I "finished" this blue and white scarf, by which I mean that I discovered that the double layer of yarn hurt my hands to work with, as it is quite stiff. I finished the row I was working on and called it done.
The funny thing is that when I went to photograph it, it is stiff enough that it folded into this awareness ribbon shape. Out of curiosity, I looked up a list of awareness ribbons to see if this scarf would mean anything.
I came to the conclusion that I have my choice of meaning, based on the blue and white ribbons. So this scarf is a combination of blue for human trafficking awareness and white for ending violence against women. Seems appropriate. Now that's decided, I've retired this scarf to the donation box.
I have put Library Kittens away for the time being. I far surpassed my goal of 700 stitches last week.
|At the beginning of last week|
I'm close - oh so close - to the halfway mark for this project, and it still needs a decent amount of back stitching.
Last but not least, here are the finished blocks for the quilt I am working on, meeting my One Monthly Goal. I've decided go ahead and cut some more Dresden plate blades. I think this quilt needs to be bigger and I have a large stack of 6 inch squares to use up.
On a different topic, I've lately been looking around at the craft supplies I have and wondering how long I could go without buying new projects. Not self control wise, but how long would my supply of happy things to do actually last me? I'm predicting it might be years really. I'm thinking of trying an experiment. I can work on anything, with no limitations on what I'm allowed to work on except that there can be no purchases. Eventually I'll have to cave and buy more quilt batting, and garb supplies wouldn't count since I don't stockpile those.
It's nothing I'm committed to yet, just this curiosity that I have bumping around my brain right now.
