Does he just get cuter and cuter or what??? And Jackson is coming here, yes here, for his baby blessing- they will arrive on Sept 23rd and grandma can't wait!
Not a lot of time to update in here, but I do want to as often as I can.
I woke up with a terrible migraine this morning at about 3 or 4 am. I hurt so bad I couldn't see the clock. I managed to get an Excedrine down though. (note to self-- don't take Excedrine on an empty stomach in the middle of the night!) At about 5 am I could hear my daughter out in the hall and, I asked her to help me get out to the couch. She is my 'nurse' when I am not well... she just really comforts me, having her near.
The pain went away at about 6 am, but the nausea has remained all day. Made for a long morning in adult religion class and at work, but I did it!
I am starting this 'Stash Bashin' thing till Christmas! No more yarn purchases till Christmas, or until I use up a dozen skeins-- that's in case I have not used them up before Christmas.
I really have so much yarn. I see it on sale, or people give me their surplus. And it's got to be made into warm things for people in need, not lining my closet. I think I have this hang up since money has been tight since we we got married 29 years ago, that I might run out and not have ANY to relax and knit with. It's like a security blanket, but it isn't helping people as it should be. So time to make a serious dent and 12 skein's isn't going to do it! Heck, I have mailed out 4 pretty big boxes of yarn to contest winners and people in need of yarn, this summer, and more has been sent to me! Wish I could mail out cash and have it work that way!! However...
So, if anyone else wants to join me in bashin' their stash, please do, lets get those warm hats, mittens, scarves, slippers, booties, blankets, etc started!
Before we know it, people will be very cold and will need those items.
I also posted a couple of new patterns on my site.
One is a 3-6 mth baby jacket
LDS Humanitarian as well as many other agencies, shelters, etc can use warm sweater/jackets for little ones. I am thinking this one can be made larger by adding a couple of rounds to the hexagon too.
And I also made a pattern for a new scarf. This one is to commemorate the Special Olympics Winter Games.
They need 5,000 scarves in these 2 yarns by Jan 1st. The contestants will each be given one to wear.
The 2 colors needed are Red Heart delft blue (885) and white (311) Well, you can see the yarn needed, my pattern, a mailing address, and more info, on THIS PAGE.
You can use any pattern you wish, I just decided I wanted to get in on the act by creating my own pattern. :)
HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE!
