Anyone else wake up to snow today? 😀
Brr, it’s cold. But oh so pretty!
This last week or so, I’ve mostly been working on a corner-to-corner cushion to match my latest blanket – and to use up some of the ends of yarn leftover from that! I’m very pleased with the result, and it’s gone into the front bedroom with the blanket, which is currently being tested, so not too long until I can publish, I hope 🙂
Part of the reason I’m so pleased with a quick using-up-ends project is because…well, I am apparently completely incapable of throwing out yarn. I mean, really. If it’s shorter than the span of my two outstretched arms, then fine – that can go. But anything longer? Nope. Can’t do it. I just can’t.
Yeah, it’s a problem. I recognise that it’s a problem! I envy people who could throw away these little sweetie-sized bits of yarn. But I can’t do it. I just can’t. Ah well. Someday some perfect project will come along and these little bits of yarn will be perfect. Suggestions welcome 😛
I’m still working on my Batik Swirl blanket, too. That’s a nice, portable project, and it’s so simple that I can do it even when I’m really tired – unlike my other current project, which is a design for a set of cushion covers. Which requires quite a lot of brainwork, and last night made me moan to my friends ‘whyyyyy do I do this to myself, designing is haaaaaard’. But it’ll be worth it in the end – it always is.
