We are having some friends over tonight – I’m really looking forward to it as I haven’t seen most of them for at least a year. But what a drag it is getting ready for a party! We went grocery shopping yesterday, and last night I made a few dishes and desserts. Today I need to tidy up the house (and do laundry so I have something to wear), and make a few more dishes. And what am I doing?
Why I’m winding yarn for a new project! How about Swallowtail Shawl in cashmere? This is Just Our Yarn Myne – 500 yards of cashmere-y goodness. I bought it at Maryland last May for just this shawl. Isn’t it pretty? And I think I need to do a small shawl to practice for bigger ones….and it is my Mother’s birthday in a few weeks – what do you think? Possible to do this shawl by mid-January?
I was looking at Year of Lace this morning – so tempting. But $250 is so much money and I have a lot of laceweight in the stash already. And I didn’t really like being in the STR sock club – I got too much yarn that I don’t really like and I didn’t use one skein or pattern. What is it about these clubs that make you want to join though? Did you join any clubs for next year?
Well, I suppose I should go clean a bathroom (or cast on for a shawl….)….have a great Friday!
