I will be the first to admit that these are pretty ugly!
Don’t you just love that turn of phrase? “Pretty ugly!”
This pink yarn came in a job lot from a yard sale and I’m glad to get it out of the stash. I would have liked to have a bit more, enough to finish the feet, so that the cream was just around the top of the foot, but it didn’t quite work out that way. I now have another pair of slippers for my guest basket by the front door.
We’ve had mild temperatures the last few days and the snow almost disappeared, but it’s been snowing heavily for a few hours now and everything is white again.
It looks like I’ll be making another braided cowl for my boss with a different yarn, so that will be my next project. She called earlier to ask if I could work this evening, and I said yes, and she mentioned giving me some alpaca yarn to make another cowl.
I just started an online course distributed by the University of British Columbia about the history of Chinese philosophy, religion and culture, which fits in rather well with my spiritual path. It involves a series of video lectures and online quizzes and a final exam, plus some supplementary reading. I think it’s going to be very interesting. I naively thought I could crochet while watching the videos, but instead I am making notes and doing my best to follow along with all the new vocabulary I am suddenly learning!
Stay cosy, and talk to you again soon.
