Buried in Yarn

26 Aug

I was looking through my pics from last month to see if there was anything I forgot to post. Here is what I came up with:It’s a blanket I started for a baby gift, but I didn’t get it finished in time. Sooo, it goes on the pile for blankets to be donated. I really am going to donate the blankets. I have two of them ready to go, I just need to make sure the drop-off spot near me is still a drop-off spot before I lug them out in this heat. By lugging, I mean taking them on a bus for an hour, carrying them around classes, then back on the bus before I can drop them off. So, hence the reason why they are still in my room. But enough about my procrastination.

I truly am buried in yarn. I have been trying so hard to work on the forlorn projects stashed around the “yarn area” in my room. Unfortunately, school has started again, so most of my current projects are not portable. Which means that I have had to start new projects just to take with me while I’m away at classes. So far, I’ve started a new blanket project of granny-style squares that are easy to carry around and work on in between classes. I also have bought some wonderful Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky, a yummy blend of thick wool and acrylic, in two shades of green for a cabled blanket that I will be starting soon. By soon I mean as long as I can stand not starting the project before I push away the guilt of all the other unworked projects and start it anyway. Here’s a picture of what the afghan will look like:Isn’t it pretty? I just love this pattern, which I found out is made in strips, then sewn together. This fact makes it even better for carrying around, which I plan on doing in a few weeks. I can’t wait to get my fingers through the yarn and start working it. Next to wool, Lion Brand Wool-Ease is wonderful yarn and one of my favorite favorites.

I’m buried in yarn and do NOT need rescuing.
