I finally made my choice and started this shawl today. I decided on something simple and quick, but elegant looking. It’s called High Effect Feather & Fan Shawl. This is for an acquaintance at Church who lost her oldest daughter in a car accident about 6 weeks ago. I hope it will help her to know that others feel her pain and care. I tried to lighten this picture up but it’s a navy color and just very dark. It will show up better (I hope) when I get more knit and have a larger project to take a picture of. I wanted a lighter color but this was the only color I had enough of in this alpaca yarn, which has been discontinued, and I wanted it to be soft and warm.
The Cowboys played the Texans tonight, and did not do well at all. They were very sloppy on the field. Only consolation is that it is still pre-season games. I hope they look much better on the field when the regular season starts.
I’m still knitting on the scarf, but there is no hurry and it’s something I enjoy working on during my lunch hr at work. I am enjoying my new job. It’s very busy and fast paced, but has all the things I enjoy doing. I’m looking forward to being permanently hired and having that financial security that temp jobs just can’t give.
The weather here has been really nice this week. Still a bit warm but much better than last week when I felt like I was going to melt. I much prefer the hot DRY weather out west to the hot HUMID weather in the mid-west. Winter has never been my favorite season, so you can understand that I also prefer the warmer winters out west too :P. I could so be a snow bird :P. But we just have to grow where we are planted.
