I'm crazy, I'm half way up the back of this sweater and I already bought more TOFUties to make a second sweater LOL

Could use a simple pattern, an idea or something to work my anger through and around to get an EX of mine out of my spirit.

Black Sheep update

I wrote a post about the Black Sheep Festival last week, attached a picture and before I could post it, it was swallowed up by the cyber demons! So here is a shorter version now that I am calmer.

I’m always afraid to start buying yarn, especially at a fiber fair as there is so much that looks yummy and like it wants to come home with me. I also get overwhelmed by the colors and the textures – I get nearly immobilized, which is good because not being able to move means that I can’t reach for my wallet. I also talk myself out of buying this particular skein because their might be something a little better at the next stall.

Cotton Blanket

I am about finished with a cotton blanket I've been working on. I intend to give it as a gift and I have a question about washing it. It's lace so I need to block it.
