I love lists.Â There’s something very satisfying about creating a list and then crossing items off that list.Â Tonight, I’m in a list making sort of mood.
1.Â I signed up for an all day class at Yarnover on April 30.Â I’ll be taking a class from MegÂ Swansen & Amy Detjen.Â I cannot wait, I am crazy super excited about this.Â
2.Â I burned my middle finger today.Â Dumb.Â Really really dumb.Â I was making candied pecans and I tested the melted sugar with that finger.Â I know better.Â It makes typing very interesting since it’s on the pad of my finger.Â
3.Â I received my Three Irish Girls Stash Menagerie yarn club today.Â It’s Springvale Bulky in Katharine Hepburn.Â The girls both want a sweater out of it.Â Hmmm… I don’t think 98 yds of bulky will get me a sweater for either child.Â Sorry girls, this one might be for Momma.Â
4.Â I’ve been thinking a lot about weaving lately.Â Maybe I’m nuts, I need another project like I need a hole in my head.Â However, I’m still considering a little Cricket loom to start with.Â Does anyone have any experience with this?Â Do you know where I could pick up a gently used one?Â
5.Â I’m still working on the craziness that is the Helix scarf.Â A garter stitch scarf with short rows out of laceweight and size 1 needles = seriously crazy.Â I still love this kind of crazy!Â
6.Â I should have a new sweater by next weekend…. or definitely by Yarnover.
