Latest Order: Coop yarn and books

I seem to love doing things for people, which is why my latest order is not just for me.  There is yarn:

I will keep the leftovers and I’m thinking coasters for gifts!  Or more owls.  We’ll see.

Books:

I’d been wanting to purchase the Barbara Walker treasuries for awhile, so with the Knitpicks book sale, I got these two.  I’ll add to the collection in the future.

Needles:

Because, for the love of all that is good, size 0s always break on me.  I don’t even know how the last one happened!  I wasn’t even using it when it broke!  Ugh!

Some Reading

image

I got some books at the library for some fun reading and thinking about how to use 2 colors in patterns.  It’ll be fun to learn a new technique.

WIP Wednesday

Well, I finished Quill, and I broke my size 0 needle, so all I have left is the squares. 126 squares to go!

I do have some toys that I need to work on, but it’s mostly crocheting. ..  I kinda want a knitting project to work on.

P.S. I have an Instagram account. You can follow me if you want.

WIP Wednesday

Maybe tomorrow I can show you a completed picture.  -Fingers crossed-  I’m going on a retreat (yay, Reach retreat!) on Friday so I’m hoping to finish it by tomorrow.

Squares are in the 30s now.  Then I start over with 99 again.  It’s just easier to count that way.

I finished one side today.  3 more to go.

I have 145 more squares to go for the other blanket.  Still chugging along.

150 and counting!

image

To celebrate getting to 249 squares, I took a picture of all the squares together.  Some are sewn, some are blocked, and some are not. ..  Why 249?  Because the total goal is 399, so now I only have 150 to go!  I can do this! 

Next celebration point is probably in April. ..
