March 26, 2014

Still knitting shawls.  Last week, I turned in two completed knitted shawls.  No photos of them as my camera is still not downloading onto the computer.  In the meantime, I've begun two additional shawls, one in orange shades and the other in blue variegated yarn along with cream and off white. The latter will be finished soon, so I'll then work on the orange one.

Knitting is such a peaceful activity which I so love!  Along with the actual knitting, I enjoy choosing colors for future shawls.  Recently, while sorting through my yarn stash, I spotted two skeins of red.  I then purchased navy blue yarn to add to the red which will make a very cheerful shawl for someone in a nursing home.

Have fun knitting and/or crocheting!

Maybe by the next time I post, we will be rid of the snow which still hasn't melted.  We are experiencing a cold "snap" again here in lower MI. When I got up this AM it was 7 degrees!  Brrr!!!

More Snow and etc.................

Our huge piles of snow had begun to melt late last week. They were looking quite shabby so in a way, it was nice to see new snow covering them.  BUT, 5 inches?  That is what we got.  It is pretty though.  The temperature is supposed to gradually rise this week, so maybe the snow will melt.........I mean, really, really melt!

It is time for spring!
