HAED Rotation

Friday, May 19, 2017


I have been making good progress on the Welted Cowl I am knitting for my son's girlfriend. She will be here the middle of June so I need to get going and get it finished. I am a little over half way.

My stitchy bug has returned and I am working on Play Ball  Randal Spangler HAED. This one is for my son who is a huge baseball fan.

Off to stitch now.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Wow. Another post so soon. What am I going to bore you with today. LOL.

My husband Jim knows me so well. He bought me this coffee mug for Mother's Day. My favorite color and everything. See men do pay attention sometimes.

I also made some progress on The Astronomer yesterday. Slow but steady.

Last week my oldest daughter Sabrina sent me the best needle minders ever. My grand puppy Harley.

And last but not least I am knitting a cowl for my son's girlfriend Steph. Progress so far. Love how the colors are distributing.

Okay. I'll let you go now that you are sufficiently bored.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

My stitchy bug still seems to be on vacation. He has popped in occasionally so a very little bit of progress was made. I changed projects because I thought maybe he was bored with the other one. I am now working on The Astronomer by Myles Pinkney (HAED). It is the one that began my obsession with HAED charts. I feel guilty till this month I have not touched him since 2014. (see previous blog post)

Here is what he will look like when finished.

Here is what has been done so far on the entire piece.

Where I started this time around

And the minuscule amount of progress I have made.

Hopefully I will have more progress to show in 3 weeks.

I was doing so good stitching and blogging everyday. Then I fell off the wagon. My stitchy bug decided to take a vacation (I think he was a little miffed because I was also knitting & crocheting). He seems to be back but demanded that I switch projects. Okay with me.

I decided to work on The Astronomer by Myles Pinkney. This is the project that started my obsession with HAED charts. I started it on 2/13/10 and worked on it for awhile until another one caught my eye and I had to start it also. You know where this story is going. He kept getting put away and then taken out for a short while then put away again. Looking at my notebook I keep for this project( each project has their own notebook) I haven't a stitch in to the poor thing since 6/16/14. I feel so guilty for ignoring him for so long. He is out now and I plan on doing a marathon on him. Here is my starting point today and an overall picture of progress. Please excuse all the wrinkles. Apparently the last time he was out I was in a hurry and didn't fold him properly.

Almost forgot this picture. What it will look like when done.


Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow
