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.

Ok so much for the new blog. I am now able to write a post with my kindle. It is a little tricky. I am visiting my Mom in NC. She had a stroke. I have been working on a hat, a shawl, and a ruffle scarf. I will post more soon!
