Knitter's Square closing

I just recently read on Facebook that Knitter's Square is closing. I am surprised and confused.  We will no longer have a yarn shop in the area.  It truly makes me sad.

Nerdy Knittin'

When we moved my personal pink camo dice bag suffered water damage. I was not able to salvage it at all, so I washed my dice off and put them in a big zip lock bag when they were dry. We've been playing MTG with friends and I need my dice for life total and token counters. A dice bag is just a simple drawstring bag, but I enjoy making them. My mind has been spinning with ideas for embellishment. I will share the pictures as soon as they are completed

Super Bowl Sunday

I have been away from my blog for far too long. DH and I moved into our very own apartment a few months ago. We are still organizing. I have been doing some research on container gardening since we have a nice patio that gets the afternoon sun. Hmmm, fresh herbs, tomatoes and squash sound good. I just finished a hat of my own design. I am almost finished with a math cowl. I am getting back into designing. I lost my design note book 1 1/2 years ago when my Mom passed away. I miss my Mom. I was able to give her a prayer shawl that I made in her favorite color, red, the Christmas before she passed away. The pattern was Summer Flies. Well, the game is starting. The kitchen is clean and we're drinking sweet mint tea. DH is making shrimp alfredo during halftime. Life is good.

Adventures in Chunky yarn

I found a few skeins of chunky yarn in my stash. I hope to have a couple cowls when the dust settles. My first skirmish is with a ball of super chunky, so far it is winning. Ah, back to knitting...

It is finished!

I finally finished the cowl. When I finished weaving in the ends I lifted my arms and shouted "it is finished!" So  much has happened over the last few weeks and I haven't been in a good space. I lost my Mom, my MIL had emergency surgery, and it was the 1-year anniversary of my Grandmother's passing.  My health hasn't been at it's best. I think that things are turning around a bit.
