Say it Saturday

Several things to say today.

So disappointed I did not get to attend our grandson's first senior football game last night.
Under the weather.
HH went and watched our grandson Ben make 2 touch downs and they won the game.

Working on a Heirloom blanket for our expected great grandson.

Purchased the Alpaca yarn but it came in a shape I had never worked with before.

 Had to look on You-Tube to find out how to get to this.

HH and I doing it all by hand.
He is watching TV while I struggle to get it onto something.
He has a determined look on his face, for sure.

Finally came up with this idea.

 Mixer and toilet paper holder.
Thanks to Home Health nurse experiences. 
Learning to work without the usual tools.

Initially ordered 4 skeins, since have had to order 4 more.
Blanket is going to be a little larger than I first intended.
That's what happens with make-up patterns.

Finally finished my scarf for the
Pink Project.
Trimmed it with eye-lash thread.

Now to mail it off to the center for distribution.

Well that is all I have to say.

Go here to share what others have to say.

I remember my mother needing her yarn re-wound, and then later I had to do some re-winding myself - husbands are great yarn holders!!!
