OMG! Spotted this the other day on Facebook and just had to share it with you all. It's been YEARS since I've gone camping...pup tent, sleeping bag etc. My card is fully punched on that with no desire to do it again; but this.....what can I say!
Finished my potato chip scarf yesterday. Love the colors and the way the yarn drapes, but not the way it looks on me...even if the picture weren't blurry and I knew how to take a decent selfie, which I don't. The color is more accurate in the first picture, not the one with me wearing it.
Believe this is going to be donated to Bridge and Beyond, think a teen might enjoy it.
Finished another afghan. This one is called Pippy Longstocking. It too will be donated through my charity, Bridge and Beyond. It was assembled from strips that were donated. Had to do a fair amount of over stitching...as the person who donated it did the dreaded cut the yarn right after the knot and left no tail. I shored the edges up as best as I could, but you can see in some places it's not super straight...due to the over stitching and extra stitches to fortify it. But...I put it in the wash with fingers crossed. Here it is being blocked....it made it fine through the wash, so I think all is well. I named it Pippy Longstocking because it's so mixed, wild, un-tamed...a mish mosh. When I designed it, looking through lots of different colored strips, thought it would be fun and funky.
LOL! Anyone relate? I've been doing a 5 minute plank routine, a 6 minute full body stretch, and a 7 minute work out daily here at home, so haven't actually made it to the gym....but what can I say. Actually I had tried out several different apps, but din't find one that fit my need as a senior. Did you know you can exercise with Alexa? If you have an Echo Dot, or other Alexa model check it out. In the menu area find skills. I really like it and am finding it motivating.
Continuing to work on this jewel toned scarf, it's grown a couple of inches, but is slow going with this very thin yarn. My needles were a 4 wooden knit pics, but they kept coming apart, so I switched to my turbo's which are a 5, doesn't seem much different to me size wise. But, it's easier to see without the green cord and dark needles. The silver needles is an improvement.
