Welcome to my usual Sunday Year of Projects post. This week was Thanksgiving here in the states, so much of my time was spent preparing, engaging, and recovering from this meal. This left little room for crafting. I know, I’m sad too.
I’m currently at 88 balls of stash yarn used for the year. 12 more to use by 12/31. Its going to come down to the wire, I think! I didn’t do any sewing this week. Besides the cat bed, no FOs.
HOWEVER!!! I’ve reached the border on the Zinnia monochrome blanket!!
Lastly, my daughter asked me to teacher her how to crochet. She worked on chaining yesterday and today. We have chains of varying length and quality all over the house now. This week we will move onto single crochet. She wants to make amigurumi, and I’m all for it! I think she will be able to construct SOMETHING over Christmas break at the end of next month.
A funny aside, I had to remind her to NOT sleep with her yarn and project in her bed. She had an epic knot that required scissors to remedy this morning. The picture is her watching a movie and crocheting with Telly covered in yarn. He does not seem interested in attacking it so far, fingers crossed.
This week I have plans for a sewing project or two. Finishing up the border on the Zinnia Blanket. Start baking COOKIES! And do up my holiday cards. The kids have their 2nd COVID shot tomorrow, they are excited. Now I am off to hang out with my daughter and crochet together.
