I haven't been getting much done on my quilted shower curtain. Just too darn much to do during a day's time. In the evening, I've been plopping my tush down on the couch and watching some of the Olympics. I can't sit there with idle hands, though, so a couple of days ago I took some time to sort through the jumble of bags and baskets in a corner of my quilting room to find some handwork to do while watching TV.
My goodness! Who knew I had so many unfinished projects in that heap of yarn and patterns?
I decided to work on this scarf which I finished last night . . . hooray!
It's a cotton yarn so the scarf is meant to be worn more as an accessory (although not necessarily with this gray sweatshirt I have on today!) than something to keep my neck warm.
I like this pattern because even the back, or wrong side, is attractive. (In this picture the right side is on the right, flip side on the left.) It's called the "berry" pattern. I've used it to make a scarf once before, but this one I think I'll keep for myself. It is orange, and we all know orange is my color!
Happy Valentine's Day to y'all! We're celebrating by doing some snow removal. I just came in from shoveling off the front deck. The piles of snow surrounding the deck are so high now that it's hard to throw the snow over them without it tumbling back at me. We got around 6-8" yesterday but had winds that caused a bit of drifting. Papa Pea shoveled a drift away from the door before I could even get out to the deck. Hope all of you who are experiencing some winter weather in the south and east are warm and safe.
