March wasn’t as productive as I had hoped it would be. I spent the month knitting on this shawl and a sweater. Hopefully next month will show some more progress on my goals.

I love how thick this shawl turned out. It’s going to be warm and cozy. I’d like to knit it again with just the textured pattern.

The sweater that I’m knitting my daughter is coming along beautifully but slowly. I’m almost done with the body!

I’m knitting it to go a long with the hat that I made her earlier. The hat is knit with the speckled yarn only. I am alternating the speckled yarn with the grey tonal yarn on the sweater. I’m planning that bright pink yarn for cuffs on the sleeves.

January 2019

Hey all! it has been one busy month. I rung in the new year with a sinus and respiratory infection that hung on for a while.

I managed to keep a slow and steady pace while working on my goal list for the month. I knit 8 dishcloths, 3 hats, 2 Christmas ornaments, 1 shawl, and 1 pair of socks.

I also worked on a 3rd Christmas ornament, 2 different scrap blankets, my frozen shawl, and a cross stitch. I ripped apart 3 blankets that I had no interest in finishing to simplify my to do list.

Life with our new puppy Lily has been interesting! She doesn’t sleep a lot during the day but goes to bed at 8:30. She gets up to go potty outside around midnight and then she’s up and at it demanding breakfast at 6:00 AM. Lily is sweet and affectionate but also rambunctious and naughty. She’s a good guard dog that hears everything! The cats are not overly impressed by her presence in their lives mostly because she is very aggressive in her attempts to play with them. She just wants to slobber them and they aren’t the least bit interested!

Stay safe and warm!
