It's Tuesday!

  Time for Tuesday's Tallies again. I didn't show my work last week. I had added Meadow green to my Stylin Ripple and I really wasn't sure if I liked it. I kept plugging away hoping that I would change my mind. My Mom got here yesterday and I asked her if she thought the green should come out. She said yes. So, I pulled out 12 rows. Yes, 12 rows. But I am happy with how it looks now.
  I just finished row 42 which happens to be how many days I have been working on it. I like it much better this way and I got my second order of Stylecraft in the mail yesterday. I won't be using every color in the pack for this blanket, but now I have plenty to use just the colors I want. I won't use Meadow, Saffron, Spring Green and Aspen. I can make something else with those. I love green, I just didn't like how it was looking in this particular blanket. I am making this blanket with the One-a-day group on Ravelry.

 On Thursday my friend sent me a text with a photo of a coffee cup with an elephant cosy and asked if I could make her one. I looked and looked for the pattern for the thing and couldn't find it. So I came up with my own. I think it is pretty cute. I actually love elephants and collect them, I might have to make one of these for myself.
I don't know if you can see his tail and his ears aren't that smushy looking.
Kind of hard to tell. It is supposed to be in the seventies today and sunny. In an hour or so my Mom and Autumn will get up and then we are headed over the border to Illinois to go to the Niabi Zoo. I can't wait. It is a nice little Zoo and it just opened for the season last week. I hope everyone has a wonderful week and for everyone else who is on Spring Break this week, stay safe and enjoy.
