Sunday Post #8

Last week I was in caretaker mode. As usual I had my days with granddaughter Grace.  Then, on Friday, my youngest daughter had her wisdom teeth extracted. She’s making a great recovery and is looking forward to when she can stop icing her jaw and eat regular food again.

I joined the Bess Crawford Read-Along at Book Club Girl. Click on the link to read all about it. I’m currently reading A Duty To The Dead – the first book in the series.

I finished the cowl I’ve been knitting for eons (ok, several weeks). I don’t have a photo of mine but it looks exactly like the one pictured below. It can be worn a few different ways.

Note:  that’s not me – I’m neither blonde nor as young as the model 🙂

Pattern:  GAP-tastic Cowl by Jen Geigley.

  

Now I want to start a new project. I’d like to try an easy sweater for my granddaughter.  I’ve never knit one before so emphasis is on easy. Any suggestions?

  1. a sweater? Yow, it’s been so many years since I’ve knit a sweater I couldn’t even remember where to start. I took knitting at an adult ed group umpty years ago and so had help. I stick to afghans and scarves now. Do you have a group of knitters at your library?

    • I think there’s a beginners class at the library but it’s for kids. I have a good yarn shop nearby so I’ll probably stop there soon for some help.

  2. I love the cowl, and think it looks wonderful! I am always amazed when someone creates something so beautiful, and wish that I could learn to knit as well. I know how to crochet, but it’s been a long, long time!

  3. That is a pretty cowl. I’m all thumbs when it comes to knitting; never did learn to do it. I let other people make me scarves!

    Ouch on the wisdom teeth. Hope your daughter is back to normal soon.

  4. I’m glad your daughter is doing well. Yikes, I was supposed to mention I was joining in the read-a-long and forgot. Oh well, as for knitting a sweater I’ve always wanted to but never braved it yet. If you find an easy pattern, let me know. I’m still working on my afghan. I’ll try to remember to post a picture next week. Have a great week Mary!

    • Thanks, Dar. I’m glad you’re joining in the read-along. I’ll let you know if I find an easy pattern 🙂 Yes, please post a pic of your afghan!

  5. I could use a cowl like that when walking the dog! It would keep my neck warm and I could use it to shield my face from the wind!

    And I’ve heard wisdom teeth extractions are pretty awful! Hope your daughter feels better soon.

  6. Love the cowl!
    Jenny from Jenny Loves to Read sent Gage the cutest sweater that she knit a few months after he was born. She said it was her first one and even though Gage can’t wear it anymore it still hangs in our closet 🙂

    • Stacy, thanks! I’ll ask her about the sweater.

      Just a suggestion, in case you didn’t already do it, find a photo of Gage wearing the sweater and put it with the sweater when you pack it away. Someday, when he has a child of his own, it will be a wonderful keepsake.

  7. Oooh, so pretty! What a great idea! I’ve knit many scarves over the last few years but I’ve never tried a sweater. My mom has made so many beautiful ones over the years. I can’t wait to see how yours turns out. 🙂

    I hope your daughter is feeling better. My youngest son needs to get his out by summer and he’s not looking forward to it. He has 3 wisdom teeth and they are all sideways. They don’t bother him yet but the dentist said they will. Ugh. And guys don’t make the best patients when they don’t feel well.
