The magic is that I have gotten just past the sleeves: can you see them? Now I will be just doing SS down the body until I get to the band.
I did finish my socks today. I love how the fit and feel. I am going to start another pair as soon as I find my other worsted weight yarn.
Can you see the bind off? It is Judy’s Magic Bind Off which makes for a very stretchy bind off. For some reason I had difficulty getting my fingers to follow the directions. But after a little while of working it I could see what the yarn was doing and it was easy.
And I am moving along with my scarf. I started over with a thinner scarf, one that will fit around my neck better. I am about a third of the way done and really liking it. I didn’t realize that there would be bands of color change until I took this picture.
I didn’t unravel the wider piece I showed last week, I bound if off and am using it as a lap piece under my laptop. It is about the size of a placemat and fits the foot of my Surface which has been making grooves in my legs.
Oh, and I completed another dish cloth.
This is a picture of a bobcat moving dirt in our back yard. We had 5 trees taken down and the stumps ground and then they filled all the holes with that mound of dirt which is now a flat piece of ground.
However that was not the best part of the day. The son of the owner of the company asked me how much I would charge to make some children’s charity quilts. He said his son has leukemia and has been given some quilts when he is in the hospital. He said he would like to “pay it back” with quilts for the other children there. I offered to make them for free but he insisted he wanted to pay for them so we will be negotiating sometime later. I can’t tell you how good it made me feel to be able to assist him.
Well, it is time to link up with Patchwork Times and begin our weekend. Hope everyone has great plans and they all work out. Gari
