It was a cold Saturday today – a good day to stay home and work on projects. While listening to my favorite NPR Saturday morning programs, I finished this simple knitted scarf.
Although it does not show up in the picture, there is a nice forest green in the yarn that will match my green ultra-suede jacket. I think I will wear it tomorrow to church.
Also on my agenda for the day was to continue cutting sashing strips for my cousin’s quilt. Since cutting can get tedious, I began some sewing of the strips and rows.
It’s beginning to look pretty good up on the design wall. In order to be sure the width would be about right, I laid the sewn rows on my guest bed. With a border added, I think this will be just right.
I also worked on another knitting project that has been in my knitting bag for years and years and years. There was a dropped stitch that I needed to fix, and while holding my breath, I carefully grabbed the dropped stitch with a crochet hook and worked it up the ladder of knitting to the current row. It is the first time I have ever managed to fix a major mistake like that. My wonderful Aunt Betty (the knitting Queen) is looking down from heaven and applauding.
Now it is time to go to the kitchen and make a batch of beer bread muffins. Yum.
I’m very grateful for this cold Saturday at home.
