.I finished my grand-daughter’s afghan!! It was taken from the Triple Chevron Lace shawl pattern at knitting on the net and adjusted to be an afghan. She is pretty happy as you can see from the picture. She was glad to finally have it after waiting for about a year :P. She said it was very soft and way cool :).
She spent the day with me today because she was out of school and I wasn’t working today. We walked about 1/2 mile to go to McDonalds for lunch (because my car is too scary to drive :P). We also baked chocolate chip cookies. Yummy :). She helped me move my sewing machine and sewing table into the spare bedroom since my son decided to stay close to where his daughter is (he lives on the other side of the state from me). So I now have my sewing/craft room, still have stuff to do to make it a functional room tho, but the important stuff is in there :).
I will now work on finishing spinning that hand dyed superwash merino roving, that had been calling to me and I’ve had to give the cold shoulder to until I finished the afghan. Now I won’t ignore it anymore :). There is a pattern for some slippers I’d like to knit up for my youngest grand-children, but I have to wait until I get the yarn for it. I need acrylic yarn for them. My daughter doesn’t appreciate specialized care for their things, because she works full time and says she doesn’t have the time to fuss over hand washing things they will abuse anyway :P.
Oh Yeah, I know it isn’t really spring yet, but it’s March and we have been in the 40′s here this week and I’m soooooo happy!!! So to me it is SPRING!! Makes me want to go out and start a garden :).
