I am so behind in my blogging. It has been 21 days since I have typed anything here. How I have missed you Mrs Blog!. There is so much to talk about, I hardly know where to start.
How about we start with my crafting. You would think I would have lots of FO's to show to all of you. Nope....................not even 1 FO. What I do have is this:
I did do a bit more on my Spring Tulips Socks:
I am still loving the pattern and working on them concurrently. As soon as I am done with the shawl, these will be picked back up.
I did volunteer to do a test knit on a sock. I am not able to show you any photos of the sock in progress. However, I can show you the yarn it is being made out of.
It is call Jojoland yarn and is 100% superwash. Imagine that..............I am knitting with 100% wool. These socks, when completed will be going to a dear friend who also knits socks. She will be the one person I know, who will appreciate the work that goes into them. Plus...........she is the only one I know whose foot is small enough to wear the size I am making. LOL
That is all for my crafting. I have barely touched my prayer shawl so did not see a need to show any more photos of that.
On to personal life.
While in New Orleans (NOLA), I tried my darnedest to teach my lefty grand to crochet. She has the idea of the chain down pretty good, but turning the work to come back has her completely baffled. She said she will consult You Tube and see if they explain it in a way that makes any more sense to her. That did not hurt my feelings at all. We all learn in different ways and she LOVES You Tube. Hopefully she will do it too.
Also, while in NOLA, I was graced with a tornado warning. I grew up in Kansas so tornadoes are not a novelty to me. What is novel is: the 2 states I have been in with tornadoes lately have no basements in their houses! Texas..............no basements. Louisiana...........no basements. So I was holed up in a powder room with 2 very large dogs for about 45 minutes.
