Well it was an off week for me, not in the sense of something bad happening, but when the hubs is out of town I take some time off. I stocked up the frig with chicken pot pies and frozen pizza and I use the time to kinda do whatever I want.
I did all the normal things this week, I had a visit with Muffinhead this week, no cute pictures thought, went to bible study but basically I was at one with my yarn and Kindle all week long during my down time.

Y’all I have to brag a bit. I opened up the mail on Monday and found this. The hubs is so thoughtful. As he was heading out of town for two weeks he dropped this in the mail at the airport so I would get his valentine card on time! I made sure to point out to my DD that when it comes time to shop for husbands she needs to pay special attention to what a good one looks like and make sure to get one just like her dad!

First no I did not make these. I am not even sure who did. One of the ladies in our Prayer Shawl Ministry knows a woman who make these sweaters. Each years she will make several sweaters and donate them to various ministry's to sell as fundraisers. She donated a dozen or more sweaters to us and they were all snapped up. The coordinator of our ministry who is a bit challenged as far as Facebook goes asked me to post some picture of the reaming sweaters to see if we could sell the reaming four we have left. Well I thought I would toss them up here as well. If you see one that you just have to have give me a shout out. The cost for each sweater is $35.00.
They are about a child's size 5 or 6…

I finished another pink triangle shawl this week. I did one last year and I made a few small mistakes. You can see the how the design down the middle of the shawl in the picture on the far right is uneven and if shifts to the left and then shifts back again. My marker kept slipping around and I kept dropping stitches. Well hearing that nanner boo boo knitting voice in the back of my head I had to try this pattern again. I gave it a second work through and was able to correct the mistake from my first attempt.
It is a super simple pattern now that I have it figured out. I think I may actually do one of these for myself just to throw over my shoulders while I am watching television.

I am trying to learn how to knit a cable. A friend gave me this yearn. It is a self striping yearn so the cable does not show up as well as it would if the yarn was a solid color. I was just practicing.

Well it has happen again. The yarn has taken over. One day I fully expect to be found beneath a pile of tangle yarn…help me I have tripped on a knotted ball of yarn and I can’t get up………
With the hubs out of town I can spread things out a bit. I walked into the living room on Saturday morning and there was a very large array of various projects surrounding the recliner.
Project’s one, two, four and six are actually in progress. Project three and five are in the queue to be started at some point in the future. I don't normally have more than two project going at a time but sometimes I just get a thought in my head or an idea of how to pare up two different yarn's and then I have to get started. Well it will get all sorted out and eventually finished.
Well if you are all not fast asleep with all this riveting knitting excitement please head over to Sara’s and link up with the rest of the P365’ers.
Next week I plan to go bungee jumping, learn to speak Mandarin and play the piano and visit the Great Wall of China and then maybe after all that…….hmmmmmmmmm
