The knitting bug is still with me.
Sadly, I had to abandon the green sweater (my unstable Audrey - maybe I should have called it something else). It was turning out too big and I spotted a considerable error, so I will be unraveling it and either using the wool for another project or restarting with smaller needles or a smaller size...I'm not quite sure yet. It kind of depressed me as I had got quite far, so I've decided to just wait and think about it for awhile.
In the meantime I started another sweater. This one is by designer Elsebeth Lavold and is called "Tilia". I am knitting it in her wool called Silky Wool in a brilliant Blue. Blue is not normally a colour I choose for myself but it was on sale and I'm a sucker for sales.
Not too far along yet, but a good start.
I pulled this out and pinned it so you can see the pattern emerging
Update on Chelsea's Project
I am starting to receive the completed squares for Chelsea's Project. I have 7 of them now and they all look stunning. 13 more to go. I can't start putting them together until I get them all though and we're thinking that probably won't happen till around June nowl Once I get all 20 squares I'll be going to the fabric store to find a fabric to separate them with and then a complimentary border print....and then voila...it'll be sewn together, quilted and then shipped off to Chelsea's mom in New Orleans.
My amazing son
A few posts back I wrote about how Greg and I were travelling home from Utah and stopped in Mt Vernon Washington to see if we could find Richard who was Riding in the "Ride to Conquer Cancer" from Vancouver to Seattle. This was in June of 2011.
Well, he's doing it again this year and decided to make a video to try and raise awareness and sponsors for the event. This video is one of the funniest things I have seen on You-Tube (Ok, I'm a little partial because it's my kid, but what the heck)...You MUST watch it !!!!..It'll put a smile on your face and will make you laugh...and if you are feeling generous follow the link right under it and make a donation if you want to (anything, even $5 is appreciated)...no donation required to watch this video though. He made it all himself and said it was a lot of fun... I love the end shot...
Don't let the title fool you, it's a tongue in cheek look at fitting in practicing while dealing with the day to day activities we all have.
Till next time.....
