Complete and delivered! I’m so thrilled with how he turned out!
The minion was a big hit on Easter Sunday! He was Ken and my birthday present for mom. My brothers decided it would be best to pair him with a Despicable Me popcorn bucket from Hollywood Theater. Turned out, the little guy fit perfectly!
It’s good to have another project wrapped up and done, although I tried to cast on a new project again yesterday. I was stressed out, and I’ve found that when I am feeling a little stress, I want to cast something new on. I don’t want to work on any projects I have going. It has to be completely new. I talked myself out of it in the end. I have way too many things going on right now as it is.
1. Spinning Sea Foam Fiber
2. Socks for dad (Ken’s are now done!)
3. Ken’s sweater
4. Spinning Merino/Bamboo/Silk Blend Fiber
5. Hexipuffs (the eternal project)
6. Test knit hat due on the 17th
7. Linen Stitch Scarf
I think that’s a bit much! Ken’s sweater is on temporary pause. I messed up on it a few weeks ago but didn’t write down what happened. I’m probably going to have to undo the row I’m on and start again. Dad’s socks are reaching the halfway point. I started on Monday and for some reason kept working on them when I got home (they’re supposed to be my lunch and walk home socks), so I’m at the leg now. I finally got some more spinning done last night on the sea foam fiber. I love it. I’ve found spinning really has become my ultimate de-stresser.
Add on top of that the complete excitement about DFW Fiber Fest on Saturday! There are now only 3 days left! I can’t wait. This is going to be so much fun. I’ve saved up some money so I can go a little crazy, but hopefully not too crazy. I know what I want. I want some sock yarn and some spinning fiber. Ken thinks I should look at spinning wheels while we’re there, but I don’t think he knows quite how much those cost. I want one really badly, but we’ve got some major items we’re saving up for right now that take precedence. Plus, I’m quite happy with my spindles.
I hate to wish my life away, but I can’t wait until Saturday!
Happy Wednesday! What projects are you working on?
