    It Figures + Urban Sketch

    On July 16th, my morning started early.  I had a lot to do and needed to be out of the house with kids in tow by 8.  Being the morning hater that I am, I woke up especially early (6:15am) and do what most adults do to get themselves perky.  I made a bee line for the beloved coffee pot and with one eye barely open, I moved through the motions of prepping the machine.  When I tried to pour the coffee into the filter, nothing came out of my empty canister.  {{Palm to forehead}} Slight panic ensued and I told Bubba (who was already dressed and ready for the…

    Scrap Blanket

    I finally picked up the scrap throw blanket I started months ago.  Progress was fast at first, but eventually my other interests took hold and my needles took a backseat for months.  I decided to pick them back up last night to finish the yellow ball of yarn.  I only have one more ball of scrap yarn left and it won’t be enough to finish the blanket so I plan to head to my local craft store for new color.  Other than that, I hope to finish this bad boy soon!!  I have a goal peeps and dang-it, I WILL finish this blanket before fall.  (Luckily fall doesn’t hit until…

    Knits

    This darn blanket is taking forever.  I didn’t realize how much monotonous work it entailed.  I have grown so accustomed to quickly producing hats.  Anyway, this blanket is discouraging me a little with how long it takes to knit just one row!  Thank goodness I am fairly stubborn because this blanket will be finished one day!  I’m actually a little further than what is shown in the picture…but still a loooong way from finishing.  As for my reading, I checked out The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen.  So far so good. Linking up with Ginny at  Small Things today for her yarn along. Until next time! -Liz
