Guess what I’ve been up to? (Along with too many meetings, kids with stomach flu, and cleaning the sewing room.)
These are little 5 gram mini skeins of sock yarn.
120 of them.
Here’s the deal. You take a skein of sock yarn and wind it into 20 5 gram mini skeins. They are then sent to some kind lady who is receiving skeins from 19 other people. In a few weeks she sends you 20 different mini skeins. So that means I’ll have 120 different mini skeins of yarn. So fun! I’ve never participated in mini swaps before….so I signed up for six of them. Yeah, just a tiny bit crazy!
What am I going to do with them? I really have no idea. I just thought it sounded like fun. Actually I could make a blanket...out of sock yarn. I’ve been brainstorming, because heaven forbid I make a blanket like someone else has. I’m trying to come up with something brilliant on my own.
I haven’t succeeded yet!
And now its back to the sewing room. I’ve managed to clean it up enough to get near my sewing machine I’m going to finish three projects. One of them I started before Christmas but I’m pretty sure one of them may have been started 15 years ago.
Oh, and I actually made dinner this morning. We’re trying a new crock pot chicken taco soup tonight. It smells really good.
Have a fabulous weekend!!! And may it include some quilting, stitching, and knitting. Oh, and chocolate and coffee.
