Why I don't have hobbies [Jul. 8th, 2007|12:34 pm]

And the Raven, never flitting, still is knitting, still is knitting...

Oops, sorry. Getting my posts mixed up. 

I'm still knitting, which is why I'm not posting. Because, true to form, less than a week after taking up a new hobby, I have made two more trips to the store for yarn/needles/hooks, have finished three scarves, and am two-thirds through a baby blanket for a friend who is having a baby shower on Wednesday.

Yes, this is what I do. Decide on Saturday morning that it would be really cool to make a blanket to give to someone on Wednesday, when I have plans for the weekend and have to work Monday and Tuesday.

I have to remember how to crochet, since I want to do a border. Wish me luck.

I haven't found a yarn store - I'm just going to Hobby Lobby. They don't have any wool (which is just as well since I'm allergic to wool)but they do have some cotton I might try later.

Right now I'm using an acrylic/nylon blend that's really, really soft and "furry". It was what was on sale.

To prove I am a loyal reader, I know which post you got it "mixed up with." lol -

I'm impressed! I never got the knitting thing down, but I did crochet "some" back in the day.

Looking forward to the pictures. (you are going to share photos with us, aren't you?)

Pictures? That all depends on how it turns out!

Knit, knit, knit! If you're two-thirds through, it sounds like you will definitely get it finished.

I used to do that with cross stitch - I've had to stay up late into the night working!

I was up at 5:30 this morning knitting. How sick is that?

Hey, no fair, you can knit!

Really loved that pic of you and the BF. Now *that* is a scarf.

Makes me want to round up my many balls of yarn and knit something cool. Maybe a Harry Potter scarf. Hmmmm. If I start now, maybe K can wear it for Halloween...
