I haven’t done much since the last post. I have had some health issues dealing with some “digestive issues” and that is as far as I am going to go.
I have mostly been knitting and crocheting. I am still working on my sister’s lacy crocheted summer top. It is now November and there is snow on the ground and it is cold enough for the dog to wear its sweater and booties but I am still working on her top. The pattern came out of a magazine that was touting “Quick Weekend projects”. I can only assume now that they meant they took 48 hours of solid work.
The dog sweater I knitted last spring fits well – at least it did until the snow flew and it got wet. Then it stretched and the dog was walking up into the sweater with its hind legs. She would sit down and whimper in confusion until I untangled her legs and rolled it up a bit. I think I am going to crotchet some elastic into the band and some of the stomach area.
The knitting I was doing was for our yarn bombing group. We all created poppies to yarn storm Valour Place, the place where wounded soldiers and their families can stay when they get therapy at the Glenrose. They made 1111 poppies in all, I made ….. 6… but they are big and they sparkle!
