I recently finished knitting a turban for wrapping up my wet hair.
I also started a blanket for our priest. Being from southern India he always escapes each winter for a trip home, escaping the January cold. I thought he might appreciate a blanket.
The pattern I found is a free one, The Squared Shades Throw. It is fun. And easy, but not boring. The large piece shows one of the squares. It is started as a circle, in stockinette with occasional garter ridges. Then is squared off using garter stitches and short rows, each side separately. When all four are done, they are joined with a three needle bind off, and finished with I-cord all around. The smaller circle on the lower right is almost ready to begin the short rows on the first side. As long as it doesn't get too warm when it comes time to join them, should be finished fairly quickly.
Other news, most of our kittens found new homes, although we have some of the wilder ones that have come out of hiding. One little cutie, a calico, has eyebrows like the ones Groucho Marx used to put on with shoe polish.
And next week, while hubby tends the homestead, I and a friend are trekking "Up North" for a little escape. Can hardly wait.
I hope just it is cooler.
