â€¢ The Clementine Shawl still awaits grafting.
â€¢ The top-secret gift project is some edging and two side seams from completion (and has been at this point for far too long now).
â€¢ I haven’t worked on the Origami Cardi in weeks.
â€¢ I have been playing with some simple design ideas using dishcloth cotton.
â€¢ I’m also playing with a more complicated idea that sort of answers the question “what would happen if a dishcloth went on growth hormone?”
â€¢ I’m signed up for Dishrag Tag and Mystery Stole 3.
â€¢ And because that isn’t enough to do, yesterday I started a scarf just so I could see how one of the hand-dyed skeins from Tall Grass Yarns works up. (And how does it look?: pretty and bright and quite nice. Pic this weekend, along with pattern info.)
â€¢ I have discarded all the obscure foodstuffs that I didn’t get bagged before the termite tenting, but now I need to wash out the empty containers, so I can put them in recycling.
â€¢ As long as I’m at it, I should probably see what I can do about relocating the yarn that I’ve been shoving into the pantry cupboard just to keep it out of Sparky’s paws.
â€¢ I need to unpack from my trip to my sister’s home.
â€¢ I have to do at least some cleaning before my niece comes for a three-night stay. (I loved staying with my Grandma when I was little, but I was always a bit afraid too, as she’d pretty much given up on battling cobwebs and there were daddy long-legs in all sorts of corners. When I was a kid, all spiders terrified me. I can now comfortably faceâ€”and relocateâ€”daddy long-legs, but anything larger still makes my stomach lurch and my hands sweat. At any rate, I don’t want my niece to consider a visit to my home a mixed blessing.)
