things have been crazy ever since i got back to school. in the first week back, seemingly everything that could go wrong did. in the last two weeks, classes started up, professors loaded us up with projects and every accounting firm around has wanted to feed us and talk to us and make us want to work for them. it’s all very tiring, really. but enough about why i’ve neglected the blog!
a few weeks ago, i finished up the bathmat that i’d been working on. using most of my one-pound cotton mill-ends also helped me finally get my whole stash (and needles and supplies) in one rubbermaid tub again, which is very exciting!
the bathmat was knit using two strands of dishcloth cotton held together worked on size 10.5 needles from this pattern. i’ve been using it in our dorm bathroom ever since i finished the crochet edging and it works great (and adds much needed color!). very nice and squishy.
also, i knit my square for the charity blanket swap:
my square is the blue striped one in the bottom right corner. i used the new vanna’s choice acrylic yarn from lion brand and i liked it pretty well, as far as acrylics go. for more details about my square and the project, visit the blanket swap blog.
i’ve also been doing the embroidery lessons over at crafty daisies. each week you learn some new embroidery stitches and then do a little project. i’m really enjoying it…. gives me a chance to use up some of my embroidery floss, too! i even figured out how to do french knots (finally!)!
and that’s about all for now! hope you have a great weekend!
