That Place On Market
I thought I'd post some pictures of the place where I'm volunteering. A really nice place, not just in the goods they make and sell/give away for charity, but in the actual appearance and the people who volunteer there. I've been working hard to organize the yarn we have (and we have quite a good selection!), and spent some time this past Saturday winding some yarns into cakes. I'm hoping to go back through and price some yarns that haven't been priced, and I have a sweater that someone brought in I'd like to finish. There's always something to do! I am having a good time, it is nice to see human beings face to face, not just ones I meet on-line (although I really enjoy interacting with my on-line friends, also).
I've been horribly sore this weekend, and as a result more than a little down. Maybe it's just the weather, but the RA has really been playing havoc with my joints. The new med, Colchicine that my Rheumatologist prescribed hasn't helped at all as far as I can tell.
I finished the Montgomery Scott's Hat for my brother Clinton. I wrestled with the short rows needed for two of the sides, but eventually managed to figure it out. Or at least did something that looks right. Then I wrestled with the stitching needed for two of the seams, again finally figured out the instructions, but it took me forever! But, it's done and as soon as my brother gives me an address I'll be sending it off to him. I figure as we are in Ohio, we will have a few more cold days that will require warm head gear.
