Several of my knitting projects have taken the back seat to a request from our daughter's mother-in-law for 3 pairs of booties for a friend by May. I was actually able to shop the stash for the requested colors but did change my mind about one of the yarns halfway through one pair.
I'm working my way down #6 and then all that's left is to sew them up. Part way through these, I realized I should be making a pair of booties for my niece who's expecting in September. Thankfully, that's a ways off.
These two projects are waiting in the wings for me to get back to them. The first is the infamous Advent Scarf which I started in 2010. I stopped midway on Day 15 which may have been around the time I started having gall bladder issues. Anyhow, I picked it up again finally and am now on day 18 with 6 to go. I was stuck for a bit on one of the instructions for day 18 which read "knit the rightway und twist". It finally dawned on me that the designer must have meant "knit front and back" (kfb). If not, it worked, and I'm leaving it the way it is! I want to finish the sock (#2) before the end of the month, so it looks like the scarf is number 3 on my list, doesn't it? (I do have a couple of other projects waiting, too, but I'm sure you aren't surprised by that.)
Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this garden photo. These are some interesting daffodils that grow 3 to a stem; they're guarding the lone tulip from squirrels and rabbits. About 5 tulip blossoms were on the ground this morning on the other side of the driveway where the daffodils are almost done. Don't know what got them, but I can guess. Have a good weekend! Oh, and check out Patchwork Times to see what others are knitting!
