We were going to go to the Texas State Fair today at 10:00. The weather is still cool and wet and overcast, but that didn't really matter to us. It's not like we were going to be riding rides or anything like that. We were mostly going for the food (hi, Nutrisystem!) and to look at the exhibits and people-watch. But I slept like CRAP last night and tossed and turned and was hot and cold and just generally miserable all night. I hate that. So we decided to go this Friday instead.
I have not been eating my Nutrisystem food the last two weeks or so. I haven't gained weight, and in fact lost another pound, but I do plan on getting back to it. Sometime. No really, I do!
Sorry for the crappy picture below. You'll also notice that the corner is missing. Eli got a hold of it yesterday and tore it off. I was really pissed because this belonged to my grandmother. I fixed it the best I could and will keep it in a protector sheet from now on. Thankfully, he didn't tear off any of the pattern instructions which are on the back.
I started making this blanket yesterday. I thought I'd make it smaller (3 bears wide by 4 bears high) instead of the full size, and I did all the calculating to do that. But when I made the chain, I got scared that it would be too small and look dumb, and I didn't want to do all that work and then find it didn't look right, so i just made it the full size. AND IT'S HUGE!
Now I wish I would have just had the confidence to stick with my plan, but there's no way I'm ripping out all I've done and starting over.
I'm doing mine in I Love This Yarn in Raspberry. It's so soft and squishy. If you want more info about the pattern (ah-hem) just leave a comment with your email address if I don't already have it. Here's a better picture of someone else's finished blanket.
I'm off to crochet and nap the rest of the day. I'm off work all week, by the way! Yay! My aunt will be here tomorrow evening. She'll be here for the next week visiting. Yay again! Bye.
