Odds and ends............

Lately, I've been trying to finish up some projects, both knitted and crocheted.  Also, some quilting projects.

I've made a few knitted preemie baby hats for charity and plan to make a couple more.  Made a long scarf for a friend with some yarn she chose recently.  Made several knitted dishcloths for another friend.  I am knitting a shawl for myself (about half done now) with a pretty cream yarn.  I did make a potato chip scarf for myself in a beautiful yarn colorway called "Toasted Marshmallow".  Will take some photos of these things soon and post them here.

I've purchased enough yarn to get started on a couple prayer shawls in the knitting group I belong to.  First meeting is Oct. 1st.  Looking forward to seeing the other gals.

That's it for now.

Hope you've had a great weekend!

Remembering 9/11/01..........

Remembering 9/11/01 with sadness and with hope.

So many lives have been lost since 9/11.....the war seems never to be over.

Hoping for better, safer times.

HAPPY LABOR DAY!!! Welcome September!!!

Today's weather was perfect........much less humidity, cool breezes, bright sunshine.  What more could I have asked for?!!!  As the past few nights were quite stuffy, causing restlessness, I think we're in for a good night for sleeping!

As far as handwork, I finished off a potato chip scarf a few nights ago, then began a prayer shawl in a soft light cream yarn.  So far, I've knitted about 9 inches.  Hopefully, the 2 skeins will be enough.  Otherwise, I'll be yarn shopping again.  When the cream one is finished, I'll begin a light dusty aqua (called azure) shawl.  I purchased a variegated yarn to use as a secondary color, which is beautifully colored shades of dusty light and dark aquas mixed in with shades of off white.

Happy knitting!
