i'm loving how quick this short week went. it's a little strange to say that because on the one hand i look at little miss and see how she's changing everyday, getting bigger and so much older, and i want time to stand still for a little longer... on the other hand we really look forward to weekends with daddy (he's pretty fun to hang out with ♥).
this weekend is going to be a mixed crafty/mundane housework weekend. unfortunately we have a trip to the laundromat planned. do. not. like. wasting. my. saturday. at. the. laundromat. sigh. but at least i can take my knitting bag with me and get a few rows on the never ending cardigan finished. i have a feeling i will HATE knitting and will not cast on another project until i can finish this cardigan. sigh. again.
i promise that i have more crafty things happening soon but i've been kind of addicted to my hooks lately. once i get a few more monsters and critters who are swimming around in my brain stitched up i'll be working on some st. patty + easter projects that will get me into my paper stash a little bit and back at my sewing machine.
but for now...
this weekend i need to finish up my wiggle monster. he is waiting patiently for his tentacles (the "wiggle" art of the wiggle monster). i stitched up some "long arm" tentacles for him but they looked too bulky and stiff so i want to just go with long "ruffle-like" tentacles. i put him aside for a few days because he's not a huge priority and i have some gifts and other designs that are tugging my focus away.
besides little miss has kind of laid claim to him just as he is...
my other project that is dangerously close to being a FO is a snoopy design for my mom. she loves snoopy and woodstock. i'm really happy with how he's been shaping up but there has definately been a little bit if trial and error.
this snoopy is definately a desk chotchkie and not a baby toy... i am going for a very specific shape and i'm pretty sure that a day or two (or maybe 2 hours) with little miss and snoopy would be headless.
so those are the two projects closest to completion going into this weekend. i'm still hoping to get a project going out of two skeins of grey wool-ease chunky that scream at me every time i walk past my yarnstash shelves. is it too late in the season to make myself a chunky cowl?
wishing everyone a great weekend!
