so much to finish!
I have an entire paper box filled to the brim with projects not for me that I must finish before october (crafty bastards!)... sewing handles on, felting, weaving ends in. All take about 5 minutes or so, but I keep putting them off. and I keep starting and finding more! Agh! I will *try* to ignore the two books
I ust ordered when they arrive..
So what am I doing instead? Knitting socks out of pretty yarn (that's unfortunately not our yarn, which I totally wanna play with already..). This is koigu.
Along with its accompanying scrap of sandpaper, which is necessary because those dpns SUCK! and keep splintering the slightest bit at the tips. Grrr. I thought I'd be all good and buy handmade needles- these are birch. I think I like the bamboo ones better- clover, maybe? They are also much better with the slipping factor.. these, I have to jerk all the stitches about. boo. The first sock is on my Clover 2's, but I'm stuck at the heel on them. Hmph. At least both socks will be finished relatively at the same time, though. no second sock syndrome
This is perhaps the dorkiest sand toy ever:
However, better than the "future rocket scientist" t-shirts I have seen... and we are going to the beach in a couple weeks! Yay NASA!
