As you may or may not know, my daughter named my blog. (It used to be our blog! Feel free to guest post, Genius!) I found out today that my mom is capable of Passing Down Crazy as well!!!
This morning she emailed me an Advent project. It’s a lace scarf and you get a pattern each day for 24 days. It starts December 1st. Actually, the first pattern is already posted. There’s also a Ravelry group for it.
Am I going to do it? Of course! Doesn’t everyone need just one more thing to do every day until Christmas! Mom and The Genius are going to participate as well.
messed with my head showed me this project, I went downstairs to dig in my lace cupboard. Yes, I have a cupboard full of lace yarn. Right in the front was this, already wound.
It’s Schaefer Anne and it’s the perfect color for Christmas knitting. I can also use beads if I’d like. I haven’t dug in that drawer yet. If you decide to join, let me know in the comments that I
sucked you in encouraged you to join.
I thought I had posted Frankie’s new hat, but I forgot. I finished it Friday night. Check this out!!!
It’s the Annoyed Monster Hat. I used Brown Sheep Worsted.
Do you think he likes it? He’s hardly taken it off since he got it!
I finished some spinning the night before Thanksgiving and keep forgetting to post it.
The left skein is navajo plyed. All that means is that it will stripe because it’s only one color at a time. The other skein is a 3 ply and mixes the colors. I’ll use them together in a project some day. I have about 440 yards to work with. The roving was purchased from Woolgatherings on etsy. I want everything she dyes!!!
The kids had a snow day today, but everyone is staying busy. I haven’t even heard The Bickersons!!! They haven’t had school since last Wednesday, so I’ll be happy to wave them off tomorrow!
Gotta go! We actually have a social life with real live adults tonight! Yippee!!!
