A reading yarn.....

Wednesday has rolled around again already. I had a productive week. Still trying to fight off this infection in my ribcage so lots of crocheting and reading going on here.

I was talking to my mother and she told me that my little namesake (who is not so little anymore as a mother of two sweet little girls and herself in her 30s...when did that happen?) wanted a cowl after she saw Saskia's. So I decided to make her a fancier one as a RAK gift. She lives in Arizona but wants to have it to wear at work where the A/C is on very high. I made her this lacy cowl from Lion Brand. She does not have it yet as it is still sitting here on my lady in the living room. I need to get it packed up and sent on its way...


Row 8 is almost done now on my circle in a square granny blanket. I just have to add the last row on the blocks. I laid it out to see if I want to make 9 rows total or crochet more to get 11 rows. I am not sure yet.


I spent most of the day yesterday switching back and forth between crochet hook and my book. My rainbow shawl is growing but I will save that for another time. I am going to finish reading Chocolate Wishes by Trisha Ashley (what a great read!) this morning and pulled out The Vineyard as my next read. I am starting to think about gardening while looking out at the snow so wanted a book to take me outside so to speak.

I have another finish to share but I am going to save that for my next post along with the pattern I made up for it. Hope you can stop back for that.....

I am linking to Ginny's YarnALong today.

  6. That cowl looks wonderful on your lady. It is really so pretty. Now, I am going to be a troublemaker and text Mandie to look at your blog so she can bug you to get it in the mail. You could make one just for your lady orrrrrrr, put on of yours on her. She would keep it safe till you want to wear it.
    The afghan is great and I have seen the two other projects you are working on right now. You even got me to crochet the same pattern only not in colors like yours is.
    Have fun stitching and crocheting.
    Love you, Mom

  9. The cowl is really beautiful Heidi! Your afghan is coming along nicely too! The books sound good too. I have read a few by Barbara Delinsky but not The Vineyard so I will have to check it out. Happy Stitching and I hope you are feeling better soon.

  11. The cowl is so pretty and I'm sure will be appreciated! When I was working I had to sit right under the AC vent and I froze day in and day out!
    The colors all work together so well for the granny square blanket and will be so lovely.
