I’ll start with the fact that I’m still working on Dad’s scarf, I’m just tired of seeing it in my pictures. But I didn’t get anything new on the needles. So I sewed the seams for my last BSJ, for which I have no buttons. But that doesn’t really matter – look at it, I’m not really sure it’s big enough to fit a newborn. I seem to have lost a number of stitches along the back making the shaping a little interesting. And small. But it fits one of the boys’ bears so it still has some use in it.
The bag of yarn is for what should be my next project. Hopefully I’ll start it this week. I’ll be making some playfood for the boys for Christmas. I have colors to make apple, pear, corn, banana, watermelon, maybe even peas. And by that I also mean I’ve seen patterns online that I think I could handle 😉 We got a great play kitchen on FreeCycle a while back and I want to supply it for the boys. (No, this isn’t the one Littler had a
run in with fall off earlier this week. That one is thankfully smaller.) I looked at etsy to get it but $14 for an eggplant?!? Yikes! I’ll make what I can myself, thank you.
I’m still reading Dracula. The story really pulls you in. And it’s really beautiful, creepy as that is to say. I’m hoping to finish it before the weekend – Van Helsing is going to be on TV and I think it will be more interesting after reading the original. I really enjoyed it when I saw it before but I’m sure I’ll get more out of it now. Maybe we’ll just tape it to watch at our leisure… Since I really need to make vests for a couple pint-sized cowboys who want to dress up for Halloween. 🙂 Some days I think I really am delusional.
Head over to small things and see what else is going on in books and on needles this week. It’s always a good time. (And a good distraction.)
