Well my frigging sinus are killing me and it is no fun doing 12 hour shifts with a sinus head and body-ache.

My daughter was down last week and I got her started knitting circularly. As she puts it she "levelled up from scarves". We did have a great time. We always do and I am always sad when she leaves.

I guess that is about it. No photos of shrugs yet.

Knitting at Read's this week on Wednesday evening. Usual time and cancel if there is a storm.

Exciting day today!
You will find me at Cricket Cove, Moncton teaching two classes this morning "2 Mittens Tip to Cuff on 1 Circular Needle". Promises to be exciting and fun.

One of these days I am going to take Heidi of London Wul up on her offer and teach a class there. I just have to think of a class to teach.

I am working on my third shrug!! I have made two already! Now this may seem excessive. So my DH believes. Honestly it is not. We are to a sunny and warm climate for a week in March and I am at the age that although I may enjoy wearing strapless dresses not everyone will enjoy seeing my bare arms. Let's face it after a certain age decollete and wings are not attractive. Despite what your adoring and clever spouse tells you. I have completed a shrug using B&L cloudspun and a shrug turned cropped cardi using B&L Tuffy. I hope to upload pictures later if I can coerce DH to photograph me modelling.

Knitting at Read's this Wednesday evening. See you there.


Doris's finished scarves and a shrug. Or as Doris calls it "a bed jacket". Very nice.
