I took the latest shawl off the blocking mats.
It is a beautiful burgundy/wine color. It will go into the finished project drawer. It is Lion Brand Amazing Lace Yarn part acrylic and part nylon and the yarn people call the color Cranberry Garland....fancy smancy color name.
As I was looking at my stash of yarn....I came across a skein of plain grey yarn...I recalled I said I would make my brothers some of the wasp nests that I made last summer.
Remember these...they are crochet in the round...I think just a single crochet...they are stuffed with plastic grocery bags and I sealed them with Mod Podge. I hung one near the front door of the sauna and one under the back deck...and we had no wasps last summer. I declare them a winning idea...the idea is that the wasps think other wasps started a nest so they move on to someplace else...works for me as there is nothing quite as painful as a wasp sting. I have one more place I could hang one...so I will make nests for awhile.
I am also working on two other crochet projects. Always something to finish!
We got about 1/2 inch of snow...so I shoveled...easy outside work!
