I’m still trying to decide what to work on now that I’m finished with the afghan. There’s several things I have planned and a few things already in the works. I’m about halfway through Orno Abaci, I need to finish my dad’s hat (which I’ve run out of steam on and DO NOT want to finish!), a pair of gloves for the guy that my mother in law takes care of, Bombshell for myself (which I’m not sure if I want to finish). I don’t want to work on any of them though. I have a house dress pattern I wanted to try out for my mother in law but I just keep dragging my feet. Ugh.
I managed to get my kitchen cleaned this morning and a steak marinating for dinner. Paul went to rent Cars since we’ve never seen it and we’ve been on a kids’ movie kick. We watched Ratatouille the other night and it was so cute!
I’m still working on unravelling the sweaters from week before last. I’ve given up on the body of the light blue one because it’s just too felted to pull apart. I got good yarn out of the sleeves though and it was a decent amount. I’ll felt the body more and cut it up to make a purse or something. The light pink sweater has a nylon thread running with the yarn and it’s stretching at a different rate than the yarn and breaking and ugh! I’ll use that for something else as well. It just goes to show that even after recycling tons of sweaters that I can run in to a not so great one every once in awhile.
I’m off to find something to work on, start dinner and let the dog in.
