It seems whatever I do today is not working out the way I thought.
The House: I've been trying to clean this house all week, but every room needs to be worked on. Yes I know all the tips and hints of choosing one project and work only on that one. Well it doesnt always work. I also recruited the rugrats and while its important to get them involved with cleaning their rooms, sometimes I think it would be faster if I just did it by myself. Like backing in a bulldozer and throwing everything out.
How many kid's meals toys do we really need???
Knitting: Ok this is the true source of my frustration. I finished the baby sweater for my new niece last night. I used Bernat's Cotton Tots yarn and I wanted to know how it would handle being washed so I knit a swatch (amazing!) and threw it in the wash with the regular laundry. It didn't shrink, but it fuzzed up a bit. Ok so when I washed the sweater, I wanted to give it a washing that it normally would, but a bit gentler. I stuck it in a mesh bag and threw it in the wash with some hand knit socks and another sweater, on the gentle cycle. Then I dried it on low in the dryer.
I'm not happy.
Do you see all that fuzz and pilling!? And this was just being washed in a mesh bag on gentle!! My sil will throw it in with the regular clothes.
So should I defuzz it and send it out anyway? Or should I just write it off as a bad idea?? I am SO not happy right now.
Cross Stitch: I've decided that I need to move on to the next season. I'm working on fall and while it still feels warm here, we are headed toward winter so I think I need to knit accordingly. But what to knit? I have my new January FlipIts to do and I also have the winter scene that I just bought the fabric for. I can't decide. The sweater has thrown off my creative mojo.
Here are before and after shots of Fall before I put it away.
The only solution to all of this is to order a pizza and drown my sorrows in garlic and beer!
Have a safe day tomorrow!!!
