Even though my wayward yarn arrived, I've not made a lot of progress with the Downton shawl. It takes forever to get across a row, and I was easily distracted by some very good news. My daughter told me that little Audrey had been approved to come home! (Many thanks to those of you who prayed for her.) I think she weighs over seven pounds now, which is amazing considering how very tiny she was when she was born.
So, I ordered some bright angora yarn and made some "welcome home" booties. Catherine picked them up this morning when she and Max paid us a visit, so Audrey will get them tomorrow.
This week I also finished two more of the Veranda Views designs. Just three more to go! That's good because our quilt group decided on a new project, one that will take some time. Now, back to work on another row of those 400+ stitches; it's slow going.
