Passing Down Crazy

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

What I’m Up To Monday


Since I seem to be incapable of finishing anything, I just walked around the house this morning, and snapped some pictures of projects I’ve worked on in the last week.

My sister is going to be a dreaded mother-in-law soon, so she’s making a quilt for her daughter and fiancé.  I can’t leave her alone in the sewing room, so I pulled out a brainless project to work on.  Hopefully I’ll finish it some day and I’ll share details then.

I’ve been spinning a little bit, but it’s not as much fun to spin when I don’t have The Genius here to keep me company.

This is what I spent most of my weekend on.  I think I have a brilliant idea for all of the mini skeins I’m trading.  I purchased a couple of sets on etsy and I dug through all my sock yarn just so I could get going.  I should start receiving some of the traded minis in the next week or so.  I promise a whole post on this as soon as I’m sure where I’m going with it!  Let’s just say I’m having fun.

And then there is this!  My other project for today.  (Who knew a washing machine could have so many fingerprints on it!  Sheesh!)  I really don’t mind doing laundry, once it’s sorted and going and I did the sorting on Saturday.  At least I’ll have something done by the end of the day.

I have a really “unbusy” week this week.  My Hero offered to get groceries.  He says he likes that job!?!  That means I’m going to try to not leave the house until Thursday evening.  That’s my idea of heaven!  I have a list of things I want to get done this week.  I need to clean and sort our closet and get rid of a bunch of clothes.  I’m also going to get a quilt on the long arm.  And keeping this family fed while working around all of their schedules is pretty tricky too.  Oh, and then there’s the whole big cabinet of books and CDs….

And now I’m off to tackle the list….in my pajamas.  I really should make a supermom cape to go with my pjs!!!  Ha!

Edit:  Crud!  I hit publish and the phone rang.  Dreamboy forgot his backpack.  So much for staying home until Thursday evening.  I’m going to school in my pajamas though, dang it!!!
