Ummm, a bunch of stuff all at once.
The Fishy Crochet (GASP!) Bathmat is coming along. Here are some of the squares being modeled by my favorite tree:
There are more squares now, and they have been sewn together. I’m trying to get the border crocheted on the dang thing. Then I have the fishies to make. I think I’m not cut out to crochet on a regular basis. I can say I’ve tried it, and I will probably not have any objections to putting crochet borders onto some of my knits, but it’s just not for me.
Finished up my Dream Swatch Wrap (warning: that’s a pdf) this morning. Love this pattern. Super-easy and really cute. I used the leftover Koigu from my Get Stitchy Green hat-along hat. I think the greens look pretty cute with the purple-y hair!
I took it with me to the French Quarter Fest yesterday. I got sit on the bank of the Mississippi River, in the warm sun, with the cool breeze blowing, with daquiris by my side, listening to Trombone Shorty and Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, and knitting. Perfect way to spend an afternoon! Knitter’s paradise, I tell ya.
Bought some new yarn yesterday. Yay! Hubby was feeling generous I guess. Not only did he not argue when I wanted to buy more yarn than I needed right then, he encouraged it. He’s so good to me.
Got some more Koigu for my friend’s birthday hat.
And some laceweight wool for no reason at all. I think the colors reminded me of Mardi Gras.
There were half-a-dozen other things I wanted to post about, but I can’t think of them right now. Dang-it. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.
Until next time,
