His Name is PIP and I was able to use some of the yarn my MIL gave me. YAY

I have another one made but the cats have claimed him as their own.

Wow, that was lucky. I started the shrug for my company xmas party and I spent a few days working on it. I was worried that after all that work it would look like crap but hey, it didn't. Can't tell you how relieved I am and how nice and warm it is. Thank you Lindsay for helping me find the pattern.

I know I look a little cranky but I didn't see the picture until after I had changed and I wasn't changing back.

Fiddle in the bathtub, please don't freak

I don't know why she was in the tub, but she seemed quite happy.

So after weeks of deliberation, I decided to Frog it. The first scarf I ever made. Now I made it on size 9 needles, garter stitch and it was good practice, but it turned out a little heavy and a little too warm (yes, there is such thing). So I tore it out and plan to double strand it and use larger needles. I may even put a stand of white in (it’s one of those self striping blues, that means it has 3 different colors going through the yarn. I like it with white when I have made pompoms out of it but I don’t know if it will work in a scarf.

On the lighter side. My MIL (mother in law) gave me a large bag of brightly colored yarn. There are balls of light green, orange, blue and hot pink, hardly color’s I use ( I like Jewel tones)

I laid it all out on the bed last week trying to decide what to do with them. Feeling greatly disheartened and thinking I would have to just hold on to it forever I put it back in the closet.

The very next day I came into work and on the back of one of the nurses’ chairs there it was. A cardigan made up of what? Blue, orange, yellow, and 2 shades of green. Can you believe it? They look fabulous together. How very exciting. Now I probably won’t make a cardigan but I now feel empowered, maybe a scarf or a nice doggie jacket. Amazing how the universe works.

The cardigan.
