Quick Update

Hello everyone,
 How is everyone today? I am doing well. I haven't been on the computer much lately. I don't feel like I have been any busier than usual, but for the last couple of weeks I haven't managed to post much. Here or on Ravelry. I am working on several projects that I would like to finish before I start a new one. My Stylin Ripple is pretty close to being finished.
It is about 2/3 done. I may actually finish it this week.
 I have also been working on another motif for an idea I had for a scarf. I have been playing with sock yarn for the last couple of weeks. I love how soft it is and some of the color combos are so pretty. This will be a simple scarf made up of blocks.
I see that I need to get a better shot so you can see how pretty the motif is. I like this project because it fits in a tiny little bag in my purse and I can take it anywhere. I have 20 of the 40 squares that I need. This one isn't taking too long either.
 I have been planning a post on how to make a felted crochet bag, I just need to felt it. I hope to do it tonight when I get home from work, I love making felted things. I am going to look at a house this evening after work so I don't know how much fun crafty stuff I will really get done. We don't even know if we are going to move yet. At the end of last week I saw a little house here in town become available. We moved from a big old drafty house to this tiny place. I have enjoyed my time here, but I think it is time to move on. We knew I was having my knee replaced and the old house would have been impossible for me to get around in when I was still using a walker and cane. I was off work for almost 6 months. I am good now, my surgery will be a year ago next month. My new knee is stronger than ever and I have been back at work since October and back to full-time since February. Time to move on.
  That is what I have been up to.  Hopefully, I can get the felted bag post done and finish a few more projects. I get bored blogging about the same projects week after week. I love it when they are finished, mostly because I can start something new. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and I will talk to everyone soon. :)
