My Goompa's Star Lap Blanket :) Happy 95th Birthday on the 4th of July, Goompa!
It's already July 12, and I've posted a total of once this month! Guess I'd better get a move on. Today's a good posting day b/c it is yucky and rainy, though the lightning show was great :) My puppy woke us up at 04:30 by jumping onto the foot of the bed due to his fear of the thunder....
I am finding I have to be in the right mood to knit lace. If I am at all grouchy, forget it! I have to put it down before I throw it through the drywall...But, I am getting ready to start my Moderne Log Cabin for a Christmas gift, so that should give me miles of soothing, brainless garterstitch :D
I have yet to pick up the Jaywalkers again. I tossed them aside while in Maui, and have not touched them since. They've even come partially off the needles in the bottom of my knitting bag, but I haven't cared until now. I think I might pick those back up this weekend.
We have a niece's birthday party today. Still have to get a gift. She requested a star blanket from me last weekend when she saw Goompa's birthday blankie (her baby bro was the recipient of the rainbow star blankie in April). She requested a star in a circle (hmmmmmm) and her color choices are blue, orange, yellow and red. Hmmmm. Anyway, there was no way I was gonna do another marathon blankie in a week, so I decided to make her one for Christmas. I'll have to get the other blankies on my list finished first!
My wonky square experiment. Not too sure I like it. Though the photo looks better than real life! I took it off the circular needles to really look at it. I think I'll let it sit for a while.
My friend invited me over to knit outdoors tomorrow: she has two hammocks in the shade of her back yard. I may just take her up on that--I'll have to find a suitable snack to bring with. Sounds like a rough day, doesn't it?! ;) But today is all about running errands: groceries, write some bills, pick up dry-cleaning, WEED THE PATIO, beauty appts, etc. Yep, I'm gonna be busy today.
Hope everyone has a most productive weekend! Ciao....
