I have been super busy. My Grandson, Antonio, had to go tot he Emergency room twice about a week ago. Long story short, he has RSV....he has been out of daycare this past week (the 14th to 18th)....Yesterday was his first day back and he is doing much better. When my daughter was taking him to his great grandmother's house one day for baby sitting, she mentioned that he needed a beanie and she could buy one for him....but my daughter said "No, that is ok. My mom will make him one." and so the RSV Beanie was invented. I hope to get pictures of him modeling it and then I will post the pattern here.
My allergies have been bothering me since mid December....but this past weekend was one of the worst weekends I have had in a while (lots and lots of kleenex used). But I still had a nice long weekend and I got through the 1/2 way point of my Lazy Girl Shawl. I had originally set yesterday as the deadline for this KAL, but thank goodness we bumped the finish date to March 1.
I am still doing 2 pairs of socks this month. One is a KAL where I only get the clues on Thursdays and it needs to be finished by the 31st.
And one I can finish by February 28th and still be eligible. I am really loving the way the yarn looks on the red/tan/orange.
A couple of weeks ago I ordered 3 sets of the Lace Colourbag by Wollmeise (link here)...well, they were on my desk when I got to work today. I had ordered 3 sets because I had a feeling that two of my knitting buddies would want one each.....boy was I right....Darlene snagged up Set Number One and Evelyn took Set number Eleven which left me with Set Number Eight (that has the tandoori masala yarn of course!) I love the little bag it came in ;)
Oh Yeah....I forgot to tell you guys....a while back I was looking through the solid socks group on ravelry for January socks (January's color is yellow) and I saw 3 or 4 pairs of socks being made with this color called "School Bus On Acid". I loved it so I inquired where they all got it. Well, it turns out it was a sock club and I could not get the yarn. There was a lady that contacted me and said that it was a long story but she ended up with 2 and she would send it to me if I sent her my address. Well, I did send her my address and she is SOOOOOO awesome to send it to me. I love it and the picture does not do it justice! Thank you Jeny from Scotland!!! I can't wait to make socks with it.
Lastly, a knitting friend of mine posted this on my facebook page and said "This is for you!".....I love her for thinking of me!
Happy Tuesday everyone....I hope to post more progress soon!
