Why does it seem I only write on this blog at the end of the month? I don’t think there’s any real reason for it, just coincidence!
I’ve been doing a lot of knitting and enjoying making some hats. Amy had been asking for a hat so I decided to make one for her in purple, of course! I got some nice variegated purple yarn along with a solid purple at the yarn shop in Clarion and quickly made a hat a couple weeks ago – but forgot to give it to her. Last week, a friend at work needed some advice and some help making mittens so I decided to use some leftover yarn to make Amy some mittens to go along with her hat. This same friend wanted to make a crocheted flower so I made one too, using the purple yarn. Since Amy’s hat was still sitting there, I put the flower on it and am very pleased with my project. I gave the items to Amy today and the girls modeled them for her.
Since just before Christmas,we’ve been experiencing a lot of car trouble. John didn’t have anything dependable to drive so we were sharing my car. Last Sunday night on the way home from church, my car had a flat tire! Unfortunately, the spare could NOT be removed from underneath my car and it had to be towed home. John finally found a car this past week and is now the happy owner of a 1985 Chrysler LeBaron convertible!
