Seeing Red

No I'm not feeling hostile......today. I started this lovely and free pattern for a wide scarf or a narrow wrap using Lamb's Pride in a lovely deep red color. It shows a little brighter in the photo.

The kitchen is coming along, most of the cabinets are painted and next it'll be the walls and replacing the trim. There is a lot to do and it takes a while given the fact that Aaron is working weekends and nights to complete the job.

Nothing else significant here other than the fact that Mr. Larj has his first weekend off in more than a month. He works as a printing press operator at a fairly large shop and puts in 12 hours a day +. He along with his co-pressman, put up a united front and said that they were not going to work this weekend since they were both at their limit of endurance. Hopefully he can get some rest and re-charge his batteries.
That's a good goal for a weekend.

Beautiful scarf! And the pattern is free, I can hardly believe it! I've been looking for a lace project for a red stole I can wear for Christmas parties to liven up my otherwise funereal garb, but a scarf like that would work even better. Lovely work!

Home Mr. Larj got some rest over the weekend.
