Project on the Hook
So, I have a project on the hook right now. It's part of my destash the yarn project list. It started out to be a baby blanket, but then I decided I wanted to make it into a lapghan (for someone who sits in a wheelchair). I believe I have *just* enough yarn to finish it off. I had originally bought this boucle yarn to use specifically for myself (isn't that how it always goes), but everytime I started a project, I didn't like it and ripped it out, started a new one, didn't like it and ripped it out. The only problem with that is boucle is not a very forgiving kind of yarn, so I wasted some yardage. :o(
What I really want to do is to get started on some of my other yarn projects that I have the yarn just sitting there waiting on me...calling my name ever so gently. I have plans to make a grey mohair shawl. Oh I can hardly wait, I'm so excited.
I also picked up some gorgeous yarn that is screaming little girl blanket. I'm trying to decide in my mind what kind of pattern I want to use for it, because I have the multi color, a pink and cream and I really would love for it too be some little lady's beloved "blankie".
But then that doesn't even begin to decribe some of the other projects I want to begin as well. I picked up some gorgeous fabric to make dog harnesses. I know my little Isabella needs (not really, she has more than enough) a new one. Not to mention the fabulous new beads I've discovered that are patiently waiting on me to give them some design and wire.
Oh how I wish there was more hours in the day. :o) Until then Happy Hooking Everybody!
