Goodness gracious, I haven't been here forever. Life has been busy. I have made progress in the knitting department. That is, if you call starting way too many projects at the same time progress. I did manage to finish two more Christmas presents.
A pair of socks
A neck warmer for a friend. This is her favorite color. After having dinner out one night, I dragged my husband to the craft store while I tried to find buttons for this project. These were HIS choice. Not bad, eh?
Some of my knitting friends and I have started this as a knit-along. It is quite a challenge. The yarn is lace weight and it's like knitting with thread! The progress has been slow.
How thin is this thread? It only takes two of these balls to make a whole sweater!
I started a Honey Cowl for my daughter. For the non-knitters, this is the hot pattern this season. It seems that everyone has knitted a Honey Cowl. It's the kind that you double up around the neck (Unless you're The Incredible Hulk).
It has a rolled edge, then this lovely pattern for another 11 inches, then another rolled edge. It's easy, but very interesting.
What's that? Some non-knitting news?...
Once again, we here in Maryland are experiencing a mild Winter. Things are beginning to pop up from the earth.
Inside, things are about to pop, too. This amaryllis is bout to burst. I'll post a bloom when it comes out.
Last night, my daughter went out with friends. While driving home through the neighborhood, she saw a deer
cross her path. She brought her car to a complete stop to let it run by. While at a stop, another bigger deer ran full force into her car!!
The damage: broken headlight, messed up bumper, dent on side. But the good news is that she's ok. The deer fell down, got back up and ran off.
It did leave a few hairs behind in various cracks.
Hope you all had great holidays, and that you are happy and healthy in 2013!
