Finished Objects: A Yarny Retrospective

 

Only 19 this year. A big cross-country move followed by weeks and weeks of debilitating nausea really didn’t lend itself to finishing many projects, although I am happy with what I did manage to finish. Catkin came out beautifully and is one of those things I should probably start keeping in my purse to cover my shoulders in stores that have the AC going full blast. Of course, baby sweaters, although I probably won’t need them, haha.¬†Hopefully I can finish up a few more baby things (hats and socks, likely) before I deliver in the spring.

Some Things: An Update

1. When we finally ventured out after TS Irene blew through, we discovered a tree down on our street:

Thankfully, it was considerate enough to fall away from the wires. We would have certainly lost power if it had fallen the other way.

2. Today, I made one of these:

What is it, you ask?

A Kindle cover for my new Kindle (which arrived just this week)! I used this pattern from Etsy and I am so happy with it. I am also happy with my Kindle. Now I can take all my books wherever I go, and in a stylish cover too. I love living in the future!

3. I have a bunch of stuff on the Kindle, but right now I am reading Boneshaker by Cherie Priest. Steampunk/Zombies=awesome!

4. I have made serious progress on my sister’s shawl! I have only half repeat of the tiny triangles left to go! And then it’s on to the edge! I’m so thrilled and excited I can’t tell you. No pictures, right now though. It still looks like a blue blob.

5. It’s Labor Day weekend! Thank a union.
