Thursday Bullets

Hello There,

Today I'm going to do some random bullet points for you.
  • I ran out of yarn for the Forest Friends Blanket.
  • Don't worry though, I'm going to buy more tomorrow.
  • In the meantime, I cast on a pair of socks for my Dad's birthday present.  (way to get a head start! yay!)
  • But the yarn was flashing something awful so I ripped it out.  (boo for flashing!)
  • Good news though, I'm going to buy him some new yarn tomorrow.
  • Tomorrow is hard to wait for sometimes.
  • Now I'm not sure what to work on....
  • I took out the Granny Stripes and did a few rows this morning - the colours make me happy.
  • I really need to knit a collar on the Baby Surprise Jacket so it will be finished, but first I need to sew up the seams, which I'm avoiding.
  • Oh wait, did I forget to mention that I knitted a BSJ? 
  • I think there may be a few more things I've forgotten to mention, but I can't remember them all right now.
  • Maybe I need more coffee....
  • I also think I need to mop my floors, but I don't want to do that now. 
  • I really need to find something to work on to keep me busy before I have to resort to cleaning for entertainment. 
  • I think I should go take a look in my nicely organized box of WIPs.......yes, I did do some yarn organizing this week and I have to say I feel much better now that I know where things are!! 
  • I'm going to do some more, but first I need to get some Rubbermaid containers.
  • Which I will be doing tomorrow.
  • Did I mention how hard it can be to wait for tomorrow sometimes? 
  • I hope you are all having a wonderful day!
  • It's very windy here, but the sun is shining so I'm not complaining.
  • I think I need to go work on something now as I can't stop looking at the floors....
Much Love, xx

P.S. I forgot to mention that my room is finally clean!!  Well....almost.


  1. You are so funny! Yes, sometimes tomorrow is waaay too long away.
    I love entertaining also, but hate having to clean for company.
    What do you mean by "flashing"?

  2. Hi Stef,
    Flashing is when a yarn pools a lot in one specific area and then another colour pools in the same way in a different area and the overall look of the knitted fabric resembles lighting bolts. It can look pretty and be a design element, but on these socks it just looked plain bad. These will be my Dad's first pair of socks that I've knit for him so I want them to be special. If they were just for myself I would have probably knit on and lived with it. I hope that makes some sense! lol

  3. Totally does! I learned something new!
