Entry: Daughterly News Tuesday, June 01, 2010



 

Last  month I travelled to visit with my daughter and son-in-law in North Carolina which was a lot of fun, wish I could have stayed longer. 

 

 

It was only for a few days so I brought only two projects to work on.  A baby blanket and the second Bayerische sock.

 

On the way there on the plane I put a ball of yarn in the seat back in front of me and naturally walked off the plane without it so I couldn't work any more on that project.  When I picked up the Bayerische sock I remember too late that  one of the needles had broken, since I forgot about that I hadn't brought any extra needles in that size. 

Now I was project-less.

 

Not to worry - daughter took me to three local yarn shops.  At one I bought a skein of Malabrigo sock yarn which the shop owner wound for me and I was back in business.  By the time I got home I had almost finished the first Pomotamus sock.  I really like the Malabrigo sock yarn - very nice to work with and the colorway is pretty too.

 

 

My daughter learned to crochet within the past year and likes to do amigurumi.

 

She designed and worked this dragon up herself - isn't it adorable?

 

   

 

 

For Mother's Day she made this sheep for me - it is just too cute.....

 

 

 

A few weeks ago I started a pink baby sweater with this pattern from Garnstudio......just as I was closing in on finishing the sweater my daughter and son-in-law called to let us know that we'd become grandparents next January - yay!  Double yay for someone to wear the sweater (ok, I know it could be a boy, I'll just have to make a blue sweater too).

My husband, "The Big Guy", was five years old when the Armistace Blizzard hit their farm in High Prairie outside of Sogn. Before the blizzard hit, they were just having a regular farm day. Things changed rapidly. His dad started the tractors so they would not freeze up and got the cows into the barn. He and his mom were pulling chickens out of snow drifts that were ever growing. Only his dad went out of the house for the next week and that was only to milk the cows and clean the barn. He said that the snow came up so quickly and no one saw anything like that again.
