Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Project completed ...Finally


I am sure I am not the first, last or only person to start a project and never get back to it in a timely manner... I am proud to say Today I finished a big soft white scarf that I started knitting over 4 years ago... I would bring it out and have full intentions of knitting a few more rows.. something always took priority over it...plus  I have the handicap of not ever taken a knitting lesson so perhaps thats one reason I would put it away for another day...Thanks to my sister Judy who knits beautifully and quickly I picked up a few tips but
she lives in Arizona  so thats another reason it was put on the back burner. I inserted a few spaced rows of colored feathery textured yarn to give it some color. She suggested I use circular needles  ( I thought all needles were circular) instead of 2 straight needles since I often dropped rows as well as stitches.. So It is completed now and we are expecting Snow tonight. I finished it in just the right time for Christmas. A pressie for me.. I was thinking about knitting stockings but.... changed my mind, maybe I'll try mittens...or not..It is a great feeling to finish a project and have it wearable...
You can bet I will be wearing it and smiling from ear to ear when asked "Did you really knit that?

Hey..how about just putting the knitting needles, recipe box, and decorating aside and just sit and RELAX for a few days!

You and Clay (and critters) have a GREAT Christmas.
