  1. Denise beautiful dress. I have tried a thing or two that didnt work but at least we tried. I have yet to master those bird nests that Lyn makes. I can work with two strands but when I add that third one I invariably miss getting all three pulled through. Darski you are the reason I am here. One of your doll clothes patterns led me here. Chris another cute baby doll outfit. I always look forward to seeing your projects.
  2. Mary Jo sounds like we are about as warm as you are. THATS JUST WRONG! You live on that part of the map in my mind that is always warm with lots of sunshine. You did catch the part about the map was in my mind and well sometimes funny things happen in there. Lea, Wyatt has a grandma that loves him so much she will move heaven and earth to make things be ok. Ratdog I watched Scorpion and liked it.
  3. I finished this prayer shawl last night.

    Prayer Shawl

    Thank you. I lucked out on the pooling this time. The gray and butterscotch in two skeins are noticeably darker (middle section) but the gray stripes make it work.
  5. They have a prayer shawl ministry here and they meet in the apartment building straight across the street from me. I turned that one in to them this morning. They have yarn you can use. I have plenty of my own yarn to work up but it was nice to be able to pull the gray I needed off their shelf instead of having to buy some. I needed the gray to break up sections because the colors in a couple of skeins were noticeably darker. Bad thing is the chaplain that was instrumental in starting this retired and they are not being given out so they are several ahead.
  6. Mary Jo dont forget Joe Montana ended his career as a KC Chief so he can guarantee his team (what I heard was he just said "his" team) will win. I was never thrilled KC signed him. Thats why I keep saying we will lose Mahomes and wind up with Brady yet. Well maybe not. They finally fired that gm. https://www.foxnews.com/sports/joe-montana-his-team-win-super-bowl-liv
  7. Thank you darski. You were my inspiration to branch out into making shawls. I needed to make one last year for a friend and fell in love with your green with envy pattern. You were also my inspiration to branch out into doll clothes last year. I am so glad you are here with us.

    Prayer Shawl

    Starting to get settled in to our new home at a senior community. Prayer shawl ministry meets across the street from me. Just finished this one. They want rectangular 24 by 60 inches. This used up some old Red Heart Wintuk in Pebble with a little I Love This Yarn in Greybeard. Stitch pattern is Jamie from this baby set. https://m.lionbrand.com/item/313435353231 This pattern works really well to adapt it to work from center out and if you do it that way there is no need to add a border.
  9. So far only up to 20° and we had flurries this morning. This morning dh ran out to our old area for errands so stopped in for a class at our church. Our neighbor there has a 89th birthday coming up next week so had a present for her. While he was there he went to our old place to give the cats the cans of food he bought the day after we starting living here. Miss Hissy and Cleo greeted him. Gray wasnt around but he tended to hole up somewhere in this kind of weather at that time of day. They had a big bowl of dry food and are being watered. I had been worrying about them especially with the bad weather. I went to prayer shawl group. Only one other lady was there. Chaplains havent been handing them out and they have several ahead so some ladies are dropping out. I am having some problems today posting and have been getting error messages and time outs. Lea its a new world for me. I am the stay at home watch tv and crochet type and not into going out that much. The good thing about these parties is we dont have to do any of the work. Just buy the tickets which seem pretty reasonable. Mardi gras was $15 which includes dinner---crab cakes, New Orleans red beans and rice, chicken and sausage gumbo, beignets and King cake, a Hurricane cocktail, open bar, masks, beads, games, dancing and entertainment by Jazzy Jazz and the Bayou Boogie Shoes Band. Tickets to Super Bowl party were $5 and they are going to have wings, rotel dip, little smokies, chips, vegetables and dip, cookies, soda, tea, coffee and a cash bar. Our tickets are going in for a drawing of some sort but havent heard for what. Completed a prayer shawl last night.
  10. Welcome! I worked in a hospital lab for 20+ years (but 20 years ago). Like you I also worked chemistry. I worked all of Chem dept but somehow I inherited the responsibility of watching over Special Chem-----the ordering, maintenance, QC, etc for Special Chem. A group of us that worked there just got together a few weeks ago. Sadly the pathologist we had been with for so many years passed away and his funeral was the morning before our party so we started the evening off with glasses held high and a toast to Dr. B. He was 90 years old. I started working with him What kind of crochet projects do you like working on? I like making ministockings for a group that fills them to distribute to active military at Christmas. I have made scarves, hats, afghans, and a lot of potholders. We enjoy seeing what everyone makes.
  11. Its absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful pattern and yarn.
  12. 16° but feels like 5° and it had the audacity to snow this morning. Thankfully just a dusting. Dh went over and got our tickets for Mardi Gras dinner and entertainment. Then he trekked back over for our tickets to Super Bowl party. Told him yesterday I was going to be really disappointed if they did not have one here and then we got the email for it about noon today. Might get my wish about seeing KC win a second one in my lifetime. Its only been 50 years since the last and only time. Its kind of a bucket list thing. One that I have absolutely no control over.
  13. We havent seen Tribble around for awhile. Maybe us all thinking about her in unison will remind her to check in. We are covered in ice this morning. The guys treated sidewalks, driveways, and streets yesterday but I imagine most of it washed away. Sidewalk is so nice and shiney. It would be safer walking in the grass. Mary Jo glad you are feeling better.
