The next clue was released on the 8th and I have it in the queue and will get to it this week. It is not a big clue but does involve some colorwork - so that will be interesting. Not sure how I like colorwork ...I love the look of it but actually doing it is a bit of a PITA!!! Anyway, we'll see how that turns out. Stay Tuned.
I am still working on the first square in the Great American Aran Afghan book. I had originally started with the Julie B. Levy square but after a few rookie mistakes and some frustration, I frogged it (rip it, rip it) and will start that one again later. In the meantime, I have started the Hanna Burns square and am enjoying how it is turning out. Initially, I was having trouble with the DNA swirl but I seem to have figured it out now. Let me just say - it could have been explained a little better in the pattern book!! I'm not the only one that has had trouble with this one!!
My yarn finally arrived for my Dark and Stormy Cardigan. It is going to be a stretch to get this one done by the end of the month but we'll see. Most of the KALs (Knit-A-Longs) are running until the end of February, so I will still have some time if I miss the first deadline. I'm really loving this tweed yarn. I had a few rows done and decided to frog it and go down a needle size. I just like a tighter fabric on my sweaters and I think this will be a better fit. We'll see. Anyway - just a few rows in so hope to have some more progress next week to show you.
Alright - well other than a big box of yarn arriving this week for my sweater and a few other things - I also managed to snag a few books I've been wanting to add to my stash!!
On another note....who ordered all the freakin' snow???
This is a picture of my deck - I usually clear off the hot tub cover so I can gauge how much snow has fallen. This is what's fallen in the last few days!! ENOUGH already!!! Keep it in the hills - they like it up there!! I've pretty much been a hermit and only go out when I need to - have I mentioned I drive a MINI VAN!!! Not so great in the snow. I'd love a little SUV but alas, Wayne was considering this until he replaced the spark plugs in the van and say now it runs like a brand new vehicle!! UGH!!! Perhaps a little sugar in the gas tank...Mmmm? Sheesh!!
In other news, Brayden was the lucky recipient of one of these this week:
Anyway - I think that's about it for this week. Hope y'all have a great week ahead. Take some time to create something FUN!! :)
