Crazy Knitting

2 years ago I started knitting the Modern Quilt Wrap in beach glass colors.   I was anxious to get it knit and finished and take it to the beach in Mexico.  I knit the first 6 rows in 7 days and then I fizzled out and the project went into time out for 2 years!

I decided that it's finally time to get it finished and I've been working on it in the evenings for the past week or so.  I've now finished 12 rows and think it might be a bit small.  Granted it's not blocked yet - but I still have a lot of the mohair and silk yarn left and what in the world would I do with the tiny bits left over?

So - it's going on hold for a few weeks and then I'll focus on it again.  Hopefully I'll get JB down to a beautiful local beach to take some finished photos before the summer ends. 

It's Thursday and in my world that means being Thankful, remembering all the little things that make a difference daily.  Today I'm thankful for:  *healthy dogs*wonderful vets*a fabulous local emergency vet*fantastic friends of the real and velveteen variety*a loving husband*vacations*knitting*color*fresh peaches*

Won't you share your thanksfuls today?

Kari beautifully told Lucy's story.

The staff at my vet's office graciously made Lucy's stepping stone for me.  It's now snuggled up with Dudley's stepping stone on the front porch.  I adore it.
Read how Lucy picked us.  I miss you sweet girl.
