In progress…

I finally finished the brown beanie. Well, ok, I am going to finish it right now and then I will finish this blog post. Be right back. So I have it finished, and I can post it.

That last version was before I had it off the needle as you can see it still attached. I love the fact that I finally remembered to use the wig stand. My grandmother gave me two of her wigs many years ago to use when I was a school play director. The wigs ended up in the dressing up suitcase with a few old dresses that my daughters played with for years. By the way that is a great function for old suitcases and old clothing. It is really helpful when students have dress up days in high school.

I have a few other items to share including the scarf that is about two feet long now. I will be adding to that for a time. I also just started on a blue beanie. I am in middle of a week of subbing for a science teacher, and in looking at what she has planned there are a few times when having a knitting project will be a great help. Today I was proctoring a test, which means watching students to make sure they are doing their own work. A knitting project that is a simple no count pattern is good to keep me busy, but give me plenty of time to watch without the students thinking that I am staring. As the actual teacher, I usually had papers to correct to get the same effect, but… Anyway check below.

The scarf is two feet long so far.

One thing that I haven’t had time to share is this cat picture. A few days ago, I was outside taking pictures and when I looked at our roof, I had to do a double take, but when you see these two pictures side by side, you sort of get what I was thinking. Hope you all stay warm!!

      I probably cheated and found Christine when I was just starting and I checked out others who liked the same blogs that I did. I so enjoy reading blogs from areas away from my own cold flat plains of the Dakotas.

    Haha! I can see exactly why you thought there was a cat on your roof staring in! Lovely scarf, too.
