great on her. I made it plenty long so that she can be warm
while camping, or on cool days. It is multi colored -I used
worsted weight yarn and it has a drop sleeve.
I tried out l5 different stitches in the stripes and
it was fun trying to use different stitches for each color.
I have also made a few more hats as
a lot of people want one and have a pair
of worsted weight socks under way - finished the first one and am halfway
thru the second one. My friend lives
quite far north and I am doing about 3 or 4 pairs for her to wear in the winter.
I am also planning on doing a cotton
pullover for summer for myself.
I am really enjoying the break from my sewing machine - I have worked steadily on my art
quilts for l0 years without a break and so this is a really pleasant time for me as far as
my creative streak is concerned. I did some knitting and lots of crochet years ago and am
finding it interesting to try my own designs in different projects.
It is very cold here today - another winter storm arrived yesterday and there were some bad
accidents on the trans Canada Highway south of Calgary. We drove that road often when we
lived south of here and it is very treacherous as it is quite flat and the wind howls across the
highway and blizzard conditions make it very dangerous.
Pat and I are going to take it easy for the next week as the Christmas season and Hayley's birthday have been really busy. I am meeting a friend for lunch on Thursday but not much else planned.
Take care everyone! Shirley
