    I rolled a skein into a ball on the moorland blanket...+1 = +3. I think I'm down to the last four skeins/colors now.

    Oops! Apparently I skipped a stitch...

    Unfortunately, there's really not a good fix for that except to rip back down to it.

    Thanks, Mary and Brenda! The only thing worse than no electricity is no water. I agree about not getting out in snow or ice.

    Judy, the list is really not as bad as it sounds. The Moorland blanket is 3/4 or more done. Not sure if I'll keep it or give it away. The temp blanket is not on any time schedule. It was on the list last year. The cardigan kits are short sleeve lacy ones so I don't think they'll take too long. The shawls/lapghans for the nursing home are whenever I have time. The blanket for RM is for Christmas and is one I've made before--a wave type ripple with car appliques. And the scarves are child size so a quick make. I do have to get off my duff and get the baby blanket done this month. I've been making pot holders in the thermal stitch as a mindless thing when the grandkids are here or when I need to take a small project. Now I just need to find someone who needs some before I end up with a lifetime supply.

    Mary, pretty blanket--I like the colors. It's been quite a week with next week shaping up to be busy also. Took my truck in for a recall repair. Had a dentist apt. I finally got to Sam's to stock up on some stuff and got my upper GI scheduled for Monday after playing phone tag for a week. DH had an apt with the hematologist (he has MGUS) and his numbers have gotten worse, so he's scheduled for another bone marrow biopsy on Thursday. Saying a prayer but it looks like he may be advancing to multiple myeloma. We're back to some colder temps and rain today which is good for the duck hunters. I hope to get some crochet time this afternoon, but the Christmas stuff still needs to be put up, so we'll see which task wins. Hope everyone has a good weekend!
