We've been back home from our family reunion in CA almost a week and have just about caught up on everything that didn't get done while we were gone. We had a wonderful time, and since I wasn't allowed in the kitchen, several knitting projects were finished!!!
I'm not telling when I started these, but the pattern is Patina and the yarn is Lorna's Laces in the color Shorewood (my high school but our color was red and gray). I love the pattern so much I've already started another pair. Maybe I'll finish sooner, but don't hold your breath!
I also finished a prayer shawl for our niece, figuring she could use it as a cover-up while nursing Ben, even though it's too hot to wear it now. I also wanted her to know she was in my thoughts the whole time I was knitting it. Hopefully knowing how much people care will help ease her pain in losing little Alex.
This is one of my favorite photos from our time away. Sophia and I had some stitching time together, using another Hoop-a-Loops kit. She didn't finish it, but we'll work on it again the next time we're together. She's getting quite good with the needle and has the straight stitch mastered! If you know a child who wants to learn to embroider, check out these kits. They are great.
