Hello friends on this beautiful Sunday. We had some really bad thunderstorms last nite here in Orlando and I know they really named Florida correctly....the Lightning Capital of the U.S. Poor Vallie was shaking and not letting me get 3 feet from her all evening.
I have been trying to keep busy and I received an order for two of my small round bags. I thought I would share them with you.
They are for a customer at Needle Orts and I must admit, the older I get the more I like orange. It's such a nice clean color and goes with alot of different colors.
Next up are some new patterns I picked up. I'm shameless.
As if I have enough time left to stitch all of these. I'm back to working on Cherry Hollow Farm by Stacey Nash. It's slow going but I really want to finish this one. I'll post a picture soon.
Then I discovered that when I start shaking if I knit a bit my shaking stops so I started a cowl for myself. I have several solid color crew neck slip over sweaters and I found a chunky weight yarn that has every color of the rainbow....and then some.
It's an Ella Rae yarn called Lace Merino Chunky and it's 100% wool but so soft. The pattern is a very easy one. Use size 10.5 needles and cast on 140 stitches. Knit 1 round, k1 p1 on next round, repeat these two rounds till you run out of yarn. I have two balls of this so mine will be about 10 inches high by about 25 inches around. It's a nice relaxing knit and stops the shakes for awhile so I can cross stitch for a little bit more. I don't know why this works but it does for me.
I hope all of you have a fantastic week and please say a blessing on Tuesday morning for my DH.
Blessings Upon You, Barbara
