Why does having family have to include drama? I love my family but I would be a lot happier (and less worried) if everyone was settled, happy and taken care of. I won’t get into all the details now but it just ruined my day…

I don’t have ay progress on the Big Bad Baby Blanket. I have not touched it since the last post. I WILL have it done by Monday though. That’s a promise. I like it but I want it done now! I am about to start the border tonight so I can definitely have it done.

Since I have no progress on the blanket I will update you on the never-ending Scrappy Hat. Instead of 65% done I am now back to 50% done. I stopped measuring it in the hopes that it would grow faster that way. I have been knitting on it when I don’t feel like taking a sock with me. The blanket has not gotten too big for car knitting so it’s either the hat of the sock. I measured it this morning since it looks to have grown a bit. It is officially 11 inches. I thought that I have to be close to being done. Nope.

The pattern says 21 inches…I am halfway again. I am starting to not like this hat. I am seriously thinking of frogging it…but the thought of all the time I put into it. I have 2 skeins of the Kona Bay Wool that I am using. I really don’t want to break into the other skein though. I was hoping to use it for Calorimetry for a friend of mine. What to do…What to do… The top picture is the last progress picture I took and the bottom is from this morning. It’s hard to tell unless you look at them together. :- )

What would you do??

We still have nothing planned for the weekend…Good! I want to knit a lot, sew a little and maybe bake. Well maybe not bake, I wouldn’t want the hubby to roast in the August heat.

Have a Good Weekend!

Ugh... life just wouldn't possibly be interesting enough without a little family drama, now would it?

You know, for a long time I couldn't bear to frog ANYTHING I knit, no matter how bad it was, or how much I knew that I wouldn't finish it, or no matter how much I knew I wouldn't ever use it or give it away once it was done. Then I realized how much yarn was just lying around being wasted, and that made it a heck of a lot easier... now that rrriiiipppp sound is one of my favorites.

Can't wait to see you in a few weeks. Yay fiber in!!
