Two Scarves

I've been knitting a couple of scarves so I thought I'd let you see them! This one is from Filatura di Crosa. It's just one skein and it's sort of a netting. It's got silver on the outer edge but the yarn itself is black. This was so fast! I think it took 2 nights of watching television! Nice and quick!


This scarf is from Vogue Knitting, It uses bulky weight yarn and short rows. This color is a Civil War blue. The short rows make that nice ruffle along one edge. Once I got used to short rows, this one was fun. I had actually bought this yarn to make a sweater. However, the pattern I was using just wasn't what I wanted. I took out the whole sweater and made this instead.

I've had a couple of bad days. My dad found out he has shingles. My poor mom is taking care of him and it's just not easy! I've gone to help out but I'm not very good at it. My mother knows what to do for him. I had a migraine last night and into today. I basically sat around yesterday and hung out on the couch. I tried sleeping it off but it didn't help. I couldn't eat since I also felt sick. I thought I was better today but I got a headache again. Some days, you just can't make any plans. I'm hoping one more night of sleep will really get rid of it. I'm working the end of the week and the beginning of next week too. I hope I'm better by then. I have to be!

Going back to the couch. Hoping I'll be better in the morning!

  4. I totally empathize with your migraines; I am prone to them, too. Dark room, in bed, try to find a comfy spot and sleep--that was my prescription. That and saltines seemed to help the tummy troubles. Hope you're feeling better soon...:-((...And your Dad and the shingles; my Mom had them--they really are uncomfortable/downright painful actually. Hang in, Julierose

    1. Thanks, Julierose. I finally slept better last night and feel more myself today. My dad is about the same. I'm hoping his medications make the shingles a bit milder for him. We'll see!

  6. I hope you are all better now and that your dad is feeling better too. I finished knitting one of those netted scarves last night. They are fun and quick! I used Red Heart's version. My young nieces will like them. They are variegated colors. I've already started another one. Your black one looks great and looks very dressy!

My Slabs

I almost forgot to post the slab blocks I made for our block exchange.  This block is about 8 inches square. It was supposed to be most...
