Earth and Sky has grown quite a bit since the first picture (2 posts ago). It's just past the half way point, I think. The middle section is the darker variegated section. Given the yarn I have that works with this color combination, I may need to add a border when done, we'll have to see if I'm happy with the size when I get to that point. Currently it measures 35 ish inches by about 60 from memory.
Baby it's cold outside. Was only in the low 20's again today. So glad I can sit with the afghan on me as I knit to provide more warmth.
Was away from blogging a wee bit with catching up on stuff after a short vacation with some girls friends, then my daughter was in town for Thanksgiving. So, looking forward to making my way around my blog walking list to see what everyone's been up to.
I don't know if people are already in the throws of getting ready for Christmas and perhaps too busy for above, but I also think some folks like to clean out to make room for new and or just clean out before decorating. I spotted this a while back on Facebook and rather liked how they made de-cluttering a smaller job by breaking things down into manageable pieces for daily advances. Technically I've already done a few of these this week. I need to figure out how to mark it.
Since we've had rain, freezing rain, and some snow......this seemed appropriately funny to me. My husband told me today at lunch when he got in the car to come home, the light that indicates doors are open or ajar was on. This am, he couldn't get two car doors opened due to ice. Apparently he's pulling on them popped just enough that when the ice melted...they weren't totally closed. By the by, I hate winter.
What a cute craft this is. Made from buttons. Anyone keep a bag or can of buttons? I know my Mother who was quite a seamstress did. I can't say I ever really have, but wouldn't this be a cute use of them? A way to recycle sorta. Or if you're looking for a cute craft that maybe the kids can do.
Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. In my last post I said eat and enjoy and then exercise the day after. Well....did you? I managed to exercise for 2 days following ...but not sense. Guess I need to restart again. I did though get my membership at the gym updated the other day. Haven't been there yet mind you, but ....it's ready if I can get myself motivated.
