and Valentine hued, is my latest FO:
It is also a welcome bit of fabulous color for someone who is winter pale and somewhat anemic.
I was soooo tempted to use the pattern designer's colors, but intead went with pinks/purples from the stash and now have the perfect Valentine themed accessory.
I would call it Stormy Heart, except my heart is not stormy, it is content.
The scarf/stole is made with short row sections of 2 strands of Kid Silk Haze seperated by tiny bands of 1 strand in the main color. It works up very quickly (4 ish days) if you can count and not have to stop and rip. The original has beaded sections, but I did not want to fiddle with beads.
I loves it:
In other news, I am continuing to recover from finishing chemo. My blood count was down so I had a little blood doping session yesterday. Today, I have accomplished lots of pesky tasks that I kept putting off - like taxes, financial aid forms, dusting and tomorrow, I should be able to handle a very busy day without yawning.
My day will start with getting Griff to school, followed by two appointments, followed by the 360 mile round trip to pick up Connor for his break week (yay!), followed by going back out to pick up Griff from the Ski Club bus at midnight.
Saturday will include a very early drive to the airport to send Griff off for his break week in New Hampshire with Gary's sister and her Ed. Sometime between now and then, I have to call Gary's sister about a bus ticket snafu, I have been putting that one off.
And in other, other news, the new neighbors arrived on Saturday in the middle of a blizzard. So far, none of us have set eyes on them, we think they are nocturnal. It's all good though, life without the CB's is life without having to worry about what insult they will hurl, or worse.
And finally, are we still on baby watch? I really did not expect to make and deliver a baby gift before the dear one arrived, but apparently I did.
For our Kitten and babe:
It's a Rainbow Ripple Blanket (without the rainbow) worked in Noro Taiyo Sock. I used this yarn because of the long color changes and the 50% cotton content, perfect for a warm weather baby.
So anyway, that's what's been going on, I'll be back soon with more, Happy Valentines Day!
