Sunday Greetings to you all.
Another week has flown by and now we find ourselves in February already!
I had a busy work week but thankfully a fairly calm weekend as I think I am fighting a bug--the same bug which is leveling everyone at work and many of our patients. I feel better today than I did yesterday so I am taking this as a good sign. I plan to just knit all afternoon and watch parts of that American event we call The Super Bowl, and then, Downton Abbey tonight. I have tomorrow off from work and I plan to have a pretty quiet day then also.
I decided, at the last minute to knit up a little baby gift for a coworker, and completed all those dreaded finishing tasks on it yesterday. I used Becky's Baby Booties and Jack's Button Hat for this little newborn sized set.
In other knitting news, I abandoned my socks for the KAL I was hoping to participate in. I just wasn't feeling the love at this time---I am feeling pressure to get this little Fiona's Top started for my baby Rosie.
I am making the newborn size so it really needs to be ready when she is born in early May. I have mentioned before that this pattern is scary to me--the comments found on the pattern page are not all that favorable. But the owner if my lys has knit it several times and assured me I could do it. I have finished the yoke and am now starting the first back section and first lace repeat. I foresee many, many lifelines inserted along the way!
While browsing blogs yesterday, I noticed a growing love for knitted and crocheted hearts---and imagine my delight when I found these cute little ones, with an accompanying tutorial! I think I might try to tackle one or more....
I found this on Linda's blog, Natural Suburbia---Enjoy!
I leave you with a pretty little photo of the view we had a couple of weekends ago when my husband took me away for a weekend. We wen to Keyport Washington, a small little town right up against a naval base. My parents were married close to here over 50 years ago when my Dad was in the Navy.
Have a super week!
