HERE'S 3 DAYS I WON'T GET BACK!
My friend, and I won't mention who, gave me this "fabulous cowl pattern"....So I went out and bought this lovely yarn to knit. I was very excited and spent all my spare time for three whole days knitting this sucker!
As you can see from the look on my face....I have no idea what I've created here, but you know when I asked my sweetie....remember the compliments of quilts of the summer...."did you mess it up?" fame....he didn't utter a word...Not one
word! He didn't want to be up the creek again!
Finally, I asked him what did he think it was?
He said that it looked kinda like a rastafarian
hat! So I put it on...see photos...and he just said
that I should let him take a photo and send it to said friend and ask her if this is how it's supposed to look!
I did look on the web for photos of "cowls" and holy cowl (a bit of levity here) none looked like this thing!
So.....tomorrow is bridge day and I am taking it for the girls to see if they can figure out what to do with it.
Oh....now my sweetie is laughing....me too!
I have been knitting the fingerless gloves for the hospital and have about 7 pairs done and I do think I shall continue that endeavour and give up on the aforementioned thingamajig....
I am also making placemats with the rest of that sheet that I cut up last week. I shall have about 10 finished in no time. Quilting is a lot more successful than my knitting.
I have had a few requests for the little bag I made for my mom so I am going to line and quilt the next few.
When she lived in the Virgin Islands (British) she had her boutique which carried many one of a kind items. One of them were little scarfs with her sandpiper logos on them I do have a few left and am thinking that I shall make a bag out of one of the better conditioned ones. I will quilt it and you know that by doing that I am enforcing the fabric.
Our weather has been in the 50s and I can't believe it! Sun every day, I wore sandals again yesterday and didn't even have cold feet! What makes this weather so great is sunshine. We usually get rain in November due to the hurricanes and tropical storms in the south. But not this year...we are blessed.
I did read that the Islands are getting torrential downpours, but if they wait 15 minutes as the saying goes.....is shall pass.
I was thrilled, needless to say that receiving a note from Lindsey (Five Healthy Hearts) after 5 weeks of not blogging saying that all was well with the world made my week! It's amazing how we all connect even though most of us will never meet yet we are friends.
