Winter Blues

I took a knitting class at a really neat place called Loopy Yarns on the south side of Chicago. After a few weeks and a little drama I finished my scarf and hat. It was very stressful for me because I had to pay attention. Knit five pearl five over and over and over and over. Ugh So I felt like I needed to have some needle success and ended making a granny afghan. I just could not stop once I started! So there it is. I made the squares larger which gave it a bit of a modern twist but it really is drab. That's OK it pulled me through January and February. Amen to that!

I wouldn't be able to do that if you held a gun to my head....But you, Deb, are so creative and talented. I love it that you had trouble paying attention -- don't you give your students a hard time for that???

Hey, I've seen that afghan and it's not dreary at all! Nothing you make is ever dull. Yeah, okay, the photo's dreary but the afghan's actually very colorful - I like it - well worth your blood, sweat and tears.
