Such is progress...

So, I've made some progress on my projects this week. The blanket for my nephew:
I've found the perfect trim of crocheted bobbles and fringe in a country blue. My chalice mitts:
So pretty! I love this color way of soft, variegated blues. I hope to finish #2 on my trip to Tampa next week. My fingers are freezing at work!! My crochet scarf is coming along, too.
I got this yarn on ebay several years back. I'm having fun with my hook again.

I am ready for socks. Exciting and new (...come aboard, we're expecting you...). I've been hesitant to start, for whatever reason. But, I'm signing up for the Hogwarts Sock Swap 5 on Ravelry, so I am forcing my own hand, so to speak. I'm a little nervous, since my first pair will be for someone else, but I have resources! Speaking of swaps, here is a sneak peek of what's going into my Vampy Valentine's swapee box:
I hope she likes it!!

We caught the last minute of the Super Bowl on Sunday. We're not football fans, but that last minute was pretty exciting. Otherwise, mungi dox, which is Wolof for "It walks", or life keeps moving. My daughter had strep all last week, poor thing, but she's back to her old self now, after antibiotics.

My husband was flipping through the channels a couple of night back and stopped on a Charlie Pride performance on Lawrence Welk. We used to watch that show with my grandparents when I was a kid. The grief hit me fast and hard. They are both gone now. I really miss them.

Be well, everyone!
