Monday Miscellany

I almost forgot to post today! I was getting ready to go brush my teeth (despite the fact that some important game is in progress - Ducks, Bucks?) when I remembered that I hadn't written anything today.

Well, actually, I was playing Hearts (badly) on my phone. It's my latest obsession. I am really not very good at it. I think playing is a way to punish myself for something. I wish I'd send myself to bed without dinner instead!

I'm somewhat determined to try to walk outside tomorrow. It's a bit drier now & shouldn't be THAT slippery. If I do, I'll take some pictures. Right now it's a balmy 25 degrees, so we'll see.

My latest crochet project. I'm going to participate in an Afghan Crochet Along this year - we'll get a new square every two weeks. When I first started teaching myself to crochet, in my inexperience, I bought skeins of alpaca yarn (pricey!) & started making granny squares. I don't really know why - a vague idea of a blanket in the future? Anyway, I decided to use this same yarn for this project. That way I can incorporate the simple squares I've already made and make a bigger blanket. Eventually. This square was quite worky - but fun too. I enjoyed the challenge. This one is 12 inches square.

Still in progress

  1. I'm glad you came up with a way to use the squares! Are you trying to post daily now? Maybe you said that before and I missed it...anyway, I hope you get out to walk. :)

  2. I love Hearts and I'm delighted that it is electronic because I become a terrible person when I play with other people. I cannot stand if they make a stupid pass or play. So it's much safer to play on my tablet. No hurt feelings. And no anger.

    Love the squares. Great incentive to make an afghan.

  4. I'm always amazed by people who can make something from precious little, but i doubt I'd have the patience or hand coordination to create something like this,

  5. When it comes to knitting, sewing, crocheting, and the like, I have two left hands. It really drove my mother mad. She was afraid that without those "womanly skills" I'd never find a husband. I surprised her...I found two!

    Walking in the cold should inspire you to walk quickly, shouldn't it?

  6. Well folks, I might be thwarted in my plan because that yarn might be discontinued. Stay tuned!

    And yes I am trying to post every day - we'll see how long that lasts! I didn't announce it because I wasn't sure I'd really do it.

    See today's post re: walking fast - not so much :)

  7. They'd make nice trivets for the kitchen. Except they'd probably scorch. Never mind.
