It's been a crazy week and I haven't had a whole lot of time to do anything exciting, so here's some random stuff to keep you entertained.
Random thing 1:
I've started a baby blanket
The blanket is Serenity. I actually tried to make this blanket a few years back, before I had much experience with shawls. I was using the written instructions, but wasn't following them well. That, coupled with the fact I was using cheap acrylic, the project was abandoned.
But, one of the babies from the recent boom is due in just 4 weeks. It's a "gender surprise" baby, so I thought a neutral blanket was the perfect choice. The pattern is the thing that makes it special.
Random thing 2:
Inspired by mom's recent clean-out of her wool room. I tackled my house today. It's amazing how much a clean house can lift your spirits.
Random thing 3:
I had a helper with the cleaning
Every time I turned around, he was underfoot. Upstairs, downstairs - he doesn't even mind the vacuum. The other three were all hiding in the bed.
Of course, all that following is tiring work - so he took a good long cat nap. And when I say long I mean it - he takes up the whole loveseat!
Random thing 4:
Mom's new sock machine has been busting a little bit of my stash, as well as hers. I gave her some Top Cat and some Alley Cat and she returned them as socks!
A pair for Daveand a pair for me!
Random thing 5:
Tomorrow I get to see my best friend - who I haven't seen in months. So - better blog post tomorrow!
