Greetings all. Another week as flown by. It is amazing how quickly time is passing. Everyday, I thought about doing a personal blog post, yet here it is Sunday and time for a YOP post. Lucky you! I will be doing both crafting and personal post in this one.
I have a finish for this week.
My Snoqualmie socks came off the needles Monday evening. So nice to have them completed and ready to wear. That meant my sock needles were naked. Can't have naked sock needles, now can we. So I started another pair.
Hello Car Socks with my self striping Diversity Yarn. These will be quite bright as you can already tell by the first 4 colors. There are 2 more colors that have not appeared yet too. These will be made with the FKL heels again. Right now, they are the only thing active on my needles.
Oops, I have another completion this week too.
The "To the Point" shawl for the prayer shawl ministry. I have no idea what yarn this is as it was given to me without a ball band. It is a heavy worsted so this shawl is a tad bit bigger than the ones I do in Caron Simply Soft yarn. Also, I add a 2 row half double crochet edging to it. I do know it is 100% acrylic and therefore can be machine washed and dried. A very important fact when sending prayer shawls to very ill individuals.
Since it is the last post of the month, I will show you the dishcloths I have completed this month.
Nine cloths completed. A few already have a home to go to. The rest of them will be put in a box for emergency gifts. I love this pattern. It is so quick and easy to do. It is the only one I use now. After completing the cloth and before I cut the yarn, I crochet a loop so if someone wants to hang the cloth to dry, it is easy to do. My mom always hung up her cloths under her sink. That is where I came up with the idea of it.
So, that is all for my crafting this week. Hubby and I are still working on decluttering the house. We have not been as active with it this week though. I did a little in the kitchen but that is all.
Hubby leaves to visit his mom tomorrow, so, I will be bringing all the Christmas boxes in and going through them while he is gone. That should net a few bags of donations. Not to mention, clear up quite a bit of room in our shed.
I am on travel stand-by also. My niece called me on Friday morning to inform me my brother had been airlifted to a hospital with what appeared to be a stroke. He is still there and maybe there for a while. Seems he had a clot at the base of his brain (It was removed) and also has endocarditis. (Infection of the heart's inner lining). I do not have any details yet, as to if there was any damage to his brain from the lack of blood flow. We will find out today if there is any damage to his heart valves from the infection. So things are kind of up in the air as to if I need to go or not. My niece has been a blessing in keeping me informed of any and all updates. She is flying in to see him today and to help out around the house.
Other than that, things are going pretty good. I have laundry going today so hubby can pack for his trip. There will be beef stroganoff tonight for dinner. And of course, there will be some knitting done today too.
Until next time..............Happy Crafting!!!!
