Here I am, stuck in the middle of the week. Here I am, stuck in the middle of new evaluations and paperwork. And here I am stuck in the middle of you........
The Crazy Granny Square blanket is almost at the exact halfway point. After I finish this last green circle I will be halfway done with the blanket, well with the exception of the border that is.
Halfway through this blanket means I have used 1300 yards of yarn already. Crochet is a huge yarn suck isn't it? I still like this project, it is so fast to make. Well fast if you consider I have been working on it since January 1.
And here I am, stuck in the middle of the Lady Kina. I have at least 250 yards more to knit on this baby and then I will be out of yarn. There are lots of ends to sew in on this sweater as this Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo yarn comes in 104 yard balls, so I seem to be finishing them up at a rapid rate. Gosh this picture is horrible, the color is more gold, this photo is so washed out.
So I am feeling a bit stuck, stuck with work, stuck with projects and frankly stuck on that darn song by The Jeff Healy Band, not even a band I like listening to.
Lucky for me there are friends that come to the rescue. In the mail yesterday I received two surprises. This beautiful star was made by my dear friend Taci. Isn't it beautiful?
Although I think this beautiful star is meant for my Christmas tree I am going to hang it in my craft room/studio. Taci is the best, and so, so sweet and caring. I am going to invite you to stop by her blog and see her latest project. Taci is from Brazil and when she visits her native land she takes loads and loads of things for children in need. This year she is planning on taking 200 hats for babies and toddlers. Please pop in and see if you can help her in her quest to help those babies stay warm and healthy. Taci provides a link for a knit and a crochet pattern for a simple hat, but you can make whatever pattern you want and send it right to her. I plan on knitting a few to send, won't you?
Another surprise was from Becky who so graciously sent me this beautiful calendar. Becky is a beautiful photographer and writes a very wonderful blog. She joined the annual ladies lunch with Teresa, Gracie, Betsy and Taci, you know the lunch we all want to join in, too.
Hope you are not feeling all that stuck right now. Have a great week.
