Knitting on the Red Capet. Fabulous!
And…here we go!
1. I love to go to knitting meet ups because they’re so much fun.
2. It’s not the quantity of shoes in your collection that matters, it’s the quality!
3. The last thing I had to eat was bread and olive oil with Parmesan (clearly, my diet is going well).
4. Working from home is no longer essential. I’m not doing it anymore.
5. Please take a moment to pray for everyone living through the crisis in Japan. We still haven’t heard from our friend, Yusuki.
6. Your feet have brought you this far.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to working a fiesta cruise, tomorrow my plans include a delayed St Patty’s Day with my family and Sunday, I want to knit and blog all day!

It’s WIP Wednesday!
Here’s what I’m working on this week:
I cast this on last night. I was visiting my Mom and I didn’t want her to see the afghan I was knitting so I brought a new project to start at her house. These will be Toto the Extremely Useful and Cute Potholder by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne. These are a simple knit, very useful, and a cheerful edition to any kitchen. I am knitting them for a friend who sometimes reads this blog, so I can’t say much more at the moment. 🙂
Here’s the current status of the Aran Afghan:
For comparison, here’s what it looked like last week:
I was very happy to see that this afghan DID in fact get bigger. I realized this morning that I have to buy more yarn. I am close to halfway through the yarn I bought, but it will not be long enough if I don’t buy more. It looks like this afghan and I have a lot more work to do.
I still love it, I’m not bored with it or anything. I try to keep my eyes on the prize. I saw my Mom snuggling under the blanket I knit Dad for Christmas last night and I kept relishing in the fact that soon she will have a blanket of her own to keep her warm. 🙂
