Aside from the fact that there was TONS of smoke in the air on the beach, it was a perfect 4th of July night!
It has now become a tradition I guess you could say. My mom comes to visit every year for the 4th of July holiday. We always have a great time. She crochets, and works on cutting fabric for her quilt projects, and I knit and we both laugh and gab A LOT! This year it also included a Murder She Wrote marathon playing on TV while we gabbed. LOL Good times. I was so happy to be able to give her the sweater that I have been working on FOREVER! And did I take a picture of her in it? Of course not. I can’t believe I didn’t take a picture. So I’ll have to go visit her soon to get one. I can say that it was the perfect length and looked beautiful on her.
Mom and I went to Elma for her to get more fabric… now I know where I get it from. She buys fabric, like I buy yarn! Daughter like mother. I couldn’t help myself and I bought just a little bit of yarn. 3 skeins of Serenity Garden Yarn. In these wonderfully colors. It’s 100% Microfiber, and on Sunday I started a scarf. It’s called 28’s Cousin 53, I’m on row 44 now. Each row from 44 to 53 has 514 sts!!!! That’s a lot of stitches. My goal is to have it done this weekend so I can ONE, wear it next week. And TWO, get started on a pair of socks!
This is a nice little pattern that I have been eyeing for sometime now and just wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it in a wonderfully soft yarn or something fun and whimsical… fun won!
My other finished project is the gorgeous Mezquita shawl. I finished this one and blocked and got to wear it to work this week. It is so soft and yummy.
This was a really nice knitting project. When I got to the end of pattern instead of doing the bind-off I added 5 seed stitch rows to help keep it from rolling so much. It’s seems to have done the trick for the most part. I love this scarf!
OK, back to knitting. I’ll post more later! Looks like we are going to have a sunny and wonderful weekend!
