Living on the edge

This Honey Cowl is so near completion that I’m using my kitchen scale and computing how much more I can knit before binding off, and how much yarn to leave for the bind-off row.  Cutting it close is one of the things I love about knitting! Will it work? Will I have to frog? 

  
I have these two tiny balls left, but my weighing and calculating tell me that I’ll have more than enough to finish. Results tomorrow!

In other crafty news, I made some felt dryer balls and the kids and I embellished some with needle felting.

  
The swirl is my favorite. The boy wanted a face, so we have one creepy ball. 

It has been a verrrry long thanksgiving weekend for me. The kids don’t do well at home for long periods of time, so I have to come up with lots of outside entertainment, which I prefer to be cheap or free, since we require so much of it. Today we hit a new library and a new park/walk. The best part was that we ran into preschool friends at both places.😊 We made good choices!

 
Oh, we also dropped in at a firehouse. Firefighters are so nice to kids!

  
Happy weekend to you! Are you up to fun things?

One thought on “Living on the edge

  1. I love that green; it’s so Wizard of Oz. Firemen and firewomen are a blessing. I’ll never forget how calm and efficient they are when the hub and I were freaked out over our baby seizuring when she was 15 months.
