I didn’t get a lot done last night, but I did sit down to my stash and figure out what yarn I want to use on my Android project. This is probably the most thinking I’ve done when it came to colour. I have a few different neon-ish greens. One is cotton, one acrylic, and one actual wool.
I think I’ve decided on the Impeccable yarn from Loops & Threads in the colour Grass as it’s more Android-y than my other options. The green is fairly vibrant, which I really like. That, and I’m a bit tired of the cotton, and I think I’m keeping the wool for another project. I’m not overly fond of acrylic, but I have such a large stash of acrylic yarn (almost all “inherited” from a knitter turned weaver) that it seems a shame not to use it up on fun projects like this.
I didn’t get any knitting done yesterday, though, but it was still a pretty good day. A friend came over and hung out and then when husband came home from work, we all had spaghetti together. We actually ate at the table! Usually, the table is just a backdrop for photos. We almost never use it when eating dinner.
I have a feeling this just isn’t going to be a very crafty week overall. I’m hoping to get started on the Android after work this evening. Tomorrow, though, my husband, my friend, and I will be travelling down to Austin to see Snow Patrol. (Technically, I wanted to go to see Ed Sheeran for my birthday, but he’s cancelled and won’t be there anymore. Gary Go will be there instead; needless to say, I was really bummed.) I might bring knitting for in the car just to keep busy. It’s not a long trip, but traffic can be annoying.
Then, Friday is Employee Awards Day! In a way, I’m kind of excited. I don’t do sports (at all), so I won’t participate there. I might be able to find a little nook to tuck myself into to knit during a game of Bingo or during a film. The email said there would be a movie shown, but I have no idea what one, where, or when. Still, it should be a lovely day.
All of that’s not quite adding up to a fully crafty week, but maybe more on the weekend.
Ooh! Have a great time seeing Snow Patrol!
I have the worst time with my stash. Sometimes I bought yarn because it’s so pretty or so soft or whatever, but if I don’t have a project immediately in mind, it sits. Or I find a great project for it, but I didn’t get enough and it’s been too long to find the same dye lot. I’m trying to work through my stash right now (for the most part — I still slip up and the occasional hank of yarn follows me home). After I get a handle on what I already have, I’m going to try to be disciplined and only buy yarn with a project in mind. Yeah…. we’ll see how that goes.
That happens to me all the time! I’ll see something pretty or really soft, or I have some fun yarn that I just wanted to try, like my Mirasol K’acha yarn that I bought mostly because it was on sale. There’s not enough to do much with it, and it’s too late to go back for more.
I’m SOOOO excited for your new project!! Can’t wait to see the finished product!! GOOD LUCK! 😀 😀 😀
