Fire, knitting and the furry beasts.In most parts of the country, April showers bring May flowers.
In Colorado, lack of showers brings wildfires. There were at least three wildfires burning around here today.
Here are some shots of what the sky looked like when I got home:
It looks cloudy, but that’s smoke.
My second cuff down sock is coming along nicely:
And, Christy taught me toe up socks!
I’m using yarn that Brie gave me. I love this yarn!
Also new on the needles is the Spring Blanket:
Most of my knitting these days is focused on squares for Grace:
I’m really enjoying making these quick little projects. I love experimenting with different yarns, needles sizes and patterns. These are all made out of cotton or wool yarn and size 7 or 8 needles. I’m using some patterns I’ve found on the web and making some up as I go along.
Tomorrow my knitting buddy Felicia is having surgery. If you have a minute, could you stop by and wish her well? Thank you.
I’ll end this post with some adorable (if I do say so myself) puppy pictures. Don’t you just love it when dogs sleep all cuddled up together?
