No harm, no foul! Check hubby’s comments on my last post. They’re hilarious. I was a little alarmed until I remembered that my cashmere shawl was draped across the back of the chair The errant 60" cable finally arrived from Knitpicks and I was able to get a good photo (dog added for scale):
I really would like to get this done before the start of the Forest Path Stole-a-long, but doubt that will happen. The rows are getting really, really L…O…N…G. But this yarn is just heaven to work with.
I’ll mail this off this week along with a pair of fingerless mitts. Not sure yet what my next CIC project will be, but I’ve got lots of green Cascade 220 left over.
And of course, I’ve been sewing, sewing! Here is my first official completed project:
Way cute if I say so myself! I don’t know if the little buttons show up very well in the picture, but they say "U.S.A." And look at the inside of the little purse:
I’ve given up making cute little hats for Izzy. She just won’t wear them. But I have a feeling she will tote around a cute little purse. Today I’ve been working on a quilt top that I found while cleaning out my sewing room. Many years ago my mother-in-law wanted to make a Lone Star quilt and I helped her get started. She never finished it and when she first moved into assisted living, I offered to do it for her. She said she really wanted to finish it herself. Now she has moved from assisted living into full time adult care and no longer has the pnysical capabilities to sew so now I am going to finish it for her and give it to her for Mother’s Day. I am very excited about this project! I know it will please her so much. I’m off to attach the borders and maybe I’ll have a picture for you next week.
