More FOs

I finally finished the Log Cabin blanket for my doll but I haven't gotten around to taking a picture of it yet. It is 13" square and I crocheted a little scallop border around it. I wove in all the ends on the back.

I also finished my second mitten last week.

My mentor from church and I are going to knit prayer shawls for some people at our church. Today I went to Hobby Lobby (with my parents) and bought 3 skeins of Lion brand Jiffy in a purplish color. We're going to start them on Wednesday after the lenten church.

I finished the top band of my Quinn bag and I'm currently on row 7 of the first repeat of the body of the bag. I was on the last repeat of the top band when I realized I had crossed a cable the wrong way on the first row of the 12 row repeat! So I had to frog the 12 rows of that and redo it! That was annoying but I'm glad I caught it before it was too late.

My Wicked sweater is about 10 1/4 inches long from the underarms. I'm going to make it about 11 1/2 to 12 inches long because I like longish sweaters and the border at the end is about 1.25" so then the end length would be 12-13 inches long which would be pretty good, I think.

I only had 3 days of school this week and four last week!! Last week we had extremely cold wind chills (30 below zero) so we got a "cold day". It was really really boring because I had no one to do anything with and I didn't feel like knitting. This week it snowed 16 inches in 24 hours so we had a snow day. I stayed in my pj's all day! It was awesome! Then I didn't have school on Friday because they had some reading convention thing. I slept from 12:30 am on Friday to 11:15 am on Friday. Then I made myself real oatmeal on the stovetop. (real meaning oatmeal from the cylinder box and not the little packets). Then I added dried fruit (craisins, cherries, blueberries, strawberries), cinnamon, brown sugar, and a little bit of syrup. It was delicious and it kept me full the whole afternoon!
