This Week in Bizzy's World...

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 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!
