We'll start with my "Retro-ghan". Remember the three boxes of yarn my mother-in-law sent down with my parents in May? Well, even if you don't, one of the boxes came about half full of ancient yarn....as far as yarn is concerned. I had no idea what I was going to do with all that old yarn and I knew I didn't want to waste it. So, I thought I would make a retro afghan with retro yarn. Be all authentic and stuff. When I started it, I was stoked. Totally loving it. Colors turning out great. Rectangles going relatively fast. Now, that I have been working on it for a week solid and I'm not even half way through the blanket, it has quickly gone from "Woohoo, this rocks!" to "Omg. What did I do?" Don't get me wrong, I still love the colors and the way it's turning out. And I have completed another 3 rows since this picture was taken. But, I'm tired of it and I want it to end. *stomps foot and pouts lip*
When I grow tired of working on the eternal retro-ghan, I find little "boredom buster" projects to work on. This happens to be the one I found this week and I pretty much went ape on it. I've made another 4 of these in a variety of colors since I took this picture 2 days ago. lol. This is a free pattern from Red Heart. It's part of their 12 Patterns of Christmas promo. Trust me, this one is totally worth making. It's a Snowman Mug Cozy for a standard mug size. It closes with a button on the side. Total cuteness. It's going to be part of my Christmas gifting this year. Ok, off with you...Go craft something!
- I am 45. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. In 2015 we added another beautiful young adult to our house, our niece, and she has been a great joy! Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first.
