I have made some tremendous progress this past weekend. Look what I've been doing:
|Several finished squares (and the big-ass hook I made them with)|
|Mattress stitching the squares together.|
|One finished strip.|
|Several strips connected using a simple chain stitch.|
I'm nearly done Rob's blanket. I have two more strips that are already chained together waiting to be chained to this pile, and then two more strips' worth of squares at home to sew into strips so I can finish this thing. My mom said I should crochet a border around the whole blanket. Um... no. Maybe when I get a bit better at it.
I have not had a good weekend. Friday afternoon, I developped a migraine that hung on until yesterday afternoon. As a result, I have been tired, cranky and unmotivated. I nearly fell asleep in class last night (to be honest, I think I was nodding off, but after a few minutes, I was able to move around a bit and get myself out of the zone). I'll confess that I haven't been to the gym since last Thursday, but I just found out that the gym is open until 9:30 in the evenings, so I have plans to get there after the kids have gone to bed.
I bought myself another present this weekend...
You know when two people are tired and stressed, they kind of tend to snark at each other for no reason? Yeah... that's been the last couple of days. And I'm not sure if that's related, but I have had THE worst night's sleep and I'm still bloody exhausted (woke up on the dot at 12, 2 and 4, and had a heck of a time getting comfortable at all). Tomorrow, there will be sprout pictures! Two of my flats have sprouted... the third? Nothing. Now I think the third is all parsley, so it may just be a dud package, or they may take longer to germinate, but I was pretty excited to see all the other seeds sprouting this morning. I took the covers off those two flats and we'll see how it goes this week!
Oh, and for the record?
I may be a wee bit addicted to this pattern... (another One-Row Scarf, this one in Red Heart Boutique Changes... gotta love the sparkly bits).
