...and an ALMOST FO!
Well, I'm working away at my Bleeding Heart Stole and it's almost done! The question is...
or not to dye?!
Then I've been spinning~
This is "Golden Hibiscus" but I refer to it as Spun Sunshine!!
I joined Carole's group--10 minutes a day. I must say this has motivated me to really sit down a little more to my wheel, and I don't just sit for 10 minutes. My time quickly turns into an hour or more!
Then there's this little cutie (the almost FO)!
Hubby had a business trip in Richmond yesterday so I went along, he dropped me off in Carytown where I spent some time in The Yarn Lounge. They had some cute little buttons that I bought for this sweater but my "color judgement" was a little off.
So back to the drawing board and my original idea for buttons.
More on that later...
The trip was short and the ride long and tiring but I did afford me 6 hours of pure, uninterrupted knitting time, something I don't get to do very often!
I'm still trying to find the perfect pattern to enter in Ravelympics, there only 21 days until it begins I'd better get on the ball!
In other news, I'm busting my rear training for my first 5K! The schedule is wearing me out. I still don't know if I'm going to make it...the doubt is setting in! I'm determined that if I have to walk across the finish line that's just the way it's going to be. I'm NOT in this to win, I'm in it to finish!
Today I'm cleaning house from top to bottom in an effort to get things ready for DSD, her hubby & Little Landon to arrive next weekend. I guess I'd better get off the Ole 'Puter and get with it...time's a wastin'!!
Hope you all have a FANTASTIC weekend...
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
