Well we will see if Blogger is playing nice today. Nope. Of course not. That would be too much to ask. So I will continue to write this posts in shifts, and pray it actually lets me load all my pics. So far I have tried about 30 times (ok, now updated to at least 50, and 3 pics is all you get today. I have had enough!). I think my eye is twitching now grrr....
The hat I told you about yesterday: (Haha this pic is so gumpy. I will try to get a better one later!)
Very simple. Two little gray stripes. He loves it. That's all that matters!
I am also working on a prayer shawl for a friend of mine. She requested one at Bible study one day, so I am going to surprise her with it.
I am using Homespun yarn (not my favorite by a long shot) because that is what she liked. I am using the standard prayer shawl pattern, nothing fancy. I hope she likes the color I chose for her.
I am also working on some socks out of Cherry Tree Hill sportweight yarn. I am still on the first sock....sigh.
Yeah, normally I would have had these done by now. Why, you ask, am I making like no progress? Because I simply hate hate hate this yarn. I normally love CTH yarn, but this sportweight is a whole different animal. It feels like you are knitting with the cruelest cotton imaginable. My hands kill after just a few minutes with it. It says it is still superwash merino, but you would never know it when knitting with it. I don't know if I can even bear to finish these. Maybe I should save it for a future baby hat and booties or something, just so I don't have to deal with it anymore right now. I do have that knee socks yarn waiting lol. (But I am so chicken to try toe-ups. Can ya all send me some bravery?!!!)
