so much to do...
are you excited about having an extra day off this weekend? i know i am. i have grand ideas of sipping iced tea and relaxing. but you know what? i have way too much to do. i have two baby shower invitations that have to be designed, printed and mailed out. i also have to clean this apartment up a little bit and do laundry. in anticipation of moving sometime this summer, i am having a garage sale at a family friends next weekend. that means major cleaning out of the junkage and pricing all sorts of shabby chic decor that will no longer be part of my new design vision :) i live in a mere 700 sq ft, but i packed this place like you wouldn't believe! it is time to start fresh!
speaking of fresh, isn't my finished scarf great? i really enjoyed this pattern. i can't for the life of me remember the yarn and i threw the labels away. it was self striping though. it had 4 colors, 2 shiny and 2 matte. very interesting ribbon yarn.
i do plan on dedicating time this weekend to my new project. no matter what it takes, at some point i will relax and work on these. the cascade fixation was hard to get used to (for some reason i kept thinking to myself (in a british accent) "mind the stretch now amy", do you know what movie i was thinking of?). but now that i am several rows in, my tension seems good.
now as for the cotton ease stash, i bought 2 packs of candy blue, 3 packs of pistachio, 1 pack of bubble gum and 1 pack of popsicle blue. each pack is 3 skeins. it was actually everything they had in stock.
ok, have a great weekend everyone!
