This weekend, I unearthed a couple of mama-jo huge skeins of sock yarn. After the recent rash of socks, fuzzyfeet, and clogs, the last thing I want to start is a pair of socks. They are trekking xxl, in a very "Sesame Street" colorway. So, I've decided to make an entrelac scarf with it.
Also I dug into my box of baby yarn and yarn-destined-to-be-baby-items for the bahzillion new and soon-to-be moms I know, and pulled out some ecru sugar ' n cream. I thought I would make a teddy bear. But I soon came to a realization that I cannot find a teddy pattern that I like and does not require me to go buy a new book.
So, I'm winging it. If it comes out cute, I'll write out the pattern and post it on my free patterns page.
I have gotten very little work done on Nate's vest, due to the fact that I don't want him to see it until it's done.
I need to work on Teegan's slippers so I can get that stuff sent along it's merry way, but I refer you to the first paragraph.
I haven't really done much of anything this weekend. We spent Saturday evening at my Mom's to celebrate my Stepfather, and Brother's birthday. (Just want to clear up that we celebrated TWO people's birthdays. Don't want you all to get the wrong impression there.)
I mostly pouted this weekend as I battled my severe case of pet envy. Two years ago, I adopted a really wonderful lab mix from the county pound. she got loose a year ago and was hit on the highway, just south of of. Jess still asks for her.
Anyway, In light of Ribby's recent passing, and visiting my brother and his menagerie*, I've had pets on the brain.
Consequently, my pouting did nothing to sway Nate, who I have been calling the "pet-nazi".
I think Jess needs a pet. Of cours,e I cannot remember a time when I was growing up, that we did not have a pet. Nate's argument is that we have pets. (We have two outdoor cats. They are outdoor cats, because I am allergic.) I tell him although I love the cats, they do not count. We are now at a stalemate.
*I'm not kidding. they have a beagle, a shepard husky mix, a cat, a guinea pig, a turtle, and an undisclosed number of aquatic creatures.*
