WIP Weds: Step one of Claret Cowl

Good morning all! I have been a busy girl. MiL is much improved and heading toward part two of medical issues. She has lost 52 Ibs. 1/3rd of her weight, thank goodness she is improving. She is getting up and around again. More on this next month.  My back has been improving also, slowly but surely. DS is preparing for return to University for 4th year, it was only a little while ago he had is first day of school, 18 years ago! Who woulda believed it…

With all that has been going on I am rushing to finish my spinning for

    Lovely yarn. I love the colour but usually don’t wear it myself. Unfortunatelly it doesn’t suit me.

    Unfortunately I am a sucker for anything blue and or purple! Most of my projects are some form of these colours :0)
