Part two....

Here is a little picture of my Quaker Mystery Sampler thru page two:

It is coming along nicely, and I am working on page three. Page four has been released, so I hope to catch up before too long!

It is cold outside!!!! I feel sorry for the kids walking to the bus stop this morning. I was hoping to just stay inside and stitch or knit for two days, but... Mom needs to go to the doctor this morning about her wrist. (She fell and broke it on January 2, and I have been the 'driver' for her.)

Oh... and what am I knitting? I had a friend send me a pattern for a shawl like thing. It is on the Joann's web site. Knitted Shoulder Blanket
I am not knitting it in their suggested yarn --- big surprise there! I picked Lion Brand Homespun in Harvest. It is picking up a nice Autumnal variegation in the pattern. If the sun comes out today, I will try to get a picture of my progress. It says it is a weekend project. Well... I must have too much to do on the weekends, because I have been at this for about two weeks, and don't even have the first panel done! My sister tells me I am too tense a knitter.... She finished up the baby blanket for my daughters friend, and told me she could barely get the yarn to slide off the needle! And I thought it was just the yarn I picked out that was the problem! So... I have been trying to be more relaxed while knitting. I don't seem to have the same problem with the dishcloths.... maybe I just like the cotton yarn more. I did finish the January dishcloth. It was a football! I didn't start the mid-month one, but, might do that soon.

I signed up for an exchange on SBEBB. It is the Time for Tea. I have all kinds of ideas for this one.... Now to wait for my exchange partners name. I am trying to decide if I want to sign up for another one. I need to keep my exchanges manageable! LOL

Oh... and the Yahoo LHN group is having a SAL on the new chart "Brave Hearts". I have the chart, but, not the 'called for' fibers. I need to go up in the fiber stash to see if I have fibers that will work. I really am trying to keep to my stash diet!

And, some of my Stitchy Sisters are going to be stitching the new mystery from Papillon Creations "How Does Your Garden Grow?" I want to also, so, I guess I will be in the stash a little longer than planned! LOL

Thank you all so much for reading and your comments! They are much appreciated!! Stay warm!
