Daytona Day(s) 

Hey all! This last weekend was a bit exciting! After all of the illnesses that have gone through our home this month I was looking forward to some exciting entertainment. We were expected to get 13 inches of snow on Thursday so I snuggled in with some hot tea and yarn ready for a blizzard and racing. The 2017 NASCAR season started so YAY for the Daytona 500!!! This years races were exciting and nerve racking to watch. I’m so glad that nobody was seriously injured and one of my favorite drivers won!!! While watching all four races I managed to knit 2 hats and I also crocheted 2 skeins of yarn into a new afghan

The first hat will be donated to Scarves for Troops via Operation Gratitude in memory of my loved ones who have passed on.
