I wanted to check in before any more time went by...
I am still here, and still crocheting. Mostly on my new afghan - I'm probably 1/3 done now? Perhaps that's an optimistic estimate but I actually am making some progress.
And I do have a good excuse for my absence... (besides work, which I am also using as an excuse :)
We are moving. And my life looks like this right now:
Yes, my entire house is packed up in boxes until we actually move next Monday, (except for our bed, TV, couches, and my desk). We are only moving across town, but this really does feel just as inconvenient as if we were moving (again) across the country. Argh.
(Okay, maybe not as inconvenient, but still a pain.)
So we are in limbo' til next Monday - but life goes on don'tcha know.
Crochet is keeping me sane, though - and I am excited about another new project (yes, another). My sister just bought a beautiful new house and has asked me to crochet a small rug for in front of her kitchen sink. I really am super excited about it. I bought this yarn last night... it's Lily Sugar n' Cream 100% cotton. Yay cotton!
I found this lovely striping color in greens and blues, and some white skeins. Not 100% convinced yet that this is what I want to use, though. The color(s) are not what I pictured using, and I'm not sure that the striping yarn will look okay if I use multiple strands... but we'll see. Worst comes to worst, I'll stash it away for another project and start over.
(BTW, have I mentioned how much yarn I have to move across town? No? Well, never mind then... It's only, umm, a little. ;)
Also, please excuse the poor quality of these pics... I took them with my phone as my camera has also been packed away.
