Sunday Stuff

Here is Molly's give-away package (large) and a box of the hexagons from my WIPs ready to be mailed tomorrow morning...


A Pile-O-Dogs


The Wooleater I started last night.

I had a few more rounds and two more colors on it by midnight last night, but I frogged it this morning and started over. I just didn't like the way it was looking. So I started over this morning with a two-sizes smaller hook (F) and an adjustment to the placement of some stitches.

It looks much better now, but I'm still unhappy that I didn't buy the Caron Simply Soft last night for this. I wanted to make it in shades of all brown, but all they had in the Caron SS was a dark brown and a bone color. I wish now I had just gone with those two colors and then picked a third color like a rust or maybe a peach to go with them. I think this pattern looks so much better when crocheted with a thinner yarn, like the Caron or a sport-weight. If Hobby Lobby was open today, I'd go up there and exchange all the browns I bought in ILTY and start over. I still may do that tomorrow since I'm going out to the post office anyway. I've wanted to make this blanket for so long that I hate using something I'm not 100% happy with.

I haven't touched the magic balls yet. Those are going in a box in the closet. I'm just not feeling them right now.

And here's the sausage, beans, and rice I made for lunch today. It was so good and really hit the spot with a piece of bread & butter.


I'm about to go relax in a big 'ol bubble bath and drink my Vietnamese Coffee that Barnaby just made. Yum.

  3. Yum..lunch looks good. What's in Vietnamese coffee? I like the pattern you are doing in the brown and bone. I think a 3rd color would make it even more impressive.

  5. I agree, if the wool-eater is for yourself you need to have the colors that make you smile and that you feel comfortable with.

  6. This Rocks. I can't wait to see how your yarn eater turns out. I have been eyeing that pattern for a while. Remember I have only been hooking for about a year, so it's kind of scarey for me.

    So is it really eating the yarn. Like I have to worry that I don't have enough around here... chuckle-chuckle.

    Dinner looks pretty yummie. Gotta love those quick fixers.

    Have a great day.
