Good morning on this YOP1718 Sunday; it’s 73° already and only 9:54 a.m. There wasn’t much cold air brought in last night by our house fan so the house is starting at 72° today.
Yesterday was mid-90’s; oh boy was it hot when I opened the front door and stepped out. E and I were able to go out for dinner since our girls were at a bowling party with the neighbors. The two of us were going to drive over to Palo Alto for lobster rolls but my man was so sore from his insane bike ride up Mt. Hamilton (the tallest peak in the Bay Area). So our favorite, sushi place was our second choice; they have at least three pages of creative rolls. It’s always fun to look at the pictures and see what I’m in the mood for; I try to pick ones I haven’t eaten yet. I may have to keep a list. What’d you have for dinner yesterday?
So last week there was no progress at all. My procrastinator defense mechanism had kicked in before that and I was spending lots of time watching Gilmore Girls and winding them up as mentioned here. I dug out more from my bulky and worsted weight bins and started on those. That’s what they look like. I SMH at how dumb I was to think, oh I can figure out what it is later.
I used to tie yarn remnants to its label years ago but they all had gotten thrown out. I started doing that again and maybe I need to organize that as well by keeping them in a binder somehow, yeah? I tied these tags onto the balls tight but they could come off. I have to get a bin for these as they’ve taken over the coffee table and the side table.
My husband looks at them and asks, “What is this?”
I naturally respond, “This is my area because I don’t have my own craft room.”
Recently, invisible deadlines loomed over my head so I got back up on the horse and worked on Edginess. I am practically almost done with this lace chart – ҉*\( ‘ω’ )/*҉ hoorah! Two weeks ago you saw it at row eight. I’m now on row 15 which is the last lace row and then 16 will be purls.
I’m grateful you helped me decide which direction to go for this WIP. I feel so much better about having a solid section of black after the speckled, garter part. I can’t wait to get to the applied edging in the speckles which will be a new technique for me.
Okay, I’m off to read the other YOP posts and then I have a baby hat to block and another baby beanie to cast on as her ETA is in 19 days. Have a good Sunday and TTYL.
