I have discovered that I can do cross stitch while wearing a wrist brace, so this is what I have been doing these last few days.

I finished Cashmere Camel, adorable advent animal #6

and February from Palko's calendar. I have decided to use the stars and snowflakes fabric for January.

Still no knitting but my wrist is starting to get better.

Haekeldecke 2015/Crochet Blanket 2015

Well, between a change in yarn choice and my wrist not being very cooperative I have not made a lot of progress but a few more squares were added nevertheless. I like the muted colors I used in the Doctor Who scarf a lot better and I think using the same color for the outside border of the squares keeps it all nicely together.

Ich habe meine Woll-Wahl geaendert, anstatt alle moeglichen Reste zu verwenden, habe ich mich fuer die Farben, die ich auch im Doctor Who Schal verwendet habe, entschieden. Ich mag die gedeckten Farben lieber als kunterbunt und die einheitliche Umrandung haelt alles schoen zusammen. Mein linkes Handgelenk ist beleidigt, daher habe ich nicht soviel geschafft wie geplant, aber ein paar Quadrate sind doch dazugekommen.

Here you can see all the other pretty blankets in Progress.

Snow Day!

As predicted it started to snow around 9 pm last night and this is what we woke up today.

Yarn Along

Another cold and sunny day and a winter storm in the forecast, yikes. There has not been a lot of "yarning" around here lately. I injured my left wrist somehow and it protests when I do too much, I am still working on my blue socks and the Ludlow shawl, but very slowly. So I thought today I show you my finished "Shaelyn Shawl" instead of my ongoing projects. I really enjoyed knitting this pattern. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in charcoal heather.

I am reading "Call the Midwife" by Jennifer Worth (on loan from the NC Digital Library).

Yarn Along

A cold and icy yarn along today. But at least it is sunny. We had some snow on Monday afternoon, quickly followed by freezing rain and now everything is covered with a layer of ice. It thaws a little in the sunshine and then freezes over again.

I plan on knitting at least one pair of socks every month this year and I am already one month behind. These are my January socks. My boy Jack is terrified of the noise the dpns are making and so I try to avoid knitting with them when he is around (I don't like scaring my cats) and since he hangs around me a lot I am not making much progress on my socks. I have already ordered some bamboo needles.

These are the squares for my 2015 Crochet Blanket project. I decided to use the colors I used in the Doctor Who scarf, using up the leftovers and then buying what is needed as I go along.

I am reading War Brides by Helen Bryan.
