I started this infinity scarf for my daughter before Christmas but I didn't like the way the yarn was chunking. Ideally the yarn was supposed to stripe and it doesn't. The funky mustard color did not really appeal to me for her either.
I bought a different yarn for her scarf which you can see here.
My hand is slowly getting better. I received a shot in it Monday, so now it is sore, but the doctor said I could return to my crafts within reason. I decided to pick this scarf up again just to see how it would feel. Wouldn't you know I was wearing a top that was the darker blue/teal color. As I was working, I realized I had tops in two of the other colors also, including the mustard color. I guess I subconsciously bought this yarn for myself. Who knew?
The crocheting is slow going as I am wary of doing too much but at least I now have something to work on at night as I just can't see well enough to cross-stitch then.
I finished reading Knit Two (Friday Night Knitting Club) by Kate Jacobs this week. It was the perfect airplane book. I enjoyed reconnecting with the characters from the first book now five years later. The characters grow in age, experience and self-knowledge. It was quite an upbeat book that included travel when I was traveling. Loved it.
Having a Kindle is definitely the way to go when traveling. Several books in one lightweight item. Thank you BIL.
I am now going to go back to reading The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. I didn't want to carry the quite hefty paperback on vacation. For some reason, although I am enjoying this book, I am finding it slow going.
