Some of you have you asked to see a photo of Dennis wearing his new sweater so here you go! He chose the pattern and the yarn. It is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, 100% wool.
He wore it to work yesterday and said it kept him nice and warm. Isn’t he handsome? We will be married 42 years this year and I think he’s still the most handsome man I’ve ever laid my eyes on. He has a heart of gold too and would do anything for anybody who needed help.
Next up are two hats to be donated to the nursing homes hat project. The one on the left is crocheted and the one on the right is knit.
I only put a row or two on the “Baby Blocks” baby blanket this week because I was busy with mittens and finishing Dennis’s sweater.
A bit of a closer look at the stitch definition and the border.
I’m currently working on one more hat and then I will set everything aside to work on a blanket for my blog friend. She has it about halfway done but it is unable to crochet because of a shoulder injury. She was making it as a gift, and I told her I would finish it for her. I’ll take a picture of it next time.
Tara arrived safely back in London a couple of days ago and went directly into quarantine for two weeks in her apartment. Alex followed yesterday and he is now in quarantine in London along with her. I guess if they have to be in quarantine at least they’re together. Neither are showing any signs of illness at this time. Thank goodness.
I just heard on the news that we had two more deaths in Washington state today, bringing it to eight deaths here in the past few days from the coronavirus. I don’t mind telling you that this whole thing is making me more than a little bit nervous. In my last post I told you that my friend Nita had an ablation on her heart on Thursday. She ended up being admitted back into the hospital Saturday morning with pneumonia as a complication from the ablation. She is back home now, but I drove Larry to his appointment with the neurologist today because she obviously doesn’t feel up to going anywhere. He sometimes has problems remembering/hearing things, so I went with him to be a second set of ears. My goodness me, they had hand sanitizer and signs to wash your hands everywhere. And I mean everywhere. Bottles of hand sanitizer were on every flat surface in that medical building. People are really afraid here. It’s quite a topic of conversation and there are school closures only 70 miles away. I would like to say that I think the threat will go away soon, but I don’t think it will.
On a happy note, we have temperatures in the high 50’sF today with white puffy clouds against a bright blue sky. It’s absolutely gorgeous. We definitely had March come in like a lamb this year. I’m wishing you all a lovely Tuesday and that you’re all safe and well.
Today I thought I would share what was my moms favorite Bible verse with you all. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I heard her quote this to me.
“I lift up my eyes to the mountains, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.” Psalms 121:1, 2
