Winter is coming!--- Yes for the Southern Hemisphere!

Most of the blogs I read on this site exclaim that spring and summer are coming---- not so for us in the Southern Hemisphere. I needed a new scarf so created the one pictured. It has great draping properties and is sooo warm. I just hope that I do not misplace it somewhere like a cafe.

Spring is here.

Today is the first day of Spring and I'm extremely grateful. Friends and family have pointed out the fact that Wyoming often has wintry conditions until mid-May but we've had a long warm spell this past week and I don't mind a bit. As I told them, "Even if we are having snow and cold, it still matters that it is Spring and we can anticipate the longer days and the return of warm weather."

Colostomy bag cover

I have done some research this evening and can't find any patterns for a colostomy bag cover. A friend of mine had his perforated bowel removed a year ago and has to wear a bag now for the rest of his life unless they can figure out some way to restore things inside. Until then, he needs a bit of a boost. He hasn't been intimate with anyone so I thought he might like something a bit more than just a girdle type piece of cloth to cover it.

Percy Sweater Riff

It's been a while since I've posted on this sight but all is well and I am still knitting. Finished a sweater yesterday and thought I'd start the new year off by adding a photo. It is a riff on a Martin Storey pattern "Percy Sweater" he did for Rowen. It is in their book Classic 4 Ply Designs for Men and Women. I modified his pattern to fit and changed the collar. I used Schachenmayr Merino Extrafine 120 color charcoal. It feels great on the body. Hope everyone had a happy new year's eve.
