Playing Catch-up, and the 1st TUSAL of 2014

Here it is, still in the early days of January, and I am already playing catch-up!

Here is my TUSAL jar the way it looked on Jan 1st.:

I always dump out all the orts on Dec 31st and keep them in a bag. On or around the first day in Spring, I scatter them about outside for the birds to use them for their nest-building.

New Years day I finished up Keith's scarf. It was an easy knit.
Here is my reluctant model:

For my next stitch, I wanted to pick something light-hearted. This one has always made me smile.

I had to make a few color changes here because the suggested colors did not show well on my linen.

I am working on her hat. This is what I have so far:

I will also be continuing with the Scarlet Letter Challenge for 2014. I have several charts in my stash. I need to pick one out today and get it kitted up.

Last but not least, I want to thank everyone for their well wishes for Keith. He is doing very well now in his recovery after surgery, and is starting to get his energy back.

Back soon.

Nice scarf, and glad hubby is on the mend!

Your projects for 2013 are beautiful! Love the quilt and the cardinal sampler. I've had that one in my stash and seeing yours made me think of it once more. Just may need to kit it up soon...

Love your new start! Keith looks very dashing in his scarf! So glad he is doing well and recovering nicely. I'm thinking I should scatter my ORTs too. I like the idea a lot.
