I've been busy working on Lars' Christmas Afghan (Exquisite by Carole Prior - in Big Book of Quick Knit Afghans) since Thanksgiving and now it is finished! It is a great feeling of accomplishment, I have never knitted anything this large before. I highly recommend big needles and double yarn for a boost of your self confidence.
I also completed a quick and bulky cowl in some leftover Patons Divine yarn I had around the house and I managed to squeeze in a few squares on my Sock Yarn Blankie (Shelly Kang sock yarn blanket) .
What have I done other than knit? Well, not much other than take care of a sick child and a sick husband. Today Phil is home from work with bronchitis and Conrad has been home sick (one day of vomiting, fever and a cough the other days) from school this whole week. We did manage to attend Unplugged, the LGHS talent show. Kajsa was one of the master of ceremonies and she also performed one number herself - Bridge over Troubled Water, by Simon and Garfunkel. She sang it beautifully!
