Weekly catch-up – 2-4-18


February – that came quickly.  But that means one more month of winter behind us.  I love that if it is a sunny day now (not gloomy and overcast) the sunrise and sunset are that much more earlier/later and I get to see a bit of daylight as I’m headed to work and when I get off the bus at night rather that darkness both ways.

Warning – spoiler alert if you are doing the ESK Yarnthon and don’t want to see the 10K yarn before you earn it but heck – since I share photos of all my knitting  you’re just taking your chances since this is the last spoiler alert warning I’ll be giving.

But first for those quilters out there – if you live in the US and would like to receive a free issue of  Quiltmaker Magazine  which just happens to have my quilt design on the cover, just leave a comment on this blog post AND be sure to check back next weekend when I’ll announce the winner, who will need to PM me their mailing info.

Updated:  You comment may not show up immediately in the comments section after your post it.  If you haven’t posted comments, or few, or if WordPress is just being difficult – your comment is held in pending until I review and approve it.  So just leave one comment – once I approve it, it will show up with all the others.  For some reason it seems to be sending comments to pending for people I have previously approved.


I have been busy knitting, knitting, knitting – staying off my mangled toes.  Hopefully I can get my boots on tomorrow since it looks like this outside my door this morning.  Snowed yesterday but I like the snowy view better than the brown dead grass view that was there yesterday.


And the fingerless mitts I’m making out of the 10 K yarn – it’s knitting up pretty.


This picture is before it’s seamed.  The second one only has another inch or so left for me to know.

Now to go take photos of the rest of the knit projects I’ve finished /been working on this week.
