This Never Happened Before

I am not sitting on yarn right now, which is a miracle.  I have four different colors at present, three of which are in the immediate vicinity.  There's the rainbow tape-yarn-stuff that is on its way to being crocheted into a shrug ( we're not past the first row yet), the blue scarf that I have restarted 5+ times (I'm double-crocheting this time--maybe I'll like it), and the black-to-white gradient fingerless gloves that I am knitting (which, after being restarted several times as well, is going fairly well now).

It was awful: I walked over to get some coffee, and the black-to-white was somehow looped around my waist.  I dragged it around for a while before noticing.

At least I didn't lose any stitches.  And it didn't get dragged through anything overwhelmingly nasty.

Of the things I have successfully finished, my hat sits upon my head and I gave the two flowers to my neighbors.  A lot of work for not much product at this point.  But hey, I'm a perfectionist and I only started this gig in January.  I'm not doing too badly, methinks.

Well, the main point of this post was to actually start my blog here.  It's been all ready and waiting for a few weeks now, and I have felt badly for it.  So there.  It has a post.


  1. I have a great deal of awe/respect/admiration/curiosity for those who can knit and/or crochet in a useful way. I've taught myself to knit and crochet three or four times before, and then wound of scratching my head and stuffing everything into a box for "later" while I try to decide if knitting is really a good use of my time. That is either laziness or sheer genius talking. ^_^

    Good luck on your future yarn-centric ventures! You're a better homemaker than I. :) :)

  2. Haha, I might say a little more sheer genius: you put it away. I appreciate the good luck . . . but while I might be a better homemaker, I may be a worser student. I have a lot of fun with the stuff, but I'd rather be knitting/crocheting than school, which waxes problematic. Xo
