There is something about small yarn and smaller needles. You just keep knitting, and knitting, and knitting...and LOOK, you now have one inch of scarf. I love the colors, the yarn is so soft and squishy, but I may not be finishing this scarf anytime soon. LOL
I still think this should be a self-striping yarn...what in the world did I do wrong? LOL
Took a little trip to Michael's, found some very cool wooden stars. A little chalk paint, some wax, BOOM, a new project is born. LOL Pulled out my punch needle and did this little star. It is cream with blue swirls. I've got some little red chenille to put around the outside. I think that will really make it pop...I will get it finished this week and post another picture. You can see the next star in the background. I've started punching that star, it will be dark blue, with a golden circle in the middle and red rays. Just so you know, it is not quite as crooked as it looks in this picture. LOL
Dad is still hanging in there. No talking, but does seem alert when I feed him. I try to keep up a conversation, but sometimes, I have nothing left to say. Sigh.
My son is doing very well. He is teaching Poetry and Rhetoric at the University of Iowa. It is only for this year, so he's starting to plan his next step. He would like to stay in the area...me, I'd like him closer to home. LOL I've started to hint that he should come home next January for a visit. It's never too early to start the nagging process! I've got two weeks of vacation coming in November, but I don't really care to fly. I could drive...but another 4000 miles? And in the snow? Hmmm, I'll have to give that some thought. LOL
Okay, peeps, off to finish my night chores and fall into bed. I wish a happy week for all, be kind to one another.
