Life goes on....

I'm just a little quiet lately as my dad passed away about 3 and a half weeks ago.

Not really ready to talk about it yet just that we're all happy that he is at peace and in no more pain.

Life goes on, you know and we get on with the daily stuff. Just, sometimes a stray thought will cross my mind which starts with the word "daddy" and that'll bring a few tears of remembrance.

While my sis was around I finally finished the Noro Striped Scarf inspired by Brooklyn Tweed for my brother in law.

I call it the California Roll








I used two skeins of Noro and 1.5 skeins of a Mystery yarn which I thought was Gedifra Calfornia. I think I am mistaken though, it looks more like Gedifra Fashion Stripe.

Simple and brain numbing but really fast to get off the needles if I had been consistent about it.

I actually finished Topographie too but I haven't taken the pictures yet.

Will get that updated tomorrow.
