I am almost done with the Cincinnati fan scarf and the next one is Pittsburgh. I think I’ve been to all the places these scarves represent: I’ve been to Green Bay – was at a wedding reception a stone’s throw away from the stadium where the Packers play. I have family in Baltimore and we’ve been to Cincinnati for baseball – I am almost sure we’ve been to Cleveland but I couldn’t tell you why or when. It may be Columbus. And we’ve been to Pittsburgh.
I even started the Detroit – think we spent the night there on the way to Canada. Glad I did, the blue I picked isn’t going to work but I have a large skein from the trip to Herrschners and I am going to use that. Here’s a very bad photo of the three that are already done. I gave thought to going outside and doing it up well but then I thought again and this is the one you get.
There’s snow out there and even though it’s melting it isn’t gone and I just wasn’t feeling that. But there will be better pics coming. Trust me, they are really nice looking scarves.
When I was at JoAnn, I also purchased another bamboo handled crochet hook. I’m obsessed – what, you didn’t know?
There is a custom order for a throw made of homespun. I have two – maybe three – of the skeins in the color they want. Hopefully, there will be a third downstairs and I can see how far that gets me before I have to go out and get more. I love shopping from the stash – means a better profit margin.
Because I had to take three skeins from the bins to do the fan scarves that are coming up, I decided to consolidate yarn into bins instead of leaving them half empty, I moved yarn around and I came up with an empty bin. That means I can move it downstairs and put the yarn in the living room into the bin. This is the third time I’ve done this. Somehow I feel this is a good thing though I can’t quite put my finger on why.
Don’t want to think too much about it. It’s how I get into trouble.
