Back to work, but ...

For how Long?

Well it really won't be for long. I'm working until August 25 and then I'll be laid off. Not to worry ... it's a "good thing." I really do want to find a job closer to home and perhaps part time. But at least ... closer to home so the travel time to & from work is cut way down. I'll be home for Bill more and that's what's important to me right now. He's doing well, but I feel better if I'm there with him.

So here's my latest FO. I just have a "thing" for ruffles ...


I'm not sure where the pattern came from. Someone said it was one of those free handouts from "Lion Brand" but I can't find it on their downloads so maybe it was a store handout. Altho, what I got was typed up, but there wasn't a web address to find it on the top of the sheet, so I'm not sure if that's where it came from.

If someone knows ... let me know and I'll link to it. It's called a Double Ruffled Scarf.

Update: This is a free pattern download on Ravelry called "Ruffled" by Vanessa Ewing. Altho, I made it scarf length and not as a neckwarmer. Happy knitting!


Loved this pattern!

While I'm knitting ...

I make plans in my head until I can find the time to work on those plans.

For what's it's worth, here's one of those things that I imagined first and then created!
A little purse or coat zipper charm ...

Other plans are still swimming around in there too ...
