I am still not able to move very well; walking still makes my leg numb so my day is spent at physical therapy, doing my exercises and lately, crocheting and knitting. I completed my shawl :
The pattern called for 2 pockets. I think they are superfluous when being worn (and ,frankly, it is not real comfy to wear) and so I only used 1 pocket. I added the ties to keep the darn thing on me. I don’t think I would waste my time on something like this again. I would look for something lacier and triangular.
I am also doing mindless crocheting: wash cloths and pot holders. I pulled out some scrap cotton yarn and made these:
I am expanding my horizons and going back to sewing very soon (like tomorrow!!). I have found that sitting in front of my machine is not that difficult if I pace myself at cutting and ironing.
Yes, I love my grandchildren but this is a little different. Over at Meet Me at Mikes Pip is making a granny square a day so I thought I would join her. I haven’t started yet but here is a granny square blanket that I made a couple years ago:
I want to make the new one a little more colorful and I plan to try some different patterns. I will post pictures as soon as I have a few.
Speaking of Granny Time I have not mentioned that my oldest, Adrienne and her husband Joe are expecting! She is due in early July and we are very excited. Time for a new baby quilt!
