Miscellany

What a weekend. In good and bad ways.... We had a wonderful time seeing family this weekend - with Mother's Day and my niece's birthday in the same weekend, we all saw plenty of each other! And I ate a lot. I'm serious - a lot. But Dad made blue-cheese-stuffed burgers - need I say more? And then all the birthday cake and cheesecake just sitting around? Man oh man! The worst part of the weekend was I spend it all in an allergy-induced fog. Bluh.

I did get to knit a bit over the weekend. I finished up the body of the Booga Bag and started the I-cord. See?

Sorry about the fuzzy pic. It appears I have a jumpy hand when taking pics with no flash. I only have a couple more feet to knit on the I-cord, and then I can felt it all! I'm going to felt the body of my needle case at the same time.

Then I remembered that the baby hat I need to make is for a baby shower this next weekend. So I started back up with that one and I have a couple inches of it done.

I'm excited about this next weekend - my mommies group is having a yard sale. So if you're in the Richmond area, come and check it out. I'm excited about this for so many reasons.

  • I get to reclaim my guest room from the piles and piles of things that have invaded.
  • I get to shop everyone else's things. I love yard sale shopping! (this may directly conflict with the above reason, but I promise I'll only buy what I need.)
  • I'm taking my knitting with me, so when I'm not shopping or selling, I'll be getting some work done!

So this week I need to figure out which knitting project to take. I might take the cables from my needles case - that will be a small and pretty portable project.

Also up this week - finally getting my tomatoes in the ground. We'll see how that goes... I'm an enthusiastic but very un-experienced gardener.

Your booga bag looks great. Good luck with your gardening!

I love your booga bag! When I made mine I learned 2 things. It's easier to weave the handle in before felting, and I made the handle in 2 pieces because when I cut the first one in half, it had such sharp ends that way.

Sounds like lots of fun stuff going on in your life!

Your booga bag is beautiful :) You are SO ahead of me! I'm glad it is turning out so well, you needed good knitting mojo after the gauge fiascos. Enjoy your yard sale knitting!
