Rainbow ripple blanket and UFO’s

Today is my birthday.  When Eddie asked what I wanted, the only thing I could think of was a whole day in bed surrounded by yarn and perhaps a bon bon or two.  Does that sound like a total waste of day?  To me it sounds like heaven and I plan to work on projects, read and relax

This week I am yarning along again with Ginny from Small Things. To keep with my resolution to only use materials from my stash as well as complete my UFO’s (unfinished objects),  I pulled out my crocheted rainbow ripple blanket from last summer and bag of rainbow colored yarns and got back to work on it.  A few rows were ripped out while being stored in a basket under the coffee table so I am now back to where I was when I stored it but hopefully it will go fast.  I hope to have it on the couch by spring but for now the happy colors are helping me through winter.

Yesterday I woke up thinking how cute some knitted spats would look and casted on a new project.  I have changed my mind twice (ripping out the entire project) but now have one almost done so hopefully I can share it with you all next week.  I also need to learn how to write a knitted pattern. I wrote out the pattern as I went along creating the spats and it looks alot like a crochet pattern to me lol.

I cleaned out my closet yesterday (part of Eddie’s honey do list for me) and got rid of lots of stuff though I set aside much more than I should have to upcycle into something else.  It is so hard for me to get rid of clothing because I see it as fabric.  I really need to work through my pile of  refashion projects.  The problem is I will see something and think “I am going to make xyz with this” but then I add it to the pile and when I come back to it, I can’t think of what I saved it for.  Maybe I should write down what it will become on a sticky note and putting it on the item next time.  Then I might change my mind on what to make with it but not forget my initial idea.

I am working on my project for tomorrows stash bash and can’t wait to share it with everyone joining me….won’t you join me too : )  We had lots of fun last week and I got lots of inspiration from everyone who linked up, thank you!

      Ashley, so sorry I never saw your comment. It\’s just cotton yarn bought on a cone but I don\’t recall the name. I bought it so long ago
