Good Evening Internet Friends!
I hope that everyone had an AMAZING New Year's Eve and Day and that this is going to be the BEST Year EVER!!
Last night kiddo and I attended the Broadmoor Lake Park Fireworks as we have now for a few years. It is always an amazing show. It was super cold out but thankfully I had my newest knitted toque on:
On Sunday evening I found an old copy of the Northward Toque I had knitted several years ago. In my stash (yarn) I also just happened to have this skein of Superwash Six - a bulky 100% Merino. I thought this was a perfect knitting combo because both the yarn designer and pattern designer are from Vancouver.
This toque is an easy and quick knit and I think I might need to put it into use a little more frequently.
Last night there was a bit of snow fall and wind so when I took doggie out for his walk this morning the world was our blank slate:
It was also an added bonus that the temperature was only about - 2 C (28 Fahrenheit).
It was very peaceful out and as such we were able to be about 10' from this dude and watch him closely:
The doggie even sat very still watching.
This afternoon I sorted through my scrap fabrics in preparation for the 52 Week Block Challenge. As you know I have done this challenge for the past five years. I am a bit behind on the others right now but hopefully with a bit of planning I can fix that up. I have now sorted through the scrap fabric on my desk that has accumulated since moving and cut it to the various sizes that I will need for these blocks. All scraps are now in plastic zip seal bags ready to be sewn into blocks.
A friend gave me a tote for Christmas that I have decided will be the perfect size to store the bags of scraps and the sets finished blocks:
Left Block is Flock of Geese 2017 - these blocks were a casualty of moving.
Middle Block is 2018 Red and White Snowball - just behind on this series.
Right Block is 2019 Jewel Box. "Sew" far I am not behind yet🤣.
Will relax for the evening now with a pair of socks that I am knitting that have a special mission and I should get those completed ASAP.
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
