Hello Ginny, Ruth, cj,& Phyl,
I got up late this morning and went to Knit Wits this afternoon. I didn't take Devin as DS was home. There will be lots of other days when I can take him with me. There is a lady in the group who does beautiful knit work. Today she brought a baby set, long pants jacket and cap. She does the most beautiful pattern work. I would never attempt knitting something like that. It would take following the pattern stitch by stitch and with my eye sight it would take forever. Another lady in our group entered her crocheted doily in the state fair. She won first prize and will be entered in the National event. We have some ladies in our gp. who are like professionals their work is perfect.
I took my b/blanket to work on and really didn't get much done but I did get a lot of talking done. That's the fun part. It was cool this morning and overcast. When I came home the sun was shining and there as a slight breeze and the sun was shining. Now I am home for the day.
Ruth, I bought some gray yarn but it was a little too thick for what I wanted but I will be able to use it up. I am still trying to get through the pink yarn I ordered from Lion Brand a while back. For my granny stitch b/blanket I am using yar that I already have. Lion Brand pastel green, white and creamsicle. Those colors look very nice for a b/blanket. The last b/blanket I finished is LB pastel green, white and pink so they are different. One is a V stitch and the one I am working on is granny stitch. I do understand your discomfort and hope you can get some relief soon. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I just noticed your last post and I love rhubarb pie and I just wish I was at your house to have some of your rhubarb and strawberry crumble. Enjoy.
cj, granny stitch blankets seem to be popular now. They are very easy just double crochet 3 times in the one stitch and miss 2 spaces and then do another 3 stitches in the one space. I would also like to try an oblong afghan instead of a square using this granny stitch. I saw a tutorial for that on UTube. I hope all goes well at the quilt show and you get your quilts appraised.
Phyl, sorry you had a restless night. I just hate those kind of nights. I hope spending some time in your playroom and going out to supper with your friends relaxes you and that you sleep better tonight.
Ginny, when is the last day of school for you? Devin is off with DS at the moment I don't know where they went. It wasn't quite warm enough today for the pool though it has warmed up this afternoon. I think having a number of kids is easier than just having 1. I was checking the library calendar this afternoon because they have programs for kids so I hope I can find something there that will interest him. He will have 2 weeks of vacation bible school at the end of July beginning of August. I wish I could put him on a plane and send him to Florida. DGD#! does not work and she likes to go to the beach and she does not have any kids.
Have a good evening. I may check back later.
