Since returning to Big Texas, I've made some progress on my Ripple Afghan. I didn't bring it with me to Colorado and beyond because it's too big and it requires its own bag and too many different balls of yarn. I picked it up again last weekend and I was relieved to find that I remembered how to croshay. I even remembered the pattern. The blanket is now officially too wide to be declared a scarf and abandoned, and I think that someday it might be a real blanket.
Croshay tends to be a little hard on my wrist, so I have to limit my croshaying to one or two stripes a day. You'd be surprised how long this can take. I'd love to be croshaying right now, but I'm out of excellent DVDs. I wish our mail would get here earlier in the day. It is sometimes 5:00 p.m. before the mail shows up. I'm expecting the next Big Love disc to arrive today along with the latest Rockin' Sock Club yarn. Of course, the mail is extra slow today.
Yesterday I went to Austin for some Symphony related business and after that, I got together with my new friend Grace and her mom, my old friend Amanda. I made this sweater for Grace last spring and she was kind enough to model it for me. She's pretty wiggly, so it was hard to get a good shot of the sweater, but you get the idea. Her dad also took some pictures and I bet that his are better. I was glad to see that the sweater is still too big. Hopefully by the time it gets chilly in Big Texas, it will fit just right.
