I did finish my Guernsey Wrap from Brooklyn Tweed.
I still have to block it, but I will get to that. Sometime. lol! I used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Soot.
I started a new project -- it's the Messalina Shawl by Kay Jones of the Bakery Bears Podcast. I love their podcast and I love knitting this shawl as well!
This is my progress so far. I'm using Clara Yarn Cormo 2.0 in Sky -- I'm enjoying knitting for the first time with Cormo wool.
If you enjoy knitting podcasts, do check out the Bakery Bears. :D
Something exciting happened this weekend. The father type and I bought a car! My old car was 16 years old, and I didn't trust it for much besides very local trips. So this is a wonderful happening for me! A rare treat!
Here are a couple of relics from when the kids were tiny that I found in my car. Proof of how old the car is -- and how often I thoroughly clean out my car. lol!
Here's my new car!
I love my new Honda CRV!
Love the color so so much! It's called something like Mountain Air. lol!
The father type and I took the car for a drive Sunday. And where else would I elect to go but a yarn store?
We went to White Barn Farm, and what a lovely store it is!
And it turns out there was a Hudson Valley Yarn Crawl going on. I would have loved to go on the yarn crawl, but I figured one yarn store was tempting enough!
Here's my stash from White Barn Farm -- all locally made yarns, and all lovely!
We also went into the "downtown" area of New Paltz, wandered into book stores and chocolate stores, and had burritos at a yummy place.
It was great to take a drive in the new car on a lovely, sunny (if chilly) day.
While the father type and I were enjoying the weekend, the girl child went to visit her brother in Boston. They kept me somewhat up to date on their ventures, but not entirely -- of course. lol! Here is one picture the girl child sent me, from Newbury Street. Can't remember the name of the store with the window display of sewing machines, but my girl knows I love that window! See my babies in the window?
I recently moved things around a tiny bit and put a bench in front of one of Mia's favorite windows. She seems to enjoy it.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week. I'm still rooting for spring!
