No, it’s not a necklace. It’s not a dog collar, although that would be really cute!
While we were in Colorado, we visited The Yarn Studio in Minturn. I saw this purse knit up and decided I needed to knit one. The yarn is Lamb’s Pride Worsted, and it knit up really quickly, although there was quite a bit of finishing.
Do I love it? No, not really. It’s awkward to hold, and the shape is a bit strange. But it’s ok, because I’m a process knitter and I get the most enjoyment out of knitting it.
I love the handles though, so I’ll just have to hang it somewhere that I can walk by and touch the beads!
I’m having a terrible time with self control right now. I want to knit every new project I see. I could start 10 projects today, without searching very hard. I have new stuff favorited on ravelry. And I could go through my WIPs on ravelry and see 10 more things that I want to finish. I really think I could sit and knit for 8 hours a day.
And then there are quilts. There too, I have 10 quilts I’d like to finish and another 10 I’d like to start. Every time I look, there is more gorgeous fabric on the market.
Now lets talk about my house. Every room in the house needs work. I’m not a saver. I just need to get at it and get rid of a bunch of stuff! I was an adult yesterday! I turned my climb over closet back into a walk in closet! I also have the nasty habit of dumping my clothes on the edge of the bathtub…for days at a time. That’s clean too, except for the dead centipedes in the bathtub. May they rest in peace!
Today is going to be a quilting day. Tomorrow, I’ll be an adult and do laundry and sort some stuff in the laundry room while I’m there. Now that’s a plan! (Oh, I started something with the Wollmeise I won. I may work on that in between. I’ll show you soon. I promise.)
Note to self: go deadhead those flowers!
