From Wednesday on, it was surreal, I have been all thumbs! I have never had this many problems in a row! (and my chicken pot pie was a disaster too!)

Yup, the Yarn Challenge continues and I am making progress sorta!

Had to reknit another ear… Oops!

One of these ears is not like the others

Camellia shawlette – A wedding gift

Camellia Shawlette - still casting on. With the way things are going I am taking this slowly.

Began casting on. I am recalling how much I enjoy casting on lace weight yarn – Not! (383 st total!) Cast on 1/2 of the stitches, put it down for the night. Next day finished it off, then realized I was using different cast on method – Oops again! Start again grrrr!

Hopeing that next week things improve.
