So I've been cruising around the blogosphere, looking at everyone's beautiful projects and realized that my space is going to be a bit boring. I'm still working on the same two projects that just drag on and on and on...sigh. I thought about taking some pictures to show them off, but what's the point? They both are repetitive patterns, so all they've done is gotten a bit bigger....yawn. I am forcing myself not to start any new, instant gratification projects and it's been HARD I tell you. Particularly when I see all the gorgeousness out there. I am itching to start on a Citron of my own, but keep pushing it off. My goal is to finish at least one of these - the Herringbone Poncho - while I'm at the beach next week. I don't mind if the Chevron Scarf hangs out for a while because it's a great project to work on when I need mindless knitting...and it's a scarf, so it's a great "on the go" project.
So rather than bore you with the never ending projects, I thought I'd share some new purchases. Whenever I go past a Tuesday Morning store, I have this compulsion to go in and see what kind of books they have because you can get some really good deals and guess what?!?! I scored! Not one, but two really cool books!
patterns. There are several that I can't wait to make and I'm sure that this is not helping my with my current state of boredom with current projects. Not to mention the fact that I haven't crocheted anything in ages and I'm really starting to miss it. By the way, I got this one for $6.00.
accessories and sweaters. I also like the little tidbits and insights they share about their relationship. As part of a mother/daughter relationship, I always find the dynamic of other relationships interesting. This one was only $9.00. Like I said - SCORE!
All in all, not too shabby if I do say so myself! And also so much more interesting than looking at the same boring pictures of the same old thing.
