YoP 39



Hello, my friends.  I don't have a lot to talk about today.  It has been a quiet week at work, home and on the crafting front.

I did however complete the bed socks.
They will be gifted to their rightful owner either on Easter or on Mother's Day.  Haven't decided yet.  I do like the way they turned out.  Still do not like the fiber though.  I will not ever buy any of it again.  On the plus side, this is the first 100% wool that I have worked with that I did not have issues with my skin breaking out in a rash or even itching.  I don't know what they did to the fiber, but that was great for me.

I did not touch anything else this week, crafting wise.  I am hoping I can get back to my socks this afternoon and get a nice portion of the legs done.  I am feeling startitis hitting me and I am trying so hard not to succumb to it.  It is hard though.  Seems like every time I complete a project, I just want to start 3-4 more.  I have been really good about not doing that this YoP, but the urge is still there.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.  Next weekend is Easter and that is the busiest week of the year for hubby and I because of our involvement at our Church.  I don't know if there will be a post next week or not.  In fact, there may not be a post for the next two weeks.  We are totally booked on the weekends, until the weekend of the 18th/19th.  Hopefully I will get some crafting time in the next two weeks and have something to show for it.

Right now, I am off to do some clothes shopping for the upcoming Easter weekend and the weekend after that my son and his wife are having they marriage con validated in the church so need something for that day too.  I am just not a fancy clothes person.  Give me blue jeans and tee shirts and I am one happy camper.  

I also have the privilege to provide the ring pillow for the con validation ceremony.  So need to get on that right away.  I am hoping to find a ready made one at Michael's or Joann's today.  I will personalize it with ribbon in their colors.

So off I go....................................Happy Crafting!

  3. I think Spring is a busy time for everyone...I know it is for me but for different reasons.
    I love your bed socks. Down here we call them golf socks. LOL!
    I don't dress up but I could use some new duds! Happy Spring to you!

  4. The weekends do seem to fill up this time of year, don't they? I hope you have a Blessed Easter and a wonderful time at the wedding ceremony. Your bed socks are sure a beautiful color--too bad you hate the yarn! Happy Spring too....
