Just call me Nurse Cara these days. Max is finally over his cold that turned into a touch of bronchitis, he's half way done with his antibiotic and is definitely feeling better and coughing less.

But I did return home from a wonderful weekend in Ohio to this:

Adam sprained his ankle during a heated scavenger hunt while I was gone and so we've had a strict ice and heat and brace regimen around the house. And lots of moving pillows to keep it elevated. The other side looks just as bad and his toes are bruised too. Gross.

But the whole point in my blog today is sharing a few projects I've recently finished and given to their owners. And one I've not finished yet. There's always one I've not finished.

I finished the Whirligig Shrug in the nick of time (I think it was still a little damp when it was unwrapped in fact). But it seems well received and I know anything will be adorable on the soon to be here BGF. I'm thrilled with it because it was BY FAR the hardest thing I've ever made, especially for it being so small.

Blocked and wrapped up, I finally left the coordinating hat and scarf for Grammy's birthday. Hopefully she'll enjoy them when she returns from the beach to chilly Ohio.

Here's the next one. A surprise, but in my favorite little pattern, the basketweave.
