I love the new book. I have several projects picked out from it. Then I spotted them one day, while I was perusing seed beads. I found some root beer rainbow seed beads and knew instantly what I was going to use them for and which yarn. I have a chameleon orange lace weight that has been sitting around for a while. I decided to use the unusual colored beads with the orange yarn. It should turn out well.
This week has been a visit to the vet for shots for my oldest doggy. He is 13 years old. He is my sweetie pie. Then I noticed the hound dog who is 12 years old has skin issues so, he has to go in tomorrow. He will have to have surgery to remove several large lumps. Poor old guy.
I don't know who will get the orange shawl or scarf and then I had an epiphany...I can make a scarf for charity in lace. Some child will love it, I hope.
I have a huge line of knitting to do for people. I am taking a much needed break on socks. I have one person who will get them later in the year. I am thinking of re-working her pattern. I can do that.
