I finished my lacy scarf and it turned out so nice. I did need to block it to get most of the curl out of it so that the lace pattern could be best seen. I also started a new scarf called the Misti Chunky Ribs and Ruffles Scarf with Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky 100% Baby Alpaca yarn. Oh, is this stuff ever yummy and soft, and so far, the scarf is extremely easy and fun to knit. I have a feeling this will be like potato chips; can't make just one!
I'm much relieved that the weather is finally cooling off here in Southern California, although it's still very dry making hand lotion very necessary. I can't even begin to count the number of hand creams and lotions that I own!
I don't know when I'll be getting back to cross stitching again...knitting is just so much fun, but I am feeling the tug to take thread and needle in hand again very soon. I especially enjoy samplers, in particular the Quaker motifs and look forward to stitch a long that I joined for January called Beatrix Potter Sampler. Such a pretty design.
But in the meantime, I knit...finished one, and now have started another...does it ever end??
Do empty nesters close the bedroom door?
