Some Days

Sometimes, I have weekend days like this:  I wake up and think, I'd love to go and look at all of the cool, new knitting patterns that have come out in the last few weeks.

And then, I end up like this.

It is such a guilty pleasure to browse patterns. Almost as good as ice cream.

I've got no excuse — in addition to work and family, I've got a knitting agenda for the rest of this year. I've got Arlo to finish in the next couple of weeks, and then Glacier to take up. After that, I want to finish my Drachenfels and my Summer Moon.  I've got a couple of smaller projects that I've either swatched for or cast on so that I have some good travel knitting on hand, Forest Park and Wrapped in Baubbles.  And I have plans for this amazing handspun my cousin Ann made for me.

But every once in a while, I like to spend a few hours, cruising through the new patterns in Ravelry and dream about lace, cashmere, and cables.  It's free and it's not fattening.  


Virtual Yardsale – Updated 2/11

Welcome to My Virtual Yard Sale.  I’m spring cleaning, so I’m looking for good homes for art supplies, children’s clothing, and other household items.  It makes me sad to see things going unused on the shelves.
