I just remembered that this is a knitting (and quilting) blog! I have a finished project to show you!
The Eyelet Cardi is finished. I used Schachenmayr nomotta Denim. I thought it was nice yarn to work with, although it had no give because it’s cotton! I still need a button and some grosgrain ribbon. The pattern mentioned that if the front still curled, I could sew ribbon on the back. Guess what?
It still curls.
I took this shot for the flowers in the background, but I do like the raglan increases in this pattern.
It’s great to be home! After three weeks and 5,000 miles, our home feels wonderful. The only problem was the flower beds full of weeds. Yesterday we went to church, sat around and drank coffee and watched Nascar started weeding. My Hero weeded and I watched Nascar. He’d look in through the window occasionally to check up on the race. After the race, Frankie and I went and bought flowers and started planting. By evening, everything was weeded, planted, and mulched.
Today Dreamboy is mowing and Superblonde is pressure washing the patio. My plan was to sit outside and knit tomorrow morning, but the forecast is for rain. That’s ok, because I’m feeling the urge to quilt! My mom tried to clean my sewing room! (She was at our house for a while while we were gone.) I’m pretty sure she decided it was an exercise in frustration. If I clean off my cutting table, I can get busy.
There’s also more knitting going on.
My next project? Figuring out lunch for these kids. That’s what I always dread when school is out. One kid is asking for a hot dog. I think I can handle that!
