Sunny Days

Spring Mystery Shawl

Anniversary Mystery Shawl
I finished knitting my Spring Mystery Shawl!  It still needs to be blocked, hopefully I can get to that this afternoon.

I started the Anniversary Mystery Shawl.  It is a half hexagon shape.  I am just a few rows shy of having the first clue finished.  I love this pattern so far!  I am using beads.  They are very close to the color of the yarn, but I think it will still add a bit of sparkle.  

I knit a baby hat and forgot to take a photo.  It turned out very cute!  

This week the top of the reading pile is "Delicious Suspicious" by Riley Adams.  The first in a series of Murder Mysteries that is set in Memphis with a BBQ theme.  I am only 4 chapters in, but so far it seems like it will be a fun read.

This is my WIP Weds, KCCO, and Yarn Along post for the week.

Snowy Days

We have had a very heavy snowstorm the last couple of days.  My daffodils were just starting to open and now are buried under a heavy wet blanket of snow.  Hopefully the storm will clear out and the snow will melt away.

I am caught up on my Spring Mystery Shawl!  The fifth clue came out on Saturday and I am about halfway through knitting it.  I am using some bright orange beads and they really sparkle!  I hope it will show better when it is blocked.  What I should have on the needles is a baby hat for a shower on Sunday.  Those knit up quickly, so I should be able to get it finished in time.

I am reading one of the coffeehouse mysteries by Cleo Coyle.  I enjoy the characters.  And it is a well written story.

This is my WIP Wed, KCCO and my Yarn Along post for this week.
