Evelyn Shawl Update

We were up at the Deer Creek Cabins this weekend, making sure our renters were alright and relaxing ourselves. Ntm enjoying the noon/after noon thunder showers cooling everything down for a bit. I brought the Evelyn Shawl I am working on and some embroidery – for the hotter parts. As it was, I was able to work on the Evelyn Shawl quite a bit, to the point I have 6 more rows and bind off. However, I started my last skein of Juniper Moon Farm chunky a few rows back . . . .so now I am playing yarn chicken.

Sitting on the back porch of the “3rd Cabin”. My favorite morning

hiding spot out of the sun.

Aaaand we have a storm rolling in. Oh darn.

Messenger Shawl – Finished!

For Mother’s Day this year I did something a little different and took my Mom to Yarn Scout for her gift. She picked the Messenger Kit by Stephanie Shiman, a Wonderland Yarns kit. Though it took a couple months, I finished it in time (barely) for my parent’s 4th of July visit.

In which my brother wanted to be in the picture, so there is

his hand.

She really likes it. 🙂

Nothing Finished Yet

And that is okay. Kind of. I am squirreling in my projects again. Most of the things I have been working on for myself I have put on hold for a bit, while I get some Yule and Christmas gifts done so I am not overwhelmed closer to the time of. No one likes to be finishing their gifts on the drive to their parents house . . . . which may have happened several times already. This year I will be prepared! Honest. (hahahahahahahaha)

I started another Graham hat this week – Yarn Bee Dazzling

in Sunburst/40. I just could resist the sparkles and colorway.

Fair warning – may be making A Lot of Graham hats for gifts.

I do not know exactly what it is, regardless, it was

a cool sight for our Saturday drive around.

The Promise of Daffodils

This weekend we spent at my husband’s family’s cabins – Deer Creek Cabins – continuing spring maintenance and post winter cleaning. On one of my jaunts around, I noticed the daffodils came back again. The glacier lilies have sprouts up every where as well. I predict that they will mostly bloom around Mother’s Day.

In further news, I finished the hat I was working on for my Dad – the #LOUDER – as he is a big Sea Hawks fan.  I know little about sportsball all the things, but I think he will like this.I messed up a little bit on the on the Beastquake bit, but if you weren’t comparing it to the graph, I don’t think you’d notice.
