WIP-it Wednesday...

...I unexpectedly went out of town and, of course, the blogging suffered.

My mom fell and dislocated her shoulder. She lives 238 miles from me, so I couldn't just pop over to see her. I left the Husband at home and drove to her house on Sunday. I spent a few days making sure she could get around and drove home on Tuesday.  She's handling the injury pretty well, taking her meds and icing it when necessary. What's driving her nuts is having to sit still - she likes to be on the go!

While I was there, I finished a hat for the Ravellenic Games. This is Pine Hat [Ravelry], which will go to Halos of Hope:

Sorry about the photo quality. When I get a chance, I'll photograph it on Blanca, my head model.

Before I left for Mom's, I had started a second project for the Ravellenic Games. I started spinning Bad Wolf [Ravelry], a merino-bamboo-nylon blend from Mosaic Moon. I spun 2 of the 4 ounces. I'll get back to this on the weekend.

In the meantime, I'm working on the St. Charles needlepoint piece.
