Yarn ALong


Ahh, sweet Wednesday.  And what have I been up to this week?  A bit.  Not as much as I would like but, umm, I think that can be assumed.  Knitwise I finished my most recent secret project.  Loved it and I can’t wait until I can really share it with you.  And of course you know that by “finished” I mean there is no more knitting to be done – but it is still to be cast off and blocked.  And yes that means I now have two projects sitting on needles wait to be cast off,  blocked, and sent off to a couple of ladies I love.  My hope (because hope springs eternal) is to cast off the second knit today and then sit down tonight with YouTube and start casting off the first.  But there is also the very real option of just starting new projects until I run out of needles 😉

As far as books go I did not make much progress, probably because I had too many due too close together.   Last Child in the Woods expired before I could finish it and I’m only partway through 100 Way to Simplify Your Life by Joyce Meyer.  I’m liking that a lot of her suggestions are more about emotion and attitude – don’t judge, avoid excessive reasoning, choose your battles, stop procrastinating.  I also like that it’s a 213 page book with 100 chapters – makes reading go quickly.  Now I just have to finish it before it expires tomorrow night.

Now to link up with Ginny.  Tomorrow I’m hoping to post about my recent visits to my stash, both yarn and fabric.  Last year’s attempt at stash bashing was pretty much a bust so I’m planning to make another go at it.  Here’s hoping I don’t find any other must knits or must reads today!

    Good luck with cast off! It’s not hard once you get the hang of it! I’ve been known to have a project on almost every single needle I own. Just because my mind is always thinking 10 projects ahead of where I’m working!!

  5. Okay the option of just casting on til you run our of needles made me laugh out loud 🙂

    Good luck with the cast offs.
