Look what I saw on Sunday. One of the pumpkin hats I knitted being worn by a sweet baby boy. It made my day!
I inherited this ball of yarn from my mother-in-law's stash. It is a two-ply wool that I think will work well for a shawl. I didn't know how much yardage there was though, so I used the kniddy noddy to guesstimate and wound it into center pull cakes.
There is close to 1000 yards--enough for most shawls. I had Flower Basket Shawl in mind, thinking I had the pattern, but I don't. Guess I'll have to buy it.
I knitted two headbands. I'll keep one in the jeep and one in the truck. That way I'll always have something with me to keep my ears warm--no more improvising. The patterns I used are Super Simple Knit Headband and You Stole My Heart Band (minus the beads). The yarn is Mountain Colors. The colorways are a mystery to me as they were mill ends and were not labeled. I used two strands held together and size US 8 (5 mm) needles.
Several weeks ago we were treated to a beautiful rainbow after a light shower. The picture got left in the camera and I forgot all about it until now.
May God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and and answer for each prayer.
