Friday- Finished-Frogged and February News

Yes I finished several things this week. I knitted up two round dishcloths, and made 8 headbands, finished and felted a pair of slippers. Here is a quick glimpse of these projects.
AND THE THING THAT WENT WRONG

This was a scarf I started over the summer to teach my physical therapist how to knit. Unfortunatley the yarn and I had a parting of ways... it did not knit evenly and was full of knots and broken pieces. I need to find a smaller project to use it with, I LOVE the color and the sparkles in it. It's just not made for a scarf.
And this is what I have now...

I had to drive my youngest son home this morning from dropping off his brothers car at the dealership... and he noticed that I have several inches now between my stomach and the steering wheel. There was a day when I could barely turn the wheel because it was jammed into my belly. I no longer have to tilt the steering wheel up and today I was thinking I actually need to move the seat up a little, I was stretching to reach the gas and brake pedals.

Adam and I have been hanging out all afternoon. I decided to take a break from the headbands and make another pair of felted slippers. I am going to try to do this pair all in one color. The folding may get complicated but I think I can figure it out. This will be a small child size pair, in PINK of course. Maybe pictures to follow this weekend.

Sunday is February 1st and my month long contest will begin. I hope you all can stick around and play. I love giving away the prizes. This time I am probably only going to have 1 grand prize, BUT I may have a couple surprises in store on a day not to be revealed ahead of time. You will have to be here to know and to WIN.

Have a wonderful night everyone. Sweet Dreams.

I didn't know about that pink yarn that isn't going to be a scarf. It's pretty.

That's a lot of headbands. I like the pink/purple one best. I still think you're crazy to try to knit so many items in one year. Hope that lovely purple yarn finds its new purpose soon.

Have I told you how much I love your headbands? Really.
You've had a very productive week. I'm happy for you.
Can't wait to see the new slippers and the contest. Yay!!

You had such a creative, productive week. Your slippers felted beautifully and the headbands are darling. There has got to be a "right" project for that beautiful scarf yarn. You'll be inspired & pick the one that works.

Congrats on the newly achieved inches of space! Just another milepost on your road to better health.

I'll get a post about your contest up tomorrow. So much fun to see who drops by.

Congrats on the steering wheel space. It's the little things that make it all worth it!
