Good afternoon everyone! I wasn't here yesterday because I had errands to run in another county far far away. lol It was just over a 1 hour drive 1 way, not too bad but still pretty far. By the time I got home I decided to just work on my Victorian Ripple kit afghan & finished it. WOO!
After that I started a new kit, Peaceful Pastels Afghan:
Today I'm going to work on the Wendy Blanket some more. It's so huge that even though there are only a few more rounds left, they take forever to complete. Especially the outer granny square round. So many granny squares to make that outer round! WOW! This thing is going to be large enough for a king-sized bed (ours is only queen-sized). I won't be here Monday, I have a wedding to attend out in Ft. Worth. Eve & Kyle will be here with the pets while I'm gone at least. I don't want to leave a brand new puppy home alone for too long. Have a great weekend everyone!

Good morning. I got up much earlier than usual today, but then spent a long time socializing with people who wanted to talk, so I'm no further ahead than usual. Oh well. Maybe someday. I've spent most of my life saying "maybe someday". I worked on my knitted Lamar Scarf yesterday & today I'm going to work on my knitted sweater. I've just got to finish 1 sleeve & then it's done. This sweater wasn't made to be fancy, it was made strictly to be super warm & I can't wait until it's done! Then I'll have a super warm sweater & I'll go back to working on fancy hand knit sweaters. Have a great day everyone!

Knit Pattern of the Day
Good morning! Not much going on today. Kyle was supposed to start a job in Allen today but just got put on the schedule for another job he applied for that's much closer & at a place that much better fits him. He called the other job & they congratulated him & now he gets to work in a really cool place. :) I worked on my Wendy Blanket yesterday & hoped to finish it, but didn't get much done because everyone wanted to talk, so I socialized most of the time until Pete got home from work, which is when the crocheting or knitting gets put away for the day so I can cook dinner for us & the watch TV with hubby. Today I'm going to try to work on my knitted Lamar Scarf.

The Beatles: Love Me Do
Knit Pattern of the Day
Good afternoon! Late start today because I suddenly felt like playing Minecraft at bedtime last night & was up until 2:30a playing. Not smart. I have no idea why the sudden urge to play & why so late?? Anyway, I slept late today for obvious reasons & now it's afternoon already. Ugh. It's all on me though, my fault entirely. Weekends are rough as far as getting crocheting or knitting done, but I did manage to get a couple rows of the graphghan done. Today I'm going to work on (& possibly finish?!) my crocheted Wendy Blanket. If I do manage to finish it (I doubt it though), then comes the choosing of yarn for the next one. It's one of my favorite patterns, so I'll definitely be making another. But do I use my stash yarn or my favorite Hobby Lobby yarn? I used my favorite Hobby Lobby yarn for the current one & it came out great. The problem with the stash yarn if I use it is that I need so many different colors for this pattern, that I'll end up mixing yarn brands. Not always a problem, but with a project this large it may be VERY noticible that the yarns don't match. Different weight yarns is the issue here. Everything will look great until I have one that's thicker or thinner than the rest. We'll see. I'll decide when this one is finished. It's SO close to done, but I know how far I can get in a day & I think although I'm really close, today won't be the day.

Good afternoon! Late start today. I overslept, but I think I needed it, so it's OK. We didn't go out yesterday & I didn't say anything because we needed to go out today anyway. So I got ready to go out today, but Pete is very distracted working on a bunch of stuff & 5 minutes has turned into hours, so I guess I'm not going out today either. He has to run an errand in Plano later but I'm going along for that one. If he wants to do more than that errand, he can come back & pick me up after & we can go into McKinney, but we probably won't. More crocheting time I guess. I worked on my favorite entrelac knit afghan yesterday & today I'll be working on my crocheted Ravenclaw grafghan.
