A Cold Saturday

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.
