Heartwarmer is off the needles, blocked and has its buttons! I had to start a new ball of yarn for the last two rows but will have plenty left to make a matching hat and then some. Actually, this pattern would also work (without the buttons) for a shawlette for grownups! (like me or you?)
On my needles is another Prayer Shawl for a woman in our breast cancer support group who's having a really tough time right now. She needs lots of prayers, too.
Mostly I've been working on Lady Kina for my second Camp Loopy project and kind of kicking myself for committing to that. Oh well, live and learn.
In case you didn't see this on my blog, last Friday morning I found something quite amazing on our front porch, a recently expired, perfectly preserved dragonfly. Many times we've watched them flitting about our garden, but never had we seen one close enough to admire its beauty in such detail.
Aren't those wings wonderful? It was also a great reminder to take time to look around to not miss the splendor of each and every moment. We are so glad that we took a photo when we did because a couple of days later the wings popped up vertically, making it much harder to see the detail. Those wings made me realize how stylized dragonflies are on most craft projects, but it would be difficult, or at least very time consuming, to capture all the details, wouldn't it? Have a great week!
