This is where I have been. In every moment when I have not been required to cook, clean, or cuddle…..or work *but that doesn ‘t fit into my alliteration* I have been madly crocheting away to finish my October Leaves Shawl. And I do have to say that I am quite pleased with myself about this one. Me and the boys are spending the weekend in Nakusp and this shawl was a gift for my Auntie who lives there….or here, since Nakusp is where I am at the moment…. The shawl was finished in time for the test deadline, and in time to be wrapped and gifted. It was a little painful giving this away, I really do love it, but give it away I did, and my auntie loves it too! And a few more beauty shots.
Try taking a picture of a shawl named October Leaves in January…..it is a bit tough to get the mood right.
What else have I been up to? In A Spin of course!
I got an awesome china cabinet for only $75 so finally some of the boxes of pretties in my garage can be unpacked. Facebook buy and sell sites, they are the best. Jason says I need to stop buying stuff online, but I keep finding such great deals, and it’s all local stuff so no shipping and waiting, just bring cash and take it home, so how am I supossed to stop? It is highly addicting.
I bought some tulips to bring some spring into my house, since I took this picture they have already lost all their petals, so I guess I will have to find some new flowers where I get home.
I have started knitting. Half a dishcloth to be exact. In the spirit of knitting and stashbusting in the new year, I have a huge ball of worsted cotton in a colorway called Key Lime Pie *which is a lot bit awesome!* and a couple of small balls of blue and I am pretty much going to knit dishcloths until they are all gone. I figure it is just like making large swatches and I can get myself accustomed to the motions of knitting and experiment a bit while I am at it. Because dishcloths are the one thing that you really can screw up and they can still be totally useful.
I have also started on my baby blanket based on the Pop Blanket, and when I have more than one square completed I will definatly post some pictures of it.
I hope everyone has a most wonderful weekend!
