I had bought several balls of fancy yarn from Target to put together into a shawl and a scarf for myself and a friend. Never got down to it although it would be nice to curl up with the needles and a throw across my legs and just get things done.
I am trying to resist the urge to buy any yarn until I can get some projects moving because there is just so much to work with right now. I have been on the look out for scarf ideas on the subways and buses, and there’s one I want to try out tonight. (I might yet get one of the scarves done!) The craft store near the house is closing and is offering yarns on discount, but I just don’t have the energy to deal with additional “Projects on Hold” just yet. So I resisted the urge to buy except for a single ball of pink hued dyed yarn, and there was only one of it left. (Good for trimming or accent on an all-pink or all-beige scarf..)
My cross stitch project is moving slowly, but it’s moving again. That one, I want to get off my plate before the new year, so I am trying to do as much as I can, no matter how small the effort is.
And of course there’s the scrapbook which has been moving spread by spread, and perhaps I’ll get something done tonight, given that I’ll be home earlier than normal. (Hopefully..)
