It's been a wonderful week.
Cool mornings -- finally!
Hot afternoons, but very little humidity -- Yay!
Good walking weather.
My follow-up visit with the eye surgeon went well.
Getting used to the new lens.
My sight changes a little daily as the lens settles in.
Life is so much brighter -- literally!
Mail Call brought this lovely postcard from China.
I have a dear friend there on a Fulbright doing research to complete her
PhD in Art History.
This is Peking University where she is taking some classes.
It used to be part of the Emperor's Summer Palace.
School in a palace!
How about a little needle and hook news?!!
This is a close-up of a shawl I completed for a friend.
This is a free Red Heart Pattern called Romancing The Shawl. I did not use the yarn that was suggested. Instead, I used Red Heart Boutique Changes in the Granite color (6 yarns in one) and still achieved the wonderful texture. It was an easy pattern to follow and I may have to knit one for myself!
Finally finished two squares in the crochet Halloween afghan.
Except, I decided the afghan would be too large for me!
So, I decided to make four lapghans.
I've completed two Jack-O-Lantern squares and started another black cat.
I was happily putting rows together when I realized I had put them together
basakwards (as my Granny would say).
What to do?
I have plenty of black yarn, but not a lot of the grey.
Taking it apart is next to impossible. I'm afraid I'm a really good put them togetherer (!!!),
but would really make a mess taking it apart!
I decided to put things away.
Let my new eye rest.
Start again another day!
