Stash Confession: I was doing sooooo good! And then three things happened. I baby-sat a dog and her momma tried to pay me, I tried to decline, and she insisted telling me “buy some yarn”. Then, I got an email telling me our weekly knitting location was having a 20% off regular priced yarn sale until Saturday. Hmm. And then, I went to knitting yesterday. Nuff said.
Yardage Knit: 570 yards and 2 skeins
Yardage Bought: 785 yards and 6 skeins
I need to catch up to that bought total! And that’s totally doable as long as I don’t, what, “buy more yarn”!!! You would think I have that ingrained in my head by now?
1. Finish Niece’s Wedding Shawl. DONE!!!!!
2. Work on the Fire Breathing Dragon Shawl I started before starting the NWS. On the lace rows, so close.
3. Charity hats, I mean it! Yeah, not a one, but there’s still many days left in May.
4. 1 free pass to start a new shawl after I finish the NWS. Eager to cast on, still trying to decide which one.
Now to get back to those goals.
Here’s the loot:
On the left: Noro Silk Garden Light for a pair of Fiddlehead Mittens, with something soft and fingering from my stash for the liner. Will likely spit splice out the purple so that all you see are autumn colors. I am hoping the dark green Ella Rae Classic is a good contrast. Was trying to go with a brown, but they just didn’t have the right hue.
On the right: Berroco Jasper, a luscious, soft wool, destined to be a cowl for coziness.
*Mom update. I guess she was still a little loopy from the colonoscopy yesterday when I talked to her, some things didn’t make sense. Today she had a clearer understanding of what she is facing. They did do a biopsy so we are waiting for the results from that. The Dr pretty much suspects it’s cancer, but still no idea what stage. They are doing a CT scan on Monday and will discuss with her the results on June 2nd. Considering the time frame I am hoping they aren’t too worried about the issue. But still, the C word is scary no matter the prognosis.
