Yarn Along: Ring Around the Rosy!
Today is a day for blurry photographs, evidently. I will try to get a better picture taken of this, but I wanted to show my lovely Ring Around the Rosy Scarf that is finished! I wish I had made it about two inches shorter, but I am happy with it. I am still contemplating making another scarf with charcoal, grey, and wine colored yarn as the contrast to the ruffled roses at the end.
Here is a blurry, dark photo of Nejat in her Saint Catherine. I want to get a nice, outdoor picture of her in it, but was impatient. It isn't her birthday yet, but that's okay, because she doesn't know when her birthday is.
My other knitting is pretty mundane; I'm working on the burp cloth for the free pattern to be given out when my April Hat and Vest are published. I'm also crocheting a silly, little gift for Rich for Father's Day. I have plans to crochet a long distance hug for a friend of mine from high school and college who recently lost her husband of 16 1/2 years. We don't live near her, so I thought I could send her something that she could feel that would show her our love. She is only a year older than I am, and could use your prayers.
After seeing another person in the yarn along reading Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting, I put it on hold at our library. It is nice, easily digested, small bites of stories. Which is my speed right now. I can pick it up, read a vignette and put it down again. I don't care for each story, but I also don't feel obligated to read stories I don't find interesting or compelling. So, this and Christ in His Saints are my main reading right now.
We used to live right on the Sound, but moved east about four and a half years ago.
