A YARNY UPDATE

Ginny’s Patronus Cloak continues to get bigger and bigger, the pattern gives a final stitch count of 737, which translates to 15 feet of ruffle. 😳😳😳

STILL BLUE

I’m still deep into my blue glaze phaze; every time I think I’ve reached my limit, there are one or two more new pots that lend themselves beautifully to the blues.

GRANDBABY TALLY

Same at five grandgirls on the hoof and one grandboy still in utero.  This is what 39 weeks looks like

Best daughter in law EVER!

Stay tuned!  Her due date is TODAY!

ON THE HOOK

Ginny’s Patronus Cloak continues to grow……

This cloak may be my biggest crochet project ever, with this kitchen window valance running a really close second.

 

and, if you’ve kept up with me over the last few weeks, you remember our new four legged resident here at Casa  Coleman – Dixie

 Being the puppy she is, some of my fiber and several needles and hooks have taken it on the chin,  necessitating the purchase of replacements.  I got lucky this weekend when I went to buy replacement hooks and found this nice set of Boye ergonomics on sale at Wal-Mart.  I prefer wooden needles/hooks, but until Dixie gets over her appetite for wood, I’ll be sticking with something a little sturdier. 🙂
