This darn crocheting, well as addictive at it is...might drive me insane before the day is through.
You see no one taught me, I taught myself.
the purple blanket I am trying to make PN. Ughh I have had to pull it out so often now that I am insane...
I was trying to do a simple "ripple" pattern...
I thought it looked easy as pie, but I keep making a mistake someplace. If I could figure it out I would be good.
I have tried reading the darn pattern, and watching a you tube video. (That is not working)
I might be done with the darn blanket by Christmas.
There are so few hours in the day right now, that it is driving me nutzo.
I am going to finish another throw I have going right now, and then go back to this purple blanket.
I need to pick up 3 more skeins of yarn to do so I think... We will see.
I must get some coffee in my body, and get The collective ready for school. No easy task as SR had a 4 day weekend. PN, well she wants to go to work with her Dad....but today is "C" day at school and she gets to wear a cap. that might be enough motivation for her to go!
In other news I tried getting black lined pants the other day at Younkers. There were none to be had. I seriously thought this was a simple request. They had none. I forget the shopping here is not exactly "exotic". Yes I think black lined slacks are a basic, but I guess not.
I am in no mood to shop, especially with children in tow, I just want to go in and get a pair of slacks and leave. The thrill of the "hunt", is not exciting to me at all.
There is a ball at the end of the coming month, and I am unsure if we will go or not. DH and I do not seem excited at the idea......
We will see.
Oh and I did not fix the fireplace, so today I am going to call the fireplace guy, and get him here. I wonder how much a new fan will run. I also guess the battery was the back up for the fireplace, in case there is an outage, and has nothing to do with the fan. Who knew?
