I’ve been scarce, lately. In the midst of moving the store to Weston, we embarked on a fabulous adventure. The ginormous houseboat, above, became our home on the Mississippi River for a week. We packed our suits and fishing poles, Lindsay baked cherry pies and fabulous feasts, Bernie fished like crazy, Fred and Eric donned their Captain hats, and the grand-daughters spent hours flying down the waterslide on the roof of the boat. I planned to do lots of knitting.
If you click on the link, below, you’ll see why I didn’t get a lot done. The scenery was totally mesmerizing. This little video was shot from the roof of the boat, and it doesn’t begin to do justice to the beauty and peacefulness of the Mississippi.
But, I have proof that I TRIED to accomplish something. Here are a couple of small things I worked on the Freeform piece. I picked up 13 stitches from the side of some single crochet rows and made a slip-stitch rectangle in yellow and purple.
Then I focused on the two V-shaped negative spaces at the bottom of the larger circle. Two little groups of bullion stitches filled-in nicely, there. Although it looks pretty ugly and out-of-balance, right now, all of these additions left some great opportunities for future additions!
We’re home now, and it’s time to move a mountain of boxes!!
