I have been packing and doing some other stuff too. I am working on a rug from some yarn that I got from freecycle. It is rough yarn, so I figured a rug would be the best thing. Was working in rounds and didn't like the seam, so after it was over 2 1/2 feet wide, I ripped it all out and started it over in the round with no joining. It looks better and it is in fall rust colors. So, hopefully I will have it finished soon. Now it is about 3 feet wide and coming out really alot nicer. I changed my hook size up too. here is some other stuff that I have done in the last week.

Jimmie Johnson 2008 Sprint Cup Champion

Well everyone, Jimmie Johnson did it. He is a 3 time champion. And he made history by getting them in a row. He is such a great driver. But now the season is over and I have to wait till February for the season to start again. Will he get a 4th one next season? We will have to wait and see. He will get top honors at the Banquet in New York.

Hello everyone. I feel like crap but just had to post. Did you see my Jimmie Johnson win that race on Sunday. Just one more race to go till he is the 2008 Sprint Cup Champion for the 3rd time in a row. Only one other driver has accomplished that and that was over 30 years ago. Cale Yarborough did it, but he was only racing against 12 other racers, Johnson has 43 other racers against him. He is amazing!

Okay, I have been really sick but managed to make a beanie for Don. Just hdc mostly and then a reverse sc on the brim. Nothing fancy, but will keep his head warm this winter. the image is kind of dark.

Lavish Lace Shawl finished.

Well, I finished the shawl this morning. I only did 33 of the 49 rows, as the shawl was already long and I was running out of the cone of yarn. It came out pretty I think. I want to get some more of the cotton so that I can make a hat to match it. I am thinking of giving this as a Christmas gift. The pattern can be found at Lion Brand.
Doesn't Travis look thrilled to be my model in these pics?
I have to go. Have a great day.

Making another shawl.

I started another shawl. It is a new one from the Lion Brand Newsletter. I am doing it in Pastel colors. Peaches and Cream cotton. I am already almost 1/2 way thru. I did get a better picture of Travis' hat It was a little big, but he still likes it anyway.

Today's stuff I was doing

Hello Y'all. Today I wasn't feeling well at all. I slept alot, but managed to make my son Travis a beanie. It came out kind of big, but I like it. I just did single crochet for the most.

Jimmie Johnson didn't do well in the race, but he is still in the points lead. I have faith in him. 2 races to go. Phoenix and Homestead.

Haven't found a place to move yet, but will start packing things for the move in the meantime. Wish us luck in finding a place soon.
