I think Sunday is becoming my favorite day of the week. Somehow either Saturday is busy with errands and chores, or else I'm so tired I sleep too much. But Sunday...ahhh it's a nice day.
I worked outside in the front yard for awhile this morning. Mostly trimming and cutting back the lantana that is preparing to take over the world. So much needs to be done and now I have a plan. Using a book on tape as a time measure, I've discovered that I can work for about an hour and a half in the early morning before it's too hot and before I tump over. So, if I did that every day, the yard would be in much better shape and so would I. There is only one problem...work. I just don't think I can manage heading out there at 6 AM and then coming in by 7:30 to do a real fast breakfast/bath/get dressed and leave for work. It's true. I need to be able to retire :-). Ummm if only logic worked that way.
I do have a completed project to show you. The bag with beads. Beaded bag. Whatever. It was a kit from Halcyon yarn, and I had exactly enough beads! Actually there was one extra and it broke. I was unable to get my ribbon through the accent beads they sent, and these will someday be switched out for something more appropriate. But here ya go. And what, pray tell, am I storing inside? Uhhh clean underwear? I really had no idea what I was going to do with it, or what I would put in it but it needed some 'stuffing' for it's photo op. Now, looking at the picture, I wish I'd stuffed it taller instead of squatty. Oh well..maybe next time. I really had fun with it and now want to make something else that has beads involved.
Specs: Beaded Bag Kit from Halcyon
including Jaggerspun wool which I really loved working with but no little about.
Needles: Size 5 CP bamboo and bright magenta metal needles for K2K parts.
I also made a dog bed today but it's nothing to write home about although at least it's better than the worn out one it's replacing.
And now I shall return to knitting a little square, which I'm told will later be turned into a little rabbit. Magic?
