Ginny. I'm on vacation this week and I ironically that does not mean a lot of knitting. I am happy to report that I'm finally able to knit without my arms hurting and I could not be more happy about that. I think my rest paid off.
I'm working on my first ever felted project. It's some slippers for me using the hopsalot pattern. I actually have some ideas for slipper patterns, but before I burn out from pattern writing, I was craving some no-brainer pattern for vacation that I could easily knit without any paper in front of me.
As for reading, I've being flipping through the high style magazines that my sister brought over to my mom's place. I'm really not in the fashion loop ever, but my sister is. She always looks gorgeous so I feel when I'm around her that I should step it up somehow so I don't look like the frumpy-farmer's-wife sister straight off the pasture. Ironically, I go past the make up tips and shoes and go straight to any ads or write ups on sweaters. I study the pictures and see what's in, and deconstruct each sweater in my head to figure out how it is made, or how I would "improve" it. I'm hopeless, really.
So that's the Yarn Along from my mother's kitchen. My parents just informed me it's time for me to go to bed. ;) Just when you think you're a grown up, married with 4 kids...
