Week 7! I can hardly believe that it has been almost 2 months since we started year 4. I so enjoy this idea of a Year of Projects. It as really helped to discipline me more with my crafting, blogging, photography and organization.
So what have I been up to this past week?
As I told you last week, my niece and her kiddos left on Tuesday. Wednesday, my nephew came to town. Gosh it was so good to catch up with all my brother's "children" and his grandchildren. My heart is full with all the love that came through my doors these past two weeks. The house is back to just hubby and myself (and our dogs). It sure is quiet around here.
Now, on the crafting front..............
TA-DA.......................I finished the second mitt
and this is a photo of the entire set. I think the recipient will be well pleased with it, don't you?
After that I got a hold of my son in Texas and asked him to give me the length of every one's feet there. This was pretty funny, as he really HATES touching feet. I have a feeling he will just hand everyone a ruler and tell them to do it themselves. I want to get started on the slippers ASAP. I figured it up and I have between 11-13 pairs to make this year. Hopefully I can get them all done before 12/24/14. So for the next few weeks, you will see lots of photos of slippers........well maybe. As of yet, I have not received any measurements. I am not worried about 3 people though....................my foot and theirs are the same size so that will be the ones I do first.
Otherwise, this week has seen me working on the never ending log cabin blanket. It is such a nice mindless knit (as long as I keep track of how many rows I am doing) I can watch TV, listen to conversations around me and even participate in them or totally zone out everything around me. I also managed to do a few rows on the 'second' sock that has been lingering for about 6 months now. It was the perfect project to do while waiting at my Doctor's office.
I want to thank all of you for your kind comments last week. The fact you all could see the anchor on the dishcloth made me quite happy.
So lets see how I am doing this week.
