New project sleeplessness
I was so excited last night that I couldn't sleep. I love new projects. Last night, I finished the open-work scarf that I made for myself out of left-over Brilliant. It's gorgeous. I also started working on my experimental shrug. But that's not why I was so excited that I couldn't sleep. Yesterday, I decided to experiment.
Okay...don't tell my boss, since one of the words I'm about to use could be considered sacrilege. But yesterday I went to JoAnn. I had a 40% off coupon that expires tomorrow, so I was going to use it. There, I found a nice pillow form for another fuzzy pillow for the living room (though I still don't know which colors to use). And I picked up a learn-to-crochet CD (I already make it through triple crochet, though I can't guarantee I'll be able to repeat them later). And while I didn't buy anything that could possibly compete with the beautiful things found in the place I work (not that I can afford most of them...), I did buy something for a new knitted project. I bought a remnant of bright orange felt. The intention was to cut it into strips and knit it into a bag (for which my mother will sew a really cool lining). I haven't worked out all the details yet, but Paul cut it all up last night, and it's now sitting on the sofa, rolled up into a nice big ball, ready for working... I'm so excited, I can hardly think. :)
