Diving for Mindfulness
This is why I need to exercise stash mindfulness and look before I buy. I went diving through most of my stash, and here's what I came up with for dishcloth cotton yarn.
Yipes! I do live in fear of someone calling Hoarders on me.
While I have way over enough cotton for the Potholder swap and for gifts, I did need some more solid colors, so now I could go out and shop with confidence.
Careful readers will note that I already had enough yellow, but now the right yellow. By nature, I'm not a perfectionist, but somethimes I get picky.
By the way, do you like the bag? My Larger Than Life Bag, so lovingly lined by my knitsib, Pam, is still a workhorse.
Getting it Done
I wanted to get Mauve done this weekend, but after an unseasonably cold winter so far, it was in the 70's and sunny in the Holy City and one of my favorite places to have lunch had its grand opening this weekend in my part of town.
Got involved in catching up on Dowtown Abbey. I'm such a sucker for stuff like that.
I really needed to catch up on some sleep too. My sleep cycles have been out of whack lately.
Well, I did get a little done on Mauve. Almost all of the squares are sewn together, and I have only four more to crochet and attach before crocheting the waistband.
I also started the potholders.
I will make two of each. One for the swap and the other for someone else. I have someone in mind for the Cupcake Potholder. The one in the greens is the Scalloped Potholder. I do need to get the second side made.
A friend posted this song on Facebook the other day. I hadn't heard it in years, and I love Lennon's fly '70's fashion.
I could go on about being peeved about not getting Mauve done when I thought she should be, but whatever gets me through it will be all right. I had a lovely weekend and that's what counts.
Anyway, tomorrow is a day to celebrate! Hope you'll be here!
