Yarn Along: Bumps in the Road
Nejat's star blanket saw a little progress this week, but Yasmina's skirt has been put on hold because the gauge information in the pattern seems completely backward to me, and I can't get an answer from the designer. I may just try it as it makes sense to me and see how it works out from there. Since all my projects are either too big or too complicated for me to work on in the car or socially, I started this cafe curtain as a privacy screen for our bathroom. This project was planned last summer during our bathroom remodel and I'm just getting to it now. It also begins with 50 inches of a simple lace edging from which I will pick up the stitches for the curtain itself. I just finished eight inches so 42 more inches to go! It doesn't seem like I'm making much progress right now on any of my projects.
I picked up a book that I think I'll take back to the library. The concept was fun, for a light book, and I thought I would enjoy it, but I just can't get myself to care about any of the characters. If I can't get into the story by Thursday, it will go in the library bag for Friday.
Also posting to Keep Calm and Craft On.
It didn't improve a ton, but it wasn't so bad that I stopped reading it. It relied a bit too much on cliches and stereotypes, but there was some redemption in it, which I like.
