plugging along

It’s been a crazy week so far. We cleared the Valpo house out and put everything in storage.  One more step to being rid of it.

Jessica continues to struggle with her behavior at school, but we had a very long meeting yesterday. the law was laid down and the details were explained to Jess.  She seems to understand, so here’s hoping that today is a the first of many good days to come.

Our pastor’s wife has been ill, and seems to be heading into surgery here soon, so I made her this.

Pattern:  Shetland triangle shawl by Evelyn A. Clark.
Yarn: Silky wool, 1.5 skeins
Notes: knit to pattern.  although the cat proved a chaalenge when it came to blocking this sucker. I hope she likes it.

While in Valpo this last weekend. I attended a baptism, and gifted the bonnet I made from the vintage pattern I mentioned in the previous post.

Pattern: Baby’s bonnet by Nancy Cary and Mildred Mowll
Yarn:  Colinette jitterbug
Notes: My gauge was different and I had to adjust the pattern accordingly.  I added 1.5" grossgrain  ribbon ties. I can’t wait to see Mara in it.

I’ve started many things but I need to take some pictures for you all.

    Beautiful Shetland Triangle. It should bring comfort to the pastor’s wife. I hope she’s doing well.
