Last week I had a couple of VERY quiet days when the kids went camping with their Grandparents. Much fun was had by all, and my kids were happy to be back home. Because apparently they missed us, even though we won’t let them eat chocolate at breakfast like my parents did. Aside: my parents NEVER EVER EVER let me have chocolate at breakfast, and rarely even purchased sweetened breakfast cereals.
As promises, some pictures of what my closet currently looks like. The sliding mirror doors are difficult to keep fingerprints off of and make accessing more than half of each side of the closet impossible. However, at this point, they are not broken, are functional enough, and therefore have not been replaced; much like the ceiling fan. Our 40 year old house also has all the original flat slab hollowcore builder’s grade doors. When we replace them, the closet doors will likely get a refresh too. But again, not a pressing project. I did FINALLY break down and get some cellular blinds for behind my curtains, I’m kicking myself for waiting so long. The windows are each just under 48″ wide, so I needed to get two shades. We went with the Levolor Light Filtering Cellular shades. We have them in 3 of the front facing rooms, and really like them.
Just in case you’re wondering, my spouse’s clothes are all on a different floor- he gets up for work at 3am and wants to be courteous and not wake me. Yes, I also own an obscene amount of hoodies and most of my clothing items are black.
Now for Yarn-y stuff!
I found a forgotten WIP when I was putting all my yarn away. It was from 2019 when I was teaching a block-a-month crochet along class. 12 classes each yielding a different block of approx. 12″x12″. The 13th class in the series was stitching up the blanket. I conducted the final knit class, but the crochet class never occurred. Because the only people who attended all 12 crochet block classes ALSO attended all of the KNIT block classes. We sewed them all together, so really it was the same class. I thought I would sew up the crochet blocks…. and didn’t. Fast forward to today (literally), I added in a few of the knit ones I did in early 2020. I have 3 more blocks to sew on, and I’m going to add a border. The class did NOT call for a border, however I think it looks unfinished and haphazard without one. Guessed finished size: 48″x50″.
I got my cream yarn for the hobbit door throw. Squaring the circle might not happen, I am considering alternative shapes for the finished product. THIS IS NOT ADMITTING DEFEAT.
Until We Win: Fight is off the needles and awaiting a blocking bath. I bound off Saturday morning. A nice, aggressive blocking will really make this project shine.
