After what felt like a warp speed visit to Texas, I’m back at home. My mom loved her birthday scarf! It looks great on her, and she wore it a couple of times while I was there.
Seeing how easy it was to wear and tie differently for different looks made me even more sure I want to knit another one of these.
First, though, I’m going to be knitting my mom a pair of Cupcake Mitletts. I was finishing up my pair on the trip, and she liked them, so we stopped by the local yarn shop, and she picked out some yarn for a pair for her.
Here’s a picture of mine, fresh off the needles. The yarn we got for Mom’s is a pretty, burnt orange color, similar to the color of her scarf.
Yesterday was sort of a disaster travel-wise. Between late flights and missed connections, I didn’t get in until nearly 3:00 am. That’s made today a challenge in terms of productivity. Other than a bit of paper grading, all I’ve managed to accomplish is a batch of cookies for Fiber Guild tomorrow and a little bit of knitting on my Scrap Yarn Advent Calendar Socks.
I’m way behind! Oh, well . . . hopefully, I’ll have time to catch up next week.
Look what else happened today. Snow! The first of the year.
