I had hoped to spend the day cleaning in preparation for the new year, but instead I did a lot of playing around with yarn and patterns. And now my house is looking pretty messy and it's still not clean. Oh well, there's always tomorrow. Or next year, as the case may be.
Decided that this project did not work with this yarn, so despite being almost done, I decided to frog it.
I think the yarn would work better in a baby blanket instead of a baby garment. It's Mission Falls 1824 Wool, which is more Aran weight than worsted, at least when I use it.
Can't decide which of these three patterns to use for Steve's scarf. Any advice?
I went through seven binders of patterns today, made sure they were all in Ravelry and/or my GoodReader, and then pared the paper copies down to two binders. I felt great, until I found the large suitcase full of yarn that Meredith had given me from her stash that I had forgotten about. Sheesh.
So Stephanie and I left the mess and met Melissa at Fellini's for a Greek salad and pizza. The house wasn't any cleaner when I got home, so I made chocolate peppermint cookies. Yum.
Hope 2013 is a sweet year for us all!
PS: I love my craft room! I've been in it all evening, sorting, labeling, and resorting. Pictures soon!
