I made a little progress on my first bright red House Targaryen sock.....
Wow - you can tell I haven't worked with those DPNs in a while! My tension is wacky in a few places there on the cuff - LOL!!! I tend to have some problems with purl stitches from one DPN to the next. Hopefully that will repair in the blocking process :)
I haven't started the Swing Cowl yet because I want to be able to give it my full attention until I get comfortable with it, and there just hasn't been an evening this week where I could do that. I really want to start this one soon though, before the cold weather is over. UPDATE: Denise has finished hers and shows a picture in today's post - YUMMY!!!!!
This was one of those weeks where I had somewhere else to be other than at home almost every day. Fun stuff usually - sit-n-sews, bookclub, etc. - but it does cut my days up and leaves me feeling like I'm running behind in the evenings. And instead of peacefully knitting as usual, I spent most of my evenings preparing quilting projects for the next day. I've also been spending some quality time with my new EQ7 software, learning how to use it - yikes!!! Talk about a learning curve!!! But it's beginning to come together :)
And speaking of evenings, was anyone else devastated by the events in this week's episode of Downton Abbey????? I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, but if you haven't, be warned - it's very emotional! There was quite a lively discussion among friends on FB this week! I had real difficulty getting to sleep that night......
On a brighter note, I'd love to share a photo of one of my grandkitties that I took while visiting with family during the holidays. This is Willow.....
Isn't she beautiful? And the sweetest little creature on earth!!! Willow belongs to Hudson and his mom, and she has a cat-brother and a dog-sister. She couldn't be a better pet for a little two-year-old! I was truly impressed with her patience with Hudson; she never lashes out when he gets too rough. She and I became great friends during the visit :*)
Now, I'm off to play with the EQ7 some more and then maybe jump into my blue scraps for the January Rainbow Scrap Challenge .... I'm hoping to share a BLUE Owl tomorrow :*)
