I’m rather surprised at how little patience I’ve had waiting for the online yarn order to arrive. Yesterday, when no package was delivered, I wanted to run down the street after the mail truck and ask the carrier to check one more time to be sure he hadn’t overlooked my package. Now don’t worry; I wouldn’t have done it. But the fact that I even had the thought was a little bothersome. I love new yarn and projects, but at somewhere recently I’ve reached a whole new level of “interest”. Hmmmm 😉
So, I’ve turned back to new and old projects while I wait.
Had DH try on the pullover last night for a size check. He’s please so far. I’m wondering if it will stretch out some. Just a bit more and it will be finished.
Made a trip to the craft store and picked up a few things. I didn’t spend near the amount of time I wanted. DH dropped me off and went to the doctor for his checkup. They took him in early. I guess they didn’t realize I was counting on a longer wait. Anyway, I picked up a few odds and ends, some to go along with part of my September Plan.
• I found the cutest little charms that say “made with love” to string with beads and attach to Christmas gifts.
• The wooden upholstery button has made a great closure on my favorite knitting bag. This is the Windmill Bag by Danielle LaFramboise, finished last May. The yarn is cotton I picked up last spring on a trip to MO (Cabin Fever Cotton Tweed DK), really soft and easy to work with. More details are here on Ravelry.
• The last little purchase is a needlepoint, zippered case. One of my September goals was to start back up on stitching. I used to do a lot of cross stitch years ago. I started on the case last night and had a hard time putting it down. I’d forgotten how much I enjoy stitching.
Took the dog for a walk to the park after lunch. It’s just beautiful outside today.
Hope you’re having a great day too!
