Joining today with Small Things for Yarn Along.
I have been away for a while, due to illness and internet problems, but am finally back! I am looking forward to looking at all the Yarn Along posts for this week - I have been missing my blog browsing!
I don't think I have ever had an illness that actually made me feel so tired that I couldn't even read or knit. I just didn't have the energy to do anything.
So there has not been a huge amount of progress on the Girl On Fire shawl, although I am onto the final colour.
I am reading Home Front by Kristin Hannah. I am about half way through and am really enjoying it, so much so that I have looked up some more of her books to put on hold at the library. It is an easy, but engrossing read. It is about a wife and mother who is also a Black Hawk helicopter pilot and is deployed to Iraq.
And guess what?! Remember my daffodil tea cosy? It was entered in the exhibition and you could choose to offer it for sale. So I thought, why not? I can always make another one. And it sold! For $40! I was so excited - such a thrill that someone thought my knitting was worth actually buying!
So that gives me an excuse to make another tea cosy.
