Shawl. This has been sitting in my project bag for about 3 years and I finally got around to finishing it. I did take this with me on the trip and did manage to get about an hour of crocheting done on it. I worked on it continually since Monday and finally finished it Saturday night.
This one is going to the prayer shawl cancer ministry at our church. They are always in need of shawls to give to people. I am just glad to have it completed and out of my house.
So last night, after I finished the shawl I cast on the second sock with the Panda Cotton yarn. I don't want to have second sock syndrome. I only got about 1/2 inch done on it before I realized I really needed to get some sleep.
I have updated my YoP to reflect where I am at on my list.
Use up all cotton yarn for dishcloths
Complete 3 project bags
Complete LaLa Shawl
2 blooming pillows
Use up 1/2 of sock yarn
I want to thank my hubby for taking the pictures of the shawls for me. Everyone always tells me to take them in natural light. Did you notice the bright blue skies? I want you to know that we are hitting 88 degrees F today and will be that way for the rest of the week. Winter does not come to the desert until around December and January. And yes, it is still sunny and bright out even during our winters here.
I would like to ask all of you to please remember all those on the east coast who are being affected by Super Storm Sandy. I have several family members over there and they are hunkering down for the storms to hit. I pray they will remain safe.
