It has been a nasty week – little sun, rain, cutting wind, everything infused with a shade of grey…
At the beginning of the week, all the kids were disappointed on Purim when it was a day of cold, with rainstorms on and off all day. Kidlet made her own costume, she went as the “Wannabe Queen”. Original, to say the least…
Now that the rush of the Ravelympics is over, and I snagged seven medals, I’ve gone back to knitting kidlet’s Central Park Hoodie. The back is now finished, I’m working on half of the front. It’s a very quick knit!
Kidlet has also requested a hat, and we chose the yarn for that today. I’ll be knitting her the Butterfly Hat by Sofiya Cremin in white. After the hoodie, of course.
I’ve also joined a KAL to finally finish my Luna Moth shawl by Shui Kuen Kozinski! I started this over a year ago, then when I finished a skein I couldn’t find the rest of the yarn!!

This is my 91st post on my blog. As I approach the magical 100 posts, I would like to celebrate it with a drawing. For my 100th post, I will give away a skein of Mondial Ciao sock yarn, enough for one pair of socks or a Baana scarf or whatever else 100 grams of fingering weight yarn will make. It’s striping yarn in primary colours, chosen by kidlet.
Every comment on my blog from now until the 100th post is one entry. For the 100th post, I’ll put all the entries into a hat and to be fair I’ll ask partner to draw a winner! So let’s hear you!
Shabbat Shalom to all.
