All the Rules

...are broken. lol I said no more yarn, but I have to buy some for my MIL's Bamboozelle. What's this you say? Didn't I already have yarn for said project? what if I did? Upon swatching the gorgeous, yummy yarn, I realized I needed to keep it. It's mine and you can't have any! Errrr....

At any rate, I now need to purchase more bamboo for the project. Oh well. Such is life. I also think that the Classic Elite Bamboo that I used would work better for this project. Gotta love the reasoning, right?

Right now I should be folding and putting away clothes, right now I just don't feel like it. I was folding, cleaning, scrubbing...and so on earlier. Nothing really gets cleaned though. Justin will just come home and throw his dirty clothes on the floor, the kids will throw food all over the kitchen. Oh, not to mention that Matty left dinner on the stove. Didn't bother to put it away, or even put the dishes in the sink. Whatever.

Right now I'm trying to think about what I want to do with that one skein of bamboo that I'm NOT using for my MIL's basket. lol I want to make a shawl with it but I'm afraid I just don't have enough. After looking through patterns, it looks like you really need quite a bit. I could make another one of those drop stitch shrugs, except that wouldn't use enough of the yarn to make me happy. *sigh* Any suggestions? I've got approximately 200yds and it's DK weight.

Oh just for fun, check this hat out! Then...laugh at this:

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
