My prize from Aknita:)) socks and more
Some gorgeous pictures today:)
Firstly the forest canopy shawl I won in Aknita's contest. Lydia is modelling for us today and I think the colour goes perfectly with Lydia's paint don't you? Also a close up of edge so you can see how fabulous it is. Thank you Joy the colour is perfect for me:))
This is followed by my second pair of finished socks for March. Yarn is Opal magic and from Shona
perfect for Spring don't you think? Made these a little smaller because I didn't want to make all socks same size. Adds more variety to the knitting and to the finished sets. Also means more than 1 pair can come from some of the yarn.
Final picture is from Yvonne , sent as part of her February fling to release some stash upon the world:) Feltable so I foresee bags in its future.
Second week is over for Mr Mog and his radiotherapy. 9 treatments done already. No problems so far but I'm touching wood it remains so. Main side effects seem to be coming from the hormone injections, making it hard for him to keep his temperature stable. This is worse at night where he seems to be either frozen or boiling. No happy medium. We've put the heavier duvet back on.
