DOH!

I thought it was Wednesday, all day today. I'm all screwy because of going away and working different days of the week now-completely screwy. Not to the point that I don't know where I have to be tomorrow or anything, but as far as trying to get stuff done around here, errands, work, the whole thing-confused sometimes. This was supposed to be a WIP post, so it will be. How about a FO and WIP post?

I finished the two squares to be sent to Priscilla for Blankets for the Gulf and a Fiber Freaks ghan we're donating. I plan to make a few more, but want to get these sent out to her in the next week or so.








I am such a dork and really liked making the squares. (I should clarify-I feel like a dork for being "afraid" of making squares, not actually liking making them) I liked the Butterfly Garden pattern a lot and plan to make a ghan with these, however I will say, mine came out 10" using the H-8 hook. The pattern says "or any hook for gauge" and doesn't list a gauge-next time I'll try an I hook. For this one, I added a few rows of dc edging to it. These were done in Caron Simply Soft Raspberry. Jaye sent me the pattern link and she was right, it's great.

I am almost finished the "secret project", still have to type up the pattern and stuff, but almost done. Want to have this mailed out by next week at the latest.

I also owe PattyPA/Merlot a thank you for sending me a skein of the Bernat Matrix I needed to make the evening bag. Oh and Mimi, I am such a dork and didn't realize the CPAD calendar used two days for the pattern-I had grabbed the first page and put it in the front and last night stumbled across the other page. I wish they would print something like "continued on _______ date" or something. So the pattern they had was correct.

I also have to send a Thank you out to the gals at Good Yarn Karma. Lu (sorry, they deleted the post already and I don't have her link) sent this my way for the bag-before I realized it wasn't enough, but I'll either use it for something else or pass it on. I have a little yarn I want to post up there-spread the good yarn karma around.






I also found a new "DeStash" blog on Wordpress. You have to have a blog to post things on there (not a Wordpress one, but you have to have at least a Wordpress user name), which I conveniently can never remember. You also have to joining the DeStash community on Wordpress. However, you don't have to be a member to purchase anything. I haven't bought anything yet, just peeking.

I have bought some destashed yarn off of Ravelry, but not a lot or anything, just odds and ends.

All for today, have a great night.

I have been thinking it was Wednesday as well.

My days have been totally screwed up since school started. I'm especially bad about thinking Wed. is Thurs. - probably wishful thinking.

Thanks for the new destash heads up. I'll check it out.

You're welcome, Deneen! Like I said, I didn't have anything in mind for that Matrix yarn. (Although now that I see the picture of what you're making, I may have to check it out! What date was it in the calendar?

What?! You mean it's only Tuesday?! Man! It's been a long week already. This always happens the first week of school and we've got to get all adjusted to waking up early. Can't wait until Friday. :o) PS: Love that butterfly square, I've made it a few times, it's one of my favorites.

Deneen said...

Patty-the pattern is September 10 and September 11, 2007 in the CPAD calendar.

Priscilla said...

Both squares look great - I can't wait to see them in person! I really like the butterfly one. I might have to try that myself.

I have the opposite problem when I try to follow a 12" square pattern - I usually have to leave rows off to make it come out 12". But I figure as long as the finished item looks good, it's fine.

April said...

You made it through your squares! I know you weren't looking forward to them. Truth be told, I have never made one myself. Someday!

Can't wait to see the secret project.

You are not a dork for liking to make the squares. They came out great.

naomi said...

The squares look fantastic. I don't mind making squares, for me it's the assembly that I find a real pita.
Oh no, another destash site, just when I thought I had my yarn addiction under control (lol)

Cindy said...

Very nice squares. I love the color.

Thanks for the destash blog. I just went and had fun looking at all of the yarn porn.

Love your squares! Granny Squares are addicting. -Pam

Mimi said...

That's a pretty square...
The Dazzle yarn looks similar to the Matrix...well, at least to me it does ;)

Deneen said...

Mimi, it is exactly the same, just 25 gram ball and twice the price of the Matrix.

Crochet Goddess said...

I love the squares very pretty, great color.

noricum said...
