It’s time to pull out my warm yarn and start making hats. We enrolled 3 more of my 6 kids in public school, leaving only 2 at home. The oldest 4 are having fun attending school and the youngest 2, love that they have mom to themselves. Now that I have 4 fewer kids to deal with I should be able to crank out some hats and scarves. School colors are a must, and I have a start, 4 skeins of the right shade of orange. I just need to get a lighter weight version with some black and orange yarn. The goal is to get them all set for games and races and all that comes with school. I am hoping I can crank out a couple shrugs for my daughter and niece for those school color days. Now, if I could just settle on a pattern I will start knitting.
So I decided to start a mitered dish towel for my mom. Not a good idea, while on painkillers. I think I took out the same rows 2 or 3 times….it’s still a little foggy so my count could be off. I think this is the slowest project I have knit in years…..focus Amy!! Thankfully I am nearly done and might even surprise my mom with it, as a gift for their final walk through on their new home. It was knit to celebrate her new choice in kitchen decor that I have to say, I love. It’s about time she picked blue, my favorite color. I do believe I still have nightmares about the 70’s orange kitchen of my childhood, fully equipped with orange Tupperware, orange-flowered wallpaper and I can’t recall but I am pretty sure the curtains were orange too. My favorite room in the house, the color of the one fruit I don’t particularly like. Now, after all these years, I’m now 15 years married, my mom has finally come to her senses and picked the best color ever. I am really looking forward to helping her decorate the kitchen….the rest of the house she is on her own, unless she wants a knit afghan.
