December was quite a busy month for me with a house full of people, both kids home for a while and hosting the holiday. 2017 for me is the year of the empty nest. A true empty nest that is. Both kids are 2000 and 3000 miles away now. We decided to drive out our son's dog and some of his boxes out to him the day after Christmas as the weather was decent for several days in a row. That was an ordeal. On the drive back I finished the latest item for my Etsy Shop. It's a ribbed cowl using Caron Cakes blended wool yarn in Cookies and Cream color.
It's rather soft and light yet the ribbing gives it a slight thickness. This is probably the last item I put in my store for a while. I have a few baby blankets to make and a blanket for my son's new home. By 5pm tonight the latest storm should be here so as long as the power holds out I'll be up in my office crocheting and watching Stargate Atlantis on Hulu. :)
You can find this item in my Etsy store here.
