It's HOT!

Pardon the post from yesterday...I received several updates from Microsoft for Windows, and since one of those updates, several months ago, played havoc with my ability to publish my blog entries. I just wanted to make sure it didn't happen again....It didn't....YAY!

Here is my progress so far on Quaker Diamonds. I'm loving this piece. The biggest drawback on it is being able to count correctly to place all the motifs sort of where they belong. Mostly I can, but now and again they just might be off a thread. It still seems to be working tho.

I've also started another scarf for the Seaman's Church Institute. Some members (obviously including me) of my EGA chapter are knitting these for the Institute to distribute to sailors and seamen in port in NYC on Christmas day. The pattern is on their website. There are 32 pattern repeats plus six rows of garter stitch at each end. Once I've established the pattern I can knit the scarf anywhere...on busses, subways, planes, etc. so it's a SUPER traveling project

I'm also getting several of my pieces framed and ready to enter in the Vanderburgh (IN) County Fair. I'll let you know how I do.

It's very hot here in my part of HOOSIERVILLE so it's not hard to stay in doors in the AC and stitch/knit away. Stay cool where you are...or warm if you are on the other side of the equator.

Love ya............Grandma

Good luck at the county fair. Your sampler is beautiful and I would love the scarf for myself. It is really great that you are knitting for charity!
