OK, this is a better shot. Thank goodness for photo editing on my computer! Anyway, I still have 52 foot rows to do and then 20 toe rows to do to finish sock #2. My goal is to have it completed by next Sunday's update. I have been asked what yarn I am using.....This is Diversity by Plymouth Yarn in the colorway Fruity. A joy to work with, no wool, machine wash and dry and wears like iron!
The other finished item this week is...................the Moogly "Simple Home Basket" made for my DIL's bday.
It is about 11" in diameter and 9" deep. She loves it!
There will not be another one made anytime soon. This was so hard on my hands!
There was a new project cast on this past week.
"Summer Flies" shawl. It has been in my library for ages as has this yarn. The yarn is Blue Heron Rayon Metallic. Yes, I know, there is green in this. But there is also purple and lots of sparkles, so it makes it ok to have. There is a different ending to this shawl than is printed on the original pattern. It is called "My Version of Summer Flies". I am going to be using that ending as I like the looks of it much better than the original one.
That sums up my crafting week. There were more dishcloths made but will post those photos at the end of the month. What are you working on craft wise?
Tomorrow is a holiday here in the US. Presidents Day, complete with parades and closing of all government offices. I don't know how many parades will take place, seeing as the weather around the US is pretty crazy right now. Lots of snow, rain, wind and just plain cold all over this year. There was even snow in Hawaii last week! We have been having rain on and off for the past few weeks. Our temperatures have been about 15 degrees below our normal. My heater is still running and normally by the middle of February I have my windows opened during the day for the lovely fresh air. Not this year!
Not much else going on here. We have a memorial to go to this afternoon for a friend of ours who passed away last month. Seems like the dark colors in my closet are getting a lot of use lately. Hopefully, this will be the last one for a while.
OH!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew there was something else I wanted to know. In my midweek post (Don't think many of you follow except on Sundays) I asked if any of you have a die cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette. If so, which one, how often do you use it, what do you mostly use it for, would you recommend the one you have or a different model?
Until next time................happy crafting!
