yah. it’s been a knitting kind of week. I stil have lots of quilting to do, but my mind is settling on knitting lately. So, I cranked out a couple of berets…..
two berets and a bird hat.
then, I decided to dig through my yarn collection and organize it and found an old blanket I had started….linen/cotton on little tiny sticks…. about 3 and a half feet wide…..I am about a foot into it. so like only 5 more feet to go!!!! I started it on a long string of dpns which is a very uncomfortable way to knit a big blanket… luckily my mom picks up knitting needles at garage sales and sends them to me so I had the size I need in a long circular set…. I am going to work on that blanket now until I get into quilting again…
in other news…. the 6th grade did some ikebana……
and for those of you longing for summer………
THE MEAD MOON
I got a drink of the precious mead,
poured from Odrerir.
Then I began to quicken and be wise,
and to grow and to prosper….
