The week has moved along so fast
that I almost forgot all about YOU!
Worked TA Sub jobs for two full days plus one afternoon (didja ever notice that the need to be somewhere 11am to 3pm seems to take more than 4 hours out of a day?) meetings and/or rehearsal at church for 3 evenings in a row, arrangements for looking after the house and cats and yard while we are out of town next week (first time in ages that all of us are going somewhere at the same time)
BUT, my hands and yarns have been busy. I finished the pastels stripes baby blankie, and began a new one in 4-ply with a 6.0mm hook. It feels so big, and seems to be going much quicker than the sofftee yarn.
I crocheted a nice tan bookmark for a sympathy card.
With my peg looms, knitted a woman’s hat in Earthy Ombre (autumn colors), a baby hat in pastels, and this one, the only thing I have a picture of.
It is actually by request of a friend from the Yarn Group, she knitted her own mittens to match.
An honor to do it, but even though I followed the pattern, I probably should have knitted one more row before drawing it closed.
I have a smallish head and fine hair, so when she put it on, a bit more of her earlobes showed.
Husband says to stop dwelling on it. If one hat doesn’t do the job, knit or buy a different one.
The holiday weekend is looking quite full also, and then I’m booked as TA Sub at West High School full days Tuesday and Wednesday, there’s a luncheon at the Activity Center on Thursday, then we are outta town o’dark early on Friday.
I was just as much or more busy when I was raising a family, but it seems like my ability to organize is leaving my brain. Husband says I allow too much clutter to rattle around in there.
Ah well, know that you are a delightful oasis :kiss:
