I finished the cowl and love it. And I will say that I will love it even more this winter. I take our dogs out early every morning and I HATE to get out of a warm bed and then have my neck get cold. So this is going to get a real workout.
And this is my next knitting project. Doesn’t look like a sock, does it? The first thing I am having to learn is how to handle 4 double pointed needles all at the same time. Believe me this is a talent I do not have so I am having to learn it as a “skill.” Also these are very small needles and a very small yarn. There will not be a sock any time soon.
I did get most of the Weave quilt top done. I sewed the rows 2 at a time and have all but two to sew onto the rest and it will be ready for quilting.
Speaking of quilting, this is the part of my HQ that I think is the offending tension regulator. So today, in a last ditch effort to fix it myself, I took it all apart. I found some sticky stuff between two parts so I cleaned it off, shined up everything, and then put it back together. But I couldn’t test it because a storm came up with thunder and lightening: I will try tomorrow.
And I just have to share this. This is DH in his lawn mowing costume. We live on 5 acres with lots of trees and bushes. DH has mown out several trails through the woods and this outfit keeps bugs away from him. I, however, just laugh when I seen him. And see, even he is laughing.
And that’s what it’s like around here, just a laugh a minute.
