We went for sushi again this week and when it was served, I said, "Wait! I want to take a picture." When I grabbed my phone to get that picture, My Honey had beat me to it.
Four of us shared this plate to sushi this week. It was Catherine, Bill, My Honey, and me.

About a week ago we sold the two baby girl afghan blankets with matching dolls that we had listed in the shop. So, I've gotten busy and have started another one. This yarn is so soft and so pretty. This one will be available in the shop soon.
At this writing we have a baby boy blanket with toy turtle available in the shop, too.
The current knit project shown above is an intarsia Scandinavian knit sweater with different shaping from the last one (images here). The current sweater will have my usual ribbed bottom, collar, and cuffs as well as the gorgeous contrasting intarsia design at the shoulders. The color of the body of the sweater is blue steel heather. In this picture, it looks more gray. The contrasting design at the shoulders and neckline will be pink and white.
Currently, the sweater project is my "carry out" project for waiting rooms and car trips. The baby blanket project is my "at home" project as I wrangle three balls of yarn as I crochet.
The Blue and The Gray Large Lap Blanket I featured the other day in Work in Process is now finished and in the shop and ready to ship.
What are you making today?

I took this image of the Columbus, Ohio, skyline as we passed by on the highway.
The skyline certainly has changed since I visited this city while my brother was at The Ohio State University back in the late 1950's!
All the best,

I took today's images at Cincinnati's Music Hall, in the beautiful foyer.
I love this place. Now that we have retired and are home to attend them, we have season tickets to the Pops once again.
All the best,

Here's the current work in process. It's a large lap or wheelchair blanket. Since visiting my brother in assisted living I have noticed how many people living there are in large size wheelchairs, thus the need for large lap blankets.
This one just happens to be Georgetown University's blue and gray. It will be in the shop soon!
