First of all, I am VERY happy we have started Spring Break. I really could use the time off. (I reserve the right to change this emotion on Sunday AFTER the kids have been home for a week).
So much to blog abt, so little time. Now that we are in Spring Break, I have to share computer time. I'm not thrilled with this. So what's been going on?
Saturday Sky and temps
I am SO much quicker with socks on size 2dpns than on size 1.5dpns. BUT I am enjoying it immensely!! Malabrigo is lovely to work with. It's too bad it's as pricey as it is, I could see doing an entire sweater with it if there was no limit to the yarn budget.
This project......It WILL get done, just because I'm stubborn that way, but it has changed from a sweater with a pattern to a plain sweater to a plain vest. This sweater will fit a teenager when I'm done, which is good because there are very few charity donations this size. However it is taking a LONG time to complete. Once done, it will go into the charity bag to mail out later this year. I have also decided I will stick to small children knits.
Speaking of small children knits, I just found out one of my sils is pregnant so that means more knits to be made!! Of course this gets the creative juices going and I want to make sweaters and blankets and quilts for both the new baby and the older brother. And that also makes me want to knit for my other 1 y/o niece in CA. PLUS making more things for Baby Girl. Oh and that quilt for #1 Son that I've been working on for the past 5 years......(actually I think it might be longer now). I have been going thru my binders looking for projects to knit, but as I look thru them, I'm realizing there are a bunch of patterns I'll never do. I really need to clean it out. Yet another project for another day.
It always amazes me when people tell me they are bored. I would love some of their extra time.
