The last couple of days I’ve been doing treasuries in Etsy. I found this great tool called Treasury Box that lets me make then pretty quickly and I am making two a day. That’s nothing, you should see some people working it, making 5, 10 a day. I have all I can handle with the two.
I am waiting for an order of yarn to come in. Someone ordered 10 pairs of mittens and someone else ordered some pom-poms in navy, orange and white. I ordered the yarn either thursday or Friday and I was hoping to get the notice that it shipped. If I don’t get it later on today, I will have to pull out the gray yarn and start on the mittens and just used the gray that’s coming for something else. I was saving it for my sister’s afghans but I want to get started.
It has occurred to me that this blog is not exciting unless I am relating a Mr. Honey incident and considering Mr. Honey is not all knit related – except when he does something – I need to make my life more interesting so the blog can be more interesting. I am gong to need a little time to work on that.
In the meantime, I am working on Nic’s hat: I am using this yarn that she picked out in Denver. I love it. They say it is a chunky weight but it sizes out like a worsted weight. I am enjoying the softness and the texture very much. So much so that I did check it out on the WEBS site. I didn’t order any – though they are having their super sale. I don’t need anything. I got it. I am pretty safe from falling off the ladder .I thought I finished another afghan square but it turns out I am an entire repeat short so I took down the edging and have to take out the bind off so I can get it where it needs to go. Yes, I could have blocked it but it was making me nuts.
How’s that for excitement.
I have my last Wednesday night knitting group for a while. The group goes on but I have rehearsal starting next week with out spanking new music director and I kinda think I should be there. So, the fall cometh quickly with the holiday this Monday and I hope the sales follow. But until they do and when they do, I am going to have to bring new things to life for my sake and the sake of the blog.
No, no, don’t thank me – my pleasure.
