I hope all my blog friends have been having a wonderful summer so far. It's been terribly hot and humid down here and from what I hear from family and friends in the north, it's the same up there. I can tell we are getting into the hottest part of living in Florida by our electric bill. Whoa!
I finished another shawl yesterday using one of the MyMelodybyWolltraum yarns I purchased on Etsy from Brandi. This one starts out white, to several shades of peach to a dark red. I love it! The pattern was a Ravelry find called Maid of Honour by Buttonnose Crochet. It's a very easy pattern but I liked how it showed off the different shades of the yarn with the darkest red showing off the shell pattern on the border. When I finished it, I only had about 10 yards left. That's calling it close.
Then I went and purchased some new yarn that I just couldn't resist. The one on the left and the one in the middle are hand dyed by a lady on Etsy. The brown shaded one is a fingering weight and the middle one is a lace weight. Both are waiting to be made into shawls. The one on the right is called Scheepjes Whirl and is a cotton/acrylic fingering weight. I fell in love with the name "Blackcurrant Squeeze Me". Isn't that a great name?
I started a new knitting project. I had these two balls of Rowan Softknit Cotton on hand in a lovely shade of denim blue and decided to make myself a nice cowl out of it. It is so soft and so far a really fun knit.
Now for an update on our furbaby Vallie. She has finished taken all the antibiotic that was needed and the hair has just about all grown in around her eyes. She's looking sweet as can be.....and I think she knows it.
Well that's all for now my friends. I hope all of you are staying cool where you are. I find the older I get, the more the heat bothers me. I wonder how many times I have said I Hate Florida? LOL
