I had a post done on my phone this morning and it disappeared! Strange. But I'm home from the lake now and I'll try it again with the desktop computer. I finished the shawl that both Gracie and Teresa have made. In fact, Teresa has made two! It turned out beautifully, but a little small. As I was finishing up the ruffled border, it occured to me that I thought I had heard Teresa mention that she had added extra rows. That explains it! Next time I'll add rows like she did. Meanwhile this one will be gifted to someone much smaller than me. :-) No problem. I had figured I would be giving it away anyway.
I do like the pattern very much and once I figured out the writers style of writing a pattern, I sailed right through it. I'm not as crazy about the yarn I chose. While very soft, it wasn't very pretty. Chloe had to get her tail into the photo too!
I'm also working on a CAL doily from Stitchy McFloss. It's a lot of fun and is going well. I just have to remember to check at the end of every row to make sure I haven't gotten lazy and made a mistake. This morning I picked it up and noticed an error 4 rounds back. Riiiiiip! So now I'm back to where I was before I went to church Sunday! I don't mind, it's very relaxing to me. I love to make doilies and haven't made many for several years. It's a fun CAL and you can find her blog on my sidebar. I haven't figured out how to embed bloggers addresses in the body of the post. I'm sorry.
I also have one completed baby hat for the hospital and one almost done. They are so easy and I always carry it around in my purse for something to knit on while in line waiting or whenever I have a few minutes to spare.
We went to the lake last Friday night and hubby stayed on Friday & Saturday. He had meetings last night and so Chloe and I were alone. It was 22F during the night! Brrrr. We figured I better stay there with the heat on to make sure nothing froze. That's supposed to be the last of the really cold temperatures, at least for the rest of this week! Heres my baby helping me to take pictures.
She wasn't happy that I brought her home this morning. She would have loved to stay at the trailer. I think she loves it even more than I do!
Here are a few more photos of the preparation for opening weekend this Saturday.
They have the row boats out and ready to launch and one of the childrens swingsets is partially uncovered and ready for little people. I just like the big granite boulder with the little trees. There are granite boulders everyone around the park, hence the name. Granite Point Resort.
Thank you for the well wishes for my Drs. visit last week. He did an EKG and chest xrays and found nothing abnormal. Which is good I know, but the reason I came home this morning instead of staying until Wednesday like we had planned is that I'm still not feeling great. Vague tightness in the chest, upper back and arm. Hubby told me to come home and not be so far away from the Dr. in case something is really wrong. So sad. I love the lake and I had a nice dinner all planned for him there. Now, since we'll be home tonight, he has to mow the lawn. He should have let me stay at the lake!
Anyway, have a lovely, lovely day today and remember. "This is the day that the Lord has made, Let us rejoice and be glad in it!"
I'm going to enjoy the clear blue skies here at my house, just as much as I would at the lake. And now, I'm going to go crochet.
