Well I didn't expect to be gone this long again, but the week got busy busy busy. Some of it was productive, I got the storage room almost whipped into shape and cleared some more stuff out of the garage. And some was social, I had a lot of visitors and that was so much fun.
On the knitting front, I started a new shawl. This pattern is Cladonia and this is the third shawl I've made with this pattern. You can see it here.
The white yarn is a Cascade Heritage Sock yarn. The variegated yellow is from Jwrayco and is called Flowers on the Beach. Both were in my stash and I rediscovered them when I was reorganizing last week.
I think I will add some goldy green as an accent on the lace edge part when I get that far.
On the social front I was surprised with several wonderful gifts. On Monday I returned home from doing errands to find this box on my doorstep, Pretty box and bow!
And inside there were SEVEN skeins of that Amazing yarn that I love so much. I see more cowls in my future and maybe a shawl or two. THANK YOU Mary Ann! It made my day!
And on Tuesday my BFF Stephie showed up to go to lunch with a goodie bag for me. Inside I found this adorable chicken timer and a spatula with a chicken perched on the end.
But the chicken I love the best is the one that now lives in my kitchen sink.
Isn't this a hoot?? Twice this week someone has gone to put something in the sink and has been surprised to see this little chick. It makes me smile every time I turn on the water.
So I'm hoping to get some sewing and stitching done this weekend. I haven't spent any quality time with my Juki in almost 2 weeks. I miss it!
Happy stitching... and knitting!
