Happy Father's Day!
There is a little golf tournament going on over here (you may have heard of it) so my husband is going to spend the day there - assuming the weather holds up. I am doing the ultimate sacrifice by going to his parents house without him today - I hope God is watching and is tallying up these extra points I am sure to be earning. At least I can do a little bit of shopping before I go - very exciting - the dollar store and Walmart - but two places my husband won't step foot in.
Due to the rain and the aforementioned golf on tv all day yesterday, I was able to move forward on getting my crafty mojo back. First we went to Lowe's and purchased a cabinet so we can move our pantry from the boiler room into the garage - necessary to make room for my new space. Went to the diner for lunch and then sat on the couch to knit for most of the day. As the husband napped I even got to watch some of my own tv (including Dark Knight - totally didn't get the hype) which is not a common occurrence around here. But look, I've actually managed to cross #1 off the list!
Patterns: Tiramisu Blanket , Matching hat (my own design I made up as I went along) and Mary Jane Skimmers. All made with peaches and cream dishcloth cotton. As you can see I decided to nix the bib idea and made the hat instead. I think they all came out pretty darn cute. Those mary janes are adorable but it was very difficult for me to get guage. My fingertips are still sore for crocheting as tightly as I could with a D hook. Details for all will be posted on ravelry shortly. So on to the Helena sweater, which I've already casted on for and knit a few rows. Taking that to the in laws to see if I can get more done.
I'm so excited to be making progress. In searching around blogdom I've found a few other inspirational things. Check out this awesome collage on Michelle's blog - she stole the idea and I want to do the same - is it totally me or what?? What I can't figure out is how I can avoid buying so many different papers for just a little tiny punch. It would be great to do a collage-along or something so a bunch of people could all share or something....I'll have to think on that one a little more. Also, please check out the newest project from Allegra - Petite Purls. Is it so awesome - I need to add that little Jacques to my list!
