Today I have a lovely crochet creation to share with you. I can hear the crocheters rejoicing now and if you are a knitter and not a crocheter I encourage you to just take a few minutes to peruse the project.
Karen our Store Manager brought this cowl into my office today:
It was crocheted by Mary who
keeps me sane takes care of all of our marketing and is a fabulous knitter & crocheter. The pattern is the Calm Cowl by Suzana Davidovic and its a free download on Ravelry.
Mary used 2 skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino, making this a relatively affordable project as well. She said it moved along pretty quickly and the stitch pattern was easy to follow.
While I was in the store I noticed this:
I love this – all cuddled up while someone he knows is shopping in the store.
For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you know that last week J2 had a sledding accident and broke the 2nd & 3rd metatarsals in his right foot. I was disappointed that I had to cancel my plans to head to Stitches West, but being a Mom is my first and most important responsibility so as we waited for the radiologist to read the x-rays, I reassured J2 I wasn’t going anywhere. That first night and next day were a little rough but kids are resilient and he’s well on the road to healing.
Thank you to everyone who expressed sympathy and good wishes last week. It meant a lot to both of us, but especially J2. I also have to thank the WEBS team, particular Linda our Customer Service Manager for sending this:
From Edible Arrangements, J2 was tickled to receive such a special delivery. Even better than the fruit cut into flowers and arranged as a bouquet was this:
The ceramic base featured a hockey goalie! What are the chances that would be an option? The fruit was great all weekend long and the base is now a fixture in his room. Unfortunately his hockey season is over for this year. We have just enough time to get him healed before baseball tryouts.
