Over the Weekend

I have finished two Cowls, one lacy, and one more geometric and a mohair scarf.  Tonight I am starting a Shell sweater with Microspun.  I have had 3 skeins of Lion Brand Microspun for 7 years and I hope by next weekend to show you a finished item.  Stay tuned....

Heat Exhaustion

Toward the end of summer, heat exhaustion sets in...  as it seems summer is never going to leave.  By Labor day everyone goes back to school if they have not been in school for almost a month, and our weather just keeps getting hotter, and stickier. Here in Georgia, we have the longest summer and a long fall, the briefest of winters and a spring that starts in February and ends in April.  We have been living down here for 6 years, I can't seem to adjust.  It will end hopefully in a week and I hope to wear jeans in October.  Anyway, after my last post, I started training for our preschool which was a flurry of activity and then school started and the flurry continues, but it has been so much fun.  I have made 2 picnics of crochet food for my preschool, which took a while.  Then I couldn't wait to get back to my thread, and I made a bunch of ponytails... 

 then Orla wanted a backpack lunch box....

  

then someone asked me about slippers, so I made Orla a pair of slipper and will be making more.

Then I was on the Lion brand website found the new crochet along, Pearl's Cardigan,  which crocheted up quite fast


   

and was an easy pattern,  I used some Lion brand Woolease Sportweight I had, I started it last Friday night and by Tues.  I wove in my ends and I was done.  Looking forward to cooler days and more blogging.  Enjoy!
