I got a touch of startitis, and I started a new scarf for my cousin's daughter, Lena. They live in Germany. Lena had told me a few months back that she wears a scarf every day and that she likes scarves with 'thick wool'. So I went stash diving and found 3 skeins of Malabrigo worsted weight in Deja Vu colorway. I am holding it double to make it 'really thick'. I am also doing this scarf on size US15 needles, so it goes really quick. I ordered 2 more skeins (I think it will take 4 to finish the scarf) and with the one extra, I am going to make a matching cabled hat. The pattern is from a lady on my LSSK group...she is awesome and always makes the greatest patterns. It is called the Austin Slouchy Cable Beanie. I have not started it yet, but it will be awesome when done. Here is the scarf (I started on Sunday and it is going really quick):
My SNB group all finished their Lazy Girl Shawls. I am especially proud of Erin and Carol who each finished in the last hours......and Erin won the prize of multicolored yarn that Raquel donated, along with the stitch markers that Jo made. Congrats Erin!
I am not sure if I have mentioned this on my blog, but my daughter started Barber College. She wants to be a barber and work her way through College to get her accounting degree. Anyway, she decided to cut Antonio's hair this weekend. It was his first hair cut and her first performance of a hair cut.....he did a lot of wiggling and 'not staying still'. She cut the palm of her hand (those are some sharp scissors) but she got it all done. It made his hair even curlier than before. I love his deep blue eyes and curly hair!
Lastly I leave you with the cutest picture of Dory from Finding Nemo. When I watch Antonio, we watch Finding Nemo A LOT! I love the part where Dory says "Just keep swimming, Just keep swimming...." and I often sing it to Antonio. Well, another lady from LSSK found this and I just had to steal it....Thank you Alice!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
