This month was a crazy one with trying to get ready for the holidays while not feeling up to par and DH having medical issues/tests and appointments.
I realized early on that I needed some handwork to keep myself occupied while sitting in the car waiting for DH to finish with appointments and tests.
I looked at patterns and couldn’t find anything that just made my heart skip a beat. Then I was looking for a photo and came across this one:
This was a shawl I had made last spring. While my daughter was here in the summer she decided she needed to “borrow” it and it went home with her.
Since I haven’t been feeling up to par I decided I had to make a new one for myself and I just knew I had enough of this wool to make one. I decided I just wanted a simple, cuddly, warm shawl so decided not to do a complicated knit.
It did take a week since I seem to nap if I’m sitting in my rocker for any time, but with waiting for DH and a few minutes here and there, I managed a finish.
I haven’t been able to do much sewing and the skies have been grey, gloomy with mostly rain, but a few snowfalls as well. I’m sure that didn’t help the energy levels as well as knowing it would just be DH and myself on Christmas Day.
I’m pleased as punch to have been sidetracked with this little project. In fact, I’ve started another shawl which will likely wind up in the to be gifted bin but will help me feel as if I’m keeping busy when sitting or waiting.
I’m so glad you stopped by to read my post. ❄️ Carol
