So I sent off the Papillon Scarf to the Purple Stitch Project, had there not been a huge line at the post office I would have taken a photo of it going into the mailer and with it all addressed, yes I am strange like that. But this means I can cross the first item off my YOP list! Yay!
I also worked on Liam's blanket a bit this week as we found ourselves taking a spur of the moment road trip to Belfast & Bar Harbor on Sunday & Monday. Which meant lots of car time. I probably could have utilized the car time for more crochet but I enjoyed talking with the husband and watching the scenery go by -- it was like a trip down memory lane as we have been to Belfast many times (I grew up there and my parent still live there) but I probably haven't been to Bar Harbor or any of the towns between Belfast & Bar Harbor for 10-15 years, and never with Kevin so I was pointing out different things to him.
I even went ahead and started a new YOP project! But only because all my WIPs were left in the truck the day before and Kevin took it to work with him yesterday so I found myself with time to crochet but no current WIPs.... So I started on my Crochet Purse. I do have to say though, I am not impressed with the way the pattern is written. I don't believe english is her first language and there seems to be a lot missing. Lets just say had I started this pattern when I bought it, right when I began crocheting, I probably wouldn't have continued with the purse or crochet even. Now I am a bit more experienced and able to guess as to what she actually means -- or what is missing from the pattern. I will crochet the next motif EXACTLY as the pattern is written and will post the comparison.
No work has started yet on Carson's Blanket crochet wise, however I did use my new ball winder and would up all the skeins into center pull cakes/balls.
That's it for me for this week. Check in with other's progress here.
