Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

The Eleven Day Wonder


I did it.  Done.  Finished.  Blocked

It’s Hypoteneuse.    I was only able to do 16 repeats of the pattern with the three skeins of Handmaiden Silk Maiden yarn.  That was 900 yards!  It blocked out to 20 x 73.  I would have liked it a bit longer, but I’m happy with it.

Tomorrow is Birthday day times two.  Superblonde and Ms In Charge are going to be 15 and 10 respectively.  They’re less than thrilled at having to share the same birthday.  Oh, well.  It’s a little late to undo that little problem.

I’m going to take a nap.  And yes, I already started something new this morning.  How did you guess?
