One Hook, Two Needles, and the Fun is On

IMG_3889Who is this?  Gari returning from the land of silence.  It seems that I wasn’t getting much done so there was nothing to write about.  Then I decided I better figure out a way to get on the stick and thus this picture was born. 

So, what is this? This is me crocheting.  I watched Staci’s video on the afghan stitch and remembered when I tried it many, many years ago.  I had written instructions and NEVER could figure out how to do it.  One viewing of the video and it was clear as glass.  So here is the beginning of a baby afghan.  I would be making a baby quilt but right now I can’t stand for long periods so cutting fabric and/or quilting is not happening here for a while.

I did finish the sleep socks DH asked me to knit him.

And they seem to be working, don’t they? 

And this is our nature study photo for today.  DH pointed out this perfect spider web made on the lip of a bucket.  Can you see it?

Here is a chot from a different angle.  I love the way the sun glinted in a perfect circle with the tiny spider as part of the circle.

I am going to see my doctor in January and then maybe we will find a way to fix my hips and I will be fully back in quilting business.  Meanwhile I am going to spend this weekend and next week trying to catch up on Bonnie Hunter’s Grand Illusion Mystery, perhaps a smaller version than hers.  Wish me luck.  Gari

Linking with Patchwork Times.

Those sleep socks certainly worked well. LOL

Those sleep socks must have magic knitted into them! lol Spider web was pretty too. Good luck on BH mystery. I'm keeping copies but life is too busy to start that this time.
Good luck with your doctor's meeting.

Those sleep socks look like they did the trick. I wonder if they would help insomniacs? The spider web is awesome. I enjoy taking photos of webs too but mine usually aren't as good as yours.
