Good Sunday morning! Just starting us off. Tell/show us what you've been up to. A lot of gardening etc this time of year so yarning seems to take a back seat. That's OK, check in and let us know how you are. Linda
Not quite sure how that shawl will work out now- the strips will be rounded, and they won't join to each other easily, maybe I can join them like that other shawl I made and posted last month. I need to figure this all out.
I've been busy with family stuff and I always want to get on here every week day (week ends if possible, but then I'm not the only one home to use the computer!), so I haven't been getting into my yarn as fast as I want.
Keep Smilin'! A good laugh- for any reason- will do anyone good!
Finished hat last night to go on dress. Need to put the final touches on it. And then a picture of it the dress and blanket.
Busy with grandkids all weekend. Had to help at a fundraiser dinner on Sunday.
Mary I am sure you will get the shawl figured out.
Linda thanks for starting us off this week. Have a good day everyone. Jeanette
Can't wait to see the hat, Jeanette. I'm picturing a summer type hat, am I right?
Whipped up another preemie hat; working on the decreases for the cupcake hat. I've been putting together my summer projects because we will be migrating northward and I can't be caught w/o projects. LOL I'm thinking I've been a bit ambitious in what I hope to accomplish. We aren't expecting much company this year so it should be primo knitting and reading time
Have a good summer day! Linda
You are right Linda. The little miss is due at the end of July so I made a summery newborn dress and sunhat to go with it.
I couldn't be caught without a project to do either. I agree Thumbs up on reading and knitting time.
It is very warm here today. It was yesterday also. Upper 90's.
Well back to work lunch is over. Jeanette
I started on that shawl now. I found enough thread, I think, to make it work. I'll attach the rows like I did the other shawl, so they will be strips. The fan stitches are interesting, so looks nice. I made a few fan stitches, and are nice.
Maybe we will get a bit of rain tonight and tomorrow- this is a real drought here.
Cupcake hat~done. Preemie Magic Ball hat done; turned out really cute, amazing what you can make with itty bitty balls of leftover yarn . Kimono~1/2 done, just not feeling it. Trying to decide what's next. I'm on a preemie roll so may do another before I tackle a bigger project.
We got some much needed rain Mon. I think the ground sucked that all up in no time and is ready for more. Suppose to hit 90 again tomorrow for day #3 in a row.
I seem to be afflicted with "buying yarnitis" Ever since I got these 1 Skein Wonder books I have been attracting yarn like a magnet Speaking of yarn I need to start a new project. Linda
Linda I have yarnitis buying syndrome also and I don't even have any of the 1 skein wonder books. You have gotten alot accomplished in a short time.
We got some much needed rain also last night 2 1/2 inches and no real storm with it at least in our area. And it has cooled off after 3 days in the 90's.
Hello to everyone that stops in. Have a good day. Jeanette
I better get back working on that shawl.
It has been hot the last month, but rain came for about 20 min. last night, then it just left clouds. I hate this "teasing" with rain. We really need a nice slow "soak" for the plants.
I tried my iPod with this site, and it didn't let me choose font size, color, etc. either. My husband uses a bluetooth keyboard with his iPad so he doesn't have to use the little keyboard on the screen.
It's cloudy, so it may be a good "crochet day" today.
Hello all. Nice day here today, a little break from the 90* temps but still very nice.
Started a toddler rose hat. I'm picking my projects based on the fall craft sale. I have one skein of yarn that I was going to use then as I thought about it decided that will be held for an item for me or perhaps a gift. I can't believe I paid that much for the yarn but then it IS merino yarn. DUH! I'll never be able to sell an item at a price to recoup the price of the yarn. That's OK, something nice for me
We are heading to our summer migration locale. I will not have regular access to a computer so my visits will be hit and miss. Keep each other company, have a safe, fun summer! Happy Yarning!! Linda
Have a nice weekend.
It's hot here (supposed to be 100 tomorrow), no rain in the next week.
