More Finishes!

 I've done lots of knitting lately since most of our usual activities have been cancelled.  The saddest victim  was my volunteering at the UW hospital as the whole Arts in Healing program has been cancelled.  And I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye.😢

Before the recent lockdown, we did get to Cannon Beach, OR, one of our favorite getaways.

As you can see by the waves, it was very windy along with a King tide.

And there are still lots of bunnies that allow you to get close enough to almost pet.  The city has posted a "do not feed" law, but the bunnies seem to be surviving well on the grass!

These were for a tiny preemie who is doing OK, thankfully.

There have been quite a few babies to knit for lately.

I spent most of October on the Sharon Shawl and Cowl and have enjoyed wearing the cowl on our walks.  Have any of you tried these patterns?  I found them challenging! They were also a great way to reduce my stash a little bit.


Well, I think that's about all of my October finishes. Next time I'll share my November projects, but now I need to get back to work on the Christmas projects.  Will I ever learn to start earlier?

You were busy in October. I love all of your beautiful baby things and the scarf and cowl. I haven't made either one.
My sister is a volunteer baby rocker in the NICU at the UNMC in Omaha. She hasn't been able to volunteer since March because of COVID. They took the first people off of the Diamond Princess there so they shut down visitors way before most of the country.
I hope the vaccine gets okayed and we can all get it soon so our lives can get back to normal.

I don't think there is anything sweeter than that preemie hat. I'm glad to read that the little babe is doing fine.

Judy, before this crazy year ends I want to thank you for your posts. I know you haven't been writing a ton lately, but you are always knitting for charity. That alone is remarkable. We share a lot in our lives with complete strangers when we post. The honesty and hope we post , takes a lot of effort and thought. Thank you so much Judy for the posts. Happy new Year
