My apologies to all my readers. I have not written much lately. I have been sick on and off since we came back from Maryland. It got pretty bad this Saturday, but I am feeling better now. Unfortunately, it seems that DH has caught the bug too. So, like I said – news from the “plague house”. Because of the Jewish Holiday of Shavuot and because I had that nasty bug I have not done as much knitting and crochet as I usually do. But here is what I got: The Gypsy swirl skirt is finished today. It was almost done for a while, I just could not decide in the ending. I think it might become one of my favorites. It is a kind of skirt I wanted to have when I was growing up. It is bright – truly a “skirt of many colors”. It is very, very twirly. A little girl will have lots of fun twirling in it. The pattern for it will be published soon.
