Merry Christmas to all my friends & family.I am truly blessed!
~Not a very exciting day,but Mike & I got to spend it together.
~After breakfast,I made Pumpkin Sausage soup for Lori's get-together on Sunday.It's always best if it sits a few days.I also did 3 loads of laundry(Mike helped fold!),swept/mopped the floors & cleaned the front bath.
~We had pizza for lunch.All the carbs made me sleepy,so I napped off & on for almost an hour!
~I started a man's Prayer Shawl in RHS Medium Thyme,using a modified version of the Diamond lap blanket.From the last Prayer Shawl I made,I knew it needed to be no wider than 60 stitches using a J hook.The pattern turned out to use 59 stitches.I used a whole 7oz skein & it is exactly half the size it needs to be!I will add another 7oz skein to the starting chain.I'm so excited this pattern worked out.Most of the Prayer Shawls being made,both crocheted & knitted,tend to be on the feminine side.I am also tempted to offer to teach anyone at church to crochet so we can have more Prayer Shawls to give away!
