The things we do

It never ceases to amaze me at what I will agree to when one of my children is involved.  My middle child, ever the girly girl and on the go, wanted a blanket for her dolls.  I had been gifted some acrylic yarn, and thought this would be a perfect use for it.  I have a pink, yellow and eggshell color that is from the 1970's.  I plan on making the blanket pink (because what other color is there?) with white daisies.  A pillow has been requested as well, and another blanket for the guest dolls.  Yes, this doll has a guest bed in her house and her friends sleep over all the time.  Five year olds have great imaginations.  I hope to finish this and my sock while hubby has surgery and doctor appointments in the next couple of days.  He is going for the first cataract surgery tomorrow, and the second will be in a couple of weeks.  Positive thoughts and prayers are appreciated.

Dog Days of Summer

August is called the "dog days" of Summer.  It is usually hot, and with nothing to celebrate, the heat makes the days drag.  I am trying to take full advantage of it, by trying to complete something.  I have a sock and a half, and hope to finish it within a day or so.  The sooner I am done with it, the sooner I can move on to another project. 

The front of my sweater is done, but I need to get started on the back.  Then I have the mittens for Christmas, at least 2 pairs of socks for Christmas, and the birthday sweaters to do.  Think I can get it all done?  Yeah, I don't think so either, at least not this year.
