This week, watching grass grow in Minnesota would be more exciting than my projects.
First, there’s Maplewing. Now don’t get me wrong. This shawl is going to be gorgeous. However, the first 40 rows are 600 stitches each and a row is taking me about 25 minutes. I have 19 rows done. Woo!!!! Hoo!!!
Doesn’t that make your heart beat faster? FYI, a 60 inch circular is a pain. It will be nice to spread the project out to look at, but it curls and is a pain in the rear.
I am excited about the color. This is Whisper Merino Lace from The Woolen Rabbit. The colorway is Arabian Nights. It’s going to be an amazing project. It just isn’t right now!
Then there’s a quilt that was supposed to be put together by now.
I do love it, but it will be a whole lot more exciting when it’s finished. Excuse my poor pressing. I have one of those big steam generator irons, and the button for the steam croaked last night. I need to go find a JoAnn’s coupon and go shopping! I fully intend to finish this soon, but don’t hold your breath, because that was the plan a few days ago.
There’s a new project waiting in the wings that’s calling my name.
I got a new blue blouse that needs some pizazz. What better than lace to accomplish that task? The yarn is Schaefer Andrea in the colorway Florence Griffith Joyner. The yarn has been wound for a couple of years, and it’s time. I’m going to do the Aeolian Shawl from Knitty. I don’t like to work on the same project that so many others are working on, but it’s so gorgeous!
What other exciting things are going on in my life?
~I cleaned up my closet this morning.
~Baseball started. Dreamboy is playing
~Ms In Charge is taking standardized tests this week.
~The Genius hates group projects in college.
~Superblonde is taking her written drivers test. That means she can drive. Help!!!
~And Frankie, he’s just thrilled to be outside riding his bike.
So, that’s all our excitement around here. Are you done yawning yet??? I’ll bet you’re going to be ready for a power nap after all that excitement!!!
