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

The Question of the Day


Why does going in circles take so much time???

I feel like I’m spending a lot of time doing things, and yet nothing gets done.  And most of the messes in this house are mine!  I’ve been up to my eyeballs sorting yarn.  I’ve discovered one of my problems.  If I like a yarn, I buy it in four colors.  Then another yarn comes along that I just love.  I then by it in four colors.  Then they discontinue my current favorite yarn so I buy lots more of it.  The end of that story is that I have lots of yarn for sale.  Take a look on ravelry.  If you buy more than one batch,  I may even cut you a deal.  Look at this!  And that’s not nearly all of it!

What else have I been going in circles doing?  I finally put a quilt on that quilt machine.  It’s done.  The binding is going on tonight, and I’m loading a king size one tomorrow.

I’ve also been knitting.  I’m making Mi Escuelita for Ms. In Charge.  I’m using Rowan Calmer.  I’ve always heard it’s a nice yarn, but I’ve never tried it.  I really like it.  And no, I’m not buying it in four more colors.

The body is knit from the bottom up in one piece, so it’s really brainless.  Since I’m spending most of my time going in circles right now, it’s a perfect project.

What else did I do this week?  I got that dreaded dentist appointment out of the way.  I played taxi for the kids.  I think I cooked dinner almost every night.  Some nights, the food was even good!  I cleaned stuff.  Yeah, I went in circles.

Ms. In Charge has 5 friends overnight tonight.  That’s a bunch of noisy ten year olds!  I’d better go get them their ice cream!  I’ll be back soon with a finished quilt!!!
